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.
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”.
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.”
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.
User-friendly control for LED displays. At this year’s Best of Events in Dortmund, Innlights Displaysolutions presented a novel control for image and video programs on LED screens under the name Innlights Remote Control Application. The trade fair visitors were impressed by the easy handling and performance of the software solution at the joint booth of Innlights and the partners Saalbau GmbH from Frankfurt and Lleyendecker eventsolutions from Wuppertal on January 10th and 11th. Interactive and playful videos, pictures and a 360° VR presentation on a four-meter-wide curved LED display, InnScreen C3, and a LED floor application with InnScreen M5 Floor could be played. The different event locations of Saalbau were very lively and realistic. Marius Kuschmierz, technical director of Innlights comments: “We controlled all media, including the virtual reality application, with the help of our Remote Control App simply from a mobile phone. Innlights RCA works across platforms and is designed for mobile, tablet and laptop / PC.” Even the creation of program sequences or a timed playback with playlists can be handled without specific knowledge of it via RCA. The program playback is documented in the system so that, for example, billboard advertisements can be recorded and displayed. Short-term customization options or program changes through simple media integration ensure maximum flexibility. Innlights RCA is not limited to the use at trade fairs and events. The system is also ideally suited for fixed installations and enables automatic, daily updated or event-related feeds. Marius Kuschmierz summarizes: “The system is suitable wherever flexible use and operation without the use of technicians, without the use of complex video technology and without knowledge of pixel dimensions, scaling processes, or similar LED displays is needed.”

Angulations in 5° increments from 1° to 20° “convex curved” and 1° to 30° “concave curved” can be realized. Within a video wall plane and curved arrangements are freely combinable. With a large viewing angle of 140° vertically and horizontally, with a brightness of up to 1200 cd/m² and fast processing, InnScreen C3 offers high-quality images via black face LEDs. At the same time, the power consumption is very low with an average of 72 W per cabinet. InnScreen C3 is designed for rental use and very robustly manufactured on the basis of an aluminum CNC milled frame. The cabinets are equipped with a quick release system for tool-free installation. Marius Kuschmierz, CTO at Innlights, commented: “Our new cabinet is designed for the permanent assembly and dismantling at trade fairs and events. With its creative curving options, InnScreen C3 is an excellent addition to our rental portfolio. In addition, we are currently able to offer cross-rental investments for the quantitatively large product batch.”
InnScreen C-series with high resolution for trade fair applications. Innlights Displaysolutions is known as an LED display provider for rental and sales. The company has expanded its rental portfolio with new indoor products of the “C-series” especially for trade fair use. Next to InnScreen C3, there is another, even higher-resolution LED panel available.
With InnScreen C2, customers can now rent high-quality LED displays with a pixel pitch of 2.84 mm. The brightness of this new LED panel with 1,100 cd/m² enables brilliant pictures even under bright exhibition conditions. Both LED panels offer a large vertical and horizontal viewing angle of 140°, as well as high refresh rates in the control for flawless video playback even with fast movements. The InnScreen C3 offers curved applications with angles in 5° increments from 0° to 20° “convex curved” and 0° to 30° “concave curved”. For flat and curved screens, the C3 technology with many different variations fulfills the requirements of a wide variety of booth designs. Both InnScreen products, C2 and C3, are CNC-milled aluminum for precise construction and robust handling. Managing Director Thomas Klem concludes: “At the trade fair, the trend towards a small pixel pitch is unbroken. The LED panels of the C-series are excellently suited with their specifications. InnScreen C2 and C3 are now available, even in large contingents “.
