LED Creative Goes Live For Liam Payne VR Event

News Image
LED Creative has gone live with LD Stuart Pring for Liam Payne VR event.

Staged at Camden's KOKO club the event was a double first - the artists first headline London show, plus the first broadcast by production company MelodyVR of a live concert in virtual reality.

The ground breaking broadcast was livestreamed internationally via the MelodyVR and as a live 360° Facebook event, giving fans the opportunity of an incredible close up viewer experience of the intimate show by the ex-One Direction star.

Lighting the performance, LD Stuart Pring enlisted the services of Version2 for the main rig, adding an array of additional effects provided by LED Creative.

Utilising the LED specialist's Pulse Wand fixtures, the LD created a linear installation that provided an extra depth of perspective to the stage which served to enhance the virtually reality effect. For added visual impact right throughout the 360° experience Sigma Pulse Wands were also used to form custom built geometric shapes, fixed across the ornate balconies flanking the stage, right up to the upper circle.

Available for rental as 'plug and play' fixtures, the Pulse Wands are a low energy, tubular illumination system that combines both the brightness and look of traditional neon/fluorescent fixtures with the versatility, intensity and highly controllable performance of LED technology. Pairing the Wands with LED Creative Byte Controllers, the crew were able to maintain full management over the installation, augmenting the production with powerful, precise colour and movement throughout the show.

On site to assist with prepping the equipment for the show, LED Creative Project Manager Tim Rees commented: "As well as being an important live show, the Liam Payne concert for MelodyVR broke new ground in the way it was broadcast to viewers across the globe. It was important that the crew were able to create a visually impressive look to accompany the performance - Stuart utilised our Pulse Wands to great effect right around the venue to build a stunning looking 360 degree installation that looked great from all angles!"
