Cappadocia is a high plateau in Central Turkey at an altitude of 3270 ft / 1000 m. It lies in a triangle formed by the three main towns of Kayseri, Nevsehir and Nigde.

The history of Cappadocia begins 60 million years ago with the eruption of 2 volcanos, covering the area with lava and tufa. In later periods rain and wind eroded the land and created unusual valleys, canyons and cones.

For many centuries Hittites, Assyrian Colonies, Greeks and Romans lived in the region. Cappadocia is also a very important region in early Christian History.

There are over 600 hundred rock-cut churches built by monks and hermits between the 4th and 11th centuries. In some of these, church walls have been decorated with wonderful frescoes depicting scenes from the Bible.

ICE LED STS Timer screens will help 900 of the dirtiest and mud covered racers time themselves.

ICE LED is supporting a local Auckland fun race event in support of raising funds for prostrate cancer. We are supplying a STS LED screen that will display three clocks at a time with multiple clocks running for the many heats.

STST Sports Timing Screen

The Mud Race Rush 2.5km obstacle course has a number of messy surprises where racers have to crawl, slide and make their way over tyres, walls and foam. along the way. Crawling in mud pits, slipping and sliding down foamy water slides, climbing over walls and tyre mountains, splashing through a murky creek and of course getting covered in lots and lots of mud is the challenge as you head for the finish line.

ICE LED Timing Screen

Though the event is to raise funds for prostrate cancer research, it will allow over 900 children to challenge themselves, possibly move them out of their comfort zone and discover the real world away from computers and gaming consoles, as they get filthy and dirty this weekend at Long Bay Primary School on Sunday.

The STS LED Screens is a modular multi-purpose universal outdoor / indoor screen that can be used for a wide range of purposes and virtually any sport and function. The software options cater for many applications including an innovative programming utilising our own database focused display solution.

The STS Sports Screens are just one of the solutions ICE AV has developed and making available to clients and partners world wide.

FIA European Turkey F3J 2013 international competitions rely on LED Timer and Display Screens from ICE LED, New Zealand

ICE AV, LED Division, New Zealand is proud to announce that they are the official suppliers of three 1440mm x 960mm Time Display clocks for the FIA European Turkey F3J 2013 international competitions. The F3J starts 11 July and is being held in the small rural Turkish town of Müsellim in the Köyü Sarayey district where teams from 17 European countries including the USA will compete.

Long before he was aware of international model plane championships, let alone F3J, ICE AV Founder Kevin Andreassend had his introduction to model aero plane flying during the 60’s. “My father took the combustion engine powered model Cessna plane he built out for a decent flight one day in the 60’s. I recall my brothers and I were all anticipating the début flight with excitement, albeit a bit nervous with the fast spinning propeller a few fingers away.

Model Plane Timaru_02

“It flew until it ran out of petrol and ended a long distance away and there was some difficulty finding the plane on the far side of the airstrip in the long grass”. Many years later after this photo was taken in Timaru at the old airfield, ICE AV is pleased to know we are helping the aero modelling sport at an international level with being the supplier of the official 2013 F3J Sports Timing Clock displays.

Shortly after arrival in Istanbul the first LED screen is unpacked and set up in the hangar for the Istanbul Model Aero Club

Once all the screens arrived in Istanbul in mid June the screens were fitted to the locally designed and manufactured mounting frames in the engineering workshop. Once everything was cabled up and the local computer set up, we logged in from Auckland remotely to control the computer desktop and configured the settings. By using a remote live camera view we were able to see the adjustment and confirm correct operation. This capability gives customers who in many cases have never used LED screens before, or if they have do not have a understanding of the operational software reassurance that ICE does not just supply hardware but can assist clients remotely, saving additional costs of having to fly a technician to site.

The Plas480 cabinets are particularly suited to the F3J event and similar competitions, due to the light weight cabinet, waterproof, daytime brightness modular, easy to assemble on site irrespective of the size and the ability to reconfigure the layout.

Each screen utilises 6 Plas480 panels in a 3 x 2 arrangement. The three Plas480 timer screens are configured as 1440mm x 960mm, 10mm resolution, full colour in a custom client built stand. The screens all display exactly the same time count down with a loop in/out configuration over a combination of Cat5 and fibre optics cable. The top section will display the count down clock and the remainder of the screen will display sponsor logos.

We work with companies and clients to configure their final solution and mounting and to do this the Plas480 can be supplied as a quantity of panels for integration at the destination, or with hanging mount fittings, or our free standing display stand as pictured below.

