Covering the center-hung gondola at Indiana Pacers in LED
The designers requested a solution that not only curved each of the 4 main faces of the gondola but also leant them outwards at a 3 degree bank – all designed to improve the crowd’s screen-view experience.
Curved screens ? Easy ! Leaning screens ? No problem. Challenge number 3 for digiLED though was to ensure that, at the edges, where neighbouring faces of screen met, the maximum amount of corner zone was filled with video-pushing LED surface. This required the design of custom wedge-shaped corner PCBs that became custom corner LED tiles which created the full zone fill of video surface on each and every corner.
The Gondola design was 80% complete but what about the last bit ?
Lets put LED INSIDE the Gondola the designers said.
No problem digiLED said.
As you see in the photo, the interior volume of the Gondola was also counter-lined with LED video surface, working in harmony with the geometry of the outer.
“If there is one seat in the house that cannot get a full and immersive screen-feed” said Tom Mudd (me) “I’d be amazed… This is an arena LED solution BUILT for the crowd.”
