Siliconcore Scales reaches the Summit with Video-wall install

In a world first, holidaymakers at the Swiss ski resort of Zermatt are being kept abreast of ski lift information and safety messages via five LED videowalls installed at altitudes of up to 3,000 metres by cable car company Zermatt Bergbahnen. Featuring LED displays from SiliconCore (chosen for their brightness and energy efficiency), the 3.4m x 2.4m videowalls are housed in climate-controlled steel enclosures custom-built by Vangenhassend GmbH.

These protect the displays from extreme weather conditions, including a temperature range of -20 to +55 degrees Celsius, through a combination of 16mm protective glass, with UV/IR filters and an anti-glare coating; brightness/temperature/humidity sensors, with automatic adjustment on very bright days; a remote control unit; and rear access for servicing.

The one-of-a-kind project was completed in six weeks by Netvico GmbH, which also provides real-time videowall content management through its PlayEverywhere software platform, and Richnerstutz AG, which managed project logistics including the hiring of specialist Kamov Helicopters to reach the most remote sites.
