Aquatic Centre LED Screen Catalogue and Guide is published for Aquatic Managers

LED Screen Division: Aquatic Centre LED Screen Catalogue and Guide is published to enable Aquatic Venue managers to gain an understanding of the various screen hardware options and some of the aspects to consider when selecting a screen.

ICE AV Technology’s LED Division understands that managers need help to come to grips with LED technology without being swamped with models and geeky hardware speak.

Today’s swimming pool complex is a far cry to when I attended the local swimming pool as a youngster. Unheated part from the sun, timber uncovered audience seating, small in size, timber outdoor changing rooms, two level dive boards, snack shop and all enclosed by a corrugated tall fence. Today we have progressed with stunning facilities with multi lane sports pool, dive pool, a leisure pool with waves and sprays, a tots’ pool and a learners’ pool. And it does not stop there with a water slide, wave pools, dive pools, therapy services and rehabilitation pools, massage facilities, spa pool, steam room and a cafe — all indoors and with off-street car parking.

Until recently only large and well financed aquatic facilities have installed large digital LED screens, though most facilities have a timing clock, or a score board for race meetings. The roll out of LED screens were initially used as digit screens displaying race times however a new trend is developing with the use of the LED Matrix as an entertainment and advertising digital display within the aquatic venue.

Aquatic Centers are dynamic destinations where people meet, have fun, compete and enjoy the magic of water based activities. The community swimming pool complex is an important centre for many smaller town and cities and can play an important role in cohesiveness of a community just like the theatre and sports area.

LED screens from ICE AV are perfect for ultra humongous wide TV sets.

LED technology is really coming into its own in the last year. Whether it is lighting up your LCD TV powered with a LED backlight, your room lighting, street lamps, vehicle lights and those tiny chips that emit stunning bright light can even be found now powering projectors.

Here at ICE AV our LED division works with LEDs in many ways. By using LEDs creatively we can use them to build the largest screens in the world, to creating amazing columns of audio sensitive light as in the new performance lights we are developing for the music and event industry. In the USA incandescent lamps are being banned from 2014. In NZ the Government has not gone as far, but what surprises me on that account there has been little promotion in NZ of a lighting technology that will last 20,000 plus hours and even up to 100,000 hours before it gets to 50% factory new brightness. Thats almost like lasting a life time when you think about it.

NZ's widest WIDE Screen TV

LED technology though starts to get really cool when it is used in LED digital screens. This screen pictured above was housed in Telecom NZ’s new HQ in Auckland up till recent;y and is now being relocated out at the Auckland international airport in time to welcome the many 1,000’s of Rugby World Cup visitors. The P6mm Pitch is almost as good as its gets, and be improved by even higher resolution by going to 4mm Pitch. However it also doubles the price!

ICE AV is able to supply for example screens similar to this size and larger measuring 20m x 4.6m ranging in price suitable for various budgets. The variation is all due to the quality and specifications that include everything from the cabinet construction, material, LED SMD manufacturer, LED type and scanning frequency.

The following installation set a milestone in New Zealand by being the second permanent digital LED billboard installed outdoors for advertising and general communication. The installation is actually being split over to sections and the second half will be installed in 2011. The first section measures 2.88m x 1.60m tall.

Installed ICE AV LED Screen

Mounted and waiting for the passing traffic

Installing an LED screen requires a alot more than just unpacking out of the box and standing it on the table. Prior to manufacturing alot of planning is required both on and off site. This typically involves permission from some authority like a City Council or traffic authority, liasing with electricians, network personnel, content providers, engineering company and architects. If the home work is done correctly and everyone is on the same page then it can come together like clock work. In this installation it came together very well, to the point it was featured in the morning newspaper BEFORE it had been installed and before the newspaper had been delivered to subscribers in time for their breakfast reading …. hows that for confidence. Pictured is ICE AV’s team member Leighton holding up the newspaper in the early hours of the morning proudly showing off the installation article. The screen was installed well before the morning traffic started to arrive, signaling another successful project.
