Denmark - The AV Center and Panasonic provided a superb visual experience for the crowd at The Eurovision Song Contest.

Eight projection screens measuring 6.5m each and 130 flat panel displays were installed in the auditorium, green room and off-stage areas, to ensure waiting contestants and the audience didn’t miss a single note or vote from the show.

Audio-visual solution specialists, AV Center, were given the task of creating the innovative display set-up for the event, won this year by the bearded Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst.

Mikkel Behrend, rental manager at AV Center, said: "In close collaboration with Panasonic, we managed to meet the organiser’s high expectations by providing a reliable, state-of-the-art technology solution at an extremely competitive cost. We hope to work with Panasonic again when delivering such visual solutions for large-scale events."

Karoly Neumann, Nordic Country Manager for Panasonic, said: "The event is watched by over 170 million people at home, but for the 11,000 people who get to watch live, it’s important that they feel part of the action.

"The high resolution of the multiple screens gave the audience and contestants a crisp and colourful image and made sure they enjoyed their night."
