If anyone ever tells you that Outdoor Video is easy, hang up immediately! The technology has come a long way in the past decade, but the great outdoors still present serious challenges in delivering an image to a screen. One of the main culprits is sunlight. If a screen isn’t bright enough to see the image, who cares how cheap it was. If it starts to fritz out with the first rain drops, will you still think you are the smartest guy in the world because you chose the lowest bid? The best thing you can do is educate yourself on what you need for your application. Even if you fully intend to use someone else, or the cheapest solution you can find, please don’t hesitate to call. We’ll spend the time with you and make sure you are asking the right questions to get the best solution. Yes, it takes a little bit of homework to be informed, but ignoring some simple information could mean the difference between a successful show and a failure.
The V-Tower is not a video screen, it’s a cost-effective screen support system designed to support small LED screens. Compared to traditional truss and staging support options, the V-tower offers a compact design that’s easy to use, portable and has multiple configuration options (Click here to view the configurations we’ve come up with). The V-tower is perfect for concerts and festivals, rallies, races, parades, commencement ceremonies, experiential marketing events, tailgates and sports bars, retail outlets and more!
MODULAR VIDEO SCREENS
Modular systems are composed of standardized units or tiles allowing for easy construction and extreme creative freedom. Upstage Video inventories the latest in LED technology from ROE, InFiLED, Liantronics. We offer all levels of pixel pitch/resolution. These screens can be built to any size or shape. They can be flown from truss or staging structures, stacked on level ground, built into scaffolding or onto our V-Tower support system.
8×13 MOBILE SCREEN
Its small footprint allows you to position it just about anywhere, at a fraction of the cost of a truss-supported screen. While some people think an 8′ x 13′ screen is too small, we believe that multiple smaller screens can be much more effective than one large 18′ x 28′. Obviously, each event is going to have very specific needs, but we have had great success using these screens stage left and right of the Stageline mobile staging units. They are absolutely the most affordable way to offer a two-screen solution. They are also self-contained with a quiet onboard generator and a small control room, which we fit out according to each show’s production requirements. These units are perfect for mobile marketing tours and can easily be wrapped in vinyl branding and staffed by one tech-driver.
11×18 MOBILE SCREEN
These units are simply awesome! 11′ x 18′ Wide Screen. Although the 8×13 offers a small footprint (8′ x 20′ when you include the trailer tongue), these units have an even smaller footprint of 8′ x 16′. Equipped with our very own Liantronics SMD 6mm screens. If you’ve got more pixels, real pixels, packed into a screen this size, we will certainly stop saying we’re the highest…but today, we’re the highest, so there. It also offers a wider height range than the 8×13 as the bottom of the screens can trim from 4′ to 13’6″ (8×13 trims at 10’). This mobile LED screen is so stealth, so low profile, that it can all but disappear behind some potted plants, bike racks, or some small signage.
18×28 MOBILE SCREEN
The biggest mobile unit in our inventory are called upon for the biggest events around. This mobile monster is equipped with a 18′ x 28′ (wide screen format) Liantronics SMD 10mm LED Display. At 7000 nits, both units offer the brightest screens available, which is important if your event is taking place in direct sunlight. The control rooms can be equipped with a variety of switching, monitoring or playback equipment. We gear them up according to each show’s needs. The screens can be used in the down position, or raised to over 20′. The tarp system can also close around the mast when the screen is in the raised position, leaving a very clean look for your audience. If you’ve got a need for a super big video display, these units are the only way to go.
