Olympia London – Feel Korea Concert 2017

Feel Korea LED Screens 2017 Concert Banner

Production AV were delighted to working on behalf of SFL by supplying the LED screen solution for the Feel Korea 2017 concert. Earlier on during the day, the Korean Cultural Centre hosted the London Korean Festival 2017. However, for the evening, Feel Korea returned to Olympia London to host the evening concert. With KPOP blasting through SFL’s PA and the crowds cheering for their favourite artists as they appeared on our screens before the show, our onsite technician Sam McCrea realised he was about to experience one of the most vibrant, outlandish performances he’d have ever witnessed.

Feel Korea 2017 LED Screen Solution 2

For this event, both our DigiLED 3.9mm Indoor LED Panels and our Desay 6.25mm Indoor/Outdoor LED Panels were used to create the video backdrop on stage as well as an elevated screen that relayed the live camera shots throughout the show. The stage backdrop was formed using a mixture of SFL’s and Production AV’s stock of Desay 6.25mm Panels to create a 12.8m x 4.5m screen as the centrepiece of the display which was flanked either side by three 1m x 4.5m columns of LED. This layout enabled clever video design to utilized the separate columns as their own entities to deliver more impressive visuals than a single screen of that size could achieve.In addition to this, 84 modules of DigiLED 3.9mm were connected to form a screen and were flown high above the stage to display the camera feeds.

For the 6.25mm screens, four Nova MCTRL660 Processors were used to manage the data being fed to the screen with two acting as a fail safe hot back up to the main processors. For the 3.9mm screen, two DigiLED Navigator LED Controllers the equivalent processors of the Novastars were used to fed data to the screen employing the same failsafe hot backup system. Whilst SFL supplied their own Barco E2 4K Screen Management System to drive the show, our Barco EC50 Event Controller was provided to increase the simplicity and flexibility of the E2 system.

With the last act finishing on stage, the exuberant crowd were further roused by an encore from all the main acts sporting ‘Feel Korea’ t-shirts as they came out on stage for a final hurrah! With inflated balls thrown around the crowd and confetti cannons shot from the bottom of the stage it created a beautiful end to the show. We would like to thank SFL for selecting us as the LED screen supplier for this event and we look forward to working on many more projects with you in the future!

Move It 2017 LED Screen Banner

Production AV were back out once again this time to ExCeL London providing the LED screen for London Studio Centre’s exhibition stand at the Move It 2017 Dance Show. With over 24,000 dancers attending the three day event, Production AV were excited to be providing the video solution for one of the biggest dance studios in the country. The aim of Move It is to celebrate all forms of dance and performing arts and with several performance stages, workshops, stalls and dance programmes our onsite LED technician Sam McCrea certainly had plenty to do!

High Resolution 3.9mm Exhibition LED Screen Solution

LSC Move It 2017 LED Screen 1

Using our high resolution digiLED Indoor 3.9mm LED Panels, we provided a 5.5m x 3m LED Screen that was built on our LED ground support system mounted on a Litedeck stage. As well as providing the screen, playback and lighting solutions were also catered for. The kit was loaded in the day before the event and the screen went up quickly – under 4 hours from loading in to completion. A pair of Nova MCTRL660 Processors were used to manage the data being fed to the screen with one acting as a fail safe hot back up to the main processor with a redundant cable route. Scaling for the screen was handled through the Barco ImagePRO II Dual which had no trouble showing LSC’s promotional videos and other media content that was being cued and ran through our Apple Macbook Pro and PlaybackPro software. Four Source 4 Junior Profiles were positioned above the screen on a discreet truss structure and provided a fixed lighting state so members of the dance community had a space in the exhibition to learn what London Studio Centre was all about.

The event was a massive success, with LSC able to use the LED screen to reveal all the amazing talented they have curated in their studio in the most eye catching way possible. We’d like to thank London Studio Centre for choosing us to provide the video and lighting solution for your exhibition and we hope to back working with you for Move It 2018 to show another great year of dance and performing arts.

Travelling over with the kit to Belfast the day before, the Production AV team were began the load in early next morning and had the screen built into it’s custom set and operational in three hours. A pair of Nova MCTRL660 Processors were used to manage the data being fed to the screen with one acting as a fail safe back up to the main processor. For playback, our Barco S3-4k Screen Management System along with it’s counterpart the Barco EC50 Event Controller ensured that we could output a range of feeds including Keynote presentations, camera feeds and a twitter stream to the LED screen which provided flawless motion to the conference and allowed the UUP to focus completely on laying out plans to do what’s right for Northern Ireland in 2017 and onwards.

The event was a great success and we really enjoyed working alongside BNL to make sure this important event had the best production quality possible. Thank you for selecting us to be the supplier of the video solution we really enjoyed working with your team and the UUP Party itself. We hope to be back for next years party conference to hear the exciting changes the UUP have and aim to instrument in Northern Ireland.

