The world's biggest music event. With Faber as dedicated partner MTV EMEA 2022
Location - ISS Dome Düsseldorf, Germany
17 technicians on site for implementation.
In November 2022, Düsseldorf was the host. Florian Wieder, one of the most iconic stage designers of our time, designed the stage. Wieder was inspired by Düsseldorf music legend Kraftwerk. Visually, this translated into elements such as the larger-than-life robot head and hands, which were integrated into the stage as physical objects. The stage design also included more subtle details, such as the lectern that was used to present the awards. A technical masterpiece: the lectern, partly constructed of LED tiles, was mounted on an elevator so that the whole thing could rise from the stage.
Technical support, implementation and project management
In cooperation with other suppliers, we bore responsibility for technical support, project management and the implementation of Wieder’s concept. In total, we supplied over 750 m2 of LED panels for the main event of the EMA 2022. With a team of 17 technicians, we ensured that the event went according to plan.
750 m2 of LED
On the stage was a 200+ square meter LED backdrop built with ROE BQ4 panels. In front of this backdrop, we built 2 rectangular LED walls and three 3 movable LED screens driven by a motion control system. These movable LED screens were built with ROE Vanish V8T panels. These are semi-transparent LED screens that can be used to create unique show effects. In conjunction with the content, this created special 3D effects at the MTV EMEA show.
We also supplied a 260 m2 LED floor, built with ROE BM4 panels. The floor provided additional show effects and unique top shots during the live broadcasts. In addition, during Gayle’s main show, we mounted LED panels on the bed she used during her performance.
All the LED was controlled with media servers from Disguise. In this way, it was possible to create an end result that matched exactly what Wieder’s design team had in mind.
Red carpet and sponsor events
In parallel with the main event, Faber also provided LED for the Red Carpet and various sponsor events. A total of 17 Faber crew members were on site to ensure that everything went according to plan. It is with great pride that we can look back on another successful edition of the MTV EMAs.
