GRAND DÉPART 2017 IN DÜSSELDORF

Every year, the Tour de France kick-off event attracts hundreds of thousands of sports enthusiasts. The premiere of the Grand Départ in Düsseldorf was eagerly awaited by organisers, residents and fans. More than a million spectators came to the metropolis to witness the beginning of the high-profile cycling race live. In order to be technically equipped for this high volume of visitors, Screen Visions, together with the city of Düsseldorf’s technical and logistical director Rainer Schüler and his colleague Thomas Krämer, analysed the sound and LED screen requirements for the hotspots.

The team of twenty experts in LED, sound, direction and signalling ensured that each and every fan was reached both visually and acoustically at the seven locations of the city district. A key element of the project was the central transmission onto all video walls. This took place via an internal and encrypted DVB-T network directly from the TV compound at the Messe Düsseldorf. A 50-metre-high climber with a central directional antenna was used. A DVB-T receiver plus a backup were placed on each video wall, so that each wall could be supplied with the live image for RT1, ARD and Saarländischer Rundfunk. Additionally, general information about the event as well as safety instructions were broadcast centrally or, as required, individually sent to the respective locations.
