Morgan Centenary Gala Dinner

2009 sees the 100th Anniversary of the Morgan Motor company, based in Malvern Link. Having produced classic motorcars for the past 100 years, it was felt that an event should be held to mark the occasion. Over the weekend of the 31st of july to 2nd of August, a series of events were held at Cheltenham racecourse to mark the Centenary.

Production:av was appointed as live video supplier for the Morgan Centenary Gala Dinner at the Centaur, part of the Cheltenham Racecourse complex.  Working on behalf of show producer, Richard Tierney, Production:av specified a full high-definition projection system to showcase video content and live camera feeds.  We installed two 16’x9′ projections screens in a V-formation above the stage to ensure adequate sightlines for the audience.  This was a key requirement, with the main show opener using video content coupled with a Morgan sportscar driving on to the stage amidst flashes of pyrotechnics.

Using our recent investment in additional Barco CLM-HD8 projectors, a pair of projectors for each screen provided HD images showcasing full HD camera work and video content with a bright and vivid 16,000 lumens per screen. Live cameras were directed by Production:av, switched via a Panasonic AV-HS400 mixer and fed to the Barco Screen Pro II switcher where VT playins and on site edits from Final Cut Edit Machines were also switched, before going to the screens as DVI signals over Fibre Optic.

The client was blown away with the results of using an HD video system helping to make this a memorable event for all involved and with an interest in Morgan Sportscars (1909-2009).

Production:av were pleased to work on behalf of Event and Management Services on this event.
