D-Day 70 Years On
SFL provide large screen video projection at the Royal Albert Hall for BBC Radio 2’s “D-Day 70 Years On” commemoration concert.
On June 6th 2014 the world commemorated 70 years since the D-Day landings. Events took place across Europe, with many veterans gathering on the Normandy beaches for this poignant anniversary.
SFL were approached in our capacity as the official AV partner to the Royal Albert Hall to provide in-house video solutions, including large screen projection, for BBC Radio 2’s “D-Day 70 Years On” concert. This touching memorial included performances from Seth Lakeman, Katherine Jenkins, Patrick Stewart, the BBC Concert Orchestra and more.
The main solution was based around two 21′ wide projector screens, powered by SFL’s flagship Barco HDX-FLEX projectors. Additional plasmas screens were supplied for the choir. Signal distribution was managed by SFL’s new Lightware DVI-fibre systems.
SFL’s AV Director, Craig Lawrence, comments; “It was an absolute privilege to be involved in this event on the D-Day anniversary. SFL are proud to be the official AV partner to the Royal Albert Hall, and it’s solutions like this that demonstrate why SFL are industry leaders in what we do.”
