Technical production specialist Blue Elephant has become the first UK AV supplier to invest in the very latest generation of xVision® Nomad 2.6 LED screen from Theatrixx Technologies. The two companies exhibited together at MPTS on stand D57.

Offering high-end production services and custom solutions for events of all types, Blue Elephant has purchased over 100sq.m (320 panels – with another 100 to follow!) of the new high-resolution Nomad screen package from Theatrixx, including processing from award-winning London-based manufacturer, Brompton Technology.

xVision Nomad 2.6 indoor screen offers many major advantages to AV production suppliers. Not only is its visual performance of the very highest standard, but it includes a robust and extremely durable die-cast aluminium panel design, with no-GOB (glue on board) module construction. For further durability, Theatrixx’s proprietary TPEP (Titanium/Polymer Edge Protection) technology significantly reduces the possibility of damage to edge and corner pixels.

Now, the second generation of Nomad offers new, brighter anti-glare black diodes from Multi-Color, offering exceptional colour gamut reproduction of ≥95% DCI-P3, with 100% blue accuracy at 1375 Nits. New Brompton Tessera R2+ receiving cards provide the processing power to maximise the performance of these modules.

Furthermore, Nomad’s innovative ‘shaderless’ concept, using Theatrixx’s ‘liquid shader’ design, provides an alternative to the solid shaders traditionally used on LED screen modules. This clever approach eliminates the need for screws and brittle plastic, and provides an unencumbered, 170+ degree viewing angle, horizontally or vertically, with no colour shift. For this model, Theatrixx have also implemented non-proprietary industry standard IP-rated RJ45 and power connectors, allowing customers to utilise their existing cable inventory as needed.

In addition to new ‘lock and go’ top latches for faster installations, another feature is Nomad’s proven integrated rotary angle hub system, which enables screens to be curved at +/- 2.5- or 5-degree angles, with no additional parts, for additional creative flexibility. Together, these features produce first-class visual results while cutting downtime and maintenance costs to a minimum.

Speaking on behalf of Blue Elephant, managing director William Kemp says, “We arrived at the choice of Theatrixx LED with Brompton processing after careful consideration. The incredibly high refresh rate, consistent contrast thanks to the liquid shader design and exceptional colour replication delivers at every level. We know that our clients and their audiences will love the image quality as much as we do, and the integrated rotary angle hub system make it a versatile and creative LED product.”

He adds, “Stocking a high-resolution LED panel as durable as this was also a significant factor in our decision. It means much less downtime due to the rigours of the road, better reliability on site and better value for our clients and partners. This investment demonstrates our commitment to providing best-in-class technology for all our endeavours.”

Blue Elephant is already a customer of Theatrixx, having previously invested in the Montreal-based manufacturer’s range of robust and reliable signal converters. As ever, Theatrixx Technologies is focussed on providing the benefits of innovation, quality, reliability, and support.

Theatrixx Technologies and Blue Elephant presented their solutions at the Media Production & Technology Show (15-16 May) at Olympia London, where they could be found at stand D57.
