SLS celebrates with DoT
08-10-2013
UAE – SLS Production recently awarded by Viola Communications to provide a complete technical support of Sound, Light, Stage, LED and Projection system for the Department of Transport (DoT) Awards Night at St. Regis Hotel, Abu Dhabi. 
DoT Awards Night was organized to give tribute to employees for their long service with the institution.  Series of presentations and film documentary about DoT were shown before the awarding ceremony.  Entertainment and live music accompanied the guests in their dinner.
A highlight of the show was when the performers did their number at the backstage in which the 19m x 5m LED screen was divided into two using the 27m track system for movable screen to reveal another screen on the center.  The performance was projected from the rear by a Christie 12K HD Projector. 
The main P.A consisted of two flown JBL Vertec VT4888 arrays at the far peripherals of the LED wall and stage. These elements were rigged with 15º inner facing offsets at an 8 metre trim in order to supply an even horizontal and vertical sound coverage to the main VIP tables that housed the first 25 metres of the venue.
The main P.A had further Low Frequency reinforcement (LFE) by the way of two ground-stacked clusters of the VT4880 Sub element, explains Ben Spencer, SLS Sound Engineer for the event.

Two lines of delay were used to achieve an even coverage to the rear of the venue. Nexo PS15's were truss flown to compliment the main P.A, the first truss comprised of four boxes and a further two boxes were rigged on the back truss to slightly augment the narrow entrance to the room. Delay compensation was added to the Nexo delay lines to create continuum in effect.

M. Hamza, Production Director, was there to supervise the 3-day production set-up and managing the show during the event.
