We also set up JBL VRX line array speakers on the sides of the room using our Global Truss ST132 tripod crank stands to get them high in the air. JBL VRX subwoofers provided extra low end in the large ballroom creating more dramatic and dynamic sound for video and music cues. Audio Technica podium mics, along with two Shure Flexi-Mic podium mics were spread among three podiums on stage. QSC K10 speakers were placed on stage as floor monitors for the presenters.

For lighting we rigged ETC Source 4 lights along 15′ truss towers in the back of the room for a long even stage wash. We also provided three of our Source 4 Pars as back lights for the speakers on stage. We set up 20 of our EchoCUBE Battery Powered Uplights to illuminate the large muslin backdrop we set up behind the stage with the football team’s gold color.

At the tech table we used the Behringer X32 digital mixer for audio. We also set up our Shure QLXD4 wireless microphone distro rack and our Shure UHF-R wireless microphone rack for dependable and clear wireless audio. For video we used our Analog Way QuickVu video switcher and a Qlab laptop for video playback.
