ColossoVision was excited and thrilled when awarded the opportunity to provide its LED screens and secondary infield production support for the Luge World Championships in Whistler BC. “Our company has provided screens for the World Cup Luge since 2006 and has had the opportunity to watch the growth of the athletes into world class competitors. Back in 2006, some of the Canadian competitors were forerunners and today they are competing with the best Luge athletes in the world!” says Andy Soltesz, President of ColossoVision.
In hosting this last World Championships before the Sochi 2014 games, Whistler wanted to “Spruce up the spectator area with some massive video screens” giving spectators an opportunity to see the race from the start to the finish.

1 - VisuaLED ST118 screen 21ft x 11ft Corner 16 - Trim height 16 ft off ground
