AC-ET Hippos for Cheryl Cole tour
Working across a number of sectors including live music, events, television productions and corporate presentations, Fix8 wanted a robust, flexible and stable video control solution to service their busy schedule of up-coming events.
Fix8's Neil Trenell directed lighting and operated video control for Cheryl Cole's A Million Lights Tour - specifying two of Fix8's brand-new Hippotizer HDs for the job.
Video content for the tour was designed by show directors, Fatima Robinson and Beth Honan; and was produced by Helena Spencer at The Field.
At the centre of the set, a large pyramid shaped upstage screen was constructed from 9mm WinVision LED panels, with the stage set fascias also clad in the same surface - bringing depth and multi-layered dynamics to the space.
One Hippotizer HD ran all the video elements during the show - triggered by timecode from the audio track - with the second utilised as a 'hot' backup. Both were positioned onstage with a Zookeeper remote at FOH, making a neat and tidy control solution.
