London Creator Awards 2017 LED Screen Solution Banner

Production AV were delighted for the chance to work alongside friends and long time clients LiteUp Events to provide the LED screen solution for the London Creator Awards 2017 hosted in Battersea Evolution. With WeWork committing more than $20 million to innovative projects and the people behind them, we were looking forward to see who would be granted the chance to take their big ideas and innovative projects to the next level.

Our task was to provide the screens for the event and that consisted of three LED screens and two 95″ screens on parabella stands. Using our DigiLED 3.9mm Indoor LED Panels the 5.5m x 3m centrepiece screen was constructed and flown from the rear truss. The main screen was flanked on either side by two 4.5m x 2.5m screen also flown and built out of the 3.9mm LED Panels. Data was fed to the screens using six DigiLED LED Navigator Screen Controllers with three of the navigators acting as a failsafe hot backup to the main processors. The screen management system was a Barco E2 4K Screen Management System which scaled the data to our screens and was provided by the client. Our final job was to provide the two 95″ screens on stands at the other end of the room that would provide coverage of the event for people in the networking and bar area. Signal was provided to the screens using CAT5e that was run from backstage control into the roof of the venue and then dropped back down at the 95″ screens.

The event was a massive success with inspiring and knowledge packed master classes on mentorship and creativity, followed by the the hosts Reggie Yates and Carly Wilford announcing the winners. With UK creators walking away with over $1 million in awards that night, it was an incredibly exciting night to be apart of with so many boundary pushing ideas be given the backing they deserve. To top off the evening, DJ Annie Mac got the whole place to their feet dancing the remainder of the night away.

Fantastic LED Screen for Nutcracker On Ice

Production AV supplied the Nutcracker on Ice in the Royal Albert Hall with a Desay 6.25mm LED Wall.

The festive spectacular jointly promoted by the Royal Albert Hall and Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, welcomed the Imperial Ice Stars to the rink, chose a spectacular 13.6m x 5.4m 6mm pitch screen as a centre piece for the performances provided by SFL group members, Production AV.

High Resolution 6mm LED Screen

As part of the SFL Group, Production AV supplied the screen to the Royal Albert Hall for the run of performances over the festive period. A tight build schedule required that the screen build dovetail with the construction of the 4000sqft Ice rink and setting up for the orchestra. This was achieved to deliver the ground supported screen within the required schedules and with no issues. With the screen boasting over 1.8Million LED pixels, the content was fed to the screens over Lightware Modex fibre optic systems, and switched by a Barco E2 system. The tightly scripted show content was run from Apple MacPro machines running QLab, all equipment supplied from the SFL Group inventory.

Our thanks go to Mike Kane who looked after the screen for the successful run of shows.
