ADI delivered over 400sqm of high resolution LED, with two iCONIC 60s and two iCONIC 100+s screens located along the final furlong, facing onto the grandstands. An iCONIC 25+ was also positioned on-site, near to Ascot’s entrance and bandstand.

As the pilots took on the challenging course, the large mobile screens provided live footage of the action, including exclusive insights from inside the cockpits.


Nicolas & YoshiSince spectators were located in the safety zone – a distance from the course with its inflatable gates – the iCONIC screens provided an important visual element of the air race by ensuring great coverage, even when the planes were flying high above the racecourse.

The iCONIC 100+ screens still hold the title of world’s largest, highest resolution mobile LED displays, so they proved the perfect addition to the event.
