Projektionskunst trifft 108qm LED

Knapp zwei Monate lang strahlte das Kunstprojekt „Faces“ im Zentrum Düsseldorfs. Mittels Projection Mapping wurden Gesichter auf eine überdimensionale Maske gelegt. Flankiert wurde die beeindruckende Installation des Künstlers Jan Ising von zwei großen LED-Walls von Innlights.

Ernst, freundlich, lächelnd und mit Grimasse – Gesichter in diesen vier Ausdrücken zeigte das Projekt „Faces“ des Künstlers Jan Ising während des Düsseldorf-Festivals vergangenes Jahr. Die Botschaft: Egal, welche Hautfarbe wir haben oder wie wir aussehen, wir sind alle Menschen. Um das zu verdeutlichen wurde auf dem Burgplatz der Stadt eine acht Meter große Halbmaske aufgehängt. Täglich mit Anbruch der Dämmerung wurden dann über Projection Mapping-Technologie rund 400 zuvor aufgezeichnete Gesichter auf „einem Kopf“ gezeigt.

Tagsüber Werbung, abends Show

Teil der Installation waren zwei ebenso große LED-Walls, je 6 Meter breit und 9 Meter hoch, vom Dienstleister für LED-Installationen Innlights. Die jeweils 54qm großen LED-Walls zeigten über Tag Werbung für das Festival, das Projekt und dessen Sponsor Vodafone. Die genutzten Module waren vom Typ InnScreen y4 HE. Diese liefern laut Innlights tageslichthelle Bilder mit 3.300 cd/qm und dank der LED-Technologie „Nationstar Black Face 1921“ mit einem hohen 6.000:1 Bildkontrast. Bei einem Pixel Pitch von 4,81mm lag die Bildauflösung der fertigen LED-Walls damit jeweils bei 1.248 x 1.872 Pixeln. So waren die Bildinhalte aus nah und fern bestens zu sehen.

Abends wurden die LED-Walls parallel zum Projection Mapping-Event als flankierende visuelle Kulisse genutzt. Für die Zuspielung der LED-Videomotive kam die von Innlights entwickelte Remote Control Application (Innlights RCA) zum Einsatz. So konnte der Content über Smartphones und Tablets gesteuert werden. „Vom Trucking bis zur Übergabe erfolgte die Umsetzung aus einer Hand. Wir waren zuständig für die Planung und Installation der LED-Technik. Den Aufbau haben wir mit unseren Technikern, die alle als Industriekletterer ausgebildet sind, durchgeführt“, fasst Kolja Birkenbach, bei Innlights verantwortlich für die Planung des Projekts, die Realisierung zusammen.

New 60 qm high-end LED screen at CentrO

Innlights display solutions with InnScreen F10 blackface for SIGN YOU mediascreen.

On Essener Straße in Oberhausen, the Wuppertal-based company Innlights Displaysolutions has renewed one of its older LED installations after many years of use on behalf of the media owner. In the process, the advertising space in the best location on CentrO was doubled. The replacement was completed in just five days, including dismantling, conversion of the steel substructure and installation of 66 InnScreen F10 blackface LED panels.

The structural measures on site were carried out completely by the interdisciplinary team of Innlights. Kolja Birkenbach from Innlights adds: “In addition to the installation work, we also designed the steel support during the planning phase. It is precisely matched to the dimensions and weight of the InnScreen F10 outdoor panel with its lightweight aluminum construction. The image technology weighs only 2 tons in total with a display size of 10.5 meters wide and 5.8 meters high.

The display is weatherproof specified as IP65 and designed for front service. The brilliant image of the blackface display is based on the redundantly designed “Jointec-SMD”. The InnScreen F10 LED panel achieves 4,000 cd/qm brightness with extremely high contrast-levels. Kolja Birkenbach adds: “With panels from our F series, we have previously commissioned a large LED display with InnScreen F8 modules for SIGN YOU here at CentrO in Oberhausen. Since then, this has proven its cost-effectiveness, in 24/7 operation all year round with its energy-saving technology and high UV resistance”.

