Swank has been providing event technology services within the hotel, resort, meeting and conference center industries since 1937. They provide top-level production for all events at the Grand Ballroom, which will be the location for the 2011 Oscars press event.
The 16-box NEXO GEO S8 system is hung in the Ballroom on a case-by-case basis, depending on each show’s design. « We chose the GEO S because we needed a system that was tailored to what we do the most – medium-sized corporate events, » states Ryan Gollner, Assistant Director of Audio Visual Services, Swank AV. « We’ve been hooked since last year, when our Technical Director Maurice Sams showed us what the system could do. »
The rig consists of 7x GEO S805s and 1x GEO S830, with two B-12 subs per side, controlled by two NX242 processors. « They sound great in the Grand Ballroom and provide excellent coverage. Our clients always comment on how clear the audio is. »
