Hurtigruten Unveils Tallest LED Screen at Sea

LED Screen on Roald Amundsen

The new 530-guest Roald Amundsen will debut the tallest LED screen at sea when she debuts later this spring for Hurtigruten. 

Spanning seven decks and 17.5 meters in the ship's atrium, the screen will give the Hurtigruten guests a truly unique welcome when they step on board MS Roald Amundsen – the world’s first hybrid powered cruise ship.

"Our focus on state-of-the-art design, innovation and technology is not limited to the exterior. It also includes the interior and will take the guest experience to a whole new level. By introducing the tallest LED-screen at sea, we will bring – and magnify - the splendid beauty of the passing nature, to the guests inside," said Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam.

The screen will be located in MS Roald Amundsen’s atrium. Facing the three all-glass elevators, it towers all the way up to and including deck 10, according to the company.

Featuring cutting edge LED technology, the screen will provide a resolution beyond 4K Ultra-HD, with perfect seamless and borderless display.

"With stunning image quality, the technology offers endless possibilities: We can use it to stream live lectures and presentations, to set the theme for the voyage, or just create a special atmosphere. But most importantly, it will be utilized to broadcast the spectacular nature to our guests on board in a format never seen before," added Skjeldam.

The screen will measure 17.5 meters tall by 6.5 meters wide, with a total screen area of 114 square meters. The resolution will be 6,720 x 2,496 pixels. 

Content will include backdrops from landscapes; live coverage from outside the ship, captured by the ships professional photographer with the most advanced camera equipment in the world;  360 degree ultra-high resolution panoramic images from the mast; and live lectures and presentations from various onboard venues.