Successful BOE participation for Innlights

Video Cube and Innlights RCA Remote Control App at „Wow Wuppertal”. Innlights Displaysolutions was exhibiting at booth C24 in hall 7 at this year’s Best of Events in Dortmund. The joint stand was planned and organized by FAIR EVENTS 10.0 for the marketing cooperation „Wow Wuppertal”. Innlights, also from Wuppertal, supplied the InnScreen C2 LED displays including the Innlights Remote Control App for the feeds of the four pages on the high-resolution video cube. Hartmut Vogel, Managing Director of FAIR EVENTS 10.0, commented: „The Innlights RCA fitted perfectly into our trade fair concept. Each partner on the stand was able to individually and interactively integrate their desired content without any technical assistance, either by mobile phone or tablet.” Innlights’ LED technology not only demonstrated the performance of its latest version of the Remote Control App, but also the prove the outstanding image quality of InnScreen C2. Thomas Klem, Innlights Managing Director, said: „C2 is a high-end indoor LED product with a small pixel pitch of just 2.84mm, working with Innlights’ new 2D and 3D processing. As a single batch, Innlights has a storage volume of 500 square meters of C2.”

InnScreen S2 enables Visual Digitization at Stadionwelt

As part of a second cooperation, Innlights Displaysolutions presented another very up-to-date and high-resolution LED panel with InnScreen S2 at the Stadionwelt stand in Hall 5, Booth B20. The advantages of the LED panel with its „Direct Wall Mounting” specification made it easy for visitors to convince themselves at the Stadionwelt stand. The InnScreen S-Series is mounted directly on the wall without the need for a rear triangle, with a thickness of only 42 mm. It is suitable for fixed installations, e.g. retail digital signage applications. Stadionwelt was also very satisfied. „For the first time we used a digitally feeded LED display here at BOE. We are happy about the great picture brilliance, the flexible playback of the pictures and the diverse forms of presentation”, says Carsten Ponsar from Stadionwelt. Media control systems such as the Innlights RCA are being used more and more frequently at trade fairs, because they are recorded and controlled with content in a user-friendly and cost-efficient manner via mobile phone or tablet. Thomas Klem summarizes: „More and more customers are convinced of the advantages of digital information and content, while being easy to use. This leads to an increasing spread of visual digitization in all areas of application.”

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.

12 LED pylons show the way in Centro Oberhausen

Innlights Displaysolutions is a leading provider of high-quality LED displays and LED system solutions. With the self-developed InnVision video controllers (SCL and SCXL) and the Innlights Remote Control App (Innlights RCA), the company from Wuppertal has established powerful hardware components and user-friendly control software for LED displays of all sizes. In addition, Innlights designs and develops customized solutions and recently implemented and commissioned a new LED parking guidance system for Centro Oberhausen. After two months of successful test operation, the twelve pylons with the LED display boards have been in use since July. The grafic representation is based on location-dependent text, remaining parking space and arrow matrix representation. While the text LED displays have a pixel pitch of 10 mm, the striking directional arrows of the guidance system are displayed using LED modules with a pixel pitch of 16 mm. The maximum brightness of the LED modules is 5,500 cd/sqm. For use in public spaces, each pylon is equipped with its own sensor, so that a sufficiently bright, but glare-free brightness is guaranteed at all times. The parking guidance system is EMC-certified and all relevant values ​​are well below the applicable limit values. In addition, each pylon is connected via LTE for control. An essential part of the project is the software connection to the CUR” car park management software. For this purpose, the LED controllers were integrated on site using interface programming. Each pylon has its own IP address, which is also used for remote maintenance from the service desk. Any messages from the system are transmitted via a web-based service. In addition, all parameters of the pylons can be checked at any time from the service desk via the cloud service. Markus Remark, the managing director of Centro Oberhausen, is very satisfied with the new LED parking guidance system: We are very pleased that the approach to a free parking space is now very clear and easy. Our visitors and customers can find their parking space quickly and easily at any time.” 

