A staple on the ULTRA event calender is the boxing event held at the Wynberg Military Sports Center. With Damascus promotions at the helm, an update on the technical requirements was requested. A 9m x 9m box truss was suspended over the ring, providing both a visual centerpiece and a practical solution to position show and broadcast lighting and video screens. Power was supplied by an ULTRA 3 phase generator, and distributed throughout the venue according to show, broadcast and catering requirements.
BRANDS THAT RECENTLY TRUSTED ULTRA WITH THEIR EVENTS
Ultra Events was proud to once again be involved in the GenRe annual conference, this year held at the Vineyard Hotel and Conference centre. The 2 day conference opened with welcome and introductions after which the room dividers were closed, creating 3 presentation areas with a variety of speakers presenting. Each room had a Christie LHD700 projector and a Roland V60HD to handle all the visual content. while JBL Prx612 speakers, Soundcraft mixers, and Shure wireless microphones took care of the audio solution. On the 2nd day all 3 rooms merged into one large room to end of the conference with a bang.
EDM DANCE EVENT
ULTRA Events was extremely excited to be at the helm of the technical production for the Spilt Milk edm dance event that was held in Paarden Eiland. A D&B audio solution was chosen based on the modelling and prediction software that maximized the design options. The final solution, based on the prediction software, consisted of D&B V8 mid-high speakers and B22 sub woofers, with 4 x J Infra subwoofer extending the low frequency response of the system. A 6mm LED video wall was used behind the DJ incorporating a Christie 14K Roadster projector completing the 3d visual effect. A number of Robe Pointes, 600 LED washes and Martin 101 lighting fixtures were used along with 40 Martin Sceptrons to tie the lighting and visual content together.
