Road and Rental Ready PVP X6IP Outdoor Video Panels!

Such a large amount of production calls for outdoor video, and CHAUVET Professional is at the forefront of providing a tough weatherproof solution to the need — meet the PVP X6IP outdoor video panel!

SUNRISE, Fla. – As the festival and outdoor concert season kicks into high gear, lighting/production designers have a new tool that will make it easier for them to set up ultra-bright, weatherproof video walls at these events – the PVP X6IP high-resolution LED panel from CHAUVET Professional. Featuring a pixel pitch of 6.9mm, the PVP X6IP is an outdoor LED video panel rated at IP65 for its ability to withstand rain, while being brilliant enough to produce images that stand out in the daytime sun. It is also very touring and rental friendly, thanks to an innovative design that allows for quick and secure assembly, easy serviceability in the field, and the versatility to be used indoors as well.

With its high-res 6.9mm pixel pitch and ultra-bright 4,500-NITS illuminance, the PVP X6IP will render images and graphics of any type with impressive clarity, brilliance and definition of detail. The panel utilizes tri-color (red, green, blue) SMD 2623 LEDs with a black body to produce the highest in class contrast levels for video that “jumps out” even in broad daylight. Designed to be both video and audience friendly, it features a 3,120 HZ refresh rate and wide 130° viewing angle, making it ideal for use on-camera, while providing clear visibility from a broad expanse of “live” vantage points.

Designers and installers will find that it’s easy to build video screens and walls of all sizes with the PVP X6IP, too, because CHAUVET Professional has included many innovative and quality features in its design. Each panel has a 19.7 x 19.7 inch (500mm square) display surface, and a thickness of only 3.27 inches (83mm), and is manufactured via a computer guided CNC cutting process to provide the ultimate precision for seamless modular connections. Stainless steel hardware is integrated into each unit to allow for easy and secure interlocking between panels.

For quick, effortless mounting on truss or pipe, the PVP X6IP can be used with CHAUVET Professional’s RB-X50CM or RB-X200CM X-Series Rig Bars (sold separately), which include adjustable connectors that facilitate easy alignment of the panels. Installation can also be accomplished via M12 threaded inserts that are conveniently positioned on all four corners of each panel.

Another handy aspect of the PVP X6IP’s design is that the LED modules themselves are magnetic. This allows for quick replacement of LEDs on the spot whenever necessary, for easy serviceability on the road as well as the repair bench.

To increase safety in outdoor settings where wind is always a factor, the PVP X6IP features a blow-through design with an 8% transparency. But CHAUVET Professional has incorporated innovative sealable louvers into the design, which can be closed to block out back light, giving the panels the versatility to perform equally well in indoor applications. This increases their value to dealers and rental houses, noted Anthony Chiappone, Product Manager for CHAUVET Professional.

“We looked at everything lighting and production designers, installers and dealers wanted in a high resolution outdoor video screen, and we created the PVP X6IP to do it all,” said Chiappone. “From its black-body SMD 2623 LEDs and 6.9mm pixel pitch, which produce daylight-defying brightness and highly detailed images, to its rugged IP65 outdoor rating and ease of setup, the PVP X6IP is designed to deliver outstanding performance on the touring and festival circuit.

“It’s even got some very innovative features such as the sealable louvers for indoor use, which were included to give the panel greater versatility,” added Chiappone. “Rental houses and dealers will appreciate the efficiency of stocking one product that has the functionality to fill a variety of different client needs.”

Made of solid die-cast aluminum, the PVP X6IP panels are durable enough for years of touring and rental use. Yet they’re also very lightweight — just 19.8 pounds (9 kg) each – making them easy to transport and handle.

Operating on LINSN control protocol, the PVP X6IP panels include Seetronic® Etherkon® IP65 data connectors. They work with CHAUVET Professional’s VIP Driver (sold separately), which will act as an interface between any
DVI or HDMI video source and the PVP X6IP, and allow media playback, configuration, addressing and remote power control of the panels.

Borgore debuted his 2012 tour at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, mixing dubstep rhythms from inside an ice cream machine built of MVP™ 18 video panels from CHAUVET® Professional. The Borgore Cream Machine made its big entrance at EDC entertaining enthusiastic crowds, and will go on tour again in the fall in cities throughout the U.S. A concept of Morgan Lavery, the machine was designed to make Borgore look like he was driving inside an ice cream truck, equipped with real 30-inch rims that actually move and spun around on motors.

CHAUVET® Professional Booth Stands Tall at InfoComm 2012

Maybe it was the impressive 30-feet height, or the colorful light and music show that ran every half an hour, or the 300 fixtures lighting in harmony the 20-by-40-feet space. Or, might have been all of the above that drew hundreds of visitors to our booth at this year’s InfoComm show in Las Vegas.

“I think it was the best booth we have ever done overall, as far as design and execution,” said Mike Graham, product manager for CHAUVET® Professional. “It was well planned and everything came together smoothly.”

We launched the new line of trussing called TRUSST® and we announced new fixtures, like PVP™ S7 high-definition video panels, VID™ 100 video drape, Q-Spot™ 360-LED and Q-Spot™ 460-LED moving yokes, COLORado™ 1-Quad IP wash light and WELL™ 2.0 wireless wash light. Our ILUMINARC® brand of fixtures suited for the architainment industry saw the addition of two new luminaires, the Ilumipanel 40 IP and Ilumipod 18g2 IP.

The booth was built around a large video wall, made of 142 video panels of various resolutions. A walkway of 38 Legend™ 412 and Legend™ 412 VW pixel-mapping moving yokes visually guided visitors to a tall wall made of 66 MVP™ 18 and 28 MVP™ 12 video panels, and 48 PVP™ S7 high-definition video panels. The panels, ÉPIX™ Bar batten-style pixel-mapping fixtures and VID™ 100 video drape ran with ArKaos MediaMaster Express™ software.

ÉPIX™ Bar lights placed vertically formed a luminous crown on the semi-circular truss, also loaded with Q-Spot™ 560-LED and Q-Wash™ 560Z-LED fixtures. Framing each video section  were COLORado™ Zoom Tour lights, COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour and COLORado™ 1-Quad Tour wash fixtures. Twenty-three COLORdash™ Accent VW discreetly lit the display pieces of truss from the TRUSST® line.

Lighting Designer Alex Ares programmed the entire rig with a grandMA console and used about 180 cues. “I think it was one of the best looking booths at the show,” Ares said. “And it worked as a perfect example of what you can use in small tours.” Ares has been the lighting designer for the TV show “Duets” on ABC, the Country Music Awards (CMA), CMA Music Festival and more.

The video content for the seven-and-a-half main show was created in-house, by CHAUVET® Video Production Specialist Todd Murray. “We wanted the show to be raw and edgy, and to give the viewer different looks during each segment of the video,” Murray said. “The music was carefully selected to match every segment, and aimed for a concert-like experience, more than a technology-based booth at a trade show.”