The Beach in the central of Wuppertal

Innlights “Kitchen Beach” equipped with InnScreen R3 from Innlights.

We deliver that holiday feeling in the heart of Wuppertal! We launched Kitchen Beach so that our guests can chill out in the best beach atmosphere. What would be more appropriate than the sight of the sea from the beach lounger with sand under your feet? ”Paolo Frisella, owner of the Kitchen Klub, is enthusiastic about the success of his summer idea in the middle of Wuppertal-Elberfeld between CinemaxX and Schauspielhaus. And the beach concept with LED picture background was also very well received by “wuppertalaktiv!”, the location marketing association for Wuppertal. And so the “Business Breakfast” took place on August 25th in the popular beach location. In view of the large amount of space available on around 2,000 square meters, all current pandemic requirements can be met without any problems. And so the visitors enjoy the beach with a view. And it has it all: At 16 meters, the ocean surf can be seen in the highest quality with 4,096 px in width as a panorama image. Innlights InnScreen R3 with its fine pixel pitch of 3.9 mm makes this possible. Kolja Birkenbach from Innlights Displaysolutions lists the advantages of the installed LED technology: “The outdoor LED panorama is of course weatherproof and robust, high-resolution and with 4,000 cd/sqm capable of unlimited daylight. The viewing angle is very large at 140° vertically, resulting in a homogeneous panorama image for the viewer. InnScreen R3 is also very energy-efficient in operation. Our own video processing with InnVision SCL is also used for this project. ” The LED panorama is displayed in a particularly user-friendly manner via the Innlights Remote Control App (RCA). The customer can intuitively prepare, control and change the video content himself from his mobile phone via Innlights RCA. A special highlight of the Wuppertal beach project is the connection of the Innlights RCA to local weather data and time, so that the sea view always matches the actual weather mood. The guests can see the last rays of sunshine at Kitchen Beach and at the same time experience the atmospheric sunset by the sea. For the event from wuppertalaktiv! of course, it wasn’t the sea, but the Wuppertal suspension railway rushing through the panorama picture. Thanks to Innlights RCA, the pre-produced image content could be easily adapted for the event. Now, in September, summer is drawing to a close. But Paolo Frisella is already working on other eye-catching concepts for Kitchen Beach and Kitchen Club and can be sure that Innlights can support him with the right LED technology. 

InnScreen A1 for TV-Studio

LED-highlight with three video backdrops in highest resolution. LED displays in TV studios must meet the highest requirements to ensure that the image quality in the camera signal is flawless. These include high image resolution, balanced color reproduction, coordinated image contrast, and a large, homogeneous viewing angle of the LED displays. The fact that InnScreen A 1.2 is an outstanding LED product for this area of application was recently demonstrated during the installation in the Düsseldorf Rheinstudios, which was planned and implemented by Innlights Displaysolutions. The task was to integrate three eight-square-meter UHD-resolution LED displays into the design of the studio backdrop. In addition to the best possible image properties, the focus was particularly on the structural design, since areas of the studio used directly behind the backdrop adjoin and a wired LED backdrop was out of the question in studio operation. All the required specifications were easily covered by InnScreen A 1.2. Thanks to the pixel pitch of just 1.25 mm, the three displays present in UHD resolution. The homogeneous overall image is ensured by the particularly dimensionally accurate LED panels, the exact technical installation, and the precise calibration. All LED panels are connected to each other with plug connections without cables and thus offer a perfect rear view. The LED technology is controlled by Novastar’s 4k LED controller R5, with a refresh rate of 3,840 Hz. This ensures the best possible video display for the studio cameras. With InnScreen A 1.2, the Rheinstudios now have a high-quality and operationally reliable LED display technology in permanent studio and broadcast operation, which fits perfectly into the studio design.
