Upstage Video Provides The Mann Center with Lighthouse VideoBlades SkyRoll
Upstage Video has teamed with LED video screen manufacturer Lighthouse to provide VideoBlades SkyRoll to The Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
VideoBlades is a revolutionary large-scale modular LED video screen that delivers superb image quality both indoors and outdoors, with a literal twist -- SkyRoll is deployed by rolling the LED video screen down from a patented rotating structure, like a window shade. The modular format allows for the seamless formation of large-scale screens limited in size only by a customer's needs. Upstage Video will provide a 12' x 20' VideoBlades SkyRoll to The Mann Center.
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts presents diverse, world-class entertainment in a beautiful park setting at affordable prices. The Mann presents a comprehensive season of performances consisting of classical concerts and a wide variety of artistic programs designed to embrace all of the performing arts and musical genres.
From July through September, Upstage Video will maintain the VideoBlades Skyroll at The Mann, and provide a camera production crew for the cultural center's many events. From October through June, the SkyRoll LED video screen will be a part of Upstage Video's rental inventory.
"It was a pleasure working with The Mann Center for the Performing Arts," said Doug Murray, president of Upstage Video. "As a Philadelphia native, who has been at the venue for many concerts while growing up, I took great pride in establishing an outstanding visual component for the audience. The VideoBlades SkyRoll provides an outstandingly simple and highly effective LED screen inside the lush performance setting of The Mann Center for the Performing Arts. The audience experience has never been better!"
Lighthouse's VideoBlades SkyRoll is perfect for the weather conditions at The Mann, an outdoor venue with a partial roof. Skyroll's simplicity allows it to be taken in and out quickly and easily. Basic rigging makes it user friendly, secure, and rapidly maneuverable.
"Upstage Video was the perfect partner in collaborating on the video screen for The Mann Center for the Performing Arts," said Debbie Lobel, director of production at The Mann. "Their professionalism and expert technicians exceeded all of our needs. The end result is that our audiences enjoy exceptional viewing for an enhanced experience at our venue."
