Two new TV set designs: Schnick-Schnack-Systems provides LED Strips
Since the beginning of this year, the German television programme Nano on ZDF is adhering to a new visual concept. The move to a new studio inspired a contemporary look. And, last fall the set of the 3sat TV magazine show Scobel was redesigned. Schnick-Schnack-Systems provided the LED technology for both productions.
With the move into a new studio, the set for the science magazine Nano was updated. The new design raises the Nano logo to the most important design form and all other studio elements follow suit. The “O” serves as the key visual. It is made up of radially arranged circular segments. They accent the spatial dimension and enable the letter to appear differently from every angle since they never merge optically without overlapping. It therefore symbolises the continual search for scientific knowledge that never ends. The data, on which research is based, is in constant movement and flows on an LED wall in the background. In order to make the elements video playable, Schnick-Schnack-Systems provided 1,800 B25-250 LED Strips, 400 B25-125 LED Strips as well as 60 Sys One control modules.
The visual concept for the informational television magazine Scobel also draws on technology from Schnick-Schnack-Systems for a significant part of its appeal. The discussion table is the middle of spiral form that stretches from alongside the standing desk up to the rear wall of the studio. Horizontal slats symbolise the programme’s interdisciplinary approach. In order to bring the studio installation into the desired perspective and to open diverse lighting options, Schnick-Snack-Systems provided 1,000 B25-250 LED Strips and 26 Sys One controls
Boris Banozic developed concepts and designs for both projects. Altelier Markgraph was entrusted with the realisation. When it came to deciding on an LED supplier, Schnick-Schnack-Systems and the B Series LED Strips were chosen because their RGB LEDs offer the highest available bin and thanks to current/voltage controllers on the boards a consistent brightness is ensured. What’s more, their 25,000-hour lifespan was also convincing. For its part, the Sys One controller is ideally suited for the sound-sensitive studio environment: the controller functions without a fan and still allows stable operation.
