Poland - Protec European Events partnered with their client Xerox once again to deliver the audio, lighting, video and rigging at the Xerox Forum 2018 held in Warsaw.
This event, held in the Doubletree Hilton from 22-24 May, included three days of presentations and 23 seminar sessions with the highlight being the Xerox International Operations Premiere of the new Xerox IridesseTM Production Press.
Xerox hosted 400 of their top graphic communications customers, resellers and business partners from around the world.
The project ran in a few separate spaces or scenes – a daytime conference, a pre-reveal with Kabuki curtain, the reveal element and finally, the conference and demonstrations on the new machine.
Sean Godefroy, HOD Protec video, chose three Barco 20k projectors, one for each side screen and one for a kabuki drop drape projection. He chose the Christie Spyder X20 due to its flexibility and reliability to cater for any instance.
The audio team chose the unobtrusive Nexo Geo M6 line array to cover the 6m high, long, wide room. The rig was designed by Simon King, PM at Protec, checked by Ben Waters HOD of Audio and operated on site by sound engineer Gareth Taylor. Everything was operated from a Yamaha QL5.
The main arrays were supported by four Nexo LS18 subs, all ground stacked which provided extended low frequency response. On stage for monitoring Waters chose to use d&b speakers, powered by d&b D series amplifiers.
Project manager Wayne Jackson explained why Protec Europe chose the Sennheiser FBG3 wireless microphones. “They provide great robustness and quality. Also, when paired with our Omni head mics, they are an exceptionally reliable piece of kit.”
10 Clay Paky A.Leda K10 B-Eyes were the work horse of the show. Scott Bell chose the Avolites Tiger II desk to operate the lights based on its reputation for power, ease of use and reliability.
Overall, the project was a resounding success. It was a challenging event to pull off within a restrictive budget factoring in the logistics.
