Many, as usual, the authorities present at this important annual event: among the 2,500 participants there were Italy's President Giorgio Napolitano, the Chairmen of both the Chamber of Deputies and of the Senate Hon. Renato Schifani and Gianfranco Fini, the Italian Minister of Industry, Hon. Paolo Romani, many other members of the Government and the Bank of Italy Governor Mr. Mario Draghi.
The intervention of Tecnoconference Europe, providing all the technical services with the planning and the coordination, was based on a sophisticated multi-video projection system.
It consisted of six high-brightness 20,000 and 12,500 ansilumen projectors managed altogether as one, resulting in a single giant projection impacting on a 16 x 4 meters screen and giving an unparalleled spectacular outcome.
The Video Direction managed four full HD cameras, on two of which were mounted special optics, suitable for excellent resolution close-ups even from a distance of 60 metres.
The emission direction, working in a standard even higher than full HD, true heart of the entire system, consisted of five digital graphic mixers.
The simultaneous translation, through a digital red infrared system, allowed foreign visitors to follow the works, while in the huge press room nine closed circuit monitors allowed journalists to follow the proceedings in the hall and provided the many radio and television networks with the broadcast video and audio signals.
Even this year's speech of President Ms. Emma Marcegaglia was supported by the use of the teleprompter: Tecnoconference Europe adopts its most modern version, made up with transparent ultrabright screens.
Tecnoconference Europe also intervened both in Confindustria's private meeting during the previous day, shooting it with a two-camera studio direction, and in the official dinner – held in the Montemartini Museum at the presence of Prime Minister Hon. Silvio Berlusconi – to which it provided the sound and lighting system (external and internal).
