Continuing a working relationship which spans over a decade, PRG XL Video is supplying video projection for DJ Shadow’s current tour in support of his latest album, ‘The Mountain Will Fall’.

DJ Shadow’s current worldwide tour uses a compact on-stage technical set-up backed with a custom-built triple projection screen built by Hangman/Metalman in Norwich, UK. The three screens are angled around the DJ and producer, making him central to the content.

Created by video director, multimedia producer and long-term collaborator, Ben Stokes, and by Shadow himself, much of the content for the show are original visuals inspired by the music, including some creative which ties in with the new album.

To supplement the custom-built touring projection screen, PRG XL Video are supplying the tour with four Panasonic PT DZ21KE projectors, each supplying 20,000 lumens brightness, across the three screens. They were also chosen due to their compact size.

A further voile screen is used downstage to create a ‘holographic’ effect, and one of the Panasonic units is used to project onto this screen from the rear using a 0.38 ultra short throw lens.

PRG XL Account Manager, Jay Mobbs-Beal comments: “We’re very happy to continue working with DJ Shadow, Ben Stokes, and Tour Manager, Ed Hutchinson to provide projection for this new touring set. The show is very much based around video, but with the tour visiting a wide variety of countries and venues worldwide, our technical brief required us to make the maximum impact with the smallest possible footprint. The Panasonic 20k projectors are ideal in that respect.”
