XL Events Supplies The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert
(UK) XL Events is proud to have been a major part of the highly prestigious Queen's Jubilee Concert.
Responding to a commission from the show’s Lighting Designer, Durham Marenghi, XL Events’ Project Manager, Steve Greetham, worked for several weeks to specify and supply equipment and crew, both for the stunning projection mapping onto Buckingham Palace, and the onstage wraparound LED screens and IMAG cameras for the concert stage. This was cleverly built around the Queen Victoria Monument in front of the Palace.
For the much-talked-about Buckingham Palace projections, XL Events supplied a total of 36 Barco FLM HD 20K projectors arranged in 6 stacks of 6, 12 Barco Image Pros and 2 Lightware DVI matrices, all under the watchful eye of Master Projectionist, Andy Joyes and his team.
XL Events also provided the monitoring which was utilized by D3 Technologies for the video mapping and playback of video on the Palace. The animation was commissioned by Sam Pattinson, creative director for the projections, using content from a number of different animators.
The projections were a major highlight of the show.
XL Events also provided approximately 600 tiles of Pixled FX-11 LED which formed the large wraparound screen on the main crown-shaped concert stage.
The onstage screens were fed with an IMAG mix of the array of superstars performing including Stevie Wonder, Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, and Sir Paul McCartney, using XL’s Sony Z-series HDV cameras, Panasonic camcorders, and monitoring.
The onstage provision was managed by Crew Chief, Graham Vinall, with the screens providing an essential part of the show for the public, both in the crowd and at home.
In addition to providing the public screens, XL Events supplied all the sound and video equipment for the backstage hospitality areas.
Greetham commented: "XL Events is very proud to have played a part in this historic event. Working in Her Majesty's front garden presents some very unique challenges, and our crew more than rose to the occasion. The extremely positive reaction to our work is fantastic!"
