Liz Hobbs Group Invests in LED Video Wall System from A.C. Entertainment Technologies for Summer of 2017

14th June 2017

UK - Liz Hobbs Group, one of the leading promoters and producers of concerts and events in the UK, has invested in a complete LED video wall system from the video division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET). Liz Hobbs, who are promoting and producing tours and concerts by Tom Jones, Little Mix, Olly Murs, Craig David and Shane Filan this summer, started using the system at the first gig of the UB40 tour, which opened at Inverness‘s Northern Meeting Park in late May.

The 33 square metre, IP65 rated ProLights AlphaPIX6T LED wall consists of 72 panels and was supplied with a full range of rigging, networking, control and ancillary equipment. It will provide the main stage backdrop for many of the shows this summer.

In addition to the LED wall itself, AC-ET supplied video transmission equipment including, Luminex GigaCore data switches, tvONE video switcher / scalers, Blackmagic smart Videohub and SDI / HDMI converters as well as the rack mounts to carry this equipment. Cables included both ArmourLux fibre and conventional video cables.

Rupert Doogan-Hobbs – Production and Operations Director said, “We’ve got a really exciting and busy summer that’s taken a huge amount of planning and co-ordination - being able to rely on AC-ET to supply the whole system has been a bonus. Grant and Stuart from AC-ET have been great in helping us identify everything we needed for the system, not just the specialist video equipment – the wall itself, control and cabling - but also rigging accessories, hoists, flight cases and even the drapes and drape supports we needed around the wall. The service, support and lead times have been excellent. ”

Stuart Burdett, AC-ET’s video sales manager said, “This has been a great project for us, by being able to call on the specialist knowledge across so many product disciplines within AC-ET, we’ve been able to supply a complete package. ProLights AlphaPIX LED walls are already becoming established as a great product and this is further evidence of the quality and the value that they offer. We’re delighted to work with Liz Hobbs and have no doubt their summer tours and concerts will be a great success.”
