360° LED Screen-Installation in Cologne
Innlights realized 130 sqm LED with smartphone control .
In the new, expanded InCavall „VIP Club“ on the Cologne Ring, the modern interior design and the large-format LED screens create a completely variable, virtual room that can be controlled with a smartphone. Depending on the theme of the event, the guests immerse themselves in a dynamically animated world of images and videos. The implementation and conception on the one hand, as well as the technology and installation on the other hand, were realized by the Wuppertal company Innlights Displaysolutions. The Innlights LED product InnScreen S3, with a material thickness of only 42 mm, was used here. The LED modules were mounted directly on the drywall and can be easily inspected from the front. For safety reasons, fire-resistant Macrolon panes were installed as an overlay for the LED screens. The media installation in the Cologne club InCavall extends over a length of 53 meters with different image heights. The technical specifications of InnScreen S3 demonstrate their outstanding quality using Black Face LED technology for indoor use: fine pixel pitch of 3.9 mm, wide viewing angle of 140° vertically and horizontally, very good brightness of up to 1,200 cd/sqm and a high refresh rate of 3,840 Hz. The low power consumption of an average of 216 W/sqm is a great advantage given the long operating times of the permanently installed LED technology. The media installation is supplemented by a further 18 sqm with two impressive LED panels on the counter and on the DJ desk. The feed via a total of eleven Full HD containers is controlled via the Innlights software Remote Control App (Innlights RCA). Kolja Birkenbach from Innlights: „We made a conscious effort to ensure that the feed via smartphone or tablet is easy for the customer to use, so that content-related program changes and customizations can be made on site at any time and without specialist knowledge.“ This means a networked RCA system for the installation with master/slave synchronization. The customer can call up different moods and also edit text via overlay, which can be animated over all LED image surfaces using an alpha channel. TRENDCARD, as the supervising agency, is responsible for the import of current themed image programs and thus supports the constant further development of the LED image world. As part of a service contract, the Innlights ServiceDesk 24/7 is responsible for the technical control of the extensive media installation. This ensures for the customer that the technology is permanently monitored, including an on-site service in the event of any malfunctions, without the customer having to take any action. TRENDCARD managing director Thomas Klem is very satisfied with the result: „The unlimited possibilities of visual digitization, in connection with the modern and stylish architecture, make the InCavall a special place in downtown Cologne. We provided project management, media technology, electrical and fire protection planning and installation. For operation, we also supplied the server structure with the necessary IT processes, including the camera system, with which we can monitor the quality of the media installation at all times. With the experience gained in this project, we will now specifically promote 360° media installation projects.“
