XL Video, working for producers EventPM Ltd, supplied the LED screen and camera system for the festival. The 15 square metre LED screen needed to be suitable for outdoor use and possible inclement weather and be lightweight for rigging from a small truss. For this purpose XLs Project Manager, Mark Rooney, specified a Pixled FX-11 LED. The screens on the main stage showed a combination of pre-recorded content and IMAG footage from XLs camera system. www.xlvideo.tv
