CT provides video equipment for Qatar project
Doha, July 7, 2010
Creative Technology (CT) provided a variety of video equipment for the inauguration of Phase 2 of the Al Khaleej Gas (AKG) Project in Qatar.
For this event Creative Technology supplied four Barco R20+ projectors with 0.8 lenses blended onto a 27m wide x 6m high rear projection screen, also provided by CT. This was used to run the main show content and included GFX video and Catalyst. Operated and programmed by CT London’s Anthony Bezencon, the entire system was driven by Spyder control, while all playback was via Pronto HD machines.
The main showcase to the event was a 6m x 6m Musion screen that hydraulically floated down from the trussing to sit at its desired position and was used to create a powerful and virtual 3D image/video in front of the main rear projection screen. In order to achieve this effect CT supplied three HD20K blended projectors flown in portrait orientation pointing vertically at an angle of 22 degrees and mounted on frames custom designed by CT London for the occasion.
The entire content was programmed and played through a fully backed up 6 channel V4 Watchout system, programmed by CT London's Tom Burford.
A four camera digital High Definition PPU system, mixed by vision director Steve Price, recorded the whole inauguration and fed HD Imag to the Watchout system for display on the Rear Projection Screen. Additionally a sub mix was sent to QTV Qatar for the live distribution of the event to the TV channels.
In addition, production designer Sven Pedersen designed a huge building mapping of the grand entrance to the venue through which all guests entered, which attracted the attendees’ attention from the moment they arrived. CT helped achieve this by using a further six Barco 20k projectors.
“The event ran seamlessly and was a pleasure to work on with such a great team,” said Andy Reardon, project manager for CT.-TradeArabia News Service
