Through a focus on bringing together the right team with the right technology, Los Angeles-based Jargon Entertainment has been setting the highest standards for a dynamic on-camera experience for over 20 years. Having worked on many high-profile film and television productions around the world, their design team is always seeking to implement the most creative technology solutions possible. As the implementation of LED video has begun to increase in their production environments, Jargon Entertainment recently made the decision to invest in a new inventory of durable and high-resolution FLEXUltra XT LED from Nashville-based PixelFLEX™.
“We have been involved with creating production designs for television and movie sets for a while now, but we have always sub-rented the LED video in our projects,” began Lucas Solomon, President, Jargon Entertainment. “Deciding that it was now time to handle this in-house, we did a bit of online research and began contacting potential manufacturers. After speaking with the team at PixelFLEX LED, I felt very comfortable with them and they were extremely helpful throughout the entire process.”
While researching the available LED video solutions and providers, Solomon had a clear focus on the precise technology needed. Knowing that a tight pixel pitch and dependability would be key to the success of their purchase, he was excited to find both with PixelFLEX LED.
“I was looking for a technology with very high-resolution capabilities, somewhere around the 1.8-1.9mm pixel pitch range,” explained Solomon. “Most other manufacturers could only hit the 2.8mm range, but we needed something with a more high-definition output that really looked nice. As PixelFLEX began showing me their FLEXUltra XT technology, they also showed me their new protective coating technology that would provide the added benefit of durability to our LED video screen, and it worked out great.”
With no time to waste, the new Jargon Entertainment inventory of FLEXUltra XT would be immediately put to the test. Shipped directly onsite to Pebble Beach, California, the new technology had to be ready to create a memorable experience for guests of Cisco on the 18th green.
“To start, the FLEXUltra XT LED video was going straight into a very high-profile event we were doing at the 2019 US Open Championship,” added Solomon. “We were hired by Octagon to implement an LED video screen into the Cisco sponsor tent, which would then be used for corporate branding and live streaming content from the network trucks as well. They would be using their Cisco-vision system to push the different content to the wall through a 4K 60Hz signal, and PixelFLEX was very helpful in making sure that everything implemented perfectly.”
Ready to deploy the FLEXUltra XT technology even further, Solomon is confident that its usage will reach into many different aspects of production design. Originally purchased for its television and film capabilities, Jargon Entertainment has already seen its creative potential come to life on set.
“Moving forward, I see us being able to deploy the technology into many more designs for live events, television and film,” admitted Solomon. “On one of the television productions we work on, we recently used it for the background in a balcony set-up, in place of a duratrans or green screen, showing a high-resolution image of Los Angeles that looked beautiful. There are simply so many different things you can do with it.”
Having now learned a great deal about the intricacies of LED video technology, Solomon understands the value gained through the decision to work with the team at PixelFLEX. Continuing to build on the philosophy of pairing the right team with the right technology, he is appreciative for their customer support provided along the way.
“I really enjoyed working with everyone at PixelFLEX LED because of their willingness to make sure you have exactly what you need for your project to be a success,” concluded Solomon. “Going into the initial process, I wasn’t the most knowledgeable on LED video and its deployment capabilities, but PixelFLEX really took care of us every step of the way and did a phenomenal job.”
