EGL 14 Blackpool
European Gaming League
Our brief was to design, supply and offer support for the EGL14 grand-final event being held in Blackpool. We helped design, rig and operate the extensive AV and lighting requirements for this internationally Live Streamed event. There was a grand prize of 10,000 Euros on offer.
Firefly worked alongside the EGL production team to help produce and manage this event. Our team designed the backdrop and supplied a 5m Full HD rear projection screen and a main stage with a total area of 36sq meters.
With such a large prize on offer our lighting techs had to make sure that the stage was lit seamlessly for the broadcast cameras yet not to cause glare or dazzle the competing professionals during their matches.
With a range of HD monitors and cameras we also supplied full HD video distribution and location power. We also installed our high end HK Elements compact line array sound system with a range of Sennheiser microphones and an Allan and Heath QU15 digital mixer for superb sound playback both in the arena and online.
With the success of this event Firefly went on to help produce and manage a number of future events for the EGL team. In our time working together we have formed a formidable partnership in producing high quality competitive gaming events watched the world over.
