S+H Supplies Animation Cloth For Musical Tour

A special customised version of SHOWLED Animation, supplied by UK Distributor S+H Technical Support Ltd, is being used on the current David Ian Productions and Ambassador Theatre Group UK and Ireland touring version of the hit 'Priscilla Queen Of The Desert - The Musical'.
The Animation Cloth has been supplied to the tour's video contractors XL Video after being specified by their Project Manager Ed Cooper.
It measures 8 metres wide by 7 metres high and was specially manufactured by S+H for the tour with a 130mm grid matrix of pixels as opposed to the standard Animation Cloth where this is random.
The modifications were needed to display the specific Priscilla content being played through it in a certain manner to give it a very 'clean' finish.
The Animation Cloth is flown mid stage and is in for the first 15 minutes of the show, until the famous Priscilla bus is revealed.
It comes back in again at key points during the performance, including for 'Hot Stuff', then again for the casino scene and finally near the end. It is fed with content stored on a Catalyst media server which is also playing back other video elements.
Cooper said: "It's been great working with S+H on this project, and he really appreciates their flexibility to be able to deliver the special version of the product as well as the speed and efficiency of the service.
"S+H's Animation Cloth is popular for its light weight and because it's quick to install and robustly constructed to withstand the rigours of touring. The RGB LEDs can be individually controlled and used to create a wide range of effects and it can be fed from sources stored on any media server or other input devices like laptops."
