I-X Center

As the 9th largest convention center in the world at over 2.2 million square feet, Cleveland’s I-X Center has been hosting the region’s top events, shows, conventions, and exhibits for more than 25 years.

Originally built in 1942 as a General Motors factory producing bomber aircraft during World War II, the facility was known as the Cleveland Bomber Plant. The B-29 Superfortress wing assembly and experimental XP-75 were built in this facility, as well as a number of tanks including the M41 Walker Bulldog, M56 Scorpion, Howitzer, and Sheridan.

With nearly 1 million square feet of exhibition space, the I-X Center hosts over 200 events, and 2 million visitors per year. It even features a 125’ tall indoor ferris wheel which was the largest of its kind in the world when built.

SoundCom installed a number of large format LED display systems as part of networked digital signage system for Park Corporation, the operator of the facility.

Large Format Led Digital Signage
The enormity of the I-X Center required an equally enormous digital signage solution. Additionally, the solution had to be incredibly flexible to accommodate a wide range of events hosted at the facility.

A total of 22 large format NanoLumens displays were installed at the I-X Center ranging in various sizes and shapes. Displays range from the massive 30’x17’ and 17’x12’ flat panels to 88’’ tall by 8’ diameter column wraps and 8’ double sided circle displays. The I-X Center now has a portfolio of signage solutions to meet virtually any major events needs.

SoundCom installed seven NanoLumens NanoWrap LED displays measuring 8’ tall and 8’ in diameter along the main support columns known as the Pavilion Line. This invisible line separates the food court from the main exhibition space and makes a dramatic visual impact to all guests entering or leaving the venue.

Most of the displays are designed to be moved throughout the facility on large, custom built carts so they can be run at floor level or elevated to the ceiling structure for various purposes including signage, advertising, or I-mag.

All the displays are driven by BrightSign XD series media players which are centrally located at the system headend. Content is managed by a powerful and scalable Sierra Media server with a full content management system. This gives the I-X Center staff an easy to use interface to manage and control content being distributed to each of the displays, regardless of the show configuration.

An extensive fiber network was deployed throughout the I-X Center exhibition floor to support this new deployment with drop locations strategically placed to enable displays to operate virtually anywhere, for any show. Multiple displays can even be configured and arranged together to create a unique and compelling visual experience bringing even greater flexibility to the overall solution.
