Brompton supports B&T Awards show in Sydney

The B&T Awards stand as one of the most entered and respected industry accolades in Australia. Last year’s B&T Awards, hosted at the Hordern Pavilion in the heart of Sydney, revolved around the theme “Embrace the Extra-Ordinary”, with forty categories presented during the night. Collaborating with their client, The Misfits Media Co., for whom Audio Visual Events (AVE) has been the preferred production partner for five years, an LED structure powered by Brompton Technology’s Tessera LED processors was orchestrated.


“Before the B&T Awards, we assisted the Misfits team with their internal B&T & Travel Weekly programmes and agency event work”, explains Paul Keating, Director at AVE. “The brief for this year’s event, encompassing the client’s mood board, event styling, and content, featured dark backgrounds and vibrant colours. This was a perfect fit for utilising LED, allowing for deep, dark colours and contrasting vibrant ones to pop.”


The AVE team, including Eric Spencer (Senior Account Manager), Dan Quinn (Technical Project Manager), Dylan Hovey (Technical Director), and Brenton Dine (Vision Specialist), closely collaborated with The Misfits Media Co.’s Senior Producer Lachlan Russel and Project Manager Romy Bradbridge to bring the project to life.


“We built a central LED screen, 12 m wide by 4 m high, flanked by two vertical pillars, each measuring 1.5 m wide by 3 m high. This gave us a total of 15 m in width to play back the custom content B&T created for the show”, says Keating. The main LED wall comprised 192 Unilumin UpadIII 2.6 panels and was powered by a 4K Tessera SX40 LED processor with four Tessera XD data distribution units. Simultaneously, the two vertical pillars, which required an additional 36 tiles, were driven by a Tessera M2 LED processor.


The Misfits Media Co. developed custom content for the event in-house, including opening videos, looping backgrounds, awards presentations, and a range of alphas. All of these utilised the entire LED canvas, and the AVE team time-coded the LX. Pre-event, AVE hosted the Misfits team for content checks, aiding in establishing muscle memory for the show’s flow and ensuring the content was perfect during the show.


The LED wall also provided a backdrop for the after-party, with the AVE team using it to play custom VJ loops, with a a custom-made DJ surround rolled in and featuring new lighting fixtures. “This ensured the event evolved whilst still using the Brompton-driven LED wall backdrop as the main feature”, says Keating.
