CT Screenco run hot with Chilli's at V
3 October 2003
UK - The 2003 V Festivals once again formed part of CT Screenco's busy summer season as they continue to service the event with video production. Sponsored by Virgin Mobile, the V Festivals started in 1996, and are now held simultaneously at 'north' and 'south' locations (Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffordshire). CT Screenco provided their services through production companies Maztec in Chelmsford and Roseclaim in Shropshire. Bands this year included the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, David Gray, PJ Harvey, Queens of the Stone Age, Ash, Underworld, Feeder, Super Furry Animals, Morcheeba and The Hives.
CT Screenco again supplied two 32sq.m (8 x 4) screens, either side of the stage, in both locations. They provided 25mm high brightness LED displays in Shropshire, while at Hylands Park they fielded a pair of 6 x 6 Lighthouse LVP1650 16mm screens, stage left and right, along with a 5 x 5 10mm Toshiba LED display in the artists VIP tent (the feeds were taken from an OB truck, which was recording the show for television). The company also provided an 11sq.m 15mm LED mobile screen to CPM Events at Chelmsford for use on the Microsoft Xbox promotion.
Screenco then supported American company Performance Video as sub-contractors during The Red Hot Chilli Peppers' European stint (linking up with them on eight shows, including the two V Festival headline spots). This was expedient, since both companies were operating production's preferred Lighthouse LVP1650 displays. The set featured 48 modules of LVP1650, designed in abstract format. These were divided into four video columns on stage, each column comprising of 12 (2 x 6) modules enclosed within the set, and heavily interlaced with graphics and live imagery. CT Screenco also supplied a three-camera PPU.
