Creating Vegas in Piccadilly.
We were given the challenge to create an environment that would both
dazzle guests and support artistes in delivering their best possible
With the eclectic nature of the performances, we needed something
that would provide exceptional vocal clarity as well as faithfully
reproducing both musical instruments and banging tunes from the decks.
The answer was a truly special Funktion One EVO 7 system that has
been wowing partygoers night after night, whilst outstanding on-stage
sound allows performers and DJs to give their very best.
The FOH system comprises 2 EVO 7SH speakers with augmented with F215
Low mid and Evo 6 EH rear fills, all underpinned with 6 F121s and
driven by FFA amplifiers - supported by an Allen & Heath DLive
CDM32, which acts as a control matrix for all the inputs as well as
outputs to be distributed around the venue. On monitors we have Funktion
One PSM 12 monitors also driven by FFA and paired with a with Pioneer
Nexus2 DJ setup at the front end, the system really delivers an
outstanding experience for all.
But a dazzling experience needs all the senses to be tickled, and to
this end we installed a fabulous and versatile lighting rig, special FX
and a rather lovely curved High Definition LED wall on the front of the
DJ booth. This is the crowning glory of the sensory feast that is Reign
The lighting is controlled by a Chamsys MQ100 with 12 5R Beam, 4 7R
beam and 8 'Aura' style moving heads, whilst special FX and sparkle
are provided by five CO2 cannons, three Stadium Shot confetti cannons
and six gold Sparkulars as well as custom Hand Held gold Co2 lances.
In addition we also designed and installed all the architectural LEDs
around the venue and provided two 5m long Matrix Light Walls.
This installation is something we are especially proud of,
particularly because it utilised all the wide ranging skills that we
have amongst our in house staff.
