Protec and Delta boost DIFC celebrations

Published: MEA

UAE: The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with a visually spectacular show using the iconic Gate building as its canvas. Production house HQ Creative was responsible for the event and called in Production Technology (Protec) to supply the video and lighting equipment and Delta Sound to supply the audio.

The event took on the ambitious feat of projection mapping the front surface of the Gate. The 76m high by 67m wide building was projection mapped to a height of 56m. To accomplish this, Protec Video’s show control specialist, Peter Jones, used the latest D3 server system, routed through a new full fibre output 80 x 80 Lightware matrix to 13 double stacks of Christie HD 20K J series projectors.

Complementing the projection was a lighting system featuring Protec’s new stock of Clay Paky SuperSharpys. Protec Lighting’s LD, Aaron Russ, created a design to enhance the diversity of a show which featured Arabic and international elements, all designed to look exceptional for audience and broadcast camera alike.

With speeches and various musical performances, the audio side of the event was also important. Protec provided its Bosch wireless Integrus interpretation system to each of the 2,000 guests for full understanding of all speeches.

Meanwhile, the remaining audio equipment was supplied by Delta Sound. Croatian-Slovenian virtuoso cello duo consisting of Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser, 2Cellos, played a selection hits from Coldplay, U2, Iron Maiden and Rihanna to the VIP crowd to finish the evening’s celebrations.

‘With such a visually stunning show, it’s important to have the audio live up to the scale of that,’ said Craig Harvey, senior engineer at Delta Sound and audio project manager for the event. ‘Matt Fady at BKP worked really closely with the creative team over at HQ Creative to produce a soundtrack that delivered a big impact for the video content, this made it really important for us to provide a system that could reproduce this.’
