Commercial Surround Sound Cinema South West
As a supplier of outdoor cinema events, we were approached early in July to supply a Surround Sound Cinema for a short film premier to be held on Dartmoor. The London based production client required a 5.1 surround system for an estimated audience of 300 that needed to be set up and taken down quickly within a town hall giving the invited guests a full cinema experience.
The setup provided gave them a simple 5000w system which was easy to set up and operate, including:
- 2 x 12” full range speakers for the centre
- 2 x 12” full range speakers for the front left and right
- 2 x 18” Bass bins for the Sub
- 2 x 8” speakers for rear left and right
- Fully programmed digital sound deck
- 3 x stereo amplifiers with built in limiters
- 1 x Blue-ray player with individual audio outputs
- 1 x Microphone
- 1 x main distribution board
- All required cables.
Pre-event training included: As part of the hire, we set the system up in our warehouse and gave them full instruction on set up and operation including instructions on how to fully set the surround configuration.
Thoughtful additions: As an addition to the system itself we took the time to include a microphone, routed to only the front speakers, giving the producer the opportunity to introduce the film.
Digital mixer control panel: This picture shows the control panel of the digital mixer. The top row of controls allows the customers individual control over the 5 individual parts of the system. Centre, front left, front right, Sub and rear.
The second row gives them a master volume, mic volume and mute.
“Ripple Events were not only helpful and knowledgeable, but went above and beyond to offer us AV support before and during the event. The overall service was fantastic, the equipment was in great working condition and well maintained, and Rob even suggested ways to improve the overall delivery of the show using the equipment. I could not recommend Ripple Events highly enough for their expertise and level of service. If you decide to use Ripple Events in future, you will not be disappointed.”
This system is available for hire throughout the South West as a 5.1 5000w system or as a 7.1 6000w option. We are able to offer a dry hire service to our trade account holders or a delivered and setup option to all clients.
In addition to the sound we can also offer screen and projector hire to complete the HD cinema experience.
