/ CPL Appointed as Preferred Supplier for Stoneleigh Events
CPL has been appointed as the preferred technical supplier for Stoneleigh Events.
Stoneleigh Events’ venue, Stoneleigh Park, is set in beautiful Warwickshire countryside just 30 minutes outside the commercial hub of Birmingham and also in close proximity to CPL’s HQ. CPL will be offering all the sound, lighting, video and AV equipment, and technical support required for corporate and live events, plus exhibitions.
CPL was invited to tender for the position after Stoneleigh Events had learned of the company’s fresh and innovative approach, especially to visual presentation of all types.
CPL’s Operations Director, Richard Burrow, said: “We are really proud to be working so closely with the team at Stoneleigh Events and look forward to a long and productive working relationship with the venue.”
Richard project managed CPL’s showcase at a special open day at Stoneleigh to demonstrate the range of products and services the company can offer to potential and key clients.
For this, a custom 14mtr wide set was installed in the venue’s Warwick Hall, complete with a 10ft by 5.7ft central projection screen. In addition, the set was wrapped in white canvas and the entire area pixel mapped. The CPL and Stoneleigh Events logos were animated using the same versatile software to move with colour changing light trails; a simple effect with spectacular results.
Two Panasonic PT-DZ110 10K projectors were supplied for projection mapping and a Panasonic PT-DZ770 for the centre screen, together with one of CPL’s ‘fly-away’ PPUs, based around the Panasonic AVHS410 mixer, as well as an HD camera. This illustrated a live relay set up.
For relay screens, the new Samsung ME55B LED screens were utilised and, for an added visual dimension, a Samsung 75″ ME75B LED Screen was centrally flown in the room displaying the Stoneleigh Events and CPL logos, to demonstrate how a screen of the above dimensions can create maximum impact for branding.
A d&b Q7 sound system with Q-SUBS completed the technical production picture for the occasion, together with a compact and energy efficient lighting rig of Martin MAC Aura LED washes, plus LED battens, controlled by an Avolites Pearl Tiger.
The team at CPL is very much looking forward to working on the diverse range of shows and events staged throughout the Stoneleigh Events complex and bringing its technical acumen to a dynamic equation.
