‘Best ever’ Thames display relied on ‘zero glitch’ audio equipment
The PA system which underpinned London’s New Year sound and light spectacular, produced by Jack Morton Worldwide on behalf of The Major’s Office, was meticulously planned and designed by Delta Sound, working closely with A/V specialist VDC Trading. The system, built almost entirely on VDC products and Van Damme cable delivered flawless performance according to Delta Sound Technical Manager, Mark Powell.
He said: “We spent a month in pre-production and 5 days on site preparing and working through our plans for the night. It’s a very high profile event, seen on TV screens all over the world, so total reliability is a minimum requirement. That is exactly how it turned out. We did not experience a single glitch on the day and some thanks must go to the Technical Manager at VDC, Nick Chmara. He provided the honest and reliable advice we have come to expect, as well as outstanding service.”.
Delta’s recently refurbished outside broadcast vehicle, which served as a command centre on the night, is also packed full of Van Damme multicore, TourCat Cat5 and fibre optic patch, along with VDC patch bays and panels. Powell said: “We chose the products with great care, as it’s our reputation on the line every time.”.
Nick Chmara of VDC said: “I’m delighted that Delta Sound experienced such a successful production at this year’s New Year firework display in London. Here at VDC we will continue to offer our customers only the best advice available, supported by best in class leading such as Van Damme cabling solutions.”.
