Electric Tundra Chooses PixelFLEX's FLEXCurtain HD

August 2015

The University at Buffalo Student Association-hosted Electric Tundra concert, headlined by Bingo Players and featuring 3LAU and DNNYD, featured HD projections from FLEXCurtain HD from PixelFLEX.


“On Electric Tundra we had the challenge to present a national headlining act with limited setup time on a small stage with a video wall, all on a tight budget,” said Production Manager Katie Gilliland.


“Inside the 6,500 seat arena, equipment cannot be hung from the roof and we didn't have time to build our normal ground-supported power system. We needed to look at lightweight video wall options that could be ground-supported. It was really the weight of FLEXCurtain HD panels that originally sold us.”


The FLEXCurtain HD panels are ultralight, offer extremely crisp and sharp video and image playback, and can be setup and broken down in under 15 minutes.


Gilliland continued: “With our limited setup time, it was an advantage that the FLEXCurtain HD panels loaded-in easily, locked together quickly, and then loaded-out just as [simply]. We had both a student and a professional technician who had never worked with these LED panels before, but they were able to assemble the full system in only a few minutes.”


To ensure they had the ideal pixel pitch to bring their content to life, Gilliland and the tech staff worked with the team at PixelFLEX to find the right model of FLEXCurtain HD. 


Gilliland added: “Our main concern going into the concert was the pixel pitch since our content would be HD and included text. To make sure we chose the right video wall, we worked with PixelFLEX and loaded our content onto a demo wall to create a sample video. Afterwards we decided that the FLEXCurtain HD CCHD-12.5 model would be the best option and it worked great the night of the show.”
