Supernova takes off at UK airport

UK: An impressive array of nearly 200 dnp screens at one of the UK’s leading airports – which included 84” dnp Supernova One Screens – has earned Paradigm Audio Visual Ltd the distinction September 2008 “installation of the month.”

Space constraints and high ambient lighting conditions made Supernova One the ideal choice for one of the check-in areas at Manchester Airport’s Terminal 3. Featuring active optical technology, award-winning Supernova Screens provide up to 10 times’ higher contrast than conventional front screens – with minimal space requirements and easy installation.

Pixel Inspiration installed the screens, which were supplied by Paradigm Audio Visual Ltd. “This is a logical solution when space is at a premium and the environment is bright,” says Paul Wood, Paradigm AV Managing Director. “It would have been virtually impossible to have achieved such a satisfactory solution without Supernova – the image would have been washed out entirely.”

‘The results are excellent’

The vibrant Supernova Screens enable airline operators to achieve a distinct, animated presence and provide passengers with key information – reducing paper-based communications and improving the passenger experience. Says Jackie Neville, Head of Product Development at Manchester Airport: “The results are excellent, and the scale and quality of airline content has created a new navigational tool, making the process of finding the check-in desks far simpler.”

“The City of Bologna wanted to create a spectacular visual effect to greet visitors at the entrance hall. And we decided that a flying screen installation with three dnp rear projection displays would match the futuristic interior design perfectly. It would also provide the best image quality in the bright room, which is bathed in daylight pouring in through the acrylic structure.”
