November 27, 2019, Aurora Cannabis officially announces the grand opening of its experiential flagship store in West Edmonton Mall. The 11,000 square foot facility combines a retail cannabis store and an immersive experiential space.
Aurora Cannabis CEO, Terry Booth, explains, “Aurora is proud to call Edmonton home. It’s here where we established our roots and built our business. There’s no better place for us to open the doors to our flagship store.” We at LIGHTVU can relate to Booth’s reasoning as it aligns with why LIGHTVU continues to be based in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada.
As seen in the top photo, the LED digital container creates a unique, immersive digital signage experience. This 2 mm pixel pitch LED display solution required a complete custom build using three models of our Canadian-made Aurora Series LED cabinets.
The wall portion of the digital container has a 165″ diagonal and the resolution is 1,664 pixels by 1,290 pixels. The cabinets for the LED wall display connect seamlessly to the ceiling portion thanks to the carefully thought out design. The ceiling portion of the digital container has a 248″ diagonal and the resolution is 1,664 pixels by 2,688 pixels.
The menu board for the Aurora Cannabis Experiential Flagship Store is pretty snazzy to say the least. The 2 mm pixel pitch on the LED menu board allows this digital signage solution to effortlessly display every cannabis product available. The diagonal for this digital menu board is 285″ and the resolution is 3584 pixels wide by 512 pixels high. To put this into perspective, the wall is 24 feet wide by 3.5 feet tall.
The portrait display, bottom photo, has a 68″ diagonal and the resolution of the sign is 384 pixels by 768 pixels. The LED portrait solution features a 2 mm pixel pitch and is built by stacking two of LIGHTVU’s Canadian-made Aurora Series LED cabinets on top of one another.
We are extremely proud to have worked with Aurora and Digital EDGE Media on this project. The end result could not have been better. If you're in Edmonton, don't miss your chance to experience this unique retail environmentPricing
Simon Fraser University
Simon Fraser University has been in operation since 2003. The most recent expansion brought about the addition of a new building. AVI-SPL Vancouver did the audio visual integration for the massive project. Arguably the most eye-catching technology in the facility is the three beautiful LED digital display solutions in the two classrooms and lobby area.
The LED signage solution in the Tiered Classroom (top photo) has a diagonal of 316″ and the display features a 2.5 mm pixel pitch. The display is 25 feet wide by 8 feet high. Movies in class have never looked better... PowerPoint presentations look pretty fly as well.
The ultra wide screen, LED display solution in the Lecture Hall has a 385″ diagonal and features a 2.5 mm pixel pitch. As with any ultra wide screen display solution, the diagonal can be difficult to comprehend. The size of this classroom digital signage solution is 31.5 feet wide by 6.5 feet high. Rumor has it, students are still debating which of the two classrooms is best
The lobby sign (bottom picture) is one of LIGHTVU’s standard LED display solutions for post secondary and municipalities. Available as part of our digital message board program, the lobby display has a 183″ diagonal and a 3 mm pixel pitch. The display solution is perfect for any wall or bulkhead in meeting space and waiting area applications. The audio visual consultant on the SFU project said the three displays are phenomenal, especially the lobby display.
Simon Fraser University has raised the bar for Canadian universities. We want to do more projects like this to continue enhancing the learning experience for Canadian students.Pricing
For most churches, technology consists of a retro overhead projector displaying everything from prayers to hymns. So, when a church decides to enhance the experience by upgrading to stunning new technology, it’s understandably surprising and delightful for worshipers.
When Sherwood Park Alliance Church decided to embark on a modernization project a few years ago, they decided it was time to upgrade their AV. Having used projectors in the past, the church decided it was time to move to a dynamic, show-stopping LED display.
On the stage, is LIGHTVU’S Saturn series - Atlas model. The Atlas LED cabinets at SPAC feature front serviceable, magnetic LED modules with power supplies and receive cards being rear serviceable. The LED wall on the stage measures 38' wide by 16' high, with a pixel pitch of 3 mm.
At the back of the room is an overhead LED display that faces the stage. This LED display is our Aurora Series model, which is built in Canada - That's right. An LED display solution built in Canada. The size of SPAC's second LED digital display is 8' wide by 5' high and it has a pixel pitch of 4 mm.
“This church is modernizing at a time when technology can be adopted, taking advantage of the major changes to capabilities and technologies,” says Mark Silvius, LIGHTVU CEO.
With hundreds of worshipers attending the church every week, the modernization project positions SPAC as a forward-thinking institution.Pricing
McMaster University is in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The university has undergone countless upgrades over the years and the University Student Centre, which is the centre of student life and programming, was the focus of an impressive technology improvement in 2018.

On July 11th, 1963 the small city of Orillia in Ontario, Canada saw a new business opened it's doors. Webers Restaurant founded by Paul Weber Sr. began serving hamburgers and hot dogs that were so good the spot was destined to become an Ontario landmark. Operating right alongside Highway 11 and nested within walking distance to Lake Couchiching, it's the perfect place to enjoy a tasty treat and refreshing beverage for locals and those travelling through to the Muskoka's.
The restaurant attracted tens of thousands of customers during the summer months and much of the foot traffic had to cross busy Highway 11 to enjoy Webers delicious food. Not long after the Ministry of transportation installed a chain-link fence above the boxbeam barrier to curtail all the J-walkers... Webers was a major contributor in the construction of a pedestrian bridge built over the highway in 1983 so customers could get their burgers, hot dogs, and fries safely.
In 2019, Webers added some tech to their walkway by installing a double-sided LIGHTVU LED Displays that would play HD content and advertisements for all those walking through to see. This double-sided LED Display is built using our Aurora Series 1280mm x 800mm LED cabinets. To put the size of each modular cabinet in perspective each is the size of a 59" TV. The wall features a 2.5mm pixel pitch and pieces together in a 2 x 1 configuration. Again, double-sided.
The LED Display is brand new in the walkway. It's a nice sight to see as pedestrians cross the walkway on their way to devour a charcoal barbecued burger and famous milkshake. Be sure to stop in at Webers Restaurant this summer and don't miss your chance to check out this brand new LED video wall.Pricing
