THE COURAGE TO CHANGE
The audience is standing in front of a stage. On the left hangs a LED screen, to the right another. There is definite potential here for an event – no question – but an element of surprise is sadly missing. In recent years, LED systems have greatly evolved. The requirements for extraordinary events using AV technology have changed significantly. Whether concert stages, screens at public screenings, vehicle presentations at trade or consumer fairs, or LED displays in sports arenas, operators are faced with a variety of options. “To find the right system for the event really calls for in-depth knowledge. As specialist planners and consultants, we are up on the latest trends in the industry. In fact, LED systems today are now no longer just an accessory but an integral part of the overall concept,” says Roger Rinke, Managing Director Screen Visions. The Stuttgart specialists therefore exchange information on an ongoing basis with designers, architects and stage designers – always searching for the best possible, customised results.
SPECIAL SOLUTIONS ARE NOW THE RULE
World-famous stars glide along exceptional catwalks or rock on spectacular turntables. Renowned automobile manufacturers present their innovations on LED floors. Industry trends make it possible: these materials are available in increasing quantities. The systems are also more resilient and are becoming more lightweight. While their weight was once somewhere between 90 and 100 kilogrammes per square metre, there are now only about ten kilogrammes. Flexibility is also gaining importance. Now, nothing stands in the way of convex and concave installations.
The image quality is also improving. The pixel pitches are now at one millimetre. All these developments are targeted at making bringing events to life even more amazingly, at appealing to all the senses and at ensuring that the events are unforgettable for the audiences.
In addition to fixed installations, mobile systems are also becoming more popular. Their special feature: easy transport and quick set up and dismantling are guaranteed. Solutions such as mobile trucks allow more flexibility. This includes the Vidibox, a patented outdoor LED video and audio system that is a presentation space, an LED screen and fair stand all in one.
