Fanta 4 on Tour with LED Video Installation from XL Video

The creative video solutions specialists at XL Video played a crucial role in the stage design for the Die Fantastischen Vier “Record” tour under the direction of production designer Gunther Hecker. A four-metre square, six-faceted LED video cube, each side of which is recordable, hangs directly over the band during the concert. The construction, designed exclusively for this tour, can be moved horizontally and vertically, as well as turned and tilted in all directions. Throughout the entire concert, graphics specially designed for the LED cube in combination with lighting effects are displayed and intensified by the mirrored surfaces on the stage’s rear wall.

This special design marks not only the 25th anniversary of the “Fantas”, but also a decade of collaboration between XL Video and Gunther Hecker along with CUE Design. This cooperation has led to the creation of many special designs.

The mechanical system behind the video cube, based on special touring frames from XL Video, was the result of teamwork with WIcreations, a long-time partner from Belgium. The video cube’s total weight of 3.6 tonnes is suspended from four points. Hecker wanted a system that provides stability while at the same time enables quick assembly and dismantling.
