Massteknik LED Screens at Kristiansand Stadium
Scandinavia’s leading AV rental and installations integrator, has installed two
digiLED LED video screens at FC Start’s new stadium in
Two widescreen displays each measuring 7m high x 4 m wide were
installed at either end of the stadium using digiLED’s latest effective
resolution digiLED d12 modules. The digiLED d12 module offers a 25mm physical,
12.5mm effective, pixel pitch. The bespoke modules were specifically designed to
suit FC Start’s stadium, maximising the screen size in the available space.
Measuring 1 m wide x 1 m high x 0.140 m deep, the 7 x 4 module configuration
provides a screen with an effective resolution of 560 x 320 pixels.
The digiLED d12 screens are controlled by Omnivex Director feeding
live camera, graphics and other sources to the screens. The Ominvex system,
located in the control room, connects to the screens via fibre optic cables.
The screens are mounted on steel structures designed and built by Massteknik.
Once the screen supports were in place, the digiLED modules were easy to
install and installation was completed in just one day.
Space limitations, in terms of the size of screens the stadium
could accept, might have meant that image quality could have been compromised.
However, digiLED’s effective resolution technology increases the total pixels
available for processing by a factor of four. As a result, from comparatively
low physical resolution screens, FC Start’s fans now experience a visual feast
of detailed video images, graphics and text.
“FC Start and the fans are delighted with the new digiLED screens.
These screens are a cost effective solution for stadium owners who are
concerned about price but who don’t want to compromise on quality. The digiLED
screens offer just that. What’s more, working with a manufacturer that has such
vast experience in the stadium and arena market is always a bonus,” says
Kenneth Paterson, managing director of Massteknik.
