Vuepix help turn on the Christmas lights

Posted on Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Clifton Productions Perth has recently been involved in the City of Perth’s ‘Turning on the Christmas Lights’ to celebrate the official beginning of the City of Perth’s Festival of Christmas.

The Lord Mayor of Perth, Model Megan Gale and ABC1’s host Elliot Spencer were just a few invited to celebrate the City of Perth’s ‘Enchantment of Christmas’ for children and their families.

Clifton Productions Perth has recently taken delivery of over 70 Vuepix P25 LED Screens. Managing Director Ed Matthews said “we chose to invest in Vuepix Screens for their light weight and affordability for our clients, as opposed to hiring an alternative more expensive High Resolution LED Display.”

The Vuepix screens were used to create a backdrop and as video displays. Ed states, ‘We initially planned to only run vision effects through the screen however the screens performed so well we decided to run the cameras live on the screen too.” Also used were 12 iLED x Colorbank 54’s around the truss’s arch to give the audience an engaging visual effect using RGB led.

Ed chose 12 x Robe 1200 ColorSpot EAT’s and 8 x Robe ColorWash 1200 EAT’s for their high output. ‘We tried to achieve the look of snow falling projecting on the Post Office Building utilising Christmas colours of red, green and blue. Robe’s are always impressive and we are always happy with their reliability.” said Ed.

Continuing Ed says, ‘We are entering in to our busiest time of year now. Since using Vuepix for the very first time at the City of Perth’s Turning on of the Christmas Lights – we have picked up another 2 jobs because Vuepix had everyone talking!”.
