Do you know that world’s biggest e-sport arena is build in Poland ?
Once again, the ARAM company was responsible for the stage design as well as the complex technical production of Intel Extreme Masters 2017, an event that took place in Katowice and is probably biggest e-sport tournament in the world.
It is traditional that the Intel Extreme Masters finals are held in Katowice; in Spodek and in the International Conference Centre (MCK). It should be mentioned that stages designed and built by the Poles are considered the best in the world and shown globally as a model in many marketing materials. Apart from designing and building this gigantic multimedia stage, ARAM designed and built three smaller stages for IEM EXPO, along with TV studios for the needs of broadcasting, and the company also delivered equipment and structures for nearly 10 exhibition stands.

Every year we raise standards for IEM. We want the stage to surprise, to be even more interesting and breathtaking. It seems that we succeeded also this year. We received a lot of congratulations and words of recognition from many people from both e-sport and show-business sector from Poland and abroad.”
Our role is so much more than equipment rental. Operating in the ‘from design to effect’ model requires considerable commitment on our part in the early stage, but it gives comfort to the organizers. Working for nearly 5 years and knowing the needs of this specific e-sport market, we are able to design and build tailor-made stages, which are regarded globally as an example to be followed.
What is interesting, the tournament has expanded so much that this year the organizers decided to divide the event into two weekends; during the first one (25–26 February) we could see the finals of a popular game, League of Legends, whereas during the second IEM weekend (3–5 March) the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and StarCraft II competitions as well as the IEM EXPO Fair took place in the International Conference Centre, where the participants competed in Heroes of the Storm and Cross Fire, and the Cybersport Polish Cup Finals were held.
IEM is a format of electronic sports competitions. Several years ago, the Germany-based ESL company decided to organize this event in Spodek in Katowice. Since then the event has been expanding so dynamically that every new edition is even more spectacular. Technologically developed stages, the latest lighting and multimedia elements available in the market, live integration of the stage and the game, advanced pyrotechnic effects; all for the visitors and spectators watching the games online so that they could watch their idols and the best players in the world competing, with even more pleasure.
There is no concerts or festival like New Year’s Eve in the city!. They tend to be a visual and acoustic experience for those who attend but a challenge for the technicians behind the stage.
Technical and logistical requirements are diverse, and the expectations for lighting, video and live sound are very high. Every production today features videos and live broadcasts on LED screens, which are often associated with complex kinetic designs.
Our process begins with a consultation to gain an understanding of the desired look and feel of the show or event. We take great efforts to cater each stage design into the architectural environment, while exclusively customizing the look and feel to match your needs.
No detail is too small, no project is too large, so whether your project requires 8 or 180 lights, we are experts at integrating all the design and technologies necessary to provide an unparalleled experience.

Today, we are a different company, we have the best multimedia equipment in Poland and dynamically developing lighting and stage design department. At this point I would like to thank all employees and associates who have helped us become what it is today ARAM!
And we promise to go further than in the pursuit of perfection!
Here are the photos of the show that we had the honor to serve, „Here Beats Heart of Europe” was organized on the occasion of Polish accession to the EU.

We just invested in 50 pcs. of WASHes 🙂 The new device is „moving heads” Fourlight FL-600 WASH , which have already shown their capabilities. Also showed high reliability which spoke that we decided to choose the FL-600 and not the product form ROBE 😉
Do you know that it is possible to build a high resolution LED screen with no visible gaps – an arc ….. curved both inside and outside?
This is the Fourlight CURVE 8mm . Curtain or LED screen – because it is a „2 in 1” can be curved and in both directions creating WAVY LED displays. So whether it will be ARC PANORAMA or CYLINDER (as shown below) – there is no limit for us!
Since the birth of the indoor LED screens there is a myth that the resolution is to small to display charts with thin arrows and small fonts and everything which is small and difficult to read.
During the 2013 Event Technology Days we had the opportunity to show how the graph looks on the 6mm LED screen. Below photo is taken from a very short distance – even though the pixels that the camera sees much more than the human eye the graph can be fully visible and read – you can see thin lines on a thickness of 1 pixel and a small font size.
The test has been made on the screen Fourlight Smart 6BK (6mm)
Some very first pictures form Miss Supranational giant multimedia set we build in Belarus last week. Show was a big success….
Can you believe that outer curve 8mm curtain can be gap free!? It’s fact. this is Fourlight CURVE 8.

FlexLED 19mm curtain…. above
On ceiling you may think it’s BARCO Mi-strip, but it’s NOT. It’s our brand new Fourlight Hi-strip video lines where one led is always one pixel, 5050 led guaranty high brightness….
