In addition to smart cabling infrastructure which ensured aisles and stairways remained clear at all times, the tablets themselves automatically retracted leaving aisles clear. In total, TAIT incorporated 70,500 pixel tablets into the Olympic Stadium’s seating bowl.
The hand-held units, which were lightweight enough to hold comforatbly, were used by the stadium audience in choreographed moves directed by the ceremonies’ team.
The process, from design, development, manufacturing and commencement of system installation, took just four months.
Fun Fact: As a result, TAIT is a Guinness World Record Holder for the “World’s Largest Landscape Video Display.”
