After a great autumn season providing sound and lighting hire and crew for several corporate events and quite a few firework displays, its now time to start on our Christmas contracts. Amongst other commitments, we are delighted to be back at Planit Events Victoria Embankment site this year, providing sound and lighting for every event this season at this very prestigious central london venue.

This unique venue contains a high specification band stage with flown line arrays and cardioid-array subs at one end, and a full conferencing and awards stage set at the other, with a distributed multi-delay system capable of re-producing the sound from multiple lectern mics and tie clip radiomics with superb quality and level, without a hint of feedback.

The systems are all integrated with a multi-mix rack Allen and Heath iLive system, with all the audio being sent around the venue on CAT-5 cabling, networked to provide the most versatile solution possible.

all this, with a 1200 capacity dining space in the middle, and a multi-use bar space to the side, this season is going to be an exciting and challenging one!"
