LED’s showtime: the next canoe championship can come
PROJECT · May 20th, 2021
Since its inauguration in 1935, Duisburg’s regatta course has enjoyed an international reputation among canoeists and rowers. The German national team trains here for the Olympic Games and international competitions, such as the most recent 2013 Canoe Racing World Championship, are held here. Therefore, the technical background for the transmission of such magnitudes is particularly important and require absolute dedication and detail work, which tennagels has completed with special commitment.
Broadcast in new LED quality
As is well known, the Regattabahn Duisburg is the competition course for canoeing and rowing. It is 2180 m long and 120 m wide and is located in the Duisburg Sports Park in the south of the Neudorf district of Duisburg. The sports park is considered the largest of its kind in Germany. In addition to the grandstand, which seats 2,292, there are also additional grandstands that are erected during major events. A total of 8,000 spectators can watch the regattas from the standing stands and the windbreak. Again and again, areas are redesigned as well as the infrastructure is worked on. For the broadcasting technology, tennagels has been commissioned by the city of Duisburg to install a new LED wall, based on the plans of hmpartner, the specialist planners for audiovisual technology.
Maybe it is not visible at first sight, but many steps have been taken to bring the visibility and the technology in the background to a successful conclusion. Compared to the previous model, the new LED wall is state of the art. As a result, the high energy efficiency is given as well as the transmission quality is improved. Thanks to the selection of SMD LED, the viewing angle for the spectators is very good and almost 180°. So the spectators can still follow the exciting sports events and benefit from the better LED quality. The LED wall itself is 12.48 m wide and 6.72 m high and has a pixel pitch of 10 mm.
tennagels develops LED future technology with great enthusiasm and special motivation. There, individual and creative work is just as important as dealing with standard solutions for LED screens indoor and outdoor. Our LED visions are suitable for large soccer stadiums, but also for smaller sports and event venues.
Our team of multidisciplinary talent develops, constructs and manages each project in a process-oriented and progressive manner. If our thinking excites you, it’s time for joint projects:
