Devon-based S+H Technical Support, specialist for LED visual effects, drapes and starcloths has launched a brand new HD Video Banner product which will be available for all types of live events, together with conferences, exhibitions and other situations needing quick and easy plug-and-play digital signage.
S+H’s Terry Murtha spotted a gap in the market for a neat, quick-to-deploy high-resolution solution, and this video product which has been sought by S+H for any pop-up scenario.
“Whether it’s indicating the way to a plenary session or a breakout room, directing delegates to different seminars or providing fun and entertaining branding and content in specific areas of an event space – like hallways and corridors – or highlighting an area of an exhibition stand, this is a really fast and simple way to get noticed or to issue clear directions” enthused Murtha.
The standard S+H Video Banner offers a 2.5 mm pitch and 224 x 756 pixels per panel in a 622 mm wide by 1980 mm high format. The 6.7 mm deep modules can be near-seamlessly butted up together and are housed in robust aluminium panels for protection and easy transportation.
The units weight 35Kg each and are designed from the ground up, with all S+H’s expertise in the live events field. “They can easily be moved around to different locations within a venue, which is a frequent requirement of conferences or exhibitions” observed Murtha.
They can currently be floor mounted, and custom brackets are arriving soon to facilitate flying and wall or truss mounting. The Video Banners and integral processing system allow for a stand-alone mode.
S+H has also devised a folding, push-up A-frame foot on the rear which folds flat and integrates with the frame for travel. This means that the Video Banners can be stood up like photo frames.
One of the first jobs for the new Video Banners was the Hotel Transylvania 3 movie gala screening at the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, London, where production company Concorde Media used several floor-mounting Banners to get branding and graphics into otherwise difficult to access corners and corridors.
