To deliver an engaging sports presentation ADI installed a super-wide 32:9 aspect ratio screen, 122.5sqm in size and featuring 6mm resolution. Creating a dramatic backdrop to the competition floor, the screen was configured to offer multiple picture in picture formats, including 2 x 16:9 windows side by side, 1 x 16:9 window on a 32:9 background, and a cinematic style 32:9 with full screen graphics or VT.
Outside the venue, ticket-holders were greeted by a revolving Epoch 15 mobile LED screen, displaying event branding and information, alongside sponsor activation on its unique screen that seamlessly switches between landscape and portrait formats.
The Birmingham-based arena also featured a large, high resolution modular screen to provide dynamic image magnification and sports presentation for the international competition. The 60sqm display, featuring 6mm product, displayed multiple live data feeds and timings to keep spectators informed and engaged throughout the course of the day.
Ben Willcox, Event Technology Manager at British Gymnastics, commented,
ADI have been able to meet our requirements for both events, supplying large-scale, unique screens inside and outside the venues. The screens are crucial to the live experience for fans and ticket-holders, so it’s essential we work alongside experts in the field.
Nick Robinson, ADI’s Screen Rental Director, commented:
We’ve developed an incredible range of solutions for live sport environments, with some of the largest screens we’ve ever built featuring at the biggest events on the international gymnastics circuit. As the quality of sports presentation increases the platforms for delivery must also evolve, which not only means using high res LED but adding wow factor, with aspect ratios beyond traditional 16:9 and creative play-out solutions.
Since 2015 ADI have supplied both national and international gymnastics competitions, including the 2018 Glasgow European Championships, for which ADI worked in the capacity of Official Video Display Provider. A gigantic 225sqm screen in 4.6mm outdoor product delivered in excess of 10,500,000 pixels in a single display inside the SSE Hydro Arena and formed the largest, highest resolution modular display ever built in Scotland.
