Australia - The Brisbane Broncos Rugby League Football Club, commonly referred to as the Broncos, are an Australian professional rugby league football club based in the city of Brisbane, QLD.
The Broncos season launch event is a mainstay of the team’s foundation for the year, giving the club an opportunity to announce new players in addition to the coach speaking to the media and fans. For this year’s season launch, the club worked with their tried and tested event technology service provider, Ikonix to deliver an intimate event bringing the team and fans safely together all under one roof at one of Australia’s leading performance venues, with Brompton processing playing an important part in the overall success.
“The Brisbane Broncos launch event reinforces the club’s ethos and the team’s plans for the new season, so it’s an important date in everybody’s calendar,” says Zachary Burton, director at Ikonix. “Our team has been working with the club for a number of years, supporting with productions of different scales of highly polished events. This year’s was no exception.”
The event was held at Brisbane’s Tivoli Theatre, nicknamed The Tiv. “With its stunning art deco features and the old-world charm, The Tiv offered the perfect spot for an intimate event for 350 people, which wouldn’t be possible in a larger venue due to Covid rules constantly changing,” explains Burton.
The situation in Australia was still very much restricted at the time of the Broncos season launch event, which was in March this year, with many events being delivered virtually. For the Ikonix team, this was an opportunity to build trust with the audience and work with a new social-distancing system. As part of the stage design, the team opted for a ‘forest’ of LED strips allowing them to build sections individually and safely. “We used 60 1.2m ROE LED Strips, all powered by Brompton processing,” says Burton.
Having already used Brompton’s Tessera LED processors on many live shows and events, there was no question of using any other LED processing solution but Brompton. “We have found Tessera processors amazing for getting quick results with LED strips, with the 360-degree rotation and mapping tools making it easy to build the set. Additionally, the colour correction that Tessera software offers enabled us to carefully balance and match all the colours,” continues Burton.
