JVR builds giant video screen with 13 million LEDs
A record-breaking LED display containing almost 13 million LEDs was built by JVR for a series of concerts just before Christmas.
With three sell-out 28,000 capacity shows over the Christmas period, the single location and spectacular venue allowed a level of production and theatrics which would be all but impossible on a touring show.
Constructed from 2,496 Dlite 7 tiles, the screen measured 44m wide by 12m high. With an overall resolution of 3072 x 832, and a pixel count of 2.6 million, the display had a total of 12.8 million LEDs (or five LEDs per pixel).
JVR's sales director Jeroen Jongenelen commented: "The Barco D7 is the only system that offered the resolution required and was available in sufficient quantities to enable us to pull off a project of this scale. Even so, we ended up bringing in equipment from numerous suppliers, some within our group."
