As always, Mediatec’s giant LED screen captured the finest replay action!
Following their success in securing a three year contract with Silverstone “The home of British Motor Sport”, Mediatec supplied a staggering 25 giant LED screens to the event, ensuring its grand total of 315,000 spectators over the course of the event, were guaranteed an exceptional viewing experience.
Boasting the largest inventory in Europe, Mediatec had the ability to supply LED screens ranging from 15sqm to 88sqm in size, consisting of both mobile and modular systems. They were situated in optimum viewing positions around the track, including the integration of three new positions that saw screens suspended from the new Pit lane building. Their 14 strong team, were onsite throughout the event, including the week leading up to commencement.
Mark Gent, Senior Project Manager commented, “Planning and time management is crucial to the success of an event of this magnitude. There is no room for error in delivery and construction due to Mediatec working in such close partnership with copious onsite contractors, if we’d fallen behind schedule, there would have been a knock- on effect to the event build. .
Alex Lacey, Head of Events at Silverstone commented, “It is vital that the loyal Silverstone fans get the best experience possible when visiting the British Grand Prix and that includes giving them the opportunity of seeing everything the event has to offer both on and off track. Our dedicated Silverstone TV channel is broadcast around the site onto the giant screens supplied by Mediatec and is an important part of the weekend for our spectators”.
