Components

IMAGIC WEAVE® – a fusion of W.S. Tyler Architectural Mesh and state-of-the-art LED technology – is made from the following components:

Architectural Wire Mesh

Elements of high-quality stainless steel wire mesh are individually tailored to suit each media façade, providing an elegant carrier for the LED profiles.

Clip System

Easy-to-use, reliable, and specially developed for fast installation and maintenance, the clips grip around the LED profiles and hook securely into the architectural wire mesh.

LED Profiles

Molded and enclosed in a sleek body, the electronics are centrally encapsulated (IP 67) in the LED profiles. Each LED pixel can be controlled individually and display an infinite number of colors. The LED profiles are integrated by means of input and output connectors into a LED group.

Cabling

Communication and power transmission occurs between components at the 19-inch racks and the LED profile group. Depending on project parameters, intelligent distribution boxes are added to increase overall cabling flexibility and control options.

Video Server

Each media façade is as exciting and individual as its video content. IMAGIC WEAVE® is controlled by a powerful video server that facilitates:

+ Video sequencing via timeline

+ Pixel mapping

+ Receiving, processing, and
transmission of various protocols with
numerous interfaces

+ Time-controlled actions and functions

Video Converter

Used as a link in two-stage communication between the video server and LED profiles, the video converter is responsible for decentralized control functions. In addition, it is used for programming the façade geometry or individual LED points.

Power Supply

The IMAGIC WEAVE® LED profiles cannot directly operate with the mains voltage because they require a lower operating voltage. The power supply converts project-specific mains voltage into the operating voltage of the LED profiles.

Racks

Pre-assembled, tested, delivered, and designed for set-up in internal control rooms, the racks consist of a steel frame with 19” insertions, two doors for maintenance and service, and one ventilator unit on top. The video server, video converter, and power supply are installed into the racks.

Accessories

In addition to standard components, there are a variety of specialized components to enhance each project. Your project can be supplemented with individual control components (backup video server, smartphone operation) or safety components (USV, temperature sensors).

Please feel free to contact one of our experts to discuss your project.


Operations

The control concept of IMAGIC WEAVE® is as individual as each project. Various degrees of automation are possible. With complete automation, the system regulates operation based on time and program sequences and features sensors for brightness and temperature. Or, customers can opt for manual control.

We are happy to work with you on your individual control concept. We will pre-program your system during software commissioning and then prepare you with our project-specific customer training program. 


Attachment LED Profiles

We emphasized a simple assembly concept during the development of the IMAGIC WEAVE® media façade system. 

Our research and development led to our proprietary, proven clip system.

The simple solution allows individual LED profiles to be discreetly attached to the reverse side of the architectural mesh façade.


Project-Specific Adjustment

The clip system is adapted to suit the specific mesh type for each project; therefore, we can guarantee a flexible mounting solution, specifically equipped to suit the requirements of your project.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

The clip system is adapted to suit the specific mesh type for each project; therefore, we can guarantee a flexible mounting solution, specifically equipped to suit the requirements of your project.

Secure Attachment

The actual number of clips required per LED profile is based upon the technical requirements of each project, assuring a secure fix in all conditions.


Mesh

Our architectural woven wire mesh is tailored to suit the specific needs of your project. 

With a wide range of stainless steel wire mesh and numerous LED pixel pitches, the transparency of the mesh can be varied. 

Depending on lighting conditions and viewing angle, our architectural wire mesh can appear transparent or closed.


Your benefits at a glance

Seamless Fits

When selecting the wire mesh type, we confirm that the opening is compatible with the favored LED pitch.

The size of the wire mesh opening depends on the LED pitch and vice versa.

For example, if a horizontal pixel pitch of 50mm for the LEDs is used, the pitch of vertical wires and cables should be 50mm or 100mm.

Flexible Mesh Dimensions

All architectural meshes are manufactured for each project. The maximum width of the mesh is 9.8 feet. The length is unlimited and can be adapted to the project.

Customized Wire Mesh

If our standard architectural mesh specifications don’t fit your project’s parameters, then we can develop a specification that will.

Stade Pierre Mauroy

The most advanced multi-purpose stadium Stade Pierre Mauroy, earlier referred to as Grand Stade Lille Métropole, is clad with IMAGIC WEAVE® transparent media façade by W.S. Tyler. There are three different areas of varying resolution, each providing the optimum requirement for playing the media.
