MAJOR EVENT AUDIO
Our audio systems design process combines the rigour of science and mathematics, with ongoing involvement in live event projects to deliver an audience experience like no other. Thanks to our involvement in multiple Olympic events, we have a greater understanding than any other consultancy of how to design audio systems that deliver remarkable sound.
SERVICES AND EXPERTISE
LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEMS & ELECTRO-ACOUSTICS
Our loudspeaker systems are designed to suit the venue geometry and performance expectations with a strong focus on architectural integration.
We use EASE software for direct and reverberant field modelling as well as proprietary direct field modelling software from various manufacturers.
SIGNAL TRANSPORT NETWORKS
With the experience of designing signal transport networks for the most demanding and mission critical situations including multiple Olympic Games Ceremonies, our approach focuses on robustness, reliability and fail-safety.
Our designs are tailored to integrate the audio control systems, stage input systems and loudspeaker systems for each project.
AUDIO CONTROL SYSTEMS
From fully automated control systems to sophisticated arrangements of multiple consoles and operators, we design our audio control systems to provide the most suitable tools customised to suit the needs of the users and operators.
Our designs replace complexity with sophistication and provide a logical and enjoyable user experience.
The stage audio system elements includes customised stage input panels, stage boxes, stage power, performer monitoring and foldback and RF systems.
Everything from an audio-over-Ethernet environment to a fully analog system, all with customised stage connection panels carefully designed and placed to suit the requirements of the project.
BROADCAST AND RECORDING
From room capture and archiving to fully integrated broadcast mixing systems, we design systems specific to the needs of the project and tailored to the users to provide the best experience.
Our designs are forward-thinking to keep up with the fast pace of technology development and content distribution.
AUDIO REPLAY SYSTEMS
Our show control and replay system design concepts have been used on major events for many years including multiple Olympic Games Ceremonies since Athens 2004.
We use various systems including Fairlight, Ovation and Qlab to deliver robust and flexible playback systems of any scale.
MDL BEAST FESTIVAL
With an audience of over 100,000 people, the MDL Beast music festival in Riyadh was a massive project and delivered in an impossibly short time frame. Our design for main stage used over 400 loudspeakers to deliver concert sound to the 80,000 capacity main venue.
48TH UAE NATIONAL DAY
The 48th UAE National Day was a hugely ambitious and technically challenging project. The comparatively simple audio system consisted of a distributed stereo arrangement of over 300 loudspeakers throughout the stadium.
This event in St Petersburg set a new world record for the largest orchestra ever at 8,097 musicians. We were engaged by the CSA of Moscow to help develop a plan to coordinate and rehearse such a large group of musicians and work out strategies to keep the players in time.
