Cromer Pier’s Pavilion Theatre Takes its Performances to the Next Level with PROLIGHTS DeltaPix
UK – Cromer Pier’s beloved Pavilion Theatre has recently added a digital dimension to its stage by installing a PROLIGHTS DeltaPix48T LED video wall backdrop.
Running for 42 years, the Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre offers a truly unique experience as home to the only ‘End of the Pier’ show of its kind. With approximately 450 seats, audiences are entertained all year round with rib-tickling comedy, show-stopping vocals, mind-blowing speciality acts and an eclectic blend of dance, in an intimate, one of a kind venue.
Keen to return bigger and better than before, the team behind the acclaimed Cromer Pier Show wanted to add new elements to the production and make a strong comeback following the enforced closure of the theatre due to the global pandemic.
Cromer Pier’s director, Rory Holburn commented: “Our new PROLIGHTS DeltaPix48T screen has added a lot more versatility to the show and what can be achieved from a backdrop. The stage is limited in space so we needed something that was fairly compact yet robust and Stuart was able to demonstrate the various PROLIGHTS video panels and we felt confident in our choice. We are delighted with how the DeltaPix has been performing and the huge amount of possibilities it has brought with it. The feedback we had from the summer show was fantastic. It certainly has helped bring the show up-to-date, and we feel like we accomplished coming back bigger and better than before.”
Leading equipment provider, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) supplied the PROLIGHTS DeltaPix screens, along with a Green Hippo Amba+ media server and LSC power distribution. AC-ET’s video specialist, Stuart Burdett worked alongside the team at Cromer Pier to ensure they got the right products for the job and environment. AC-ET’s installation sister-company, A.C. Special Projects (AC-SP) handled the installation of the led wall.
Rory added: “The Green Hippo V4.6 software is incredibly intuitive, we can create shows very quickly and our musicians can trigger the various queues with ease thanks to the MultiController component. Likewise, the inclusion of the LSC APS distro is vitally important as it is helping to protect our investment.”
The Cromer Pier Christmas Show started earlier this month and sees the team getting even more creative with their new technology to take the production to the next level.
“We have been delighted with the complete package. It’s helped us lift the show in to the modern era and enabled us to do things we would have never been able to do in the space without it. The service and support we received from AC-ET and AC-SP was fantastic. Their knowledgeable teams were always happy to help and assist.
We are looking forward to dazzling even more people with our Cromer Pier Christmas Show which will begin in the next few weeks,” concluded Rory.
