“Queenstown is a unique place for event production with limited venue capacity and almost never in purpose build spaces, so we are mindful that what we invest in has to be flexible and serve different situations, spaces and event types,” explains Hamish Roberge, MD of TomTom Productions. “What we needed was a product which we could use outdoors but also had a fine enough pitch to use indoors.”
The important part of the purchase was a comprehensive range of accessories for the screen, tuning up the flexibility factor for the LED displays to be flown, ground stacked or creatively configured. The mix of full size and half size cabinets was chosen, all with an excellent brightness of over 5,000 nits, making sure the screen delivers superb visuals at any time of the day, even under direct sun.
“We went with the NovaStar A8s receiver cards in the panels, which are the higher spec & have a lower latency which is particularly important for live camera applications,” comments Hamish.
