Aurora Cannabis

Location: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

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 features a retail cannabis store in a unique 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.”

The LED digital container, seen in the top photo, creates an immersive digital signage experience. This 2 mm pixel pitch LED display required a completely custom design using three models of the Canadian-made Aurora Series LED panels.

The wall of the digital container has a resolution of 1,664 pixels by 1,290 pixels and the ceiling portion has a resolution of 1,664 pixels by 2,688 pixels. The LED panels connect seamlessly together to bring to life the bezeless LED video wall.

The menu board in Aurora Cannabis's Experiential Flagship Store is pretty snazzy to say the least. 2 mm pixel pitch allows this digital signage solution to effortlessly display every cannabis product available. 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 resolution of the sign is 384 pixels by 768 pixels. The LED portrait solution also features a 2 mm pixel pitch and is built by stacking two Aurora Series LED panels on top of one another.

We are extremely proud to have manufactured the LED display solutions for this project. If you're in Edmonton, don't miss your chance to experience this unique retail environment

Location: Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada

For most churches, technology consists of a retro overhead projector displaying prayers and hymns. 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 LED Video Wall. The Atlas LED panels 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 one of the Aurora Series Signage Bundles, which are built from the ground up 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.

With hundreds of worshipers attending the church every week, the modernization project positions SPAC as a forward-thinking, modern house of worship.

Location: Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada

The Agora Room at Strathcona County Community Centre is home to these two awesome LED displays. This perfect match was made possible by the leaders of Strathcona County, who wanted to set the facility apart from other halls and community centres around Alberta.

The decision was made to turn to LED technology as a solution for displaying high quality videos and dynamic presentations. The Agora Room in Strathcona Country Hall uses their LED video displays during town meetings, community events, and conferences. These two LED digital signs are arguably the center piece for the entire facility.

The LED video walls have a diagonal of 232", measure 17' wide by 10' high, and display stunning content on a daily basis. The pixel pitch on the LED digital displays is 3 mm, which is perfect for the Agora Room as the minimum viewing distance is generally five meters. That is unless of course visitors move in closer to admire the professional design of the video walls.

Would a similar LED display solution work for you? If you're in Edmonton, a trip to The Agora Room is worth it to see the technology installed in the main county hall. We'd love to create more side by side LED displays like the two in the Agora Room.



Location: Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada

This double-sided outdoor beauty lives at Truck and Trailer (TNT) in Lloydminster, Alberta. TNT became aware of LIGHTVU's brand and decided on us as the manufacturer to design their outdoor double-sided LED digital billboard. The displays cycle through perfectly timed content and promotions with help from a remote content management system.

LIGHTVU's outdoor LED product continues to help TNT showcase their brand to the world with the back to back LED signs mounted to an awesome pylon that was custom-made for TNT.

TNT was in the market for a replacement LED display soon after their old sign was damaged in a wind storm. Impressed with the durability of outdoor LED panels, TNT moved forward with confidence that digital was the way to go. The outdoor LED solution is fed through a purpose built outdoor LED controller, which is kept safe from the elements by a certified NEMA enclosure.

The TNT double-sided outdoor LED billboard display sign is standing strong today and continues to display messages with explosive colours, contrast, and brightness.

The Royal Alberta Museum opened in 1967 and has hosted 13,791,155 and counting since then. In 2011, the Government of Alberta decided it was time to upgrade and built a new building set to open in 2018 in Downtown, Edmonton, Alberta. The buildings design resulted in an incredible opportunity to showcase our ability to offer a custom curved LED display solution. The curved LED menu board can be seen as guests walk through the main lobby of the museum.

Using the Canadian-made Aurora Series panels, LIGHTVU created this custom curved wall with fully custom resolution. The display makes a lasting impression on anyone who visits the new and highly-anticipated Royal Alberta Museum.

"It would have been an obstacle for many companies to do a curve like the one we did [with the LED screen], but LIGHTVU stepped up to the plate and knocked it right out of the park. There was potential [for a challenge], but I can confidently say the project was a success." - Project Consultant.

For the millions of locals and tourists who visit the Royal Alberta Museum in the years to come, LIGHTVU’s curved LED display will be the first thing they see before going on to learn about Alberta’s incredible history.

webers walkway

Location: Orillia, Ontario, Canada

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 panels. 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.
