PixelFLEX is the final piece of the puzzle for Crescent Events
USA – With over 90 years of combined experience, Crescent Events is a premier event management company which produces live events nationwide from their offices in Charlotte, NC and Oxnard, CA. Dedicated to providing exceptional service, technical expertise and a high level of creativity, Crescent Events recently made a decision to bolster their rental inventory with an LED video system that would allow them to offer their clients a complete live event production package. Through this acquisition of the award-winning FLEXCurve 6mm LED video system, Nashville-based PixelFLEX is proud to announce Crescent Events as its newest production rental partner.
“At Crescent Events we have been working with LED video for a few years now and we have begun seeing more of our clients asking about the creative stage design possibilities LED video can create,” began Chris Gerhart, Crescent Events founder and president. “As we started taking a deeper look at the different LED manufacturers we knew we wanted to be in the 6mm pixel pitch range, but then we also wanted a system that could operate in both indoor and outdoor event designs. When we found the FLEXCurve from PixelFLEX it had everything we needed plus we really liked the creative possibilities of the curved aspects, the touring quality, and its ease of serviceability.”
The Parnelli Award-winning FLEXCurve breaks all barriers in the rigid tile category through an innovative dual wing curving LED tile. With a 4.8mm – 12mm pitch that is designed for both indoor and outdoor applications, the FLEXCurve is available to meet the needs of those looking for high definition LED displays while still maintaining the unique flexible characteristics of PixelFLEX LED video screens. Designed with rigging flexibility in mind, FLEXCurve LED video screens feature easy top-mounting, “Rig and Click” vertical interconnect, hassle-free alignment, plus quick horizontal interconnect and curve set-up.
“With our client base we are now mostly using the FLEXCurve LED video system for creative scenic elements in various column configurations with dynamic patterns and text elements,” continued Gerhart. “Through the addition of the FLEXCurve system to our rental inventory, we have an expansive technical element to give our event designs a new energy whether indoors or outside. We have already had many clients comment on how crisp and clean the content reads and working with the PixelFLEX team has been a great experience.”
As a live event production designer, Gerhart also knows that it’s the performance of a product during the load-in and programming process that can often show its real value. Needing the FLEXCurve LED video system to operate consistently and efficiently, he is confident the design behind the system will stand the test of time.
“Our typical load-in for an event is about one day and it is extremely important that once we are onsite everything works the way it is designed,” explained Gerhart. “The FLEXCurve system is extremely easy to set up and program on site, but if you ever do need to replace a module, PixelFLEX has taken the time to design a very easy module replacement system. When programming, the entire system is very user-friendly and makes it simple to add media servers into the mix so we can create custom content for even more dynamic effects.”
With the FLEXCurve LED video system now being used by Crescent Events on their production designs nationwide, Gerhart is also enthusiastic about the design opportunities the FLEXCurve will open up in the future.
“We are very excited about the future possibilities that the purchase of the FLEXCurve LED video system will provide for Crescent Events,” concluded Gerhart. “With the ability to go outside and introduce a curved LED video design as well, we will now be able work on more festivals and small concerts which is a new shift for Crescent Events. The FLEXCurve really is the final piece of the puzzle for us to be a complete live event production provider and we are proud to be the newest PixelFLEX production rental partner.”
