Why Linkin Park is Touring with PRG Nocturne Video Screens

Linkin Park, The Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake and many more ... all on stage at the legendary "Rock in Rio" festival in Lisbon. This is the tenth consecutive year PRG Germany has supplied the equipment for the festival. As every year, several bands brought some of their tour equipment on stage with them, including the Rolling Stones and Linkin Park.

The reason is simple: For many bands, lighting or video technology is now part of their set – and the set always goes on tour with them. This year, Linkin Park’s set was particularly striking: The extremely transparent and yet high-resolution PRG Nocturne V9 Lite video system allows musicians to be placed behind the screen. If no signal is applied to the wall, it is transparent enough to see the artists clearly. A signal makes the wall almost opaque. A combination of these effects was also widely used. The light weight of the system allows the screens to be moved quickly and makes for noticeable savings on airfreight costs.

Spacecannons: A spectacular effect is guaranteed!

The 7,000 W Spacecannon is an outdoor searchlight guaranteed to attract attention. The beam of light from the xenon Spacecannon is extremely concentrated and can therefore be seen over very long distances. Ideal for visibility in moist or slightly dusty air, as this causes the light to refract, making the beam very visible. Movement, changing colors and variable angles allow for various effects. Spacecannons are also recommended for the illumination of tall buildings or illumination over long distances.








PRG has more than 200 7,000 W Spacecannons. The rental price depends on the length of time the illuminant is used. Usually, each unit rents for around 1,000 euros per week, extra weeks cost less.

Sample costing for a Spacecannon show:

24 Spacecannons for one show day including pre-programming in our pre-production studio, staff, and transport in Germany – overall net price around 25,000 euros.
