Held in Munich in the middle of November, electronica 2022 highlighted its significance as the electronics industry's leading global trade fair and conference platform – with over 2,100 exhibitors presenting their innovations across the entire electronics spectrum to 70,000 attendees. "meplan" designed the brand presentation at electronica for NewPower Worldwide, the fast growing globally operating distributor for the procurement and redistribution of electronic components, computer products and peripherals. Like us, these experts for the perfect trade fair experience are service partners of Messe München and commissioned us to plan and implement the suspension points and trusses as well as the lighting, audio, video and camera equipment.
One of the visual elements of the booth concept was based on around 700 metres of LED stripes. They were installed by meplan, and we integrated them into a data network. With half of the LED stripes, all the pixels could be activated individually, creating impressive effects for the about 30 light universes.
A further challenge we were able to master thanks to ideal collaboration with meplan was the suspension of a video cube consisting of four 98-inch LED displays. In order to suspend this eye-catcher in the middle of NewPower Worldwide's booth, the substructure was modified to save weight.
The booth itself boasted two more 98-inch and 75-inch displays supplied with content from a video control desk. In her role of video director, Christine Clemenz from Chili Concept coordinated the footage from three camera operators and a "domecam". We provided the equipment for recording as well as for signal and image mixing along with the playback, the corresponding servers and a powerful multi-display software. The LED stripes and moving lights were controlled from a digital mixing desk. We also chose the lights, which allowed us a great deal of flexibility in controlling the colour temperature. We installed the PA system in a ring around the display cube so that attendees were able to accurately localise the sound.
