MHB Create Digital Audience Platform with ROE Visual Diamond Screen
Leek, The Netherlands (26 May 2020) – Dutch-based rental company MHB has developed a digital audience platform for MediaLane, based on a curved LED display consisting of ROE Visual Diamond LED panels.
How do you make a satirical Saturday night show during an intelligent lockdown? A quiz with 100 people in the audience? Impossible. A musical ensemble? Unthinkable. With the help of the facilities provided by rental company MHB, broadcast station BNNVARA was able to pull it off and to continue the popular television program “Even Tot Hier” in a corona-proof adaptation.
When MHB was approached by MediaLane to find a solution to be able to continue the “Even Tot Hier” television series on Dutch national broadcast station BNNVARA, they set out to develop a digital audience platform, enabling live interaction between the studio and an audience of 100 persons.
Using lots of conference connections, the audience is able to participate and intervene live during the show, just like a normal live audience in the studio would be able to. The curved display, measuring a stunning 17x3 meters, makes the interaction up close and very natural.
Supported from a custom-made truss construction, neatly following the curve of the 17-meter long LED screen, a total of 204 modules of Diamond DM 2.6. were suspended, connected with hanging bars and the special connection locks. Using the Colorlight Z6 processor, mapping the panels proved to be easy. During the show, 100 simultaneous dial-up connections were shown, creating an immense interactive background.
Specialized in devising and performing audiovisual productions, and with a wealth of successful productions in its portfolio, MHB was able to deliver a solution for MediaLane that worked well for both the performers in the studio and the viewers at home.
“The ROE Visual Diamond screens provided a great digital canvas for this specific purpose” explains Marten Hylkema, owner of MHB, “The curving capabilities are remarkable, creating an enhanced immersive setting and vivid color display makes the screen really stand out. We have used this screen for several types of applications now and are really satisfied with both the visual quality and the ease of use. The Diamond screens have proven to be a really good investment for us”.
