As Official Provider of Large Video Displays to the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, ADI has supplied more than 900m of LED screen hardware across 12 competition and non-competition venues.
The largest sporting event to be held in Scotland since the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games features a combination of ADI’s mobile and modular LED screens – in addition to plasma displays – to suit the specific indoor and outdoor locations.
Nick Robinson, ADI’s director of screen rental commented: “Nine months of planning have come to fruition with diverse, tailored solutions across a variety of sports and cultural venues. We’ve been able to add value through centralised project management of the screens and HD video signal distribution across all 12 locations. Our delivery of market-exclusive mobile and modular LED provides the very best quality to enhance production values and audience experience, while creating impactful digital platforms that elevate the European Championship’s brand and all associated partners.”
A variety of custom modular projects have been designed and built by ADI for the Games; The SSE Hydro features a 225m screen in 4.6mm outdoor product, delivering in excess of 10 million pixels in a single display. This creates a vast digital backdrop to the gymnastics, providing image magnification and supporting the broadcast of multiple live data feeds and timings.
At Toll Cross International Swimming Centre – which has a capacity of 5,000 spectators – over 145m of high resolution screens are located around the venue, complimented by a 46m stretch of digiBOARD signage along the full length of the poolside to deliver exposure for brand partners.
With a range of screens that vary from 12m to 120m – along with innovative design features – ADI have specified mobile screens to suit the event staging and audience size at 10 locations. Glasgow Green, which hosts the cycling road race championships and Go Live @ The Green, features an iCONIC 25 – the biggest LED screen on a non-HGV chassis – and the iCONIC 60S, which not only features a large 60m display but has the added bonus of a 25m stage that un-folds from the trailer.
