Christie in MODO media cube
Having recently equipped the ice hockey stadium of Skellefteå AIK, one of Sweden’s best known teams, with Christie projection, Viju Sverige AB has gone one better.
The company has now produced an inspired Christie rearpro solution inside a huge octagonal cube (‘MediaKub’) for reigning Swedish champions MODO, in their new stadium in Örnsköldsvik.
While four 16:9 aspect ratio media faces produce the live action (and slo-mo replays) for audiences sitting in each of the four stands, these are interspersed with high performance digital scoreboards.
Mats Persson’s company is becoming something of a specialist in these installations. To address each of the 180in rearpro lenticular screens he has once again used Christie double-stacked Roadster HD12K 1080HD DLP projectors.
MODO (short for Mo och Domsjö AB, the name of their industrial sponsor) moved to their new stadium two years ago, but it was only recently that they were able to set a budget for the media relays.
