Since I was at college we all had to be a part of this event, but since I knew the guy (James Boyd – InlineAV) who was supplying all the video equipment for the event and the live broadcast I gave him a hand.
The first day started at InlineAV were me, James and George loaded the van and the trailer with all the screens, and cable cases.
After it was all loaded safely we made our way to the college
Then after we arrived we unloaded everything from the van and trailer into the room where the event was taking place.
After all of this, I started by moving all the broadcast equipment upstairs where it was all going to be set up, I was put on broadcast sound since none of the 2nd years wanted the role. I also was monitoring the stream to make sure it was all ok during the event. Because the FOH console was not the same model as mine it meant that I couldn’t just grab all the inputs via AES50, but because nearly all the inputs were wireless I just tuned some spare Sennheiser Receivers to the same frequency as the receivers that FOH was using and turned of pilot tone on my ones so it would not interfere, This worked well. I also added in some ambient mics around to capture the background noise of the event.
After a couple of days of rehearsals and fixing camera and surface issues everything was working and we were ready for the event. Here are some photos of the event.
The next day after the event was packing everything down and putting it back in cases ready for loading the van and trailer again.
