An investigation into alternative Media Wall solutions for the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Sayson, Michael; Lee, Sebastian; Liu, Sean; Fudimov, Andriy


The UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences Building contains an interactive exhibit called, The Story of Medicine. Part of that exhibit consists of the UBC Impact Media Wall. The wall however, has problems relating to the component lifespan, energy consumption, display and software. As such, this report seeks to nd an alternative Media Wall product to succeed the current MediaWall and by using a triple bottom line analysis, examining the environmental, economic and social impacts, to determine if the alternative product is a suitable replacement. Filtering through the various available Media Wall technologies using this criterion, three products: Christie MicroTiles; the Planar Clarity Matrix; and the NEC Ultra-Narrow Professional-Grade Large-Screen Display are suitable candidates for replacing the current Media Wall. In doing further research this report recommends that the Planar Clarity Matrix is to be implemented as the new Media Wall for The Story of Medicine exhibit at the UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences Building.
