Las Vegas Neon Museum

An audiovisual immersion experience that uses technology advances to reanimate 40 monumental examples of the Las Vegas’ Neon Museum’s iconic signage. Presented after dark in the Neon Museum’s North Gallery, Brilliant! was created by digital artist and designer Craig Winslow using projection mapping.

To guests immersed in the 30-minute experience, the unrestored, non-working and in some cases broken signs will appear to be suddenly re-electrified. Up to 50 guests at a time are transported directly into Las Vegas’ history, where the signs come to life, accompanied by music from some of the entertainment’s most storied performers. 

The Star PAC

Singapore’s Star Performing Arts Centre (The Star PAC) has expanded its comms capabilities with a Riedel Bolero integrated wireless intercom. Bolero will offer complete wireless integration and channel support for the venue’s existing Riedel Artist intercom system, serving the facility’s 5,000-seat auditorium, function halls and broadcast production centre.

‘Reliable intercoms are critical for our live shows and broadcast operations,’ says Head of Audio, Reuben Ong. ‘After five years with our Riedel Artist, Bolero is a welcome addition – providing integration of all wired and wireless intercoms. Our crew have always raved about the programming flexibility and high audio quality of Artist, and now we can offer those benefits through the wireless system as well.’

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games

Official audio supplier for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Norwest Productions’ site-wide signal distribution relied on an Optocore optical fibre network.

After the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games first put the company on the world stage, Norwest won the competitive bid for the2018 Commonwealth Games, and worked alongside event organiser, Jack Morton Worldwide, to serve the 25,000-capacity stadium. ‘The ability of Optocore to operate interchangeably on both multimode and single-mode fibre allowed us to effectively utilise our inventory and operate over long distances,’ says Norwest Project Manager, Andrew Marsh.

Lichtburg cinema

During the 1950s and 60s, Essen’s Lichtburg was one of the most important premiere cinemas in Germany’s Federal Republic. Today it remains Germany’s largest cinema, lending its historic ambience to film premières.

The demands on such a premiere cinema are high. With the projection technology of the hall already up to date, the sound system has also now been renewed. ‘With the renovation of the cinema sound system we want to live up to the increased expectations of our visitors,’ says Marianne Menze, MD of the Essen Filmkunsttheater and operator of the Lichtburg.