LED Clock timer screens

Model 301TL is ideal for up to 6 digits height at 480mm high. Or 4 digits with a sponsor or an event / sponsor logo. The area beneath the frame is ideal for a printed sponsor banner and easily fitted to the stand.

Plas480 cabinets is a modular LED standalone LED panel available in mono, RGB, various pitch in a standard uniform industrial plastic housing. This allows the screen panels to be used in any scenario from billboards, digital signage or timing screens on unlimited size The three screens are being used to display the 10 minute count down time which dictates the flight start time and by 00:00 (minutes / seconds) the model glider plane must have been landed. Two screens will be placed back to back and the 3rd will be connected via fibre optics 160 metre away at the other end of the flight area.

In designing the Plas480 clock timer solution we wanted customers to be able to have a building block clock system that enables them to split the screen into separate smaller screens or to aggregate them to a larger size. Many other systems on the market lock you into their fixed sizes, colours and pitch whereas we wanted to deliver a fully flexible modular system. The software driving it can act as 12/24hr clock, Count Up, Count Down, Snap Time, display down to 1/100ths of seconds if required, full colour customisation, able to interface with external triggers and automatically integrate with Excel to record times.

The P10 RGB model is a 10mm pitch based on RGB DIP and rated at 5,000 NITS brightness per square metre. The mounting has been achieved by a modular universal system that allows each screen consisting of six panels are easily mounted. The displays are designed for unlimited use outdoors. Any clock screen can be aggregated together to make a larger size without cost penalty or restriction and in addition can be easily used for digital signs, displaying messages, photos or video in full colour.

Further information on the Plas480 based timer clocks can be viewed on this video.

The timing software is an accurate highly configurable Windows OS software clock that is able to be scaled to any size and configuration screen or Pitch resolution. The timing software is further enhanced as it can interface with Excel for database recording and media files to sound horns and the like.

In addition we have supplied a Hang-Roll-Fold flexible led screen to display announcements, information and video replay. The P18.25mm Hang-Roll-Fold LED screen in use is mounted from one of the stacked shipping containers for all participants to view. This 5250mm x 2260mm screen will be used to display messages, photos, videos in the latter part of each day and during the evening. This display will be able to accept a wide range of signal formats via the LED Switcher Processor. This will allow prepared content to be display at a button press or even walk up participants could have their content easily displayed.

The Rear View of the 5.2x2.6m screen shows the simple connection of the panel cables. The screen content signal can be delivered over 300m on Cat6 or 1000's metre over fibre.

The HRF Flexible LED screen is a revolution in LED screens as it allows the large 1725mm x 2260mm panels to be rolled and folded for storage. The installation is very straightforward as the screen just needs to hang from a pipe and rear latches joined.

Participants in F3J aero flying perfect their flight control skills over many years. After a glider plane is launched then the ground based pilot via radio controllers use the wireless control unit
to manipulate the plane. They face real challenges when the plane flies beyond eye control distance and yet still within radio control to bring it back to the required landing area within the allocated time period.

The commercial arrangement was made in conjunction with who are the largest commercial group of companies in Turkey and sponsor of the 2013 F3J competition.

ICE LED plays principal digital display role in Turkey’s major Transanatolia Rally Raid across remote Turkish regions in September 2013

ICE LED Division: We are pleased to announce our modular universal Hang-Roll-Fold Flexible LED screens have been selected for the international Transanatolia Rally Raid motor sports event held throughout the rugged Turkish country side. The event pits man and machine against each other and the rigours of rallying in rugged, breath taking beauty and dangerous regions of Turkey.

Pictured is the ICE flexible 18.25mm Pitch LED screen in an Istanbul workshop being prepared for use in the remote Turkish country side over the last few days. All the calibration was done remotely in real time from our offices in Auckland, New Zealand this week.

The 7 day rally (31 August – 7 September 2013) is a fast moving mobile event that had a key requirement for any digital display solution. It had to be sufficiently large, easily and quickly packed away each day, good quality viewing, rugged, simple to hang off the side of one of the travelling support trucks. The ICE Hang-Roll-Fold Flexible LED screens fitted the requirements perfectly meeting the budget requirements. The particular custom manufactured model was created in 3 separate sections which meant two people could easily mount the screen one section at a time and then clip the sections together.

The 5.25 x 2.62m fold up soft LED screen will display videos and information during the evening when the participants all arrive in for the night at the base camp each day, to re-group, attend to repairs, enjoy international friendship and share stories, including the big whoppers of exaggeration around the camp fire before retiring for another heady day of rallying in some very historic country side.

