Night of a Thousand Stars


The key technical challenge for this event was that the entertainment focus could be on any, or all, of the three stages around the West Ballroom. In fact, the entertainment for the evening began out in the foyer, with the band leading the guests in. The event producer, e=mc2 Events, asked Proshow to design an audio system that could accommodate several MC’s on different stages, with the action bouncing from one side of the room to another; as well as large performances on a single stage, or multiple stages within the same hit.


We designed a comprehensive audio system that allowed us to adjust the orientation of the sound. This meant that when someone was presenting on the west stage, it sounded to the 900-strong audience that their voice was coming from the west side of the room. So, when a second voice sounded like it was coming from the main stage to the south, the audience instinctively knew where to look to follow the action.

We built the solution with multiple—individually controlled—line arrays. Using SMAART, a tool that allows us to analyze the acoustics accurately in real-time, we were able to EQ and time-align each array, then create a snapshot dedicated to each ‘room orientation.’ Each snapshot included its own routing and time alignment, recallable at the touch of a button, which produced the effect of the sound source changing direction around the ballroom.
