The eWall was unveiled on Wednesday, Sept. 25 by Queen Máxima of The Netherlands and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during the General Assembly of the UN. The eWall was designed by the architects of the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), as part of a renovation of the North Delegates Lounge - a donation from the government of The Netherlands to the United Nations. The North Delegates Lounge plays a key role in the workings of the UN as an unofficial meeting space where conversation is unrecorded and informal.
With E Ink-based displays, the eWall provides delegates with scheduling, news and other relevant information when needed; has a design mode showing high resolution large scale images; or can fade seamlessly into an unobtrusive wall when turned off.
The eWall is an intricate combination of architectural, display and network engineering. It stands about 6 meters wide with 231 tiled 7.4" displays arranged in a grid of 33 displays across by 7 displays high. With an overall resolution of 26,400 x 3,360 pixels, the eWall is the largest E Ink-based ePaper display in the world. Yet it consumes little power to operate.
