Kit out the US leg of Depeche Mode’s Global Spirit Tour with a critical deadline for the first show.
The US leg of Depeche Mode’s Global Spirit Tour kicked off in style mid-August 2017 in Salt Lake City. InfiLED’s local partner InfiLED EM International provided the panels for a stunning, split-screen video on stage.
The equipment was air-freighted direct to Salt Lake City with a critical deadline for the first show. With such a tight turnaround it’s especially important that nothing is left to chance, so Brompton Technology’s Adam (Lego) Callaway provided training for the crew at Brompton’s offices in Ealing before they left for the States, and Brompton’s China-side FAE team was on hand during manufacture to oversee calibration of the panels.
The tiles have been repackaged for the road into a custom touring system provided by Twenty Three Co, headed up by LED guru Kristof Soreyn. The Twenty Three Co team also oversaw Factory Acceptance Testing of the panels prior to delivery.
“As a recent start-up, Universal Pixels only invests in video technology with a clearly defined future road map, Tessera provides this and has become the industry standard for LED processing (regardless of panel manufacturer or SMD type) – which helps us hugely, both with technician knowledge, and on the road support.”