ICE Flexible LED screen

Rally raids are probably the most gruelling form of motor sport, tougher even than the 24 Hour race at Le Mans. The demand on vehicles, support equipment and drivers was pressed home during the 2012 3rd stage of the Transanatolia Rally in Turkey when a horrible crash fatally injured 2 competitors.The iconic 18 year old Turkish rider Kemal Merkit and Italian rider Mirco Miotto were parked up on the road looking at their guide maps book to find the right track, when suddenly at a roaring speed the Dutch rider Wouter Vaarkamp arrived crashing into Kemal and Mirco. Meanwhile Mirco suffered some little injuries, Kemal and Wouter unfortunately were fatally injured.

ISE 2013 Promotion for the ICE Flexible LED Fold Up Curtain Screen – LIMITED TIME PROMOTION


In the lead up to ISE 2013 in Amsterdam we celebrate this important trade show with our promotion of the

Hang-Roll-Fold Flexible LED screen. 

Why Flexible?
The unique design means that panels are easy to transport and install. Unlike many LED screen models the advantage is that you can hang it from an overhead pipe just like hanging a thick curtain. The less weight means they are safer to install, cheaper to rig and allow small wedding DJs or major acts to benefit.

Who should buy an ICE Hang-Roll-Fold?

The Flexible LED Screen is perfect for music bands, night clubs, karaoke clubs, large foyers, temporary advertising signs, stage back drop, expos etc. It has the remarkable feature that you can roll it up put into the rear of the van and drove off to your next gig

The screen is very much like a floor mat in regards to weight and handling.

Why use a ICE Flexible Curtain Screen

One reason stands head and shoulders above all others….
EASE OF transportation, handling and installation. Many of the LED screens you might have seen before required manpower and forklifts to install. Then 5 hours later the fork lifts roll back in.  Forget that back breaking task, With a ICE Flexible Roll – Fold – Hang LED screen the panels are unrolled and connected to a over head bar and lifted into place.

ICE AV’s LED Division is gaining a world wide reputation for offering innovative products and also solutions for unusual and common place applications where thinking outside the square is required.

The promotion we have until 25 January (NZ Time)  is for the 20mm Pitch size, 2330 NIT brightness screen. You can order any size you desire with the minimum being 1920mm x  960mm panels.

Flexible LED curtain

The unique LED screen that you can roll up and fold. Ideal for commercial and industrial applications.

The ICE Flexible LED screen known as the Hang-Roll-Fold is a revolutionary concept in large screen digital format display technology. In this video we talk about the connectivity and give you a close up view of a 960mm x 1920mm panel.

As the ICE Flexible LED curtain screens are flexible and can be folded and rolled they are easily transported, do not require a truck and simply hung from lighting bars, irrespective of the screen size. The ICE Flexible LED can be manufactured in custom sizes and have the increased flexibility of being able to be joined together if specified at the time of manufacture. The screens can even be walked on rolled, folded whilst being operated, however it is not designed for this purpose.

Towards the end of the video above we demonstrate how multiple screens can be connected to make one single larger screen displaying either one single image of multiple images. The Flexible LED screens range from 18.5mm Pitch to 100mm pitch. This video displays the 20mm Pitch minimum size panel and is suited for video from camera feeds, television, DVD and other sources. Sources can either be a standalone computer or alternatively multiple AV sources are displayed via the Screen input switcher processor.

Flexible LED Curtain

The screens can be used in environments including outdoors with low light levels and of of course in doors. The screens performance enables many new exciting applications where projection is not practical.

The applications are numerous including public venue events, digital signage temporary set up, concerts, sports and entertainment, club parties, movie evenings. The warranty period is 12 months.  End users are able to replace any faulty LEDs if they are handy with a soldering iron.

The scoreboard software is easily scaled to the LED screen pixel size right on the desk top, or can be used in full desktop mode if it is scaled via an LED switcher. The optional secondary screen for many of the score boards means that the LED screen output and admin screen can co-exist on the same LCD desktop screen.

Whether your score board is used for competitions at national, regional, school club or venue level we can supply a comprehensive solution.

For those who can use projection our unique Digital Daytime Lens Concave screens allows high quality images using low cost projectors in very high ambient light level environments as the screens can enhance a projector brightness by up to 2,000% when compared to using a Matt White Screen. This allows dramatic savings compared to our LED screen solutions however projection is not suited for outdoor sunlight.

In addition our FastFold projection systems can be desirable in controlled environments, as even a large 3x2m system collapses down into a tiny footprint. For those who wish to make their own rear projection score board our range of ICE projection polymers are an excellent choice.
