Production:av supplied the prestigious Cheltenham Festival with video services for the annual event. With little change in the brief for the 4 day event this year, Production:av supplied the control side to ‘The Centaur’, including equipment and personnel. Taking the feeds from the Racetech broadcast feeds, Production:av supplied vision mixing and control equipment to send the signal to the supplied LED Screen. During the Mornings and after the racing finished cameras were utilised to relay action on the stage to the Large screen. Powerpoint and DVD sources also made appearances through the course of the event, especially in the run up to Thursdays first ‘Ladies Day’.
Per Una Fashion Show
The first Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival was held on the Thursday of the 4 day event. The centre piece of the day was the Per Una fashion show held in The Centaur. Two shows where held prior to the days racing. Giving the Ladies present in the audience the chance to see the new collections available from April, the shows were well received.
Technically the shows were of minimal additional requirements to the system that was already in place. Two additional cameras attended to capture the event for later promotional purposes, with the footage being taken backProduction:av, and then to the main screen, and also being fed back to the racecourse control, from where the images were sent to the rest of the racecourse.
Production:av was delighted to be involved and recognised as part of an ‘extremely helpful and enthusiastic team’ by the Per Una staff- something that we provide to every client.
