Mountain View Staging (MVS) opts for FLEXTour LED video solution from Nashville-based PixelFLEX.
“We have been in business for 18 years and have been using LED products for the last 10,” began Peter Johnson, Mountain View Staging CEO and Owner.
He continued: “Since LED now rivals projection, we have switched priorities to the new technology to keep up with changing demand from our clients. It’s all about the increased resolution, contrast, dynamic range and image quality, and the FLEXTour solution checked all the boxes for our priorities.”
A robust, high-definition and curve-able LED video display, PixelFLEX FLEXTour is designed specifically for the rigorous demands of live entertainment productions. With its unique rigging capabilities that allow for traditional and off-set configurations, each 500mm x 500mm tile is fully front-serviceable and its integrated climbing ladder allows for quick access to displays flown high overhead.
Johnson continued: “Since we mostly work with tech companies, the ability to display software demos with sharp text and graphic elements was a high priority. When you look at the FLEXTour panels and the way they are built, including the design of the locking mechanisms and the LED pixels themselves, it is clearly a superior product. Additionally, the support and service we receive from PixelFLEX are outstanding, and that was the real deal-maker in this decision.”
With the PixelFLEX FLEXTour LED video solution now in stock, MVS was ready to deploy the technology in its initial rental application. Asked to produce a compelling 3-day client event in California, the design team would be able to create the ideal display for a successful product launch.
“We deployed the FLEXTour panels in a curved setup for the first time at the Event Marketer Summit in support of Opus Agency and their launch of a new mobile app for live streaming video sharing,” explained Johnson.
“This was during the annual Ex Awards at the Historic Warfield Theater in San Francisco. The juxtaposition of the brand-new, high-tech FLEXTour LED wall in this old historic theatre really made the experience memorable for three separate events back-to-back, including an executive summit, the Ex Awards and the EMS general session the next day.”
In the fast-paced world of live production, MVS believes that an event company is only as good as the people behind it. Applying that same philosophy to its technology partners as well, Johnson is excited to be joining the growing PixelFLEX rental partner network.
“The LED market can be frustrating to get into but PixelFLEX has a quality product at a good price point with the service and support to match,” concluded Johnson. “That is rare to find all those things together in one product from other brands, and there is absolutely no question that we would make the same decision again.”
