Let’s Celebrate 2019
This year’s countdown show “Let’s Celebration 2019” was held for the very first time at the Promontory in Marina Bay. It was a celebration of music, a fashion show and Augmented Reality all rolled into one Live show. Augmented Reality was made possible in collaboration with CGang and ITE,
The setup of the performance stage took more than a week. It involved the laying of platforms, the building of the canopy, the construction of the concert roof and finally the deployment of the HD truck. More than 40 technical colleagues and their supporting teams were involved in the setup. Two LiveU units were also required to cover countdown parties at the Float and Clarke Quay.
The AR mermaid
The AR mermaid took four ITE students five months to create. A workshop was conducted at our Studio 4 by an AR technology expert from Zero Density, on the fundamentals of AR for Live production. The team also spent a day on field at the Promontory for position matching and plotting. View the video to see the AR workshop and the setting up of the Live AR production on site.
What’s behind the party?
Twelve cameras were deployed; five on tripods, two RF units for handheld and Steadicam, one robotic camera mounted on the roof, one on 40-feet jib and one on 18-feet jib. For the AR camera tracking device, one was attached to a camera on tripod while the other was attached to the 18-feet jib.
The audio section includes the broadcast mix, the music mix, the stage monitoring and the FOH using consoles from Lawo, Yamaha, Digico and Digi Design.
The lighting comprised of two MA lighting controls and over hundreds of moving heads and LED fixtures.
