Established for 20 years, Visual Elements provides award-winning wet and dry hire solutions to music festivals, theatre shows and film premieres, as well as servicing London events venue, Tobacco Dock.
After deciding to set up a Video division alongside its existing production services, it approached AC-ET to help specify and supply a complete range of technologies from its portfolio of premier brands.
Video Technical Sales Executive, Chris Beardwell worked closely with Visual Elements’ Head of Video, Leon O’Neill to deliver a package which met all technical needs and maximised the available budget.
The order included Panasonic PT-RZ120 and 970 1-chip DLP laser projectors; over 60 Samsung UHD 4K TVs ranging from 40 to 82 inches; a Philips X-Line modular video wall; and a Roland V-1HD video switcher.
Related signal transmission products, cabling and accessories supplied included a B-Tech video wall stand, Unicol screen mounts and custom flight cases for all panels; Barco video switchers; Kramer HDMI distribution amplifiers; Blackmagic Design and Decimator HDMI/SDI converters; Interspace AV control; and over 1400 metres of Kramer fibre optic HDMI and Belden Neutrik BNC-BNC cabling.
Visual Elements received full delivery within four weeks of all 350 separate pieces of equipment.
Leon commented: “AC-ET has been fantastic. Chris’s product knowledge and advice ensured that we got everything we needed, on budget, and in a very quick turnaround. This enabled us to start using the equipment almost straight away, and having one supplier has saved us a lot of time and hassle.”
Visual Elements Director, Mike Townsend commented: “AC-ET has been our go-to supplier for many years. The convenience of using someone with a huge portfolio of technologies, combined with the ability to back it up with the necessary support, really adds value in our very time-pressured industry.”
