Hemming Launches System Design Company
A new specialist sound, lighting and video design and installation company, Live Business International, has opened its doors in London. The company is headed by technical director Roland Hemming, the former head of sound at the Millennium Dome, and is backed by Live Business, the UK’s largest provider of live entertainment. Live Business International specializes in design, installation and maintenance of sound, video and lighting systems in entertainment venues, including cruise ships, hotels, theatres, clubs, stadia and conference venues.

Hemming’s background spans 15 years in the entertainment technology business, beginning at the sound department of Theatre Projects where he pioneered MIDI-based show control in the late 1980s, going on to work as a sound engineer, event production manager, audio consultant and installation designer. In recent years Hemming has been responsible for numerous major cruise ship installations for many European cruise lines.

Prior to forming Live Business International, he managed the design, installation and running of the 57 sound systems at Millennium Dome, the largest sound installation in the world, running a team of 42 engineers. He was also one of the last people to leave the Dome, spending three months this year as production manager in charge of decommissioning every sound, lighting, video and broadcast system with a crew of 192 and 30,000 items of equipment to dismantle.

Hemming told PLASA Media: "Having successfully carried out various high profile installations in recent years, we want to build on that success with an installation company that offers real quality and expertise. We have some of the industry’s best project managers and engineers on board, and some exciting projects in the pipeline."
