Production AV were delighted to be working again with long time client LiteUp Events, providing a complete video solution at the Camden Roundhouse. The event was for charity Future Dreams – its first Gala Dinner that brought together over 600 guests from the world of property, banking and media with the aim of raising vital funds for breast cancer support to open London’s only breast cancer support centre in partnership with Breast Cancer Haven. With the event being sponsored by the likes of L’Oreal, Production AV were excited to be involved in such an important and high profile event in support of such a noble cause.

Complete Barco Projection and Video Solution for Gala Dinner

Future Dreams Gala Dinner ProjectionThe leading part of the video solution provided were four Barco HDX W16 Flex Projectors that were flown from truss in the roof of the venue. With the the venue shaped in a circle and delegates spread out at tables across the room, each of the four projectors enabled engagement from all angles in the event space. Cabling was run up to the wire grid that stretches across the room and back down to control that was positioned on a balcony above the main space.

Two Sony PMW-EX3 HD Video Cameras were operated by Production AV crew to capture the stunning dance performance by the New English Ballet Theatre that took place on a stage in the centre of the venue. MicroCue Kits were also provided to assist the numerous speakers throughout the evening.  A Panasonic AV-HS400 Vision Mixer was used to smoothly run the show throughout the night and our collection of Blackmagic monitors enabled the production team the freedom to make sure the event was at it’s up most in production quality.

Camden Roundhouse – Buddy’s Bar Mitzvah


Production AV were happy to provide an LED screen solution to long term clients LiteUp Events working on behalf of Ruby J Events. Supplying the focal point for one of the most memorable nights of Buddy’s life was a special moment and we felt privileged to be apart of the team creating that experience for him and his family and friends.

6mm LED Screen - Buddy's Bar Mitzvah

Once again, our stock of Desay 6.25mm LED Panels were used to create a 6.4m x 3.6m screen that provided a centre piece for the nights events. The screen was flown using truss and the Desay rigging bars and screws along with 1.5m soft steels and 3.25t bow shackles to balance and hang it safely. 1.5m drift wire was also used to lower the screen to prevent the screen obstructing moving lights. Two Nova MCTRL660 Processors were used to manage the screen with one being set up to act as a backup to the main processor.

Content was fed to the screen using a Barco ImagePro II Dual that was placed backstage with control. Using a single SDI cable, we connected the ImagePro to the lighting designers Hippotizer V4: Karst which gave him the ability to add effects to the the screen content to match the changes he made with the lighting throughout the show. This enabled the designer to seamlessly control all the visual display which heightened the production value.

Included in the entertainment for the evening were an array of singers and musicians as well as a DJ. Production AV supplied the Sony PMW-EX3 HD Video Camera which was used to film the artists on the stage as well as well as interact with the crowd so they could enjoy seeing themselves on the big screen. The screen was loaded in on the morning of the event and was put up with quickly and with ease allowing other parts of the event production to be completed faster. The screen worked perfectly throughout the entirety of the show and was derigged the night the event ended.

Our thanks to LiteUp Events for choosing us to be the LED supplier and for Ruby J Events for organising the event.
