Samsung Amplifies Vatican City Experience With Outdoor Audio and Video Solutions

Samsung outdoor LED signage and Harman Kardon audio solutions dazzle St. Peter’s Square visitors with stunning audio and visual quality


Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the installation of four outdoor LED displays — XHB series, two measuring 7.935m x 4.83m and two measuring 5.865m x 3.105m — for the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square. Featuring Harman Kardon embedded audio, the displays are situated throughout strategic points of the square to create a completely immersive experience that makes it easy for visitors to see and hear commencing events in premium quality.

With optimized brightness and contrast ratios for precise, true-to-life imagery, the XHB series gives spectators the power to engage in ceremonies and celebrations more deeply than ever before. The displays are IP66-certified, meaning visitors can enjoy clear audio and visual quality even in harsh weather conditions. In addition, the extremely compact 99.4 mm-thin housing makes the displays perfectly integrable in an iconic space such as St. Peter’s Square.

Harman Kardon audio uses Adaptive Sound technology to provide balanced panoramic audio throughout the space. The speakers convey crisp dialogues, even when the volume of voices is at a whisper.

“We at Samsung Electronics are excited to make our technological contribution and renew our engagement with Vatican City,” said Davide Corte, Head of IT Division, Samsung Electronics Italy. “The outdoor LED signages and audio solutions create an immersive audio and video experience to serve visitors as well as the communities of the Faithful. It is an honor for us to be present with the best of our technologies in such a unique and prestigious setting such as St. Peter’s Square.”

This installation builds on a previous collaboration between Samsung and Vatican City in 2020, where two indoor displays were installed in the Nervi Auditorium to help more visitors take part in the ceremonies.
