Vilnius, Lithuania (PRWEB) May 11, 2014
On May 9th, the World Ice Hockey Championship was opened with a unique 3D projection on ice that transformed the rink into a 4K screen. International Hockey Federation entrusted the opening of the most important event of the year – the world championship – to the team from Lithuania 'PM Screen' which is famous for its non-traditional 3D projections.
Fifteen thousand spectators in Minsk arena and millions of TV viewers watched a six-minute-long 3D projection produced by a sophisticated technical system worth one million euros. The script for the opening ceremony of the World Ice Hockey championship was written by a famous Byelorussian producer Vyacheslav Nikolavitch Panin.
"The whole opening ceremony of the World Ice Hockey championship lasted 15 -17 minutes and the six minutes entrusted to us were a significant part of the event. Our team of animators and video engineers had a little over a month to create a highly dynamic 3D projection, presenting Byelorussia and portraying the effectiveness and speed of ice-hockey as a sport," - said the representative of 'PM Screen' in Byelorussia Rytis Kričenas.
Having beaten globally known companies in the competition to create video projections for the opening of the World Ice Hockey Championship, 'PM Screen' installed 12 very powerful 'Full HD Barco' projectors, the total number of lumens being over 240 000 lmn, which is about 240 000 times more than the signal produced by ordinary projectors. According to R. Kričenas, the technical solution of the project equals to that of a complex project group. "Generally speaking, the whole hockey rink turned into a 4K resolution screen."
Having started its business four years ago, today 'PM Screen' operates in five countries – Lithuania, Denmark, Norway, Georgia, and Brasil – and by the end of the year, the company will have its representative unit in the USA. The 3D projections created by this young company brightened the concerts of David Gueta and Mobi, Eurobasket 2012, and other events; and the ingenious creativity of the group made castles 'tumble' and buildings 'rise' in Estonia, Denmark, Georgia, and other countries.
