The first project Uniview took related to the Beijing Winter Olympics is the audio and video integrated project for the venues in the Zhangjiakou Olympics village. The outdoor LED screens from the three venues has to operate stably and consistently under the extreme cold weather (-50 degrees). At the same time, in order to perform a smooth broadcast, customize the high refresh IC chip and ultra-low temperature dual power supply is a necessity. Although the expected product delivery was right around the corner, Uniview managed to pull it off one week ahead of schedule. The Uniview LED screen officially debuted in the test events.

What product did Uniview deploy to the ice and snow sports venues? How is it going to deal with the humid environment and cold weather?

At this Winter Olympics, Uniview delivered the outdoor star product MW75XX series 5mm to cover two screens for biathlon (Biathlon Center), two screens for ski jumping (National Ski Jumping Centre), and one screen for Cross-country skiing arena (Kuyangshu Nordic Center), a total of five outdoor LED screens, 600 square meters. MW75XX series 5mm adopts high-quality lamp beads and high-refresh IC, dual backup of signal interface, dual backup of power supply interface to make the screens high-quality wide-voltage voltage stabilizer suitable, ultra-low temperature environment adaptable. High-efficiency moisture-proof power supply with PFC, anti-UV and flame retardant high-strength masks, IP65-level signals, power aviation plugs and other configurations are equipped to improve user experiences. In terms of water resistance, through module waterproofing, cabinet waterproofing, and key components waterproofing processes, the products are designed to work under heavy snow or humid environments. Lastly, low-temperature power supply as well as self-generative heating devices are embedded for cold resistance.

Uniview helped renovating and upgrading the video equipment and cables from the Capital Gymnasium, and built a network-based, integrated and intelligent overall centralized management system. Tell us more about this system?

The Capital Gymnasium is a key supporting project in Beijing Zone from the 2022 Winter Olympics, covering a total of ​​54,600 square meters. It will undertake two games, short track speed skating and figure skating.
