Industry first for SPS at IPC Media Awards

Show Presentation Services (SPS), the UK's largest stockholder of the Barco Dlite7 large screen LED system, introduced new 'Pop Stars' style LED screens, which allows images to move in sequence across a collection of screens in any order.
Following the launch at IPC Media Awards, held at Grosvenor House Hotel, London, Bryan Leathem, Head of SPS' LED display department, said: "LED screens are often used as a backdrop to events and conferences, but the feedback we had been getting from our clients was that they wanted to find a new way of staging their events. Because of the costs involved in hiring a video post-production suite to produce the images to fit the block of screens, this option remained closed to the corporate sector until now.
"We were able to create a template, which we designed in house, enabling the video or graphic images to be correctly positioned on each block of LED, and feed from one block to the next in sequence regardless of the position of the block within the set. Images displayed on the screens were generated on PowerPoint to fit the ready-made template. This process brings the costs right down, whilst still providing a professional solution to our clients needs."
SPS provided a total of 7.2sqm of Barco Dlite 7mm LED screen for the IPC Awards, which were spread across six blocks measuring 896mm by 1344mm. Each block used 1.2sqm of screen and there were also provided two large video screens, positioned to the left and right of the stage, which displayed the names of the nominees and winners, along with video playback and camera pictures.
SPS brought a crew of 32 over a 24-hour set-up period, including a caller to announce the 20 awards presented on the evening.
IPC Presentations Manager, Kimball Stewart, said: "SPS has achieved and surpassed all the goals that were set out for them, and shown me that they have added even more strings to there bow since I last worked with them - I was very impressed. SPS is an integral part of what we do here now, and we will continue to use them as a result of their high quality service."
