Hewlett Packard Enterprise Adds Outdoor LED Spectacular to Houston Campus

HOUSTON—Computer technology giant Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) recently completed the exterior phase of a digital display upgrade to its global headquarters just north of Houston. The cutting-edge digital signage network, which now includes an assortment of indoor and outdoor LED video from SNA Displays, provides immersive experiences, artistic and inspirational pieces, branded creative, workplace and client information, and other dynamic content.

Technology integration company i.e.Smart Systems oversaw the entire project, from the first phase of interior direct-view LEDs to the new outdoor LED spectacular.

“The client procured motorized projection technology for the outdoor display enhancement, but after the indoor phase they opted for a design that also included large-format LED,” said Jeff Vinklarek, senior vice president of i.e.Smart Systems. “While the projection technology is still set up and utilized for special events, the dvLED is always available, always bright, and always stable in the environment. And the result speaks for itself. Standing in the lobby you can now look out to see this giant LED wall with beautiful colors in addition to all of the amazing display technology throughout the office. We’re extremely happy with it and so is the client.”

The massive display is mounted to a building façade and overlooks a huge courtyard between the HPE building and the parking structure to which it is mounted. The new large-format LED spectacular is a 12 mm EMPIRE™ Exterior video display with approximately three-and-a-half thousand square feet of digital canvas. It measures approximately 39 feet tall by 90 feet wide (1,000 x 2,280 pixels), processing nearly 2.3 million pixels.

“Stepping onto HPE’s Houston campus and being greeted by such a large and striking video canvas forges a powerful first impression,” said Jason Helton, executive vice president at SNA Displays. “It definitely creates a high-tech ambiance and lets visitors and employees know without question that they are entering a cutting-edge environment.”
