The Solution

PYTCH provided 160 panels of DigiLED HRI 3.9mm video wall controlled by Novastar 4k processors. The video wall was one of many outputs from the ATEM Production Studio 4K 4 M/E which was handling all the switching between cameras, custom supersources and gaming machines. Heading up the camera front was our Blackmagic URSA Broadcast cameras with a mixture of Canon HJ lenses. We also provided Sennheiser 6000 series radio mics, 300 series IEM and Pioneer DJ equipment.

The outcome

The show was a resounding success, members of the crowd won PS5's, Monitors and many other items by challening IShowSpeed on stage. The live stream had over 65,000 people watching and we streamed for over 2.5 hours.
