On August 24th, around around 35,000 spectators were able to get a taste of opera air at nine locations in Schleswig-Holstein – Giuseppe Verdi's masterpiece AIDA was broadcasted live on large, mobile LED screens at the premiere of the Kiel Summer Opera. Under the motto "Culture for everyone – free of charge and outdoors", the event was a complete success again this year! A varied special programme including an open-air cinema and live music was held in many different locations in addition to the AIDA production.
In order to make this open-air broadcast possible in Kiel and the other cities in Schlewswig-Holstein simultaneously, nine mobile LED screens were set up by PRG. Seven of them of a size of 15m² and two of 27m². The containers with the LED screens were partially separated from the truck and placed on the ground – the advantage: the walls can be placed almost anywhere and can also be adjusted in height and rotated. This means the best view of the playing surfaces for the audience and, of course, perfect image quality due to the high-resolution screens.
PRG has an extensive fleet of LED trucks with screens in different sizes between 15 and 80 square meters. Whether a sports event, concert, city festival or even an open-air opera premiere, the systems can be implemented for a wide variety of events. The LED trucks and trailers are self-sufficient and are therefore fast to set up, flexible and save a lot of space. Due to the short set-up and dismantling times, they also represent a cost-effective alternative to permanently installed equipment. PRG also offers modular systems that can be assembled as required. Our PRG experts are happy to advise customers and show them the most diverse variants for their planned event, no matter how demanding or unusual the customer's wishes may be. Jan Sören Eckert, Fleet Manager Mobile LED Screens, remembers an extraordinary order with a smile: "We once had to set up an LED screen on a floating pontoon, for which a crane was needed. That worked, too. We just need to know in advance, then we can order a crane."
We would like to thank Opus for the pleasant cooperation!
