Live production company L3 Productions (www.L3Productions.com) was hired by a corporate client to build a themed night club environment for a large holiday party for 1,400 people and turned to Elation Professional lighting and video products to fulfill the brief, including Elation’s new EMAG4 LED panel for graphics, playback and live video.
Held in December at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, California, L3 Productions handled the entire creative production for the event including CAD, decor, lighting design, stage design, audio, video, DJ stage build and live broadcast.
The room’s lack of space did not allow for rear or front projection, which also would have required moving equipment, so L3 placed three EMAG4 screens over the stage for optimal viewing anywhere in the room. According to L3 Productions CEO Laine Rinker, although the client was worried that the video might not be bright enough, at 1,200 Nits the EMAG4 had plenty of visual punch.
Eighty-four EMAG4 panels were mounted above the stage and used for live video, playback, and visuals for the DJ. Optimized for high-pace setup and tear down like on-the-road productions, exhibitions and corporate AV, the 4.8mm pixel pitch EMAG4 features outstanding image quality (43,264 pixels/m²) and includes features like tool-less quick locks and a service-friendly magnetic LED module design that make the panels easy to install and disassemble. Elation EPV VSC’s were used for video control with media delivered using Arkaos Media Master Express.
Night club lighting effects came courtesy of Elation Rayzor Series and LED Par wash lights. Spread across the stage and mounted in a dance floor truss were Elation Rayzor Q7 quad-color LED lights with Rayzor Beam 2R moving heads providing the eye-catching narrow beam looks. Adding color from various positions in the room were Elation Opti Quad Par lights.
