LED Screen Division – Have you noticed that every where we look today, there is every likely-hood you are looking at a digital screen, big or small. The role of outdoor digital displays is a recent trend that started with the cinema screens, moved onto TV sets and since then the diversity, has gone ballistic and installed in every country on the planet.
Bring your aquatic venue alive with the big screen experience.
Never before has society become so addicted, influenced and connected to digital displays. Whether it is watching a movie on your phone whilst you travel on the bus, reading a novel on a kindle or watching a football replay on a stadium screen, the range of technologies currently available provides options, alternatives and opportunities.
One area that ICE AV is increasingly being asked to help with is the public swimming pool. Aquatic Centres today are places to learn, have fun, experience family time and have become community centres. The facilities typically being included today include creche, cafe, club facilities, class rooms, toddler pools, dive pools, training rooms, exercise rooms and now the latest trends many acquatic pool owners are implementing are large format digital LED screens.
Many Aquatic Centre managers have realised to ensure continued patronage and ensure their facilities are seen to be exciting places to be, they are looking to the big screen experience to give them that edge for their digitally connected visitors.
Large format screens have become a standard feature in public environments and many are familiar with the large outdoor LED screens in Tokyo, Time Square, Picadilly Square and of course many roadside and stadium locations around the world.
Hinged LED screen
So what are Aquatic Centres wanting to use large format LED screens for. The obivous use is sports timing for race meetings, however the entertainment value is what Aquatic managers are thinking off to increase the experience.
Applications such as movies, roving pool camera, messages and advertising enhance the visit of all the swimmers. Furthermore with the growth and influence of Social Media the large format LED screens becomes and ideal way for a venue’s community to engage and merges the on-line / off-line local presence as a seamless bi-directional communication channel. One local semi outdoor pool complex that has used a large format movie screen in the Auckland region has been the Waiweria Hotpools, though it has suffered from quality and visibility issues due to not using LED screens. Nevertheless this experience has allowed swimmers who like to lounge in the hot soak pools to watch a movie as part of their visitor experience.
ICE AV Technology has introduced its Plas480-10 Industrial grade LED cabinets as an ideal solution for pool side large format digital screens. The screens can be configured to any size according to budget, viewing distance and resolution required and being manufactured from industrial grade plastic will not rust or detoriate in these humid environments. To minimise egress of moisture internally the screen cabinents can be sealed, thereby minimsing future problems such as internal corrosion.
The Plas480 can be installed in a variety of manners. Pictured here is where the cabinets have been assembled onto a swing up frame that can be wall mounted. In addition a screen could be floor mounted on a moveable platform allowing relocating and changing viewing angles depending on activities.
International sports events such as the Rugby World Cup, Formula One GP and of course the Olympics have shown that large format LED screens add greatly to the visibility and enjoyment of events. This familiarity by the public, is an underlying aspect that where ever people gather that there will be be a large format LED screen technology.
In recents years the R&D, quality and reliability has taken huge leaps and bounds meaning the cost has now become alot more affordable. ICE AV recommends that a 1.92m x 1.92m screen as a minimum size to consider installing into an Aquatic Centre to achieve a sufficient display area. The LED screen size can be increased in 480mm steps in vertical and horizontal dimensions.
The PLas480-10 is a 10mm pitch resolution screen and is an excellent starting point for Aquatic Centres to consider. If budget constraints are a factor according to desired screen size then 15mm and 20mm options are available. Alternatively if venues desire the high definition experience we recommend considering the Plas480-5, a 5mm high defiintion option.
One of the unique features of the Plas480 range is the high Horizontal scanning refresh rate making it suitable for TV cameras for event broadcasts. Low refresh rates typically mean viewer screen flicker when television cameras have the screens in their field.
For the luxury complex and hotel often what has been missing in recent years is the visual aspect to entertain and pamper guests as the swim and take in a pool poolside.
