Saint Xavier University’s Center for Instructional Design and Academic Technology (CIDAT) recently completed its Video Wall, a high-tech electronic display for showcasing student artwork. The Video Wall was recently highlighted in AV Technology magazine.
The Video Wall was part of the redesign of the lower level of the Warde Academic Center, which also included small private study rooms, state-of-the-art classrooms, a coffee bar, and a lounge area for students.
The Wall, which was installed by Conference Technologies, Inc., is a group of multiple video monitors spanning approximately 10 feet by 12 feet. It was designed to display SXU students’ artwork on a rotating schedule.
“The idea came about when we were looking for something to anchor the lounge,” said CIDAT Director Chris Zakrzewski. “We wanted to put something up that was dramatic so when you looked up at the space your eyes were drawn to it.”
Zakrzewski said the University plans to include work from all students on the Wall and will create an advisory group to sort through submissions during the fall semester.
