The Royal British Legion – Remembrance LED Screen Installation

Remembrance LED Screen Banner

Production AV were feeling excited and privileged to be supplying LED screens for an event of real importance. Working on behalf of LiteUp Events we were providing the Royal British Legion with a Remembrance focused screen installation featuring four videos of young veterans’ experiences in St Paul’s Square, London.

One of the aims for the Royal Legion in this years Remembrance was to encourage people to “rethink Remembrance” as it is believed that younger veterans are often forgotten about and struggle to recover from the experiences they’ve faced during their time serving.  Within the video content, World War Two veterans read out, intensely emotional and hard to bear stories only to reveal they were not their own, but belonged to the four veterans featured in the rest of the piece. The Royal Legion were trying to “challenge common perceptions” and Production AV were very proud to play our part in making that happen.

Using our stock of Desay 6.25mm Indoor/Outdoor LED Panels, we created a unique LED display making five individual columns, each two modules wide varying in height from 2 metres to 4 metres. The intended effect was for each column to display it’s own separate visual content but also come together as a collective unit and display these intricate and eye catching displays that did a really good job at piquing the interest of the crowds of people passing through the square.

Content was run using  PlaybackPro Plus on an Apple Macbook Pro, which then was sent to the individual LED columns using our industry standard Barco ImagePRO II Dual which was well within it’s capabilities to scale the data being fed to each screen. Two Nova MCTRL660 Processors were also used to manage the screen with one being set up to act as a redundant hot backup to the main processor, along with a main and backup cable path.

As the screens were being put into a raised set, we were not using our standard ground support and provided a safe alternative solution using scaffold tubing of various lengths for the different size screens and created a secure supporting structure behind the screens which clamped onto the screen itself. Despite the square being fairly open to wind flow, the screens had no issues for the three days they were in use.

We would like to thank the four veterans: Anna Pollard, Ben Poku, Sam Jack and Stewart Harris for sharing their stories and for their service in protecting this country. We’d like to thank the Royal British Legion for their sustained and determined effort to continue providing support for our veterans no matter what generation they are from. Finally we’d like to thank LiteUp Events for choosing us to provide the video solution. We hope next Remembrance we can again provide our services to help illustrate the great work the Royal British Legion are doing.
