Scarva – Sham Fight 2016

Production AV were once again back in Northern Ireland working for BNL to provide an LED screen solution for the 2016 Scarva Sham Fight. Over 100,000 braved the rain to watch the annual re-enactment of the Battle of the Boyne. It was a really honour to be apart of something that holds so much cultural importance to so many people.

6mm Outdoor Reenactment LED Screens

Back out were our Desay 6.25mm LED Panels ready to test their waterproof design against whatever the weather could throw at it. Two 4.8m x 2.7m screens were built at separate locations on site using Mobil Tech AlpTek 6.5m stands and truss to fly them off the ground. There were a pair of Nova MCTRL660 Processors for each screen with the latter acting as a backup for the main processor. Each screen also had an ImagePRO II Dual which was used to feed content.

On site for the length of the march was one of our LED Technicians who made sure the show ran smoothly from our end.  Endless streams of colorful, eye catching marchers lined the streets of Scarva playing a variety of instruments and in the end it was John Adair, who played King Billy, was victorious – again – on his 25th anniversary of acting the part.

It was a real pleasure to work again with BNL and we look forward to continuing to grow this working relationship with them. Thank you as well to Tourism Northern Ireland and the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council for giving support to the big day.
