XL Video supplied full video production for Strictly Come Dancing – The Live Tour in January and February, following the latest TV series.
Video has become an integral element of the Strictly Live presentation, which sees seven celebrity dance couples battle it out nightly for supremacy. It helps ensure that all the intimacy and drama, thrills and spills of the TV show are replicated in the larger-scale environment.
Patrick Doherty’s refined set featured upstage panels of XL Video’s Pixled F-30 LED display, positioned behind the live SCD musicians and singers. The 40m by 20m dancefloor was framed by two LED arches filled with XL’s Martin LC 2140 display. All the custom content was delivered by XL Video’s Catalyst Pro media servers, with additional playback from two Grass Valley Turbo2’s.
