175 FLEXCurve LED video screens create a custom stage layout at the K-LOVE Fan Awards
Nashville, 7/30/2015 – Go Live Productions is a complete turnkey concert and event production company that enjoys the challenge of creating a unique live experience for each of their clients. As the longtime production company behind the annual K-LOVE Fan Awards, their desire to make each show unique is often put to the test. When preparing for the 2015 awards ceremony, Production Manager Scott Moore created a custom LED video display that needed a truly unique solution, which he found by using 175 PixelFLEX FLEXCurve LED video screens.
“At the 2015 K-LOVE Fan Awards we really expanded our video components and actually used the LED screens to create a series of presenting and performances spaces,” began Moore. “Going into pre-production we knew that the artists would be excited about this therefore we requested they send us their custom content ahead of time. With only two exceptions, every artist had custom video content so our lighting designer Tony Fransen had a lot of work to do integrating the video elements and the end results using the FLEXCurve video screens were phenomenal.”
The PixelFLEX FLEXCurve breaks all barriers in the rigid tile category through an innovative dual wing curving LED tile. With an 8mm – 12mm pitch that is designed for both indoor and outdoor applications, the FLEXCurve is available to meet the needs of those looking for high definition LED displays while still maintaining the unique flexible characteristics PixelFLEX LED video screens.
Moore explained further, “To break up the Grand Ole Opry stage and provide us with multiple playing areas, the FLEXCurve LED screens had multiple hang positions. We had one large 22.5’ x 12.5’ playback surface that hung upstage center. There were two L-shaped walls that split the stage into separate performance areas that each measured 27.5’ x 7.5’ going stage right to left, and then 17.5’ x 7.5’ running upstage to downstage. Next, we placed a 27.5’ x 5’ wall behind both of the two performances spaces; and lastly, we had a 5’ x 7.5’ wall that acted as a backdrop for the center stage presenters. With so many custom shapes, we had to have LED screens that could quickly and easily connect together, and that’s what we got with the FLEXCurve.”
The PixelFLEX FLEXCurve quick-lock system makes panel connection fast and secure through a simple 3-step process: align, lift, click and lock. Designed with greater rigging flexibility for the rental and touring industry in mind, FLEXCurve LED video screens feature easy top-mounting, “Rig and Click” vertical interconnect, hassle-free alignment, plus quick horizontal interconnect and curve setup.
“As we prepared for the production, we invited the artist designers to come in and sit with us in a 3D presentation suite because we would have no time to program onsite,” continued Moore. “This process is essential to the overall success of the show and since a lot the artists created content specific to the custom surfaces, we asked AJ Morgan from PixelFLEX to come in and help us out. His skills at mapping video and being able to cue a show with multiple inputs to multiple outputs are phenomenal. When he is around it’s a great confidence boost and I’m never concerned because you know the video will be integrated correctly and will look great.”
With the production now complete, Moore is quick to recognize that it’s both the innovative design and the team behind the product that truly makes the FLEXCurve LED video screens a desirable solution.
“I really love the ability of the FLEXCurve LED screens to create elegant curved surfaces,” he concluded. “The method they have of being able to achieve custom angles on the panels is pretty fantastic. I’ve worked with PixelFLEX before and I have found that the dependability of both their products and their technicians is second to none. When we are in a situation where load-in time and onsite adjustments are not a luxury we are afforded, these characteristics are a major advantage.”
