Zero energy media wall

GreenPix is the first Zero Energy Media Wall, absorbing solar energy during the day and then powering the media wall at night. The panels can be used to create stunning media effects on very large building envelopes that are viewable from both inside and outside the building.

GreenPix is a transparent media wall for dynamic content display, including playback videos, interactive performances, live and user-generated content. The “intelligent skin” interacts with the building interiors and the outer public spaces using embedded, custom-designed software, transforming the building façade into a responsive environment for entertainment and public engagement.

GreenPix allows daylight into the building while reducing its exposure to direct sunlight. The photovoltaic density pattern increases the building’s performance, allowing natural light when required by interior program, while reducing heat gain and transforming excessive solar radiation into energy for the media wall. The photovoltaic system can be connected to local battery storage or to the grid and power can be sold back to the electricity company.
