The Deutsche Welle Television network has installed a curved eyevis videowall in one of its studios to provide background images for live newscasts.
The videowall, made up of 144 high-resolution LED modules and a pixel pitch of 2mm, was installed under the direction of the integrator BFE Studio und Medien Systeme GmbH. The 24sqm videowall will display images, graphics and videos to support the new English channel of Deutsche Welle.
The studio in Berlin will be in operation by mid-June and broadcasting globally soon after. The premiere will be embedded into a festive ceremony in front of over 2,000 guests at the Global Media Forum, the international media congress of Deutsche Welle (22–24 June 2015).
The LED modules can be adjusted to the studio lighting conditions thanks to the integrated image processing electronics. The videowalls can be accessed from the front, which means no space for rear access is necessary allowing the LED modules to be installed close to the studio wall.
To control the LED videowall there is a Crestron media control system including touchpanels, and rendering systems by Vizrt allow social media elements to be embedded into live graphics. They can also be used to create augmented reality graphics in Studio 3. In connection with the actually existing LED wall in the studio, virtual graphics or live-feeds can be placed in the room without blue-screen backgrounds being necessary.
