Production company CPL invests €2m in video technologies
Production company CPL has invested around £2 million (€2.2m) in LED, processing, media server and projection technology to supply a diverse range of shows and events.

This latest investment will see CPL targeting larger and more ambitious events, and being competitive in more sectors, congruous with a general rise in music-based work.

A selection of premium brand products comprises the bulk of the investment including ROE LED screens, Brompton processing, disguise media servers, Riedel comms, Barco 4K laser projectors and Agile remote camera systems.

Eight Barco UDX-4K32 31,000 lumens projectors have joined the CPL rental fleet and their first show was the Arcadia Spectacular event in London.

CPL has also invested in Riedel ‘Bolero’ Wireless Comms. Bolero supports Bluetooth 4.1, allowing a smartphone to be connected. When a Smartphone is connected the user can receive calls on their phone and talk and listen via their beltpack headset.
CPL has seen the demand for reliable and stable wireless comms skyrocket for all events in the last 12 months, so this purchase is in response to market demand and is the first of a planned phased investment with Riedel to be built on for the future.

Over 200 square metres of ROE CB5 indoor/outdoor product has been added to the CPL inventory. CPL has also purchased ROE’s brand-new carbon fibre Air Frames – the first company in the UK to have these onboard. It will also be added to CPL’s existing stock of ROE Black Onyx 3mm LED screen.

Looking ahead, and to enable the processing of 4K signals and content, CPL has added Brompton SX40 processors to the rental inventory together with XD signal distribution boxes.
