SXS Events are celebrating 15 years in business
UK - This year, SXS Events are celebrating 15 years in business and to coincide with celebrations, the company has purchased Calibre UK LEDView530 scaler-switchers for use across their LED and video display fleet.

"Our client base is broad and includes Airbus, Audi, Barbour, BBC, Bentley, the Clinton family, Eurostar, London Fashion Week and Rolex," said Johnny Palmer, production designer, company director and founder at SXS Events.

Projects that have challenged SXS includes building structures over natural lakes and providing 'rain curtain' water screens at Britain's Top Model on Sky TV.

"With every project, we are looking to differentiate the services we provide. By offering a unique set of broad services there are often no other companies who can bid on our projects," said Palmer.

"The key challenge for our business is lead-time. Because our fabrication is so demanding, our core processing technology has to be simple ensuring that the screens work every time, without fail.

"Calibre LEDView530 came highly recommended by several of our partners for use with our LED displays. They offer us installation reliability and flexibility and enable us to be creative. In particular, Calibre UK was selected due to their 3G-SDI input - it's the format of the future."

The robust Calibre LEDView530 live events scaler offers flexible video I/O, powerful pixel-accurate edge-based scaling for optimal images on LED screens from 1920x1200 down to 128x96 pixels. It supports per channel colour calibration and live capture of test patterns and backdrop images.

Calibre UK will exhibit on stand 4U64 at ISE 2015 taking place from 10-12 February 2015 at the Amsterdam RAI.
