Dubai’s much anticipated traditional Emirati experience, Qasr Al Sultan, opened its doors on the 30th of January 2017 to a night full of entertainment powered by an outstanding audiovisual set-up supplied by Procom Middle East. Located in the desert of Jebel Ali, the new concept offers traditional performances, a grand food bazaar, live cooking stations, as well as a museum and a traditional souk.
The opening night boasted with live performances including the guest appearance of the Chehade Brothers – a Lebanese folk band made famous by Music Hall. K-array’s KH3 sound systems were requested specifically for this night. This digitally steerable system is equipped with K-array’s signature S.A.T. (Slim Array Technology) that makes up for impeccable acoustic outcome in terms of sound definition and noise pollution cancellation while being easily transportable, self-powered and easy to set-up and dismantle.
As for the fixed set-up, Qasr Al Sultan’s chose K-array’s KRX802. The powerful sound system, composed of six KX12 line array elements and two double KMT218 18” subwoofers, was attached using a FLY bar on a pair of Eurotruss ST Towers and installed apart in order to cover the full venue area. With Wide Mode on, this speaker system that has excellent size to power ratio and horizontal coverage is guaranteed to provide an optimal sound experience for this outdoor setting.
As for the front fills, four of K-array’s award winning Anakonda KAN200+ speakers were installed at the front of the stage. Chosen for their thin moldable shape, these speakers formed an almost invisible strip, filling the areas that the horizontal installation could not cover with the same powerful, impeccable acoustic.
Procom Middle East also drew on its wide portfolio of professional lighting equipment to supply the venue with its set-up. Philips Selecon’s fixtures provided the venue’s key lighting, while as Cyclops Lighting’s CL 350 and zoom 37 delivered the entertainment lights; all controlled with the lightweight Avolites Titan Mobile console.
The venue’s truss structure was built using Eurotruss TT, XT and ST robust aluminum trusses with their innovative conical connectors.
Procom Middle East’s partnership with MEERAS on this project was particularly productive – the developer’s high requirement of quality, esthetics, audio performance and equipment endurance was matched accordingly by Procom’s design, equipment choice and project delivery.
K-array speakers’ cutting edge technologies, impeccable sound and sleek designs made them the audio solution of choice. With several projects in the pipeline in Dubai and the region, Procom Middle East and K-array are set to deliver exceptional AV installations in the coming few months.
