Overview

Continuing to uphold our reputation for being the premier supplier for event technology in the concert touring industry, PRG UK supplied Video Screens, Cameras, PPU and Media Servers for Volbeat’s Rewind, Replay and Rebound European tour. The iconic Danish Rock band embarked on their tour in the early autumn, where they played to thousands of audiences across thirty-two major outdoor venues in fifteen countries. Video Account Manager Nilkanth Patel, worked with Production Manager Andy O to provide his technical expertise to bring Niller Bjerregaard’s design to life while taking into account the variety of different venues in the touring schedule, and to make sure that all the technical requirements of the band and production were serviced effectively throughout.

In terms of the video equipment provided, the LED screens consisted of 86.4 Sqm of CB5 panels, 14.4 Sqm of MC-18 Hybrid along with our proprietary products which included 25.66 Sqm of PRG V18 screens and also over 18 Sqm of PRG V18 screens configured as a riser front. In terms of the Cameras and PPUs, PRG provided, HXC-100 Cameras (two placed in the pit and two at front of house), HDieye Mini Cameras placed around the stage inconspicuously and HD120 Robo Cameras to give options. To complete the video package, mBox media servers were provided for content. A total of six of our crew supported the tour to assist with the band’s production team and the tour manager's technical requirements and to ensure that no technical glitches occurred during performances.

Speaking on behalf of PRG’s involvement with the European run of Volbeat’s tour, our Video Account Manager Nilkanth Patel commented:
“Productions like this can cause much worry with the complexities of rotating monoliths and cable management but the PRG team alongside the production manager Andy O worked through this and made sure that all was smooth and tour-able. PRG’s lightweight ROE CB5 screen and MC touring frames really proved themselves to make sure the monoliths were light enough to track and for the pods to securely fasten to the screens above whilst the PRG V18 screen was a simple and effective screen behind the band to create a lower resolution back wall. It has been a pleasure to bring to life the designs that were just a concept by “Niller Bjerregaard” and from what I have seen I am sure he is very pleased with the final product.”
