S+H Launches New Video Banner Product
Ilfracombe-based S+H Technical Support, specialists for LED visual effects, drapes and starcloths has launched a brand new HD video banner product which is set to be a huge success for all types of live events, together with conferences, exhibitions and other situations needing quick and easy plug-and-play digital signage.
S+H’s Terry Murtha spotted a gap in the market for a neat, quick-to-deploy high resolution solution, and this video product which has been sought by S+H, is perfect for any ‘pop-up’ scenario.
“Whether it’s indicating the way to a plenary session or a breakout room, directing delegates to different seminars or providing fun and entertaining branding and content in specific areas of an event space – like hallways and corridors – or highlighting an area of an exhibition stand, this is a really fast and simple way to get noticed or to issue clear directions” enthused Terry.
The standard S+H Video Banner offers a 2.5mm pitch and 224 x 756 pixels per panel in a 622mm wide by 1980mm high format. The 6.7mm deep modules can be near-seamlessly butted up together and are housed in robust aluminium panels for protection and easy transportation.
The units weight 35kg each and are designed from the ground up, with all S+H’s expertise in the live events field. “They can easily be moved around to different locations within a venue, which is a frequent requirement of conferences or exhibitions,” observed Terry.
They can currently be floor mounted, and custom brackets are arriving soon to facilitate flying and wall or truss mounting.
The video banners and integral processing system allows for stand-alone mode, which is ultimately useful.
S+H has also devised a folding, push-up A-frame foot on the rear which folds flat and integrates with the frame for travel. This means that the video banners can stand up like photo frames, which is by far the most versatile and practical option for many applications. It means they can be positioned virtually anywhere.
They can be fed with video sources from any standard laptop or media server and the crisp HD display pops out in any environment.
From energising the back area of a festival bar to highlighting routes to different function or party rooms, this is a truly universal and multi-purpose product.
The video banners join S+H’s extensive stock of video floor and other inventive screen products which are always popular, and have the same robust build quality.
One of the first jobs for the new video banners was the Hotel Transylvania 3 movie gala screening at the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, London, where production company Concorde Media used several floor-mounting banners to get branding and graphics into otherwise difficult to access corners and corridors.
They were a huge success in this context and worked in in conjunction with some video floor products also supplied by S+H for the same event. Both surfaces could be fed corresponding or contrasting content offering full visual flexibility.
S+H already has the video banners booked out on a number of other projects over the summer, and they will be a perfect complement to other video special FX elements the company offers from stock.
