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.

Promenading our new LED


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.

Barco HDX-W20 Flex – 20,000 Lumen HD Projectors available for hire.

New rental Stock – Full WUXGA Resolution 20,000 Lumen Projection

HDX W20 Projector available for hire from Production AV Ltd

Production AV is happy to announce a significant investment into the Barco HDX Projection platform in the shape of the flag ship HDX-W20 Flex product, and TLD+ lenses suite.

Available from the 24th of August, Production AV will be stocking these units, along with the Barco TLD+ high brightness lenses , as well as new PDS901 3G switchers.


Designed for the Road

The HDX series has been designed for rental companies, by rental companies. Based on Xenon Lamp and DLP technology, the HDX W20 Flex offers up to 20,000 lumens of light output with the ‘Light On Demand’ function, but also the ability to be dimmed in 2000 lumen increments, giving unrivalled flexibility. Unsurpassed onboard processing gives great 3D signal handling, onboard Warp and image manipulation, with a built in preview screen enabling verification of the signal path without having to power up the projector.

With the available brightness and rugged nature of the HDX platform, these projectors are ideally suited to large scale projection mapping requirements, and high fidelity corporate presentations. The Xenon light source also gives great colour rendition, ensuring that these projectors will display film content as the director intended.

The units also feature BarcoLink technology, that enables the transmission of WUXGA signals (1920×1200 @ 50/59.6/60Hz) over a single Coaxial cable up to 100 metres. This can greatly simplify setup and also reduce cost, as there is no longer a need for the use of fibre systems over longer distances.

Barco HDX inputs

With the additional WiFi and GSM Mobile options fitted to our units, we have the ability to wirelessly control the projector, and also make adjustments to the units settings without needing to be present with the units – including remote brightness level adjustments over the cell phone network.

Weighing only 50Kg, drawing 12A approximately, and having low noise fans, mean these projectors are equally at home in corporate events of rock and roll touring scenarios.

Flexible Rental Options

Production AV will be offering the HDX at all brightness levels – 10,000, 12,000, 14,000, 16,000, 18,000 and 20,000 lumens to suit your requirements for both brightness and budget. The units come with 3G HD-SDI inputs and a universal input via a DVI connector. Should it be required, other input cards can be supplied.

We will also be supplying the units with a single point rigging bracket and standard Barco 4 point rigging hardware.
