The Purple Turtle in Reading is a longstanding bar/club which opened its doors back in 1990 and has been the spiritual home of many customers since. They are famous for showcasing many live bands on their main floor as well as live DJ’s on the lower floor and also possibly one of the best beer gardens in Reading.
Project Audio Visual were given the task of replacing the existing dual 7500 ANSI Lumen brightness projectors (15000 total brightness) that the PT had installed in 2016 but were not up to the task in hand. These projectors were twin stacked in the loft of one of their buildings and projecting on to a large screen in their outdoor space which is like a whole club in itself.
We then decided that an LED display was the only way to go so therefore specified an Outdoor LED with a pixel pitch of 5.9mm and a viewing size of 4.5x3m.
This screen would then be used not only for showing sporting events but also for showing music videos in the evening and any internal promotions that the Purple Turtle may want to show to their customers. This is also a first for an LED in a club/bar in the Reading area and was seen as another way of drawing customers to the ever popular bar which has been in the heart of Reading since 1990!
