From September 25 to October 9, the 2016 China Open witnessed the debut of the National Tennis Center of Olympic Forest Park. Planar played a critical role in bringing high impact visual elements to this sporting event and the world stage. LED video wall displays (5mm and 10mm pixel pitch) provided by Planar measured 700 square meters (7,534 square feet) in total and were a critical part of the event.
Several different LED video wall display installations highlight the stadium. The nearly 600 m2 (6,458 square feet) ribbons of LED created a perimeter signage in the stadium, adding to the fan experience. The nearly 100 m2 outdoor LED helped extend the experience to the park surrounding the complex.
At the 2016 China Open, the ATP superstars came together, including the singles winner, Britain's Andy Murray and Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska. Others playing including Novak Kjokovic, Rafael Nadal, Milos Raonic, Monica Puig, Belinda Bencic, and the American Venus Williams. The tournament organizers used the slogan "My Court" to illustrate that in the field of world-class athletics a stadium like the new National Tennis Center can make every one a winner. It's everyone's home court.
