Business areas – What we can do for you

  • We advise architects, construction companies, advertising agencies, city authorities and cultural institutes on the integration of displays into buildings, facades, stadiums and arenas, as well as on technical equipment for interiors.

Complex solutions

We build, develop, design, install and put display systems and projects into effect for corporate, advertising, retail, creative and sports market segments.

As well as supplying standard products, we offer a wide range of customised solutions designed specifically for your project. Our display modules are variable in their model, size, colour and housing according to your needs. The same applies to the frames and the entire environment within which the display will be integrated. We are pleased to realise your ideas.

Our product range includes indoor and outdoor display systems with SMD, IMD, COB or DIP LED configuration, perimeter, fascia, cube, flexible and stripe systems. Alongside this, we supply our own range of self-developed control components.
