XL Video Makes Impact At CfaN Event in Orlando

XL Video Makes Impact At CfaN Event in Orlando

XL Video UK and US operation XL Video Inc. combined resources and expertise to provide LED screens, Catalyst control and crew, plus a dynamic high production value video design to impress followers of the Christ For All Nations (CfaN) Ministry for two shows staged in the Amway Centre in Orlando, Florida, USA.

CfaN is led by the high profile internationally known Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, renowned for his gospel missions throughout Africa. According to his website, Bonnke has personally preached to over 120 million people and led 72 million in the prayer to salvation.

XL Video UKs Project Manager Paul Macca McCauley was approached by CfaNs UK/US based Technical Production Manager Paul Boyo Manuel to provide something different and innovative in terms of video reinforcement for the shows and a system design developed in conjunction with TAIT that would not only WOW the crowds, but that enabled a 360 degree production which gave every seat in the arena an excellent view.

The concept, designed by CfaNs Technical Director, Derek Murray, involved four large video cubes designed and built by TAIT together with the automation engineering - that were clad with a total of 900 x Pixled F11 tiles.

These were flown above each corner of the stage and used individually for presenting IMAG footage of the stage action together with pre-recorded playback content.

The event comprised two services attracting 20,000 people over 2 nights. At one seminal moment during each of the services staged in the round with audience and choir behind the stage the inner fascias of the four cubes hinged open to join together, forming a seamless new large rectangular flown video structure. This transition was designed by Paul Boyo Manuel, and was used to showcase CfaNs footage of their huge mission crowds in Africa.

When this section of the service was complete, the cubes glided back to their original four corner home positions ¦ leaving the crowds breathless with excitement and awe!

The content played out on the screens was special VT footage stored, programmed and managed / output via the Catalyst system, and this was also synched and re-sized so it could  continue playing whilst the cubes were moving into their different positions.

XL also supplied 165 tiles of Pixled F30 LED for a more conventionally positioned onstage screen at the back of the performance area. This was used for messaging and some ambient footage throughout the performances, which included key inspirational speakers and several bands.

Feeds from five cameras dotted around the venue were also taken into the Catalyst and output to the F-11 in its small and large cube form.

Comfort monitors were installed into the venues VIP areas and screens and live feeds supplied for a team of interpreters who were stationed in the VIP boxes to aid the simultaneous translation of the services  into four languages.

The Catalysts were triggered from a grandMA2 light console which was also controlling all the events lighting.

Macca worked with a team of four technicians from the UK and XL Video Inc. Project Manager Dave Hyslop. All the equipment came out of XL Video Inc., and they had a two day build period to get everything up and running.

He comments, It was a challenging brief which led us to a unique LED setup that wouldnt look out of place on a large concert for a high profile artist ¦ which was exactly what the team at CfaN wanted. CfaN has high production values and we helped them deliver a high-impact design to help convey their message to all in attendance.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
