USA - During the construction of The Jay and Susie Gogue Performing Arts Centre at Auburn University, Alabama, Taylor Dyleski, director of production, was searching for a coms partner to deploy and install an intercom solution for the large indoor/outdoor space.
The Gogue found a dependable partner and the appropriate communications system with Pliant Technologies’ CrewCom wireless intercom system, as the manufacturer joined the project mid-construction and was able to provide a system that fit the theatre’s exact needs.
“With Pliant being a local manufacturer, they came down to the construction site and we walked around the bare-bones, concrete building, taking measurements and readings, to figure out how much product we would need to build a dependable, full-coverage coms system,” says Dyleski. “Not only does Pliant offer a solution that fits our current needs, they also set us up for future success with the ability to expand the system.”
Pliant’s CrewCom wireless intercom system for The Gogue consists of a CrewCom Control Unit (CCU) located in an AV room just outside of the theatre connected to two Radio Transceivers (RTs): one is located in a dressing room, which provides coverage for the entire backstage area, and the other is located in the catwalk above the seating area, which covers the front of house area as well as the theatre. The system also includes five four-volume Radio Packs (RPs).
“Finding a solid intercom solution to deploy in a theatre setting with its thick concrete walls can be very challenging,” explains Dyleski. “Most theatres struggle with horrible static and echoes with their intercom system, but with Pliant, those issues are non-existent. The audio quality is crystal-clear and the system simply works - it’s really amazing.”
