SGM LED screens provide perfect definition for Foo Fighters

Wednesday, March 18, 2015


American rock legends, Foo Fighters, recently visited Colombia on the South American leg of their Sonic Highways World Tour. At the Estadio Nemesio Camacho, commonly known as ‘El Campín’, in Bogotá, they were greeted by a crowd of 40,000 fans for what was to be an amazing concert.

Prior to the concert, event production company Iluminación Jaime Dussan had been contacted to supply the roof structure as well as LED screens. Dedicated to providing technical services for large scale events such as this, they had the inventory to fulfill the requirements — including big screen reinforcement. “The client required an outdoor screen with a 6mm pitch from a European manufacturer,” informs the company spokesperson, Ms. Andrea Dussán.

The SGM LS-6.67 is IP65 rated and ideal for the job, with its pixel pitch of 6.67mm and a brightness of 5,000 nits per sqm. It comes in a robust but sleek display design, which is easy to install and offers a superior viewing angle of 140˚ - still providing the observer with a complete focused display even in extreme viewing angles.

Side panels surrounding the concert stage each consisted of 7 x 11 low-weight modules, offering a high picture resolution for this huge mass of fans. Another 5 x 8 modules were mounted in delay positions, close to the FOH technical control platform, from where they provided enhanced viewing for the audience behind the mix tower.

“The band has a very visual show so video was of high importance to them,” says Andrea Dussán, who reports the client’s full satisfaction with their services and show results. “They congratulated us for the perfect image and excellent definition,” she says in conclusion.
