Once again TEC provided sound, lighting and video for Freshers Address which is an event hosted by Nottingham University and the Students Union that officially welcomes the thousands of new students to the university and student life. This year provided us with a new challenge as the event now has a much more corporate feel.
The key to the sound system was providing an even, clear coverage of the large sports hall. We did this using Nexo alpha as the main front of house system and Nexo PS15s as delays.
Video was done in collaboration with Nottingham University Television Station (NUTS). We provided the screens and all the switching capability for the various inputs required.
1kW profiles were used for the stage lighting wash and artistic effects were created using Martin Mac 250 lighting fixtures. We also gobo-washed the room and lit drape and impact sails to create the atmosphere required.
