The 1st UK stock of the new ProLights OmegaPIX next-generation LED video screen has gone straight to Lincoln-based event production company, Peachy Events Services for use on a diverse range of client applications ranging from corporate events to outdoor music festivals.
Peachy Events’ team of highly experienced production specialists deliver custom lighting, staging, live sound and digital video creative solutions for live music events, shows and conferences in the entertainment, education and commercial sectors.
To keep pace with the latest advances in LED video wall systems, Peachy Events were looking to upgrade to a higher resolution screen in the popular 3.9mm pitch specification. It was important that the chosen solution’s price point and advanced feature set could provide them with a good rental return on investment.
After hearing about the popular ProLights AlphaPIX range, Peachy Events approached the brand’s UK-exclusive dealer, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET). Stuart Burdett, Video Sales Manager for the company’s specialist video division, recommended the next generation ProLights OmegaPIX range.
Building on the AlphaPIX screen’s already impressive performance, the OmegaPIX panels run NovaStar’s latest high end A8 receiving cards and have 18 bit+ ClearView technology. Users also benefit from increased creative flexibility, with convex and concave mounting plates enabling screens to be configured with curves, along with 90 degree corners. In addition, the range includes an IP65 rated 3.9mm pitch model suitable for use on temporary outdoor events.
AC-ET’s video division supplied an 8 square meter video wall system featuring 32 separate 50 cm square, 3.9mm pitch ProLights OmegaPIX LED panels, plus the associated Novastar control boxes, data and power cabling, mounting hardware and flight cases.
Stuart commented: “Over the past few years, ProLights have gained a reputation for producing exceptional value video screen solutions. With the new OmegaPix series’ next generation performance and increased creative flexibility, we expect it to further establish the brand as a key player in the market – helping users to get maximum value without having to compromise on performance.”
Peachy Events’ Director, Dave Broughton commented: “We are delighted to be the first UK event production company to adopt the ProLights’ OmegaPIX LED screen. With the festivals season only a few months away, we expect it to be in high demand for outdoor live events as well as indoor use. The 3.9mm pixel pitch and fantastic screen resolution means content will look super sharp even close-up to stage, and its fast and easy deployment will save us valuable production time. The advice and support from A.C.’s video team has been fantastic – we’re really pleased that they recommended the OmegaPIX to us!”
