ITC Holdings Corp., the country's largest independent electricity transmission company, recently built a 188,000-square-foot headquarters in Novi, Mich., including a new operations control room. To achieve sufficient display resolution on the control room's 2,000-square-foot screen, integrator IGI called for redundant, twin-stacked Sony 4K SXRD series projectors instead of dozens of display cubes, saving 70 percent on the cost of the display system. Because ITC's control room systems weren't capable of addressing so many pixels, IGI developed a work-around that combined RGB Spectrum MediaWall and Nvidia Quadro Plex processors to bridge the gap.

Elsewhere, IGI designed a digital signage and video network of 20 Sony LCD screens and separate rear-projection display systems in the company's boardroom and auditorium (using Christie and Digital Projection systems, respectively). IGI also built three specially designed collaboration carts, mobile videoconferencing systems with 65-inch flat-panel displays, Polycom codecs, and other multimedia capabilities.
