London's Under the Bridge, already one of the UK's most technically advanced mid-sized venues, has added a host of new video, lighting and audio kit for the 2019 season
By IQ on 09 Sep 2019
Under the Bridge has announced its install of a brand new LED wall, LED lighting rig and audio system, in time for the busy events season ahead.
Adding to the already extensive sound and lighting facilities in the south-west London music venue, a new 3.9mm pitch LED wall has now been unveiled, upgrading to a video resolution higher than 1080p. This equals crystal-clear images for guests and clients, and means the screen is ideal for presentations, high-quality images and video content.
There is also a completely new LED lighting rig, expanding the existing stock to offer more intelligent lighting, including LED spots and Fresnels to allow for a host of colour mixing options at the push of a button. In addition, Under the Bridge will be one of the first venues in the country to use Clay Paky’s new wash and beam fixtures, the B-EYE K25 and Mini B. The positioning of these will enable lighting options from all angles in the venue and will allow clients to highlight any chosen space or booth.
“The upgrade puts our intimate venue in a class of its own”
On the audio front, the AV team have improved facilities with a new top-of-the-range Shure Axient Digital wireless system, and high-performance RF with better command and control for any visiting sound engineers.
“Since Under the Bridge launched in 2011, we’ve taken great pride being one of the UK’s most unique and technically advanced mid-sized, multi-purpose venues for hire,” says creative manager, Alan Tenenbaum. “With approximately 100 confirmed events scheduled to host for the remainder of 2019, we’re excited to share this production upgrade with our clients and audiences.
“The upgrade puts our intimate venue in a class of its own beyond compare.”
With this considerable install, there is only one message from the team at Under the Bridge: that they are here to stay!
