While the show may be over, the industry buzz is just ramping up after PRG introduced groundbreaking new solutions to an enthusiastic response at LDI. Here are the highlights:
GroundControl™ Followspot System Named Best Debuting Product
The new PRG GroundControl Followspot System won Best Debuting Product in the category of Staging and Rigging at the LDI Awards. The system allows a high output PRG Bad Boy to be operated as a followspot from up to 2,000’ away. Now, not only can followspot operators work safely from the ground, but because of the small footprint in the rig for only the luminaire, followspots can be placed in a wider variety of positions.
Innovations for Scenic Automation
We introduced the V-Command Automation Console and SpeedStar Variable Speed Chain Hoist. The PRG V-Command Automation Console has a smaller footprint but all of the power and functionality of the PRG Commander Automation Console. PRG's SpeedStar, built for speed at its 0-11 feet per minute (1/2 ton) and 0-55 feet per minute (1 ton) rate, features built-in load cells and smooth and quiet operation.
PRG also brings home Parnelli award as “Video Production Company of the Year”.
During LDI, at the 15th Annual Parnelli Awards, a gala event and dinner held at the Rio Hotel & Casino, PRG was named the Video Production Company of the Year. The Parnelli, named after Tour & Production Manager Rick ‘Parnelli’ O'Brien, holds prestige in the production industry as it reflects being nominated and voted upon by colleagues industry-wide.
