Two of the biggest players in their respective fields, Gearhouse South Africa and Dimension TV have embarked on a joint venture in the arena of Light Emitting Diode (LED) Screens.
The new company known as LEDVision (Pty) Ltd came into operation countrywide on November 1st 2005 and lays claim to the largest product stockholding of the latest high-resolution outdoor product, Lighthouse Ri/o 16 and popular Optiscreen system in southern Africa
LED technology ensures unsurpassed picture brightness and clarity across a variety of weather and light level conditions. This factor coupled with low power consumption, high intensity and exceptional image clarity makes these screens ideal for use on a wide variety of indoor and outdoor events from sporting events, corporate communications and product launches to government events and television game shows.
Modular video panel systems can be assembled into customisable large-scale screens to suit any application and were most recently used in SA on the 46664 concerts, the MTV Base 100 Launch, Closing Ceremony of the 10 years of Democracy Celebrations, Nike Woman's Dance Festival and the FINA Swimming World Cup 04/05.
All screens and auxiliary services such as microwave and satellite links, screen support structures, audio playback systems and power generators are installed and operated by qualified technicians ensuring a professional and reliable turnkey service.
Of additional interest to clients is the incorporation of advertising revenue as an add-on service, with the potential to offset part or all screen costs through:
engaging potential sponsors
selling ad packages
displaying adverts before, after, and between acts.
LEDVision is operating in Gauteng, Western Cape and Kwa Zulu Natal, ensuring that LED screen rental is now accessible and affordable countrywide.
LEDVision director, Dion Strydom, formerly of LED Screen Hire (London) comments on the new venture "What a fantastic opportunity to return to South Africa, teaming up with Richard Baker, Gearhouse and Dimension TV in a time of exciting growth for the country as a whole. LEDVision will be unrivalled in all areas bringing LED Screen rental within everyone's grasp. We can offer world class equipment backed with the technical and project management skills you would expect from a market leader."
