Tetris Blitz Featured on Odyssey's Led Screen Premiere
Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza official première of the biggest outdoor, concave LED screen in the world
March 10, 2016 — Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza will be lighting up the White Island over the coming summer season with the biggest, concave LED screen in the world, which has just celebrated its official première.
Measuring 30 metres high by 13.20 metres wide, this new screen is another feature of Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza’s great acclaims in conjunction with its unbeatable location, five star fittings, world-class artistic performances, and rock and entertainment activities.
The official première and first lighting up of the nearly 400 m2 LED screen that covers the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza façade was attended by Abel Matutes Juan, President of Grupo Empresas Matutes, and Antonio García Valdecasas, President of Odyssey Leds Group.
Guests witnessed a live demonstration of the iconic TETRIS® game being projected on the screen as attendees played TETRIS BLITZ, through a mobile device, whilst the entire event was streamed through Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza’s YouTube channel. This display exemplified the innovative progress coming to Ibiza this summer, as the screen permits interaction with social networks from any mobile device, and the entire contents can be viewed via streaming on the Odyssey Ibiza web platform.
This screen will broadcast non-stop, 24 hours a day, with a remotely managed exclusive television channel. A limited, exclusive number of sponsors will light up the Ibiza skyline, together with Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, the main sponsor.
This unique project has been developed by Odyssey Leds Group, based on a patent owned by MCM Group to exploit double-layered façade publicity using LED technology.
The screen is 100% modulated and designed to display multiple independent contents simultaneously (still images, animation, video clips, etc.) as well as individual content across the entire screen, comprised of more than 663,600 pixels, 2000:1 contrast, brightness >6,500 cd/ m2 and adjustable luminosity.
Another interesting feature of the screen is its concave design of 8.7 degrees, making it a unique outdoor visual experience, with a better sensation of depth that simulates a 3D effect and reduces image distortion and lateral reflections.
Architect Xavier Sales, partner of the construction company owned by Antonio García Valdecasas’s, President of Odyssey Ibiza, alongside the team of the architecture studio Xavier Sales Associates, have been responsible for managing and executing the construction of the Odyssey Leds Group Ibiza screen.
