Giant Infinite plasma wall helps unveil Olympic uniforms

Infinite plasma screen helps unveil Olympic uniforms.

Infinite plasma technology from Advanced Products Group helped showcase the clothes that will be worn by Canada’s Olympic athletes at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

Themed “The Olympic Games, Stylized”, this recent event took place at Muzik Nightclub on Exhibition Grounds in Toronto and took the form of a fashion show organized by APG’s client Hudson’s Bay Company to launch the Olympic athletes’ apparel – including the official Team Canada uniforms.

The show was greatly enhanced by an array of visually stunning audio visual effects including a highly visible backdrop provided by Advanced Inc. created using 36 seamless Infinite plasma panels wired with over 900ft of cabling. The panel display took around a day to set up. Placed at the top end of the stage, the display had a live HD camera feed of the catwalk models as well as pumping out custom-designed HD video material created over a two year period. Input was provided in HD-SDI format from ‘front of house’ and converted to DVI prior to being fed into the wall.

The over-size screen created a highly stylized atmosphere built like a sports stadium with the screen as the ‘scoreboard’. The stage resembled a figure-8 running track with the audience were seated on industrial, unfinished stadium bleachers and the floor covered in astro-turf.

The event passed off flawlessly which can be attributed to a dedicated sales team, impeccable project management and a skilled technical support and installation team willing to go over and above to make every request of the client a successful and stress-free reality.
