Roe Visual’s Black Quartz crowns Coronation Concert

May 18, 2023

Commissioned by BBC Studios, Creative Technology is extremely proud to have delivered the main LED screens and projection mapping of Windsor Castle for the Coronation Concert of King Charles III. Roe Visual’s Black Quartz crowned the stage.

With a long history of providing unrivalled audiovisual solutions to a multitude of large-scale live events for BBC Studios, Creative Technology was tasked to deliver the main LED screens and projection mapping, choosing Roe Visual’s Black Quartz BQ4 for the job.

“It is always a huge honour to work on such high-profile live events, from the 75th commemoration of VJ Day, to the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. It is incredible to see not only the public’s overwhelming response but also the entire live events industry showing such high praise and support for the people behind the scenes who make all of it possible.” – Graham Miller, head of music/entertainment at Creative Technology UK.

Working for BBC Studios to Stufish’s stage design, a 315 sqm curved flown video screen took centre position – displaying stunning imagery and video as well as live playback of the many performances throughout the evening.

Roe Visual’s Black Quartz BQ4 outdoor LED screen was selected for the job. It’s high brightness of 5000 nits and great contrast made it the perfect panel to do right to the gorgeous content.

Senior project manager, Stuart Young, has been delivering events of this caliber for over 25 years and played an integral part in providing the expertise and experience to pull together an extremely challenging brief. Stuart commented, “As ever, it is a privilege to be among those asked to deliver these iconic events. Having a superlative crew able to calmly deliver these technically demanding projects without being phased by the scale and complexity helps ensure continued client confidence.”

With over 10 million viewers watching the huge celebration at home, with many more worldwide and a 20,000 strong audience gathered within Windsor Castle grounds including King Charles III and the Royal Family, the Creative Technology team worked hard throughout the entire planning and delivery stages of the event to ensure a seamless and spectacular show for everyone.
