XL Video Shines at the BAFTA Cymru Awards 2014

Publish date:

XL Video supplied LED screens and control for the 2014 BAFTA Cymru Awards. The event, held on 26th October at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff, celebrates the best productions from the television and film industries in Wales.

Working with BAFTA show producer, Jonathan Davies, and production designer, David Marson, XL Video supplied a 15m wide by 4.2m high LED screen formed from a combination of its ROE MC-18T and MC-7T products.

The MC-18 tiles formed the majority of the screen with a high-resolution MC-7 screen 5.4m wide x 3 m high inset to show VTs and other live footage.

The mixture of LED resolutions in one screen was specified by XL Video’s Film & TV Manager, Jeff Bailey, and made possible by XL’s bespoke touring frames, which can fit all four types of ROE LED, and enabled easy and quick build and de-rig.

A dual channel Catalyst system from XL Video controlled the content via the OB truck, and allowed the screen to be used as a single canvas backdrop or with VT cut in to the high-resolution section.

During the evening the screen displayed Nominees and Winners’ VTs, as well as category graphics and logos for the awards, hosted by Jason Mohammad, and formed the backdrop for a performance by Welsh superstar Katherine Jenkins.

XL Video also sponsored one of the award categories – Production Design – which was won by Arwel Wyn Jones for his work on the international hit drama ‘Sherlock’.

XL’s Jeff Bailey comments: “We’re delighted to supply the BAFTA Cymru awards this year, and to sponsor the Production Design category. With so many excellent productions coming out of Wales, the event becomes more prestigious every year, and we’re pleased to be able to contribute to the quality of the show!”
