AAE works with ULA Group to deliver world-class digital experience for fitness fans at Les Mills
Les Mills Auckland City – a mecca for fitness devotees from all around the globe – goes digital! A large format VuePix Infiled screen has been installed in one of their key Group Fitness studios. Australasian Audio Engineering (AAE) is an independent Audio-Visual solution provider for Les Mills and has worked in close conjunction with the team from Les Mills and ULA Group to ensure that the solution meets Les Mills’ exacting performance standards and delivers an outstanding experience to their members.
“The VuePix QE3 screen is the perfect fit for Les Mills”, says Steve Smith, Sales Manager at AAE. VuePix QE3 screen – 5.5m wide and 3m tall – has been installed behind the instructor stage, providing a perfect digital platform to play the videos for Les Mills Virtual classes. AAE worked with the in-house team at Les Mills to build a support structure from which to hang the screen. With a 3.9mm pixel pitch and a native resolution of 1,408 x 768 pixels, the LED screen delivers the perfect balance of contrast and brightness in and environment where there is a lot of natural light coming through the windows. The system is equipped with an ambient brightness / light sensor, which adjusts the brightness of the screen throughout the day as required. When not being used, the screen automatically switches to black and fades into the background. All content is driven off an iPad with Les Mills custom video playback software. NovaStar MCTRL 600 Controller and RGBlink X1 Scaler provide a perfect control solution for the digital platform. “It was a pleasure as always working with the team at AAE, who always strive to produce an outstanding result for their customers,” comments Garth Reynolds, Branch Manager of ULA Group NZ.
