Frankfurt International Motor Show 2009
The 63rd Frankfurt International Motorshow has recently ended. Over the Press Days, Mediatec supplied a complete press conference solution for Volvo Cars with no less than one 3-camera and 6 VB channel production in full HD, three simultaneous picture productions, prompter system, PA system, speaker lighting and show lighting comprising of twenty four VL 3000 and six VL 2500 adjustable lights. We handled the press conferences using only 10 people - a uniquely low number for such a production and the result of multi-tasking within the group. Another noteworthy point concerning our role at Frankfurt was the supply of our in-house developed distribution system for programs, images and sound for journalists at the event.
For the new Media Wall in Volvo’s exhibition space, Mediatec supplied seven LED screens comprising Chromatek 4 mm and Barco Olite 612. On top of this, Mediatec also supplied seven hundred Olite 510 Pucks for the flooring and complete HD broadcasting technology for all screens. These comprised a Medialon Control System controlling four Doremi HD servers and two Hippotizer media servers.
But it doesn’t end there. For Volvo’s exhibition space, Mediatec also supplied 520 m of trussing, 40 motors, 254 daylight lamps, 1200 m2 of fabric, a D&B speaker system and a brand new creative solution involving roof channels that hid the large amount of adjustable lights and speakers used for press conferences.
