Scottish Sports Awards with Eikos²

2 3

VisionEvents is a leading event production agency offering full design, management, and audio visual talent for events across England. The company produced the annual Scottish Sports Awards event at Glasgow Thistle Hotel in December 2014. Hosted by the famous journalist Jim White, the ceremony celebrated excellence throughout Scottish sports, recognizing athletes and teams for their outstanding achievements throughout the year. VisionEvents successfully entertained attendees, showcased sporting heroes, and created a memorable night for all involved.

The stage consisted of three LED screens at 5.4x2.3m each, resulting to an impressive 17m wide LED backdrop. The three LED screens worked independently to showcase graphic animations, video clips and live camera footage, and together to display moving content across all three for dramatic effect. Screen content was driven by two Avolites AI media servers (main and backup) distributing the content across three separate outputs. Other sources included VT playback from various Macs and three live camera feeds.

VisionEvents chose to use three Analog WayEikos² multi-layer Hi-Resolution Mixer Seamless Switchers based on the Midra™ platform. The Eikos²s were used to set screen presets for the show, each one feeding a different LED screen. Eikos² switchers were ideal for an award show of this size and profile; scaling content to fit the screen aspect ratios. Eikos² and HD inputs ensured a quality finish resolution”, explains Andy Arneil, Project Manager at VisionEvents.
To control the Eikos², VisionEvents chose to use Analog Way’s Axion2 controller: “The Axion2 controller was ideal for ensuring the continuity of show content regardless of the multiple layouts and combinations possible. The Axion2 controller enabled us to assign a preset to every potential layout and create back-ups if required”, added Arneil.

            “Having worked with Analog Way for many years, we are delighted with their service and commitment to our industry. Our crew find the equipment easy to use, extremely well thought out and most importantly, highly reliable” concluded Ali Robertson, Operating Director at VisionEvents.
