The 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets was recently celebrated in fine style at RAF Cranwell, where SES Technical overcame the challenges presented by an outdoor site of over 100 metres across.
For the second time, SES Technical provided Soundstage One with an impressive array of cutting edge and highly effective lighting and PA technology which successfully enhanced the day’s celebrations which included bands, orchestras – and compelling displays by the Red Arrows and the RAF Falcons parachute display team.
And, excitingly, SES Technical will again be to the fore on the same site for the forthcoming RAF anniversary – which promises to be a very large scale event.
The challenges presented by this comparatively large venue were overcome with a comprehensive array of lighting and sound technology.
Lighting control was achieved with the Avolites Titan Mobile which binds the power of Titan software with a compact and lightweight unit that connects to a laptop to produce a fully featured moving light control system.
The Yamaha CL5 digital live sound mixing console offers an evolved experience in accessible mixing, plus sonic purity with sound shaping capabilities that give the most imaginative engineer unprecedented creative freedom.
The audio lineup featured a Nexo STM speaker array. Suitable for any situation from a simple ground stack to a massive stadium system, STM makes it quick and easy to ‘clip together’ the systems needed for any situation.
“One day it could be for an event audience of 1000. The next day for 100,000. STM can be flown one wide, two wide or three wide on a single bumper. The facility to add a third hang of Bass modules creates a system of unrivalled power with massive LF headroom.”
