CPL Project in Frankfurt
CPL supplied video projection and LED lighting to production company Outlook for a high profile conference in Frankfurt staged by a global medical technology specialist.
The event took place over two days at the Radisson Blu hotel in Frankfurt, familiar to many for its distinctive spherical architectural design and proximity to the Music Messe expo centre.
PM Simon led the CPL team of four who worked alongside two carpenters from set builders Stage, Set and Light who installed a graphic-wrap style set for the plenary sessions with two 3.53 metre by 2.61 metre projection surfaces either side or a graphics panel in the centre, all ground supported in a smart and stylish design.
The projectors were positioned on towers at the back of the room and all the additional lighting was rigged on stands.
Two Panasonic 12K laser projectors were used to beam the images onto the screens which included a series of Playback Pro and PowerPoint presentations run from the laptops of the various different speakers. A Barco PDS 902 was spec’d for the switching requirements which were straightforward.
Lighting for the main sessions comprised ARRI L5-C fresnels which produced a nice even wash across the seating area with ETC ColorSource Spot LED profiles for the key lighting and specials. A few lights from the house system were utilized to complete the task.
The set was highlighted with Philips SL e-STRIPs and for the dinner on the first night, which was staged in the same room, CPL dotted ProLights SMARTBAT LED uplighters around the walls which were highly effective in jazzing up the environment.
