South Africa - Cape Town’s first Green Hippo Amba+ was put through its paces at the Shoprite Super Service Awards held in at the ExecuJet Hangar at Cape Town International Airport, with one third of the 2400sq.m space used for a jet plane parked inside.
Solid Group were appointed by Venturescapes Events to supply the full technical at the awards, attended by 600 guests. They took ownership of the Hippotizer Amba+ a few days before the event.
“We initially came up to visit DWR Distribution purely to attend the L-Acoustics Kiva demo with Richard Smith,” Alex van Dyk, owner of the Solid Group, explains. “Luckily we set aside enough time so that we could go through all the toys. Dylan Jones spent time with us on the Green Hippo, and we completely fell in love with it. Even having the baby Amba+, it’s incredible how powerful such a small unit can be, and this is the entry level unit! It packs a punch.”
Keystone Productions created the content around the three separate screens. “The nominees' names would appear on the left-hand screen, and the area from which they came from would be on the right-hand screen, with an award category always on the centre screen with a rolling video,” adds Van Dyk. “For some of the artists’ performance, they had a camera in the middle and video running on both sides or vice-versa. So we would split the screens up to do different things at different times which is exactly where the Hippo came in and did incredibly well.”
