Once a year the fanatic video-gamers come together at the world's largest event for computer and video games, the Gamescom in Cologne. Over a 345 000 visitors were pleased at the newest hardware, hundreds of premieres and blockbuster titles, from consoles and PCs through to online mobile games.
PRG Belgium supplied three LED screens, as well as lighting, trussing, hoists and control systems, for the Wargaming booth.
The first highlight was the large LED ROE 7mm screen, which was of 16m x 4.2m and mounted on the upper floor of the building. It was divided into two overlapping parts, for which PRG developed a custom-made frame support and a particular image management was employed, constituted of 1 D3 Media server 4x4 Pro (VCF Quad DVI card included) 5 and 1 Barco E2 Event master (4K Video System).
The second LED screen was a Utile 3,9mm wall and measured 7m x 4m. This LED wall was mounted on Kinesys hoists to have it moving up and down within the stage area.
The third video screen was a ROE 7mm wall of 7m x 4m and located just outside the Show area.
In addition to the fact that the screen within the stage area featuring images from the PlayStations, tablets and PCs, the three LED walls could either display separate video content or be synched on the same.
PRG also installed 8 Panasonic HD cameras that captured images on the booth and broadcasted on the LED screens.
The video and sound were also broadcasted onto the B-to-B stand that was approximately 500m away.
In terms of lighting, trussing, hoists and control, PRG also put together an impressive show using 60 ICON Beams, 60 X4 L Impression, 36 P5 and 14 Robin 1200. For the overall sound we had two Adamson S10 stacks + 2 Subs LS 219 EML E + 6 MICS.
This year, once again, we are looking back at the great success of the Gamescom and hope to be back next year for the next impressive show!
