MEDIA SPECTRUM installs large media wall at Düsseldorf Airport! Since April 2016, Düsseldorf Airport has one more technical attraction. MEDIA SPECTRUM spent weeks installing the largest indoor media wall at a German airport.

Strictly speaking, there are actually two walls mounted next to each other, which broadcast their high-resolution image to the east and west. At almost seven metres wide and around four metres high, these walls are among the world’s largest fixed installations of Seamless Walls. Each wall is equipped with 25 Sharp Seamless Displays of 60 inches each. In addition to the high luminous intensity of the displays, the resolution of the two walls, which can play back spots in 4K quality, is particularly impressive.

Despite the total weight of about four tonnes, the walls appear almost filigree and thus fit in wonderfully with the architecture of Düsseldorf Airport. This is mainly due to the fact that the media walls are only held by two motors with a load-bearing capacity of 2.5 tonnes each and are not fixed at any other point. This makes them appear as if they are gliding almost weightlessly in space. For this installation, MEDIA SPECTRUM drew on its extensive wealth of experience in event technology.

The implementation of this mammoth project was absolutely on schedule, despite the elaborate considerations and calculations in advance, which were carried out together with the planning department of Düsseldorf Airport and the technical planning agency BEN HUR from Cologne. This is because both the motors and the displays are checked and maintained annually. For this purpose, the complete media wall is moved down to the arrivals level. “We have found a solution here where the replacement motors take over the load at the moment the standard motors are removed for maintenance,” says Jörg Bettray. “And, of course, the strict fire protection regulations at Düsseldorf Airport are also complied with.”

Düsseldorf Airport can now offer its advertising customers a new dimension of digital airport advertising with its new DUS AD BOARD.


In autumn 2018, the next project followed, which we were allowed to realise for Düsseldorf Airport. One of the largest digital outdoor advertising surfaces at German airports was installed on the modern airport grounds of the NRW state capital. The LED wall measures a full 16.128m wide x 9.216m high and thus has a total area of almost 150m². The weight of the LED wall is 5.2 tonnes, whereby the total weight of the installation including the substructure was not allowed to exceed seven tonnes.

Below are a few more technical highlights of the LED wall:
– Format: 16:9
– Resolution: 2688 x 1563 pixels
– Pixel pitch 6mm
– Brightness more than 5.000 Nit
– Viewing angle 110°, both horizontal and vertical
– Protection class: IP65
– Feed and controller are redundant
– Remote maintenance possible
– 168 cabinets
– each row of cabinets can be freely levelled

Düsseldorf Airport has thus taken the next big step in the digitalisation of advertising space and can offer advertisers a high-quality and modern product in the form of the “Premium Digital Skywall”.
