Last summer the accountants Hazlewoods came to us with a different request. They wanted to show the Uruguay Vs England Worldcup 2014 football game live at Cheltenham Town Football Club. They asked us to provide a projector and screen to show the football as well as a sound system.
They wanted to provide a great experience for some of their clients, staff and partners – By showing the football on a big screen, providing a great atmosphere and providing drink and food.
There were a few challenges to overcome in being able to provide a great service for Hazlewoods. The first one that the video signal for the live broadcast came into the building in a completely different room to where the football was going to be shown. We invested in some new technology that meant we could send the HD video signal over Cat 6. This is a great bit of tech that is now part of our stock.
Another challenge we dealt with was the position of the projector. The ideal location for the projector was in the middle of a table where they wanted to seat guests. This would have also mean that there would have been shadows on the screen. We therefore hung the projector 2.5 meters in the air from one of our stands. This moved the projector out of the way and stopped any shadows appearing on the screen.
Hazlewoods were very happy with the service that we provided. This is what they had to say:
[su_box title=”Testominal” style=”soft”]We worked with The Production Works in June 2014 to provide our audio and visual needs for a live TV event. Rowan provided an excellent service and went to every effort to improve the quality of our event by offering HD screening, alongside site visits prior to the event. We look forward to working with The Production Works again in the future.
