Water – wisdom – world of well-being. That is the motto under which visitors to the Hansgrohe Aquademie (www.aquademie.de) in Schiltach (Black Forest) can experience all about the themes of „Water“, „Bathrooms“ and „Design“: The globally active manufacturer of taps and shower-heads present their brands, products, and design worlds in an approximately 4,000 m² training and event center at the company headquarters. A 20 m² high resolution Video Wall serves as multi-media staging for the Hansgrohe bathroom exhibition. The Video Wall was implemented with inspireLED technology from the company ICT Innovative Communication Technologies AG (Kohlberg).
The long-range effect of the LED Wall is achieved not only by its large format, color intensive moving images in the bright, light-flooded brand landscape, but above all by its elevated positioning on an open steel supporting framework running through the show-room. With its lower edge 3 meters above the ground, the 84 inspireLED modules are mounted in a free-standing, panelled special construction which in turn is mounted on one of the steel girders. Thanks to the low installation depth of the inspire s6b LED modules used here, the ICT specially manufactured LED construction, with a total depth of only 20 cm, fits harmoniously into the design oriented show-room. The feed technology for the Display Wall is located in an exhibit placed below the LED Wall. An ICT redCat-Application serves as feed system which enables the timed control of various contents as well as editing of content updates by Hansgrohe themselves. Other external signal sources can be connected as feeds via a selector switch so that the LED Wall can also be used e.g. for displaying live camera images of events in the show-room. „The biggest challenge, apart from the required low installation depth of the static construction of the LED Wall, was above all the brightness of the show-room“, says Toni Krsteski, Key Account Manager at ICT AG. „We have found the ideal solution here with the slim-line and bright inspireLED modules for equipping the Hansgrohe brand world accordingly“, concludes Mr. Krsteski.
