Creative Technology (CT), part of the NEP Worldwide Network, has seen its UK and Northern Europe offices invest in KAIROS, Panasonic’s revolutionary IT/IP-based video production platform that’s set to change the industry. “We’ve been developing an IP strategy at CT for a number of years, but until now we haven’t had a platform that enables us to manage the exciting transition from baseband SDI to IP routing,” said Sid Lobb, Head of Integrated Networks & Vision at Creative Technology. “We see KAIROS enabling us to do just that.

Roma Musical Theatre in Warsaw has long been at the forefront of Poland’s musical theatre scene. The venue regularly invests in the latest equipment to maintain its competitive edge as a technical leader, the latest example being a new audio system – including intercom solutions from RTS, supplied by Polish RTS partner Audio Plus.
The theatre stages one play per season, which is performed every day, often to a packed house. As the most famous musical theatre in the country, the staging of these performances breaks boundaries and sets the direction for professional theatre in Poland. “In order to efficiently produce such spectacular musicals in our theatre, many components are needed, including a failure-free intercom system,” says Wojciech Kępczyński, Artistic Director of Roma Musical Theatre. “A stage manager producing such a large performance does not want to spend his time thinking about communication with an actor or the technology deployed. The system must run smoothly, otherwise the production and the lives of the actors or stage technicians are in danger.”

More and more artists want - and currently need - to live stream their concerts. In the Dutch market, a Music OB truck with high standards was not available until now. NEP has closed this gap with the MusicOne. The 12-meter long and very spacious truck is equipped with a soundproof sound control room, a production suite that can be converted into a video control room, and a roof terrace that can be used for stand-ups with the event as a backdrop or as a chill-out area. The mobile sound control room can be used anywhere in the world with a connection to NEP’s centralized production platform and is suitable for any formation and genre. Good acoustics are very important for the sound engineers' work, but space in a mobile truck is always a compromise.

Maximizing visitor engagement is one of the most important goals of major sports venues and will become even more necessary as stadiums are held to limited capacity for the foreseeable future. Stadiums may be limited by the number of fans they can hold, but a quality visitor experience remains essential to strengthening patronage, encouraging recurring attendance and driving food and beverage sales – these are the objectives that led AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, to recently upgrade its entire digital display network with more than 1,000 LG commercial displays.
