Production Resource Group (PRG), provider of entertainment and event technology, is combining several business units to create the PRG Music Group.
This new division will be under the leadership of Mickey Curbishley, CEO PRG Music, and will focus on providing integrated video and lighting solutions for tours, festivals, and concert events around the world.
The team will be supported with $50m investment in new video equipment, which Access is informed will cover UK investment too.
“We are bringing together leading industry veterans, technology experts, and the operational know-how of PRG Concert Touring, PRG Nocturne, and Chaos Visual Productions into a single integrated organisation,” said Curbishley. “The PRG Music Group is and will be the ‘go-to’ production resource for our clients. The goal is simple—we want to make it as easy as possible to do business with PRG.”
In addition to integrating the three teams, PRG is making an immediate investment in the latest video technology. “We are investing over $50m in new gear,” continues Curbishley. “We are pairing new equipment with our newly combined team to better serve our clients. We have some of the top talent in the business and by combining these three teams into one group we are now stronger than the sum of our parts.”
Bob Brigham, president of PRG Nocturne said: “We are making a major investment in new, state-of-the-art video technology, including HD flypacks and cameras that integrate the latest technology from Grass Valley, Ross Video, and Fujinon; additional PRG Nocturne LED video modules and our proprietary LED processing. These systems will be based in our facilities in Los Angeles, Chicago, and London. PRG clients in the concert touring, film, TV, and corporate events will see a remarkable leap forward with these PRG Nocturne HD systems.”
John Wiseman, senior vice president of PRG Nocturne, agrees that the new HD systems extend PRG Nocturne’s industry leadership. “For years, PRG Nocturne has defined the state-of-the-art for video technology in our industry having supported acts like Paul McCartney, Bruno Mars, KISS, Linkin Park, Bon Jovi, Katy Perry, and many others. The new HD systems along with our new V-12 LED video modules, new line of V Series video processors, additional V-Thru transparent LED video panels, and the exceptional service delivered by our talented staff establish a new standard for the markets we serve,” he added.
