Glasgow is the latest location for the development of McKenzie Group’s Academy venue roll-out. To supply and implement the audio infrastructure (as well as the video playback), MKG’s managing director, John Northcote, enlisted Shepperton Studios-based Marquee Audio. Marquee project managers, Spencer Brooks and Scott Wakelin, thus designed a reconfigurable system that would service all the venue’s requirements.
For the video, Marquee installed two 42″ plasma displays and a Sanyo projector in the Mezzanine room, Relaying show shots from the camera which occupies a fixed position at the stage. A further 42″ plasma screen is also situated high up in the VIP Room, with source selection, via a Kramer VS-5×4 matrix switcher, between the stage camera and DVD or video playback devices.
