Thomas Mayr's solution was to use 185 of G-LEC's Phantom30 LED video frames, the largest installation of such frames ever seen in Austria. Two columns of the frames were built at opposite corners of the open plan stand, while the remaining frames were flown high above the two adjoining sides. The middle corner formed the catering area, and here the LED frames provided a strong visual division of the two different areas. Thomas explains: "Not only do the G LEC Phantom frames have a high impact value for visitors, they are also very light and easy to handle. I couldn't have delivered this design with any other LED frame system."
The system was provided by Eventamt, G LEC's rental partner in Austria. General manager Tom Wessely says: "The Phantom system is easy to handle, which makes it ideal for exhibitions, where the time for building and dismantling stands is limited. The frames displayed the Siemens' logo and other images, which we programmed onto the Pandoras Box media server after the rigging had been completed."
Vienna-Tec is a biennial exhibition, with the 2008 event recording 34,500 visitors from around the world.
