Protec covers massive 30,000sq.m site at Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival

Protec pulled off one of its most demanding production support challenges, at the recent two month long event Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival in Abu Dhabi.

We provided a cutting-edge sound and lighting package with a myriad of integrated features, including 40 live interactive shows daily in ten dedicated souks, time-coded fountain and firework displays, while delivering site-wide announcements ranging from emergency messages to call to prayer.

They invested heavily in Electro-Voice SX3000 loudspeakers, which lined up alongside L-Acoustics K2 and JBL VerTec 4889 line arrays, and placed everything on a dual-redundant Optocore fibre network, centrally controlled.

For lighting they deployed a wide range of mission-specific fixtures including Clay Paky Super Sharpys and Studio Due CityColor washes.

In addition Protec supplied a separate sound system for Union March, a one-off event within the festival, which was attended by a host of dignitaries.
