To make sure Dutch football fans got the best visuals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup games last summer, Dutch broadcaster NOS installed a new studio set to replace the old one for its NOS Studio sport and NOS Sport news channels.

The most remarkable difference between the old and the new set is the use of state-of-the-art LED  technique that makes viewers feel like they are right there in VIP section of the stadium looking down on the playing area, or right in the centre of the action. With the three newly procured Barco LED screens – type X4 and X1.6 —it is possible to broadcast a variety of programs from one location, and even combine them.

Installed by Dutch audio-visual integrator AVEX International, their team of specialists set up the visual display on the back wall of the studio and two smaller ones that can be moved around the studio floor.. The LED displays are 38m2 , 10m2 and 4m2, energy efficient, and with high image quality. A diffusor screen is used to make the X4 even more impressive for the demanding viewing audience at home.
