KC Zoo Helzberg Penguin Plaza Exhibit LED Wall


AVIES was selected to design, fabricate, and install a high-end LED Billboard System at the Kansas City Zoo’s new world-class Penguin Exhibit opened at the end of 2013.

AVIES created and installed the custom steel-grid mounting structure for the 10’ x 7.5’ LED display with redundant safety features, then assembled and installed the LED display including all networking, audio and video cabling required. AVIES engineers’ skillful delicate touch with heavy equipment and specialized custom tools led to an event-free, on-schedule, on-budget completion of the project.

The LED display used was an Absen IP65 rated 10mm pitch A1040 display featuring surface-mount LED technology. The project specification required an outdoor sound system to accompany the video. AVIES utilized Peavey speakers, Lab-Gruppen amplification and Keywest Technology Digital Signage players and Keywest Technology streaming receivers for the full audio and video experience.

The impressive display runs daily at the KC Zoo…check it and the penguins out next time you’re in the area--neither will disappoint!
