Minimal Effort — Maximum Effect
The set design for the show "Zur Sache Extra — Nationalpark Schwarzwald" on SWR

Recording in a TV studio is a challenge in itself. Everything must run smoothly — for the perfect performance, for the perfect broadcast. However, image and sound aren’t the only things that have to shift with in seconds and correspond as well. What’s important above all is the aura of the set. The studio must come alive, flow, radiate. The scene of action should be interesting, modern and richly illuminated. However, it should not by any means distract from the host or the guest and, ideally, it should be quick and uncomplicated to set up. And this is exactly where the challenge lies. Thanks to an LED horizon equipped with LED products from Schnick-Schnack-Systems, the SWR (Southwest German Radio) broadcaster was able to tackle this challenge with ease, as can be seen on the show "Zur Sache Extra — Nationalpark Schwarzwald".

New Product
The C-Dot-RGB, video controlled, single dots freely arranged
Our C-Dots open up new and more creative design possibilities for you. Since the Dots are not bound to a fixed grid, it’s possible to create all kinds of different forms and structures — whether it’s circles, animated contours of a company logo, curved lines or freely formed displays — your creativity has no limits.

Each Dot is individually color-fabricated so more precise shades of white and pastels can be achieved. And thanks to our Smart Link technology, the time consuming addressing of the individual dots is no longer necessary.
