Bigger than life QR Code on an ICE AV led screen

Bigger than life QR Codes on the ICE AV recently installed LED screen were tested to see the performance and recognition on a 10mm pitch screen.

LED Screen with QR code

QR codes are increasingly appearing on adverts, packaging and in magazines and now ICE AV has shown that they work equally well on LED screens. ICE AV has shown that they work well on all our screen solutions, from our multi touch screens and now our LED screens.

An important consideration users should take note of when using QR codes is that there should be a compelling reason to have a user scan a QR with their camera. If used on LED screens we suggest that they are used where people have dwell time, for example placing them on an LED billboard board alongside the road is probably not the most smartest of places.

The screen pictured is a 10mm pitch measuring 336cm x 192cm.

Versatile All Weather Plas480 LED cabinets perfect for Aquatic and Pool side screens

In the last 50 years ever since the TV set entered homes around the world there has been an explosion on where digital screens are used today. From TV screens in your pocket, in the car, shopping mall, sides of buildings and now in NZ towering above the Aquatic centre swimming pools.

What makes this possible is LED and for the large bill board size TV screens the Plas480 universal LED cabinets is an ideal solution for indoors and outdoors as an all weather screen solution from ICE AV.

Mounted high above the pools every swimmer and spectator can enjoy a stunning view.

Media and Screens are the dynamic partnership that are as much 21st century as TV dinners. We expect to be able to enjoy cinema films on the move, be kept informed by screens on the bus and now watch all types of information and films whilst we splash about in the swimming pool. Granted some people splash more than others and whether it is poolside in Las Vegas bathing under the sun or indoors in a Wave Pool in Invercargill the big screen experience next to the pool makes for a very compelling experience.

Watching movies was once the preserve of theatres where you sat in darkness for 90 minutes. Today you can sit in well lit venues, wearing a swimming costume, sun bathe, lounge about and catch all the action on the big screen.

ICE AV LED screens are all custom size based on standard modular LED components and this enables us to create screen size to fit the installation parameter and quality required. Typically we recommend a 10mm pitch is a good starting point and according to viewing distances, budget indoor or outdoor. With these variances we are able to create a solution to meet your exact requirements.

How to install an Aquatic LED Cinema Screen – Installation insight.

Are pool side LED screens the next trend in the ultimate must have for Aquatic venues, hotels and private residences? Going by the number of enquiries we receive from end users and resellers from many countries and the opportunities we see world wide, big screen installations change are an exciting new opportunity to inform, communicate and entertain.

The ease of installation and even remote calibration today makes LED screens a compelling reason to consider. The cost in recent years has dramatically reduced making them affordable.

In this video we provide a little insight to installing the Plas480 LED panels in a structural rotating frame. The LED panels can be mounted in a variety of ways according to installation environments and this is just one of many ways. In this case they are mounted in a steel manual rotating frame structure. This allows the screen to be viewed in a number of directions and for servicing removal from the rear. Each panel interior can be opened up from the rear in the unlikely case of replacing a power supply.

One person can easily handle the Plas480 panels due to their light 6 kg weight which in turn with a partner on the opposite side of the screen inserting the bolts installation is a no stress affair. This makes the Plas480 panels perfect for the rental market as well as permanent installation.

For installations like in aquatic venues, water based theme parks, private swimming pools or resort swimming facilities, the Plas480 are an ideal choice due the the non corrosive characteristics of the industrial plastic moulded case enclosure. Impossible to rust!

Connecting the infrastructure to run a LED screen is straightforward with either the option of the computer or the optional switcher if you have numerous sources. Pictured below shows a typical setup ustilising both a computer and source switcher with a desktop monitor and LED screen preview monitor.

Aquatic Swimming Pool installation is a New Zealand first.

ICE AV Tech’s LED Division established a New Zealand first with this stunning new aquatic cinema LED screen installation. Large format LED Screens are making an increasing inroad to numerous sites for diverse uses. In this video we show you the relatively straight forward method to assemble a large LED screen using the ICE Plas480 industrial LED cabinets.

For many though unfamiliar with LED screens they are all a bit of a mystery as it is the only display technology that can be used to build digital screens ranging from 1sqm to 1,000’s of meters that can cover entire buildings, placed underwater or on the wall in a retail store.

Aquatic Pool LED Screen

Industrial Grade Waterproof Plas480 cabinet LED screen

The core building block of an LED Screen is the LED tile which in turn is mounted into the actual LED cabinet. It is the actually cabinet that the integrator installer will handle to fit into the mounting structure. In this video we show you the actual installation of building a 3.36m x 1.92m LED screen.



In the case of the ICE AV Plas480 cabinets measuring 480mm x 480mm they will typically mounted onto a steel frame structure. For expo and temporary use they can be hung from wire rope clamps. The aspect to consider is whether the screens can be accessed from the rear or from the front. This will dictate the type of bracket used, simple in style they have functionality for either front panel removal or rear access. Each panel is an independent unit that is interconnected to the adjacent panel in the row with external data and power connectors. An LED screen itself does not have the typical DVI, SDI, Composite or VGA type inputs, however it is capable of displaying all these and others. So is that contradiction? No not at all, as typically every LED screen has at least three other crucial component.
1 – Either a Computer or LED Source Switcher
2 – LED Data Processor – commonly called a Sending Card
3 – The Receiver Card Processor .

LED Screen Switcher

By using the switcher numerous external media sources can be displayed immediately on the LED screen.

For the Plas480 Panels they have the unique design of the Power / Controller box being able to control a number of Panels. So depending on the screen size you would install one or more units, whereas the common design has a receiver card installed inside each LED cabinet. In addition to the Plas480 ICE has a diverse range of LED screen models to cater for a wide range of installation requirements.

So delivering the signal or source into the LED screen is via the computer or the LED Source Switcher. Typically the Sending Card is installed in either one. So If you are using the LED Source Switcher we install the special LED data processor within the unit or if only using a computer to host all media and no switcher is used on the system, then we install the Sending Data Card processor internally on a PCI slot.

We recommend that the computer is able to be connected via the internet for remote support and maintenance. In addition installing one of our remote IP camera options allows us to monitor the screen performance and especially crucial during remote adjustment enabling us to stand virtually in front of the screen.
