Steubenville recently showcased a collection of CHAUVET Professional PVP X6IP LED video tiles to make a 80-foot video wall.

Tim Messina, the owner of Events United, came up with the idea and used 67 of the tiles to make the wall come to life.

“Once we determined that this was within our budget, the design issue became ‘how do we build the letters ‘V’ and ‘A’ in the wall?’” said Messina. “We couldn’t make the necessary 60° corners with video tiles, so we decided to use truss lined with CHAUVET Professional EPIX Strips.”

The wall also used 32 Rogue R1 Wash fixtures and 12 COLORdash Par-Hex 7 fixtures, and the overall stage design utilized two Maverick MK2 Spots, two Maverick MK2 Washes, one Rogue RH1 Hybrid, and two Par-Hex 7 washes.

“I was blown away by how bright the Maverick fixtures were,” said Messina. “The quality of light and effects they made were fantastic. Behind the 80’ logo we placed 18 Strike 4 blinders to back light the band and the logo. They are incredibly bright, which let Ryan show off some big hits with the band. We also lit up the black backdrop with Chauvet 4X4 Nexus 4x4 panels to help the camera shots not shoot into black behind the presenters. The Strikes and the Nexus panels added layers of light to give a sense of depth to the stage.”
