Fremont Street Experience Canopy
www.watchfiresigns.com/fremont-street

Watchfire’s product for Fremont Street included perforations in modules to let daylight illuminate the street below and allow air circulation, critical for heat dispersal. High contrast materials and an innovative light trapping design make it possible to run content during the day, something that was impossible with the old design. The modules used can be trimmed to fit the canopy’s shape and are designed to handle extreme desert conditions. The canopy stayed in operation during the installation, which required running synchronously off 2 different video systems.  Watchfire created a new control system that could reliably handle playback across the 16k pixel width of the completed canopy and run the display in eight synchronized sections. The final system resides in the FSE control room with full diagnostics.
