PRG provided LED screen solutions for INCA Productions and Es Devlin at the Serpentine Summer Party

Overview

PRG UK maintained its reputation as being the market-leader for event services technology for the corporate sector by working with INCA Productions to provide technical solutions for Es Devlin’s artistic cube installation at the Serpentine Summer Party. The prestigious annual event held in Kensington Gardens saw leading international figures from the worlds of art, architecture, design, fashion, music, film and business to celebrate and raise funds for the Serpentine gallery’s globally acclaimed exhibitions, architecture, education and live programmes.

Our Technical Director John Montague and Production Manager Tom Walsh worked with a team of expert technicians which was overseen by the watchful eye of Mark Connolly of INCA Events to deliver the challenge. This involved the team having to work with Set Square’s custom fabrication while ensuring that the cube structure rotated with all of the power and that the data was transmitted correctly via a specially made slip ring.

In terms of the video screen used within Devlin’s cube structure, PRG supplied a 4.8mm pitch measuring 2.5m in width x 3m in height and was made up of 54 x LED tiles. The content was provided by Luke Halls, which was played back through a Hippo media server. Also, a stand-alone screen was provided to display specific content for Google.

Speaking about PRG UK’s involvement with the Serpentine Summer Party annual event, John Montague commented, “It was a pleasure working with INCA Productions, but equally in being part of such a fantastic corporate event. Although some challenges arose for the crew, we were pleased to overcome them to deliver outdoor video screen solutions successfully to meet the requirements of the client in such a short space of time.”
