Greece: When the Doukas School in Athens invested in a brand new sports arena, the Greek AV consultants and rear projection specialists, Telmaco S.A, was commissioned to provide a suitable large screen display solution.
The benefits of rear projection become obvious in a brightly-lit sports arena. In Greece, a 140" dnp Giant Wide Angle Screen with 4,000 ANSI Lumen beat a 12,000 Lumen projector in a rear vs. front shoot-out.
- Optical rear projection screens use the projected light much more efficiently than front screens, due to the focusing abilities of the Fresnel lens and the distributive properties of the lenticular lens. Furthermore, optical rear projection screens from dnp incorporate technology that enhances the image contrast, says Mr. Vasilis Kyriazis of Telmaco S.A.
The new display is used to run replays and display game information during sports events in the arena - especially when the Doukas School, which is one of the best handball teams in Greece, is playing. But the display has also made the arena well suited for other events that require high-level AV facilities - such as exhibitions and concerts.
