LED battens provide stage backgrounds for concerts
Pixelline products from James Thomas Engineering provided low-resolution display backdrops for two major concert events in the UK this summer.

Similar effects were achieved with Massive Attack's summer concert at the Bristol Harbourside Amphitheatre.
Lighting designers Andy Hurst and Vince Foster came up with the concept of a super low-resolution horizontal wall of Pixellines -151 pixels wide by 161 high - with gaps between the units.
In practical terms, the wall consisted of four custom banks of 8 Pixellines each, with a Pixelline width space in between each batten.
Highlighting the band in silhouette, the Pixelline wall acted as a emotive information carrier and a dynamic, mega-bright, light-surface for largely video originated content.
