Lighthouse in the zone in Vienna

AUTHOR: Inavate

Travelling football fans visiting Vienna for the UEFA Euro 2008 tournament are being entertained by almost 500 square metres of Lighthouse LED screens supplied by local rental partner Weiner Medien Werkzeuge.

The Fan Zone provides a carnival environment where fans of all teams can mix and enjoy the football on giant LED screens. A total of 11 screens are installed around the enclosed area in the centre of Vienna, made up of a number of different LED products.

“We have used R12, R10, R7-ER and R19 depending on the size of the screen, and the area it is serving.” Said Christian Wymetal, general manager of WMW. “We’ve used all our stock of R7 on this job.”

WMW won the contract with the City of Vienna in a competitive bid with four other companies, and then worked in co-operation with the consultant who designed the Fan Zone to decide which screens would be best suited to each location.

The screens will remain in place until the end of the tournament on June 29th 2008.
