Over 600 guests attended the event held in the Victoria Hall at Leeds Town Hall and these were joined by 30,000 viewers watching on-line. Saville AV worked closely with Sky Production Services who managed the broadcast camera mix, OB facilities plus broadcast audio facilities.
The Saville Concept & Design team worked to a very tight schedule with the Sky team to produce a bespoke presenter table, specially curved in design so as to offer the best camera angles for the eight seated presenters. Finished in gloss white with concealed LED architectural lighting and offset with illuminated grill features to each end, the finished article provided the perfect centerpiece to the show.
Centre stage the technical team provided a huge 7m x 4m Absen LED videowall supported by a specially designed box truss ground support system capable of supporting the massive 1.5 tonne weight. The camera friendly LED wall was accompanied onstage by two large fully printed graphics to create stage ”wings” creating a perfect backdrop for the show whilst allowing enough of the halls fabulous Baroque architecture to show through creating an air of extravagance.
Architectural features & structural pillars were enhanced with ultra slimline LED uplighters whilst the impressive exterior pillars on the building’s facade benefited from 30 battery operated LED uplighters highlighting hanging banners. Robe Robin and Pointe LED lights created a rich, warm room environment with subtle gobo projection and a hint of haze adding an air of intimacy.
