Denmark: One of Europe's leading handball clubs, Viborg HK from Denmark, has installed four flying screens to intensify the atmosphere and expand their advertising facilities.
If it used to be difficult to play Viborg HK at their home arena, it will be even harder in the future. The women's team, who won the European EHF-Cup in 94 and went all the way to the Champions League final in 1997 is known for its enthusiastic home crowd. Recently the club management decided to install four large screens in the 2,200-seat arena to intensify the seething atmosphere even further.
The four 120" dnp Wide Angle Screens, which are installed as flying displays, will be used to show player profiles, replays of goals and to display highlights from the game during breaks and pauses. The large displays also have a commercial purpose as media for sponsor advertising: an important aspect for this professional club, who registered on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange in 1999.
The flying display concept was planned and installed by Danish rear projection specialists, FMJ AV Indretning & Teknik. Managing Director of FMJ Peter Moeller-Johansen comments:
- Just a couple of years back, the screens and the projectors had to be installed in a dark cabinet - typically a four-screen cube mounted in the ceiling. But with the increasingly brighter projectors and the new generation of high-contrast screens it has become possible to use flying screens, says Peter Møller-Johansen.
