Overview

Each summer the great and the good of folk music visit the picturesque university city for the Cambridge Folk Festival.

This year, the site at Cherry Hinton Hall saw the 51st Festival, with main stage headline performances including Joan Baez, The Proclaimers, Frank Turner, Joan Armatrading, and Passenger.

With three days of sunny weather, the central arena outside the Main Stage tent was packed with festival-goers. To ensure that those outside the tent had an excellent view of the artists onstage, the event organisers, Cambridge Live, called on XL Video to supply a pair of outdoor LED screens.

Two 9m2 screens were requested, as in previous years, and PRG XL’s Project Manager, Paul Wood provided XL’s own ROE Visual MC-7 7.5mm resolution, indoor/outdoor LED. The screen was selected for its good visibility in daylight, weatherproofing, and high resolution, giving the audience great image quality, even at relatively close distances.

The screens displayed a mixture of IMAG content from the cameras in the tent, festival logos, social media links, information, and sponsor advertising.

This is the sixth consecutive year PRG XL Video has supplied video equipment and services for the Cambridge Folk Festival.

Paul Wood comments: “It’s always a big pleasure to work at this special Festival, and the 7.5mm high resolution outdoor screens, used here for the first time, were a success!”
