Sited outside the main entrance of the exhibition hall, a total of 736 Lighthouse Technologies R16 16mm LED panels were divided into four individual screens, each measuring a massive 23 wide x 8 panels high (23.46m x 6.08m) and mounted on indivicual hydraulic tracking systems.The screens displayed images that reflected the three main themes of the show: Inspiration, Technology and Humanity. During the ceremony, the tracking system allowed the screens to move apart to reveal exhibits positioned behind them. This enabled over 1,000 invited VIPs to experience superb visual enjoyment and fully appreciate the impressive nature of such a magnificent opening ceremony.JM Rental is one of the few companies in the world capable of supplying LED screen on such a scale. “We are able to facilitate projects such as this through careful project management, investment and in-depth knowledge of both the market and the available products,” explains Mr. Yip. “Undoubtedly the excellent working relationship we have with our partners and customers, product reliability and the tremendous support we get from the screen manufacturer are instrumental in driving us along the road to success.”“At the beginning of last year, for example, we made a significant investment in Lighthouse Technologies LED screen, purchasing a large quantity of R4-S 4mm and R16 16mm panels, the latter being used at IDEX. This has enabled us to offer a one-stop, total visual solution that delivers true impact to our clients’ events, whatever they are and wherever they may be and is fully demonstrated by the completion such a flawless and marvelous show held in the Middle East.” About JM Rental Ltd.Established in 1997, JM Rental Ltd. is one of the largest LED display rental companies in Asia.
