The organization responsible for the visit of Pope Franciscus in Romania last week, chose and trusted the Belgian led supplier HD Ledshine. Hundreds of thousands of believers visited the Papal mass in Transylvania for an open-air Holy mass and they were able to follow everything from up close thanks to the huge screens of HD Ledshine, which were transported to Romania specifically for this occasion.

“It was a challenging job!” says Max Verbruggen, Project Director. “The six big screens had to be mounted on top of a hill with an inclination up to 40%. Moreover, there were no hardened roads! This place of Pilgrimage is only smoothly accessible by foot – but no challenge too big for HD Ledshine!”

In order to get the mobile screen trailers safely at their locations, provisional roads were constructed by big industrial machines and hardened with rocks and steel plates. These precautions were more than welcome, as the biggest trailer screen weighs over 40 tons in combination with its pulling vehicle. “Even with all these precautions, we still had to take unforeseen circumstances into account. It had been heavily raining the last few days before buildup, which created an extra obstacle – but in the end everything got into place safely and the event was a succes!”

In total HD Ledshine provided 300 sqm LED, all of them installed on an efficient trailer system. The Romanian company, in charge of the technical organization for the Pope visit, saw the screens of HD Ledshine for the first time at Prolight+Sound 2019 in Frankfurt earlier that year and they were instantly interested. We presented both units of World’s largest mobile LED screen right next to each other. “This means 288 sqm, built up by 2 technicians within less than 2 hours, something we can be very proud of!” – says CEO Tony Winter.

HD Ledshine still has a lot of international events coming up for this summer. Mid-june the whole stock of mobile screens will be located in Paris and Dortmund for several events. In July there will be a big movie night in front of the Arc de Triomphe and later on they will be part of the GP Formula 1 in Hockenheim, Germany. Also nationally, HD Ledshine will be present at several events.
