CT's year in Scotland

03 January, 2015

After a great year supplying numerous Scottish events, CT ended 2014 at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations.

2014 marked an amazing year of sport, music and comedy in Scotland.

Creative Technology (CT) is proud to have been a part of Scotland’s Year of Homecoming, supplying numerous events throughout the year.

Starting at T in the Park in July, CT supplied the LED screens used on the Radio 1 stage which saw performances from the likes of Sam Smith, London Grammar and Maximo Park.

Over the same weekend, CT provided both the LED displays and sports presentation services at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, keeping spectators informed of play around the course.

CT was also involved in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, providing the vast majority of the sports presentation video production equipment in addition to more than 360sqm of LED; 120sqm of which was used for the ‘Race Bolt’ interactive visitor experience. Working with partner Dan Sloane of Sloane Squared, CT developed, built and tested the bespoke interactive timing, triggering and HD video capture system.

September saw Gleneagles hosting the European Ryder Cup, which also marked the largest and most complex in CT’s 29 year history with the event. As well as multiple LED screens, hundreds of HD televisions, and projection and audio systems, CT provided complex graphics and network packages serving 600 display locations.

On the comedy circuit, CT supplied both Lee Evans and Jack Whitehall’s UK tours which saw performances at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena and Aberdeen’s AECC Oil & Gas Arena.

And finally, as 2014 drew to a close, CT once again supplied Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations. The live performances at the Concert in the Gardens were captured by five cameras with the feeds mixed and relayed to the two IMAG LED screens rigged either side of the stage. A mixture of content from Playback Pro and clients’ graphics was displayed, relayed to the other stages via RF distribution, providing a befitting finale to 2014.
