PixelFLEX is the Ideal LED Video Solution for Piranha Productions

Piranha Productions is a full-service production company specialising in all the design elements needed to create a powerful, live event production designs. With LED video becoming a consistent component to many of their most successful designs, the decision was made to make an investment in the technology for their rental inventory. Needing a high-resolution and durable solution from a trusted provider, they called upon PixelFLEX and made an investment in FLEXLite Plus 8.9mm LED video.

“Previously we had sub-rented the LED video screens through other companies, but we recently decided it was time to invest in the technology for ourselves. I’ve kept an eye on PixelFLEX over the years so when it came time for us to make the purchase, it was a quick call to discuss what they had to offer and the FLEXLite Plus 8.9mm was exactly what we wanted.” began Greg Teagarden, Vice President of Production.

FLEXLite Plus from PixelFLEX is one of the highest resolution curve-able LED displays on the market and is capable of a 15° curve in any direction. With its bright, dense display and high refresh rate, FLEXLite Plus photographs and videos extremely well and its tiles are calibrated directly out of the box to decrease failure, and ensure the perfect colour and brightness of any LED video design.

“Over the years, I’ve seen so many different iterations of video screens and within the past few years everything had progressed to the small, lightweight LED video panels,” continued Teagarden. “For our designs, we needed a solution that was durable enough to be mounted on a trailer, but also had the ability to create custom, modular configurations. We also wanted a product that was a higher resolution than what we have dealt with in the past, and it was great to be able to look through the PixelFLEX catalogue of products to get down to the precise 8.9mm pixel pitch we needed for our shows.”

As FLEXLite Plus was identified as the ideal LED video solution, there was another characteristic that Teagarden was looking for in a technology partner. Wanting to make an investment in a company known for quality products and support, the industry reputation of PixelFLEX solidified the new relationship.

“In making this investment, I really wanted to partner with a company that was established in the United States with plenty of inventory and a proven ability to respond to any service needs,” admitted Teagarden. “I didn’t want to have to send product overseas or wait for spare parts to arrive from another country, and I knew the PixelFLEX technology has been road-tested over the years so we purchased 70 FLEXLite Plus LED video panels.”

With the purchase now complete, Piranha Productions wasted no time putting their new LED video panels out on the job. Often placed in challenging outdoor and rodeo arena environments, the FLEXLite Plus has performed in every situation and is providing Piranha Productions with the powerful LED video solution they needed.

“Since we’ve taken the new panels into inventory, we’ve had them out on a number of projects and our calendar is quickly filling up with summer events,” concluded Teagarden. “We love how easy the system is to configure onsite and how quickly it all goes together and comes down. Even though we haven’t had any issues with the system whatsoever, should we need to service the panels, it is extremely serviceable in the field, and it that makes the FLEXLite Plus a quality LED video solution.”
