Delta’s LED display provides a spectacular backdrop to Space Shuttle Atlantis and creates a visual simulation of the space shuttle orbiting Earth. The 20-foot high, 110-foot wide 8mm indoor LED display consists of over 800 I-8 LED tiles for a total resolution of nearly 3 megapixels. Delta’s use of the finest LED diodes and components allows for perfect uniformity with consistent color and superior contrast. Its wide viewing angles insure that every visitor will have an amazing view, regardless of their location inside the exhibit hall.

“Delta’s massive LED display adds a feeling of motion to an absolutely spectacular Space Shuttle experience,” stated Sat Narayanan, Vice President, Delta Displays Americas. “The display is a great fit for the space and the design and installation was perfectly executed by Electrosonic. We couldn’t be more proud of the results!”

“The level of support and cooperation that we received from the Delta Products group was outstanding. They were always available and very informative and thorough with all aspects of the system they provided. Extremely professional group and very solution oriented in their approach,” said Electrosonic Project Manager Gary Barnes.

Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit, which opened on June 29, 2013, is the newest attraction at the visitor complex dedicated to NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program. Tilted at a 43-degree angle, Space Shuttle Atlantis seems to float in space and can be seen from multiple viewpoints.
