2021 INTEGRATION AWARDS Immersive Experience
AVI-SPL:
MICROSOFT
WELCOME WALL
AVI-SPL pulls off a stunning
immersive welcome wall
experience for Microsoft in
less than two months.
By Alyssa Borelli
MICROSOFT'S EXECUTIVE Briefing Center
in Redmond, Wash., is a hub of innovation
and partnership. Within the building, the
software giant was renovating a customer-facing
area to showcase the innovative
solutions it creates in partnership with
major companies across all industries.
That goal would be fulfilled by a Planar
direct-view LED wall that AVI-SPL designed
and integrated.
Finding The Right Solution
This project came to AVI-SPL through
Green Room, an interior design firm hired
to renovate the space. They had designed
the space and had the concept for the
display and where it would be. Under
Microsoft's recommendation, AVI-SPL were
invited to design and integrate the visualization
display solution. Green Room and
Microsoft looked to AVI-SPL to design and
integrate a system that would meet a quick
turnaround and deliver the experience
This large, multifunctional, and seamless display wall can be programmed to welcome
different audiences and delivers the 'wow' factor to guests on guided tours of the area.
Microsoft was seeking.
The display solution is an eye-catching wall
of 151 modules with a total of 11,860,992
pixels. It also has seamless 90-degree corner
and custom trim on the edge to give it a
finished look. One of the benefits of wall's
design is that it is distinctive while also blending
in elegantly with the room.
Installation On A Short Deadline
A tight timeline was one of the biggest
challenges AVI-SPL had to overcome. AVISPL
succeeded, completing the project in
just two months. In doing so, the company
accomplished what other integrators told
Microsoft would not be possible. Early
in the process, the company walked the
customer and contractor through preparations
required for the wall, which would
include areas for the data cabling. Because
Microsoft wanted a video display that goes
to the floor, AV-SPL worked with Planar on
designing the ventilation system. Another
challenge was the getting the right

architectural look. AVI-SPL worked closely
with Planar, Microsoft, and Green Room to
develop the wall over several iterations.
As this is the centerpiece and primary focal
point as you enter our flagship EBC facility,
our goal was to peek curiosity, showcase innovation,
and influence the customer journey
... this assists in all of that!
" We truly put AVI-SPL to the test with this
project as our design changed two months
prior to delivery, " said Dave Buscarino,
Microsoft global design, technology and
infrastructure lead.
