“Our screens were tested against other manufactures and out performed on refresh
rates and rigging ability” – Nathan Wright
The various types of VuePix screens were invited to undergo a series of performance tests and were compared against all major LED screen brands on the market, proving themselves as a preferred choice for the application. “Our screens were tested against other manufactures and out performed on refresh rates and rigging ability”, explains Nathan Wright, Digital Technology Product Manager at ULA Group. “We used a combination of indoor and outdoor panels for this project.
For the nightclub, it was all our ER4 series screens for the main and side walls, our QE outdoor series was used on the front of the DJ Booth to allow for accidental spills and easy cleaning. This was also the case for the beach club DJ Box. The side screens for the beach club used our SL series, due to weight constraints, these were chosen as they were only 8kg per cabinet”.
The Cove Nightclub set comprises of a massive 8 meter wide and 10 meter tall VuePix ER 4.8 screen, being the centre piece of the stage behind the DJ console, with 4 side screens (3 meters high x 7 meters tall each), two on each side, to compliment the set. The VuePix QE4.6 IP rated screen was installed in front of the DJ console of the club. The whole set is run by two ArKaos Stadium Servers running the latest version of MediaMaster software and RGB Link X2 with 12 outputs for the visual control.
The beach club area features a set of 3 screens, with the main one being 7 meters wide and 2 meters tall on a ground support. The two side screens, each measuring 3 meters wide and 6 meters tall, were hung and dressed as a theatre set of the glass dome. All beach club screens are VuePix SL6 technology, modified to feature grey face LEDs to offer increased contrast ratio while still maintaining high brightness for daylight use. VuePix QE4.6 IP rated panels were again used to compliment the DJ booth of the beach club. The ArKaos Stadium Servers and RGB Link X2 (with 8 outputs) are once more being used in the area for visual control.