These screens were used to showcase content that expressed the evolution of Superdry’s aspirational design story, offering essential items for everyday fitness as well as capsule collections for Athleisure, Yoga, Gym, Running and Cycle.

Positioned to capture the catwalk was a Sony PMW-EX3 Video Camera which fed live video to a Samsung ME65B 65″ Flat Panel Display which the models used as reference for their cues throughout the show. Playback of Powerpoints and keynotes were also displayed on screen for numerous talks by members of the Superdry team and brand ambassadors. All content was managed and switched by pairing the Barco EC-50 Event Controller with the Barco S3-4K Screen Management System which functioned flawlessly throughout the event.

Again we’d like to thank Tarren Production Ltd and Superdry for choosing us to provide the screen and video management for this event. We look forward to working on more successful events in the future.

 

Ecclesiastical Group Leadership Conference 2016

The Ecclesiastical Leadership Conference 2016 supplied and ran by Production AV

Production AV were pleased to once again be chosen as the sole supplier to Ecclesiastical’s annual Group Leadership Conference. With previous years conference’s utilising a simple screen and projector with drape surround, the decision was taken to undertake a massive step up in the visual impact of the event and enhance the narrative of the numerous speakers throughout the day.

3.9mm LED Video Wall Conference Solution

Using our stock of DigiLED 3.9mm LED Panels, Production AV created a 7m x 2.5m LED Video Wall as the focal point of the conference. The 3.9mm LED Wall sat on it’s own ground support; raising it above the presenters stage for improved viewing. Throughout the event it worked seamlessly for numerous speakers with their own unique content requirements. The high brightness of the screen meant that the room could be well lit and the curtains remain open allowing the views out over the lakes to remain and be enjoyed by the delegates.

Using Keynote and Powerpoint, content was fed from various laptops provided by Production AV. Live video was also run directly onto screen coming from a Sony EX3 HD Video Camera positioned at stage right. All the source switching was handled by a Barco S3-4K switching system set up backstage with the Barco EC-50 controller allowing for easy recall of previously stored scenes.

Relay Flatscreens and Breakout Rooms

Alongside the large 3.9mm LED video screen, two pairs of Samsung 65″ Flat Panels were provided to ensure the delegates could clearly see the content in the long thin room. The four screens were set out on Unicol Parabella Stands along the length of the room in order to stop any loss of clarity for those sat further back.

In addition to the main session space, multiple breakout spaces were also provided with a mix of 50″ and 42″ Panasonic Plasma Screens to enable clear communications.

Sound and Lighting for Complete Conference Solution

As Production AV were providing the full conference solution, audio requirements were also covered in full. Sound was projected using a combination d&b E3 and QSub Loudspeakers driven by d&b D12 Amplifers. All the sources were mixed on the QU-32 Digital Mixer utilising the onboard dynamics and feeds to the various speaker sends. Sennheiser EW300 G3 Wireless Handheld and Lapel microphones were provided for the presenters during the day and also during the evening quiz. ETC Source 4 Junior Lanterns and Miltec LED Batten 2’s were also used to great effect throughout the event in creating the relaxed atmosphere aimed to be achieved throughout the conference.

All the equipment was rigged during the load in on the afternoon before the event, with a fairly typical schedule of rehearsals in the morning then moving through the conference sessions and into the evening dinner and quiz, to a post event load out handled by our experienced team of event professionals and led by our in house project manager.

A big thank you to Ecclesiastical for choosing to work with us on the show and we look forward to working together in the future.

Promenading our new LED

BBC-Proms-Banner

DigiLED 3.9mm LED Screen Investment

The BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall was the first outing for our new 3.9mm pixel pitch, digiLED HRi3900 LED screen where it took pride of place, flown as the central 7m x 3m screen.

Integrated Team Work

The scale of the venue, and required location of the screen means that only the brightness and intensity of the LED will give the required hi-resolution images. Working as part of  SFL Group, Production AV supplied the LED screen delivered to site with technicians for the build and operation of the screen during the events.

SFL Group, who are the Royal Albert Halls’s preferred AV supplier, furnished the venue with four large projector screens powered by Barco HDX-W20 Flex 20k Lumen and Christie LHD 7k lumen projectors. The resulting quality of the images gave a cinematic quality that added to the ambience and ensured that the audience all had the best view in the house. Craig Lawrence, SFL’s Video & Projects Director, commented, “We were all blown away with the quality and performance of this new digiLED product.The fanless design, fantastic low brightness performance and great calibration make for a brilliant screen. ”

From flying to ground support, our new LED has been busy on corporate events as backdrop for awards ceremonies, as well as on television shows where it’s versatility has been utilised as 1m wide columns. Find out more about our LED Screens.
