The 2014 Commonwealth Games took place in Glasgow, Scotland, from 23 July to 3 August 2014. It was the biggest multi-sport event ever held in Scotland with around 4,950 athletes from 71 different nations competing in 18 different sports.
The hype about the big screen was all over Twitter.

After a thorough tender by the Glasgow Science Centre, the division specialized in Digital Signage from ITAB UK, was awarded the turnkey project for the Outdoor LED Display. The total size of the screen manufactured by Wavetec covered an area of 55 m2 (15.3 mt width x 3.6 mt height) with a high resolution achieved with a pitch 8 mm, required in order to provide a superb viewing experience to the audience standing near to the screen. Furthermore, the SMD technology of the LEDs, allowed for a wide viewing angle without compromising on the brightness of the videos and images. The content of the screen is managed by Wavetec’s web based CMS and Canvas Designer.

The main goal of the project is to display live videos at the Glasgow Science Centre’s main entrance to develop an effective and captivating visual impact engaging the audience visiting the site.
