X6IP on Batman v Superman PremiereIPS stock a range of video equipment, including Chauvet LED screens, which offer bright clear images and can be used where a projection option may not be effective, such as in a venue with a high ambient light level, or where presenters or performers need to be close to a screen and there are limited rigging options or no space for rear projection.

High Resolution Indoor & Outdoor LED Screen

LED screen can bring a different look to an event that has previous not used video content – and can be used to make all kinds of screen sizes and configurations as well as conventional 4:3 and 16:9 options.  All IPS LED Screens are suitable for use indoors, and can be dimmed if required to suit the ambient light levels - for example for a theatrical application. Outdoor IP rated screen options are available, with an even higher brightness output. Screens can be suspended from stage structures or existing rigging locations, or IPS has a truss based ground support system that can be used to build a screen almost anywhere. Screens can be supplied in conventional sizes for films or video playback, or if you have custom content, we can work with you to build almost any shapes or size configuration. At the time this page is being updated, we currently have a single LED Screen option, being the 4.8mm pitch Chauvet F4IP Screen. Offering a comparatively high resolution for an outdoor product, the 4.8mm pitch high brightness panels offer a popular choice for all kinds of outdoor projects, from Film Premieres to Art Installations. 

 

Power is an essential requirement for any technical production, and the team at IPS are ready to supply your event needs. Large stocks of cabling and power distribution mean that we can deliver the supplies that your event requires, anywhere on your event site.  We have a small fleet of our own generators, and can also supply multiple and synced sets depending on your event requirements. IPS also have qualified electricians on the team who are able to advise on the best power distribution configurations and sign off completed installations. IPS can also supply earth stakes and bonding kits to ensure that the whole temporary electrical power installation is compliant, and meets the requirements of the BS 7909:2011 Code of practice for temporary electrical systems for entertainment and related purposes


Generators & Fuel Management
IPS stock a range of different generators, including some of the latest Stage V low emission units. The models stocked have been selected for their quiet running and fuel efficiency, and both offer various different outlet options – see our Dry Hire section for further details. All IPS generators are HVO Fuel powered, and can be supplied with fuel, ready to go for your event.

 

There are many different generator configurations. For larger events, or for situations where a backup generator is required, we would suggest a synced pair of generators that load share, and either generator can instantaneously take over in the event that a generator develops a fault. During non-show times, one set can run alone to save fuel. We can also advise on combining existing mains supplies or battery based power options too.
IPS can also supply fuel management services to ensure that your event runs smoothly, and keeps on running. Effective power planning can also maximise the efficiency of the power generation equipment specified for your event, and also minimise the fuel requirements.

Power-DistroPower Distribution
IPS has a wealth of experience in power distribution for a range of scenarios, from muddy outdoor event sites to a neat exhibition in a conference centre.  We have a range of equipment to suit your power distribution requirements, and thousands of metres of cabling to connect everything together. If you have 100 exhibitors each needing a 13a socket, we can help, and are equally at home providing a three phase 400a Powerlock distribution system to multiple distribution boards. Our range of distribution equipment will enable the right power supply to be made to the correct location, and with the appropriate circuit protection for the application.

Site Lighting
IPS can also supply a wide range of site lighting, from festoon lighting to mark walkways and campsite perimeters, to flood lighting to light carparks, meeting points, entrances and much more. Energy efficient discharge floodlights are used, and we stock a range of hardware to enable fixtures to be fitted into a wide range of scenarios.

Whatever your event power requirements, why not give us a call to discuss your requirements.
