The AV Awards 2013 Shortlist has been announced! Feltech are once again standing out in the field of AV Systems Integrators with their JCB Presentation Theatre project. Shortlisted in the Business Installation of the Year category, the winners are due to be announced on October 11th at the Hilton on Park Lane.
JCB have had a presentation theatre for many years, however many of their systems had become obsolete and sporadic updates of single elements through the years had led to a mismatched and counter intuitive system with many flaws. JCB as a whole is very focused on the environmental impact of its product and operations and previous systems were particularly inefficient and energy-hungry.
The objective of the Theatre upgrade was to create a broadcast quality system that could form the heart of the JCB communications operation. The theatre delivers an intelligent workflow and a robust platform for the team to produce events, reveals, outside broadcasts and films in a wide variety of languages with professional results, whilst reducing the carbon footprint of the venue.
Chosen for their proven track record in high profile broadcast event installations Feltech pride themselves on attention to detail, high standards and a genuine passion to produce outstanding work for their clients.
A key consideration for JCB’s Theatre upgrade focused on the need to address environmental targets within the lighting scheme.
A new modular rigging structure was created to support multiple intelligent light installations, with ECO LED Intelligent moving head light and colour wash fixtures for the stage area and ECO LED Chroma Pixel Strips for side wall effects. These changes have reduced the power consumption of the facility by 60%, one of the major goals of the upgrade.
Strobe lighting, laser scanners, hazers and fog machines to boost lighting and laser effects were specified to enhance the stage shows, alongside a white cyclorama at the rear of stage for virtual backdrop projection.
Feltech specified lighting consoles from Avolites, incorporating touch control with hardware faders, and DMX distribution around the stage area and auditorium.
Feltech commissioned Lighting Designer Justin Adams and specialists Stage Electrics to create the impressive low energy lighting systems for the Theatre.
