Fan Experience is significantly enhanced by 40 NanoLumens® NanoSlim displays and 12 totally new “Transparent Visualization” displays developed by the pioneering tech leader.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, January 29, 2015 — Underscoring the increasingly important role its visual display solutions are playing in arenas around the country, NanoLumens®, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of indoor LED display solutions, today announced that 40 of its NanoSlim™ LED displays have been installed at TD Garden, with more to come, as part of a two-year comprehensive arena-wide renovation project.
What’s more, according to NanoLumens Vice President of Regional Sales Dana Michaelis, the NanoLumens solution at TD Garden includes the world’s first installation of the company’s next generation NanoLumens Transparent Visualization displays. On display in Legends, TD Garden’s newly renovated and largest restaurant, the new NanoLumens Transparent Visualization display utilizes state-of-the-art nano-optical particle diffusion. The NanoLumens Transparent Visualization displays allow objects to seamlessly float in space and are part of an increasing line of large-scale visualization solutions now being developed by the pioneering tech leader that introduced the world to flexible LED displays.
“NanoLumens isn’t simply a manufacturer,” Michaelis said today. “NanoLumens is a forward-looking visual solutions visionary that has a very deep research and development capability. We are demonstrating this capability in a significant way with the installation of our first Transparent Visualization displays in a major arena installation. Earlier this year, we installed our first Transparent Visualization display at a major cosmetics company’s retail locations, but today marks the first major commercial installation of multiple Transparent Visual displays.”
The NanoLumens displays were installed at TD Garden by HB Communications, the North Haven, Connecticut based audio-visual systems integrator that prides itself on creating human connections in a virtual world. “Our partnership with NanoLumens allowed us to think very strategically and very creatively to develop a complete visualization solution that would redefine the fan experience at TD Garden,” explained HB Communications CEO Dana Barron. “NanoLumens’s has long offered customers the most selection of display options in any size, shape, or curvature, but the commercialization of its transparent visualization technology takes the company to a whole new level.”
“Delaware North and the Jacobs family are committed to bringing fans a first-class experience at the TD Garden,” said Lorraine Spadaro, VP of Technology at TD Garden. “The Nanolumens technology provides exceptional functionality, delivering architecturally flexible display canvas for our hi-res digital content for our fans and corporate clients. These major investments in cutting edge technology and infrastructure have helped us maintain the arena’s industry-leading status as we approach our 20-year anniversary.”
This privately financed, two-year transformation at TD Garden includes renovations of the level 4 and 7 concourse, development of a new ProShop on level 2 of the arena, comprehensive renovation of Legends, and upgraded technology infrastructure throughout. Despite a busy construction schedule, the TD Garden will remain open throughout the renovations with limited construction impacts.
Design of the renovations to the concourse, the arena’s largest fan gathering areas, is being led by Rossetti Architects, a renowned sports and hospitality architecture firm. Rossetti’s goal is to infuse the rich history of the City of Boston, the Bruins and the Celtics with modern technology that activates fan engagement physically and digitally and that brings sponsorship activation to life.
