PixelFLEX Gives a New Look to The Miss Florida Pageant

As event organizers for the 2015 Miss Florida and Miss Teen Florida pageant prepared to host the annual competition, Trenton Dick was asked to help give the show a fresh look. Since the pageant had been using the same set pieces over previous competitions, Dick suggested the introduction of an HD LED video wall. With everyone on board, Dick turned to Nashville-based PixelFLEX and decided to bring the FLEXCurtain HD video wall into the Mahaffey Theater.

“The full production takes place over a full week with the preliminary rounds, the Miss Teen Florida competition, and then the final competition for Miss Florida,” began Dick. “In the previous competitions, we had used scenery backdrops, but this year we wanted to update the set for a fresh look. As we talked to the event organizers about using an LED wall, they gave us the green light to move forward and so we chose the PixelFLEX FLEXCurtain HD.”

With a myriad of LED video walls available on the market, Dick had been researching the various options for some time. While in the process of deciding which products to use, he took a visit to the PixelFLEX headquarters and found the ideal solution for the Miss Florida Pageant.

“I had been looking at the PixelFLEX products for a number of years as my church is in the process of updating their cameras to HD video and we needed an HD video wall to complement,” explained Dick. “So earlier this year, I went to the PixelFLEX home office to speak with Jon Lewis about how we could use their products in my church, and in the process we started talking about how we could also use them for the Miss Florida Pageant as well. In discussing what we needed, we decided that the FLEXCurtain HD video wall would be the best product for this application and it worked great.”

The PixelFLEX FLEXCurtain HD is a flexible LED wall that offers a variety of advantages over the competition. FLEXCurtain HD panels are ultralight, offer extremely crisp and sharp video and image playback, and 500-square feet can be setup and broken down in under 15- minutes using the convenient quick-lock system.

Dick continued, “For the Miss Florida Pageant used 13 FLEXCurtain HD panels that were placed center stage to create an 8-foot by 26-foot LED wall hanging six feet off the stage. Since this was our first time using an LED wall for the pageant, we wanted to start out with a simple configuration so that the event organizers could get a good look and feel for what it could do. Once we got the wall hung and powered it on, they absolutely loved it.”
