WIcreations, in conjunction with technical production suppliers United Productions, used its new WImotion system and proprietary MCA automation control to animate an LED video wall as part of the centenary celebrations of KLM, a Dutch national airline.
WImotion with MCA control is a new system from Belgian entertainment engineering specialist WIcreations as a solution that meets stringent safety regulations worldwide and is fully compliant with all the current and new standards.
The KLM Experience event took place at Hangar 10 at the Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.
The screen supplied by Wlcreations measured 17 metres long by 5.7 metres high, and split into three sections. The centre screen was 10.5 wide, and was flanked by two at 3.36 metres wide The screens total weight was 2.6 tonnes.
On the video wall, a film taking an in-depth look at KLM’s development over the decades and its influence in the history of international civil aviation was screened.
The project was managed for WIcreations by Geert Stockmans who worked closely with Unlimited’s Bart Roelen.
Geert said: “MCA offered a perfect solution for this high-profile event, combining accurate, dynamic control with reliability and all the correct certification. This was also an ideal scenario for the system which offers powerful and intuitive next-generation automation control for numerous applications.”
Other components of the automation system included metres of WI-track and several Wl-hoists.
The event programme also included three gala dinners; two for KLM executives, managers and board members, and one for officials, politicians and dignitaries.
On other days, the KLM Experience show was run several times for groups of students involved with aerospace engineering, aeronautical design and other associated industries, as well as past and present KLM employees and their families, meaning the automation was constantly in motion.
KLM is now the world’s oldest airline, as well as the first airline still operating under its original name to reach its centennial.
