So the solution we initiated was a large screen installation. This installation is completely next level and is a really exciting addition to the facilities at the ice arena for both the fans and the Storm organisation.
A large screen offers a high enough brightness to be easily viewed while the full game lights are on and so becomes a resource that can be used throughout the game night.
We selected this particular screen type based on a number of key specifications:
- All components are housed in weather tight casing – meaning their environment is controlled.
- Offers a higher definition of picture.
A lot of commercial screens have pixels which are 8mm apart. We were concerned about this due to the speed on movement on the ice perhaps leading to a blurred or grainy effect. So we spec’d quite a bit higher at 2mm pixel distance to give a higher definition even when viewed at an acute angle.
- Auto-switches on as soon as there is a feed.
It is important that resources such as these are easy to just set-up and use and an auto-switch on offers just that … just add an input and away to go.
- Tied into the existing audio system.
- It is a modular installation.
We had a certain space available, due to the position of the beams on the side of the building, and with this system we could build to the available size. This set-up also allows for expansion of screen size or replacement of panels if required and basically just helps to future-proof the whole system.
Due to these specifications this particular screen type can be fitted almost anywhere allowing us to choose the optimal placement and location to meet the needs of the client.
