Dataton Premium Partner PENMAC Audio Visual supplied WATCHOUT multi-image display and presentation software to synchronise picture and audio playout across seven large-scale LED displays at the tenth annual INNIEBOS Music Festival in Nelspruit, South Africa during June 2013. For the event, all LED stock and technical expertise was supplied and installed by EPH Productions.

Leon Pheiffer at EPH Productions takes up the story: “our brief was to use technology to synchronise the crossover of music styles between Rock and Country and various performances. PENMAC’s support for graphics on the main stage for the gala event was critical to the success of the event.”

A mix of 7mm pitch and 12mm pitch LED surfaces were positioned on stage that brought together the overall theme and context of the musical performances. The LED display panels were distributed across the back of the stage, on the riser steps and on side columns that reached up to 7 meters in height creating a breath-taking spectacle.

Malcolm Finlay, managing director at PENMAC says: “We’re delighted that the event was witnessed by 54,000 people, many who travelled more than 1,500 kilometres to visit this annual celebration of Afrikaans music. Using WATCHOUT not only wowed audiences, it ensured that the event was a complete success.”

Lars Sandlund, chief operating officer at Dataton adds: “WATCHOUT was designed for managing various audio and video feeds for live events and we’re delighted that our technology was once again put through its paces by PENMAC.”

PENMAC was recognized with an award for their outstanding exhibition booth at Mediatech Africa 2013 last month, where they showcased Dataton WATCHOUT™ multi-image display software version 5.5, WATCHPAX™ media server and PICKUP™ audio guides.
