Yeovil District Hospital has recently moved its “iCare” Annual Award Ceremony to a new venue – The GateWay, Yeovil – and with this came the challenge of finding a new Production Company to take care of all technical aspects for the prestigious event.
As one of the leading suppliers in the area, Revolution Audio was ideally placed to turn their event ideas into results. Working with the event planning team over many weeks before the event, we provided full sound, lighting and video systems for the ceremony.
On the audio front, we utilised the house system at The GateWay venue, with Nexo PS15 mains, LS1200 Subs and X32 digital console. Additional loudspeakers were provided from our extensive inventory as stage monitors for The Indie Killers, who were due to provide the evening’s entertainment. We also provided a substantial selection of high-quality microphones, alongside the new Wireless Microphone Installation at The GateWay, fully specified and commissioned by Revolution Audio.
Wireless relay of the event to the foyer area was also provided, using a QSC K10 active loudspeaker, and Sennheiser EW Series transmitters and receivers. This creative solution perfectly met the needs of the client, without the need for unsightly cable runs from the Control Room.
Moving onto the lighting, we deployed six Chauvet Rogue M2 LED Wash Moving Heads on the truss, which – thanks to their punchy beam and versatile features – were used for both general room and stage wash, but also for effects during the band performance. On the stage, two Martin Mac 250 Entours were used for gobo projection and additional effects lighting. Three ETC Source 4 Juniors were deployed along the lighting truss to give total control over the lighting of the lectern, awards and band areas on stage.
Around the room, we utilised six Chauvet FreedomPar LED Uplighters to bring the pillars of the venue to life. These tiny, wireless fixtures truly outperformed their size, and provided a punchy light to bring significantly more depth and life to the room setup.
We also worked closely with the organisers on how to provide the best first impression to their guests from outside the venue. Indeed, we suggested a full external uplighting system with colour chase options. For this, we deployed four Showtec M800 LED Fixtures with IP Rated Covers, and finished the look off with two more Chauvet FreedomPars to frame the entry doors.
All fixtures were controlled via Chamsys MagicQ software, and all LED Fixtures were programmed with the client’s specific RGB colour codes, to ensure a truly consistent look throughout.
Finally, we provided a video system including live video relay to the installed projection system, as well as presentation management and professional cueing software.
The event was a clear and shining example of Revolution Audio’s ability to deliver true excellence in all aspects of event production, through working closely with clients and sharing our own expertise and creativity to create truly special and memorable events.
