The latest and greatest news from Dreamedia!
We have received the new Yamaha CL5 console which expands our premier audio system and completes our digital console inventory. We can now mix fully digitally with 72 input channels and 32 physical outputs. Paired with our M7CL we can now assure 100% redundancy in cable transmission, completely digital split system mixing, redundant consoles and channel for channel live recording capability. This is a touring grade product and the only system capable of multiple console digital networking currently in the territory. ..
Chris Torralba is the newest member to join our creative department, we welcome him into the role of Junior Graphic & Media Designer. Although Chris has worked in the industry for some time, he felt it was time to update his skills and knowledge, he did exactly that. Chris comes to us straight from completing his Bachelor of Creative Arts at Charles Darwin University in 2012. We are excited to be expanding this department and can't wait to see Chris's contribution to our creative processes. ..
Last August last year we realised that we needed another digital console as our Yamaha M7 was getting requested on most events...not that I was really that keen on spending any more money on audio gear, I began the process of chatting to sales rep's and didn't realise that there are so many choices out there....unbelievable!!!! I must credit Bruce Johnson with helping us make the final decision on this console. I umm and urr'd for about 4 months on this. I actually had my heart set on a profile but when Bruce learnt the type of shows we were doing and the gear list we had in our inventory, we all agreed the new Yamaha CL5 with 2 x RIO3224D remote I/O units seemed the perfect fit. With a three-section fader layout, 72 mono, 8 stereo input channels the CL5 this console is going to work well for us...and most important...it has lots or pretty lights (haha!) ..
Its very exciting time for Dreamedia.
New contracts, new events, new equipment....and look who's coming back to join the team. One of the biggest thrills for the team is our old french mate, Ben Thibaud is coming back from France to run our Uluru office. This is a total thrill for us. Ben knows the NT, knows how to run outback events, he understands design, flare and creatively, he understand account management...and he's a great bloke. Ben came to us 2 years ago as a backpacker passing through town. All the staff at Dreamedia are thrilled about his return to the company. ..
Dreamedia invests in 8 x Tower Lifters to the Hire inventory!
Last year we did many outdoor outback events
One of the hard things was hanging lights and getting the lights high enough.
These new lifters will add a new dimension to our capabilities in the bush. ..
WOW!!!! Dreamedia were thrilled to get the call to assist SBS launch the latest free to air station, NITV. Literally 5 weeks out of the launch of the station the phone rang asking if we had experience in organising remote Productions in the outback. We were asked to provide audio, lighting, vision, site management, event management and oversee all the OH&S protocols that come into play on an event this size. ..
12/12/12 was an extremely special day.
Not only because these dates will not occur for another century but because NITV and SBS launched their "From the Heart of our Nation" Concert.
Dreamedia was proud to take part in the special event in the Production, Staging, Audio, Lighting and Event Management of the concert. ..
Dreamedia Events were recently engaged to delver the audio, vision and lighting for 7000 pax at the the 2012 Darwin Christmas Carols evening at the Darwin Amphitheatre. It was a 2 day bump in almost 100% humidity at 34-35' degrees. OHHHHH! It was Hot. This year was exciting have 100 singers in the choir, 18 in the brass band, a house band and a A list of the NT's best singers. We used 16 Cabinets and 4 dual 18's for front of house and 8 boxes and 2 x double 18's as the delay system. A Yamaha MCL7 was out front and a Midas Sienna was on fold-back. We had to be careful in our design of the lighting rig due to is being the middle of the Dry season. We used 8 x 700 spots and 8 x 700 washes, 12 LED movers and about 16 generic lights for the front wash. We used a barco presentation Pro II as our switcher on this and recorded the show onto a grass valley Turbo. Mike V was on front of House, Rob was on LIghts, Chris was on switching and Josh Grant was on fold-back. For the first time in may years the event got rained out 5 songs into the night....so we never got to finish the show...but what the punters saw/heard...they were impressed with. ..
On the 17th of November the 2012 Tourism Brolga Awards were held at the Darwin Convention Centre.
Dreamedia had the honor of doing all the production audio, visual and lighting and presenting the awards.
The Brolga Awards had a variety of performances from a choir, to didgeridoos to a cowboy singing on a horse. ..
