Creative Technology (CT) has provided an LED flooring system as well as full video production and playback solution for Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Baku 2015 European Games, held from the 12th to the 28th of June.
The Opening Ceremony was inspired by the cultural legacy of Azerbaijan and featured US pop star Lady Gaga. CT’s systems supplied power to the Stadium LED boards, ribbon display and LED pillows cladding the outside of the stadium.
For the Closing Ceremony CT provided NX7 LED floor tiles manufactured by VISS LIGHTING. The NX7 features 7.8 mm pixel pitch and allows for creating non-reflective, slippery-resist surfaces with almost invisible seams between panels, the announcement said. The floor system was installed on three sculpted scenes featuring the shape of Buta – national symbol of Azerbaijan and covering totally 450m².
