Case Study: National Reality TV Awards
When NRTA’s events department were looking for a safe pair of hands to provide event production for their star studded awards ceremony HAV were selected to provide full audio visual support.
Attended by stars of X Factor, Britains Got Talent, The Voice UK, Big Brother, Love Island & Dragon's Den the awards ceremony took place at the stunning Porchester Hall London. We provided a beautiful and impactful solution backed up by a team of on site technical experts to run the show.
A large central awards stage set was erected centrally in the room, flanked by 2x satellite projection screens to the left and right of the stage area to ensure all guests had a clear view of the awards content. The set was lit using high power LED pixels with event logos & branding projected onto the wings.
High power short throw HD projectors were used to minimise ‘dead space’ in the room & ensure all content was clear & bright. Professional switching equipment was utilised to allow a seamless switch on screen between live event camerawork & nominee/winner slides & video content which had been provided by the client.
Lighting design included the aforementioned LED pixels, on stage & around the room providing vivid colour, combined with spotlighting for the stage. A combination of moving head effects incorporating both wash & beam were used to add atmosphere during the awards.
A large PA system & multiple microphones were specified to cater to the sound requirements of a variety of live music performances by bands, solo acts & djs.
An 8 man team of audio visual technicians including sound & lighting engineers as well as stage assistant, camera operator & project manager ensured every cue ran to time, the audio sounded great & lighting looked stunning.
