Welcome to FIX8GROUP

WE DISCUSS

From Pencil Sketch and Blue Sky thinking, we love to talk through creative challenges that push the live event horizon.

WE DEVELOP

We take those challenges and work them, test them, sometimes break them. Then make sure all aspects are not only creatively stimulating but also technically viable.

WE DESIGN

We live in a 3 dimensional world so we think, design and work in 3D. Our applications and technology follow a path to maximize creativity with technical reality – images, influences and ideas through to 3D drafting and technical layouts. We love to blend technology with creativity.

Services

Programing + Operation

Programing + Operation

From pixels to PAR cans and everything in between, the FIX8 team have a wealth of skill and experience of programming at the highest levels. Specialising in, but not limited to, MA2 consoles we love nothing more than getting behind a console whether it’s on site in an arena, theatre, television studio or muddy festival field or back at base in one of our 2 purpose built pre visualisation studios. To us, there is no difference between lighting and video. It is all part of a bigger visual canvas and the programmer has that important task of taking technology and using it to create something visually spectacular that always enhances and compliments the action on stage. We take this role very seriously and from creating millimetre accurate 3D models so that any pre programming seamlessly integrates with the real world set and fixtures, to tireless attention to detail, FIX8 are ready and willing to take on any programming challenge.

Production Design

Production Design

Drawing from our collective decades of experience and the diversity of our past and current clients, FIX8 are well placed to provide the perfect visual design for any concert, event or television show. We always approach every design with a view to making it service the production as a whole. Lighting should blend with scenic and video elements, not compete against them, to create a single visual canvas. We employ a variety of tools to bring our designs to life at every stage of the process. From producing photo realistic visuals, to comprehensive, detailed CAD plans as well as great relationships with some of the industry's leading rental houses, you can trust FIX8 to deliver from concept through to show time, every time. 

Project Management

Project Management

The devil is in the detail and at FIX8 we are all about the details in every aspect of our projects and events. We have an experienced Project Management team on board with years of combined experience working on some of the most complex events of recent times. We can manage all technical aspects of any event or conference from initial brainstorming sessions right the way through to final delivery. We work very closely with our in house design team to ensure that briefs are being followed and that someone is always keeping an eye towards budget and schedule requirements. Our team has a friendly approachable yet highly professional manner that end clients love which helps them feel at ease when delivering their event in what can sometimes be an intimidating technology filled environment. Whatever the event requirements, FIX8 has the ability to see it through.

Technology Integration

Technology Integration

Technology is a wonderful thing but it can also be a nightmare to some people. At FIX8, we understand that there is a need to be able to take technology and seamlessly integrate it into whatever application it is required. Whether it is cutting edge projection mapping software, the most advanced multi channel moving lights or something out of the norm such as motion tracking or creative LED or virtual reality. We love to take all the new and different elements and make them work in harmony. We can take multiple technologies and blend them together or integrate into a new environment where you would not normally expect to see it. We have fantastic relationships with some cutting edge software and hardware developers who we work closely with to help realise any brief. Nothing is impossible to us.

FIX8Group Expands Dry Hire Division

Visual production expert FIX8Group is expanding its dry hire division with the addition of a wealth of new products under the direction of the company’s Technical Director, Nick Charalampidis.

Charalampidis, who has been with FIX8Group since early 2013, is now responsible for enhancing the division’s dry hire inventory with industry-leading products, carefully selected to suit almost all requirements.

“Before joining FIX8Group I worked with Green Hippo for five years, so my knowledge of Hippotizer servers and software is second to none,” said Charalampidis. “I am adding an array of Green Hippo kit to our stock, including the Boreal, Karst and Amba servers, with the new, powerful, v4 software.”

FIX8Group’s technical mission is to always give the best service possible – to supply servers set up in the correct way and loaded with the right software to suit the user’s requirements, and to provide help and assistance whenever and wherever needed.

“In addition, we’re increasing our stock of d3 servers, to include the flagship d3 4x4pro, which is capable of four 4K outputs or sixteen HD outputs,” added Charalampidis. ” We’re very proud to have two d3 Studios within the company and to offer in-depth experience of d3 operation and setup to help any project.”

FIX8 has also recently invested in Dataton Watchout for both hire and internal events, expanding its service and rental offering with customised racks.

“FIX8 continues to expand our media server variety and knowledge across many systems to stay at the forefront of the industry, something which I’m thrilled to drive forward,” said Charalampidis.

The team is also charged with staying cutting edge with control desk solutions, including MA Lighting’s GrandMA2 full size, light and fade wing desks and PC software. Alongside this, the associated infrastructure is available, including dual link 16-way and 8-way matrices, 16-way DVI matrices, 4K PPU and much more.

“Our vision is to provide kit attuned to a truly 4K workflow,” added Charalampidis. “We’re aiming for dry hire excellence, and nothing less.

“I’m excited to further strengthen FIX8’s position in the dry hire market and building on our strong relationships with both end users and our brands.”

Welcome to the family Richard and Paul

Left Richard Kenyon; Right Paul Williams;

FIX8Group are extremely proud to welcome AV Pro Paul Williams and Creative Genius Richard Kenyon into the team! Paul, Richard and the company have had a long successful history working together, and we look forward to working alongside them on our future projects, so watch this space!

Paul joins the team following eight years as Managing Director of Integrated Audio Visual Ltd – a company which he built from start up to provide AV services to end clients and production companies. Prior to that, he spent five years as a freelance AV engineer.

“After working closely with FIX8 on various jobs over the past four years, it was obvious that the synergy created through those close working practices could be strengthened and leveraged for forthcoming projects,” says Paul. “My responsibilities as Project Director will focus on supporting the delivery of our work.

“This will include streamlining the processes for project delivery, with an overview of compliance and training within the company, project management roles on some specific projects as well as working closely with the Technical Director to ensure that we are bringing the best tools to bear in delivering and exceeding the expectations FIX8Group’s clients.

“I hope to help FIX8 not only provide outstanding services to its clients, but also provide services backed up by robust practices and forward-thinking technology,” Paul concludes.

Richard joins us bringing a wealth of industry knowledge, experience and skills to broaden FIX8Group’s offering and is responsible for overseeing the development and integration of FIX8Studio – the company’s new digital activation facility.

“I worked with a number of artists such as Shirley Bassey, Rod Stewart, Elton John and Queen,” says Richard. “I was inspired by Queen’s lighting rig to take up lighting design for nightclubs and live performers. After moving to London I became a freelance AV technician. I became an expert in video/data projection when it was still a black art. I formed my first company with a colleague providing project management and show operator services. We came across one of the first Apple computers being used for conference graphics. We decided to invest in a system and that is where my interest – obsession! – in computer generated graphics started.

“Over the last few years I have completed several successful projects for FIX8Group, warming to the company’s style and ambitions,” says Richard. “This relationship naturally progressed to a point where it made sense for us to pursue our shared vision, to integrate the technical and creative disciplines and in turn create an industry leading company for all live event technical and creative requirements.

“FIX8Studio is working on several projects utilising our extensive skill set to deliver an end to end service,” Richard explains. “Everything from the initial conceptual ideas through to design and storyboarding, planning, execution and delivery.”
