The ceremony awarded innovation by all standards to ‘City Builders’ who apply the best state-of-the-art technologies in service delivery.

To illuminate this context, HQ Creative engaged with Protec in their creative development to exhibit the best state-of-the-art technologies in the visual industry.
Automation & Rigging
The stage centred on a 5m x 5m cube required to rotate though 180º on a central axis, raise, lower and pitch during the show with all the movements working with and enhancing the tracking video content.
Projection
The show’s projection system showcased technical regional firsts – employing Cast’s Blacktrax system to provide consistent and precise image tracking, auto-calibrating a D3 media server.

Lighting
For this corporate awards ceremony with a projected opening section, lighting was both sympathetic and supportive. The canvas of 100m of laser cut black molten drape with a laminated rear projection surface came to life with city colours and VL3000 Spots. The stage edging dressed with 15,000 x 250mm Schnick Schnack strips with 88 Artnet control universes with MA2 show control, fibre network and calibrated for Blacktrax tracking for the MC.
Audio
With a curved stage, Protec Audio took a tailored approach to cover the 180º room using a selection of L-Acoustics KARA , 115 HiQ’s and ARCSII powered by LA Rack amplifiers and run from a Digico SD9 desk. The sound system was integrated into the overall event design, complimenting lighting and multimedia elements.
