NanoLumens is backdrop to Bike Show

A NanoLumens flexible display was recently used by exhibition production company, Standby, as a backdrop to the London Bike Show in ExCel. The 112” screen was hung on a truss above the live action in the Skoda Bike Arena and showed sponsor videos, associated footage and company logos.

Dave Cooper of Standby said: “We are the first production company to use the NanoLumens display since it was brought to the UK in January. It is a 112” display with all the picture quality and brightness of LED, but its lightweight and easy to install properties means it could be hung above the arena with very little infrastructure. Our clients were able to show full motion footage on this incredible large display with the minimum of fuss.”

The Skoda Bike Arena was hosted by Scottish group The Clan , which performed cycle stunt shows. The team who represent Scottish riders from trials, BMX and mountain biking showcased their skills, doing regular displays throughout the show.

Standby also created a diverse range of feature areas throughout this show and sister shows the Outdoors Show and London Boat Show 2011. The crew was kept busy with around half a dozen small seminar stages and larger features such as the British Bouldering Championships and the Skymasters suspended climbing wall. The Outdoors Show also required a substantial “Heroes Theatre” in the Platinum Suite at ExCeL, playing host to speakers such as Sir Rannolph Fiennes and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. Meanwhile, the London Boat Show hosted the Watersports Arena, a combination of live-action shows and watersports taster sessions for visitors. Standby provided a complete technical package including full water-quality management and installation of the nearly 2 million litre capacity pool.
