Supernova Flex Classic - just what the doctor ordered!
Ultra-wide viewing angles, bright ambient lighting, and the need for visual harmony alongside monitors. These were the challenges that Meritec and Visual Displays successfully overcame with dnp Supernova Flex Classic Screens in our Installation of the Month at Stryker’s Limerick facility in Ireland.
Stryker, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of medical equipment, wanted to place retractable screens alongside its monitors in the staff cafeteria at its Limerick facility. They called on Meritec, a leading AV integrator in Ireland, to help turn this ambition into reality.
It quickly became clear that there were a whole range of challenges to address. Not only did Stryker want an elegant retractable screen solution but, to avoid visual discomfort, they needed the image quality to be compatible with that of the high-quality monitors which would sit beside the new screens. Since the layout in Stryker’s cafeteria combines very wide viewing angles and an abundance of natural light, this presented a challenge for Meritec’s system designers.
Meritec’s Senior Engineer, Chris Davis, turned to dnp’s UK & Ireland distribution partner, Visual Displays for help. “They recommended and supplied two dnp Supernova Flex Classic Screens, with best-in-class black levels and perfect colour balance,” says Davis.
Meritec’s in-house design team then created a bespoke ceiling-mounted housing unit to meet Stryker’s request for a retractable installation. With a high-quality finish and no visible mechanism, the screen appears to simply drop from the ceiling.
Easy and successful installation
“We delivered the new screens pre-fitted into the ceiling mount boxes, with the screen drop pre-set to Stryker’s requirement,” continues Davis. We were able to issue accurate drawings to the client’s facilities team and co-ordinate the install in a short period of time. This was really beneficial to us and the client in hitting the deadline for the project.” According to Stryker’s spokesperson, “The installation was very straightforward and the end result is fantastic.”
