IAC uses TW Audio for Dhow festival

Published: MEA

QATAR: Held under the patronage of HH The Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the recent fourth Katara traditional Dhow festival called on sound reinforcement from TW Audio. The full sound and lighting system for the event was supplied by IAC Qatar.

The maritime heritage festival involves the participation of several GCC countries and introduces guests to traditional performances, pearl diving, sailing and rowing competitions, as well as operettas and other activities.

‘As the Katara Traditional Dhow Festival is such an important event in the region, it requires precise advance planning,’ said Elie Salameh, project and sales manager for IAC. ‘We spent many hours in the office carefully designing and planning the audio and lighting, and are very satisfied with the results.’

‘Before being set up, the PA system was visualised using EASE Focus 2 software,’ added Ndumiso 'Genie' Mkhize, IAC Qatar’s audio engineer. ‘Due to the vast area (around 400m of shoreline) we decided to use four 9m towers, from which we hung arrays of six Vera 10s, supported by Vera L24, to cover a distance extending almost 100m into the Persian Gulf. Two inner arrays were equipped with 120-degree waveguides to expand horizontal coverage.

‘On the other side of the beach, we had the promenade to cover, and for this we used a horizontal array of three T24 at each tower position, facing the opposite direction. This enabled us to achieve extremely even coverage without any compromises,’ he continued. ‘Traditional music here does not usually contain much low-end content, which is why we simply used a couple of B30 and BSX, and this worked out great.’

‘We are very glad to have such professionals in our constantly growing TW Audio family,’ said TW Audio head of support, Michal Poplawski, who was at the event to oversee planning and on-site project management. ‘The sound provided for this event was clear and comprehensible everywhere it needed to be. It was a pleasure to participate in such an interesting cultural event.’
