Reprogram of the Crestron system including graphics and logic. iPad mini touch panels were added for control. Installed updated back-end and created custom content for the video wall. Upgraded and expanded Kaleiedescape system.


Video Wall

BigFish already had a huge 2 wide x 10 high Planar video wall capable of displaying the same image repeated multiple times down the wall. Liquid was commissioned to expand on this and create seamless video sequences that could run all the way from the top of the wall to the bottom. Along with this, we were asked to simplify the control from the Crestron system.

In order to accomplish this, Liquid replaced the existing signage players with new Brightsign players. We organised multiple production shoots utilising a Red Epic 4K video camera and lens kit to capture the custom content. Scenes were shot at a local waterfall and also at Kelly Tarlton’s sealife Aquarium. The end result was stunning custom footage that could run seamlessly over the entire surface of the wall.


Complete re-program of the Crestron system including graphics and logic. Added iPad mini’s to replace existing touch panels.

Audio Video Server

Upgraded video server with Kaleidescape 3RU server and replicated all existing content onto the new server.
