Warwick Arts Centre – CCSG Awards 2016

6mm LED Screen - CCSG Awards Warwick

Production AV were excited to have the opportunity to provide an LED screen solution to first time clients, Warwick Arts Centre for their Campus and Commercial Services Group Awards night. It was a privilege to be chosen to enhance the visual impact of a night for recognising the contributions the CCSG make to the student, staff and visitor community and in enabling the University to achieve all that it does.

6mm LED Screen Awards Ceremony Solution

6mm LED Screen - CCSG Awards Warwick

Using our stock of Desay 6.25mm LED Panels, Production AV created a 4.8m x 2.7m centre screen which was flanked on either side by two 3.2m x 1.8m screens. The screens were flown on individual truss supports and used the Desay rigging bars and screws along with 1.5m soft steels and 3.25t bow shackles to balance and hang them safely. Using two Nova MCTRL660 Processors, meant we were able to have the centre screen as it’s own entity and could easily adjust the individual brightness settings to the clients request.

All content was fed to the screens using two Barco ImagePro II Dual’s that were conveniently placed out of the way back stage. All switching and mixing was done using the in-house hardware. All equipment was rigged on the morning of the show with rehearsals in the afternoon and the event in the evening. The screen worked flawlessly throughout the day and we were able to swiftly derig it at the end of the night.

Many thanks again to Warwick Arts Centre for inviting us to be apart of this special night and we look forward to working alongside your team in the future.
