James has been at Creamfields near Warrington this weekend, providing media server support for XL Video.

XL provide LED screens for the many dance tents on site, and also provide PPU, cameras and LED screens for the two main stages.

This year, to add flexibility, each of the main stages had a Catalyst media server for advertisements. These were fed in to Barco ScreenPro IIs which allowed presets to be stored for each incoming act and allow video to be re-formatted to the portrait aspect of the stage side screens.

Unfortunately for the revellers, the festival was called off early due to the heavy rain. Hopefully next year will be sunnier!
