As event organizers for the 2015 Miss Florida and Miss Teen Florida pageant
prepared to host the annual competition, Trenton Dick was asked to help give the
show a fresh look. Since the pageant had been using the same set pieces over
previous competitions, Dick suggested the introduction of an HD LED video wall.
With everyone on board, Dick turned to Nashville-based PixelFLEX and decided to
bring the FLEXCurtain HD video wall into the Mahaffey Theater.
“The full production takes place over a full week with the preliminary rounds, the

wall to complement,’ explained Dick. “So earlier this year, I went to the PixelFLEX
home office to speak with Jon Lewis about how we could use their products in my
church, and in the process we started talking about how we could also use them for
the Miss Florida Pageant as well. In discussing what we needed, we decided that the
FLEXCurtain HD video wall would be the best product for this application and it
