Pipe and Drape Systems – Stage and Theatrical Drape

Angus Audio is proud to announce a new distributorship with QSD. QSD is a Canadian owned theatrical drape company based in Alberta that has been manufacturing custom drape solutions since 1987. They not only do theatrical drape but also manufacture other industrial solutions for manufacturing and health care industries.
We have already started a few projects with QSD and have been impressed by their speed of manufacturing and getting the product into the hands of our clients. Extremely customizable items are pretty standard in this industry. QSD tackles everything we throw at them with accuracy and speed that is demanded by the theatrical and touring industry.  

Call us to talk about new projects as well as replacements for aging or damaged drape. We can also provide solutions for portable pipe and drape systems.

Back in stock are the Decimator Design MD-HX and the newer MD-LX. These devices are some of the best built and customizable SDI to HDMI cross converters around. HDMI in and SDI output or SDI in to HDMI out. We have been using the MD-HX for years and they continue to be a great tool that can fix most problems in the HDMI realm. Using two of the MD-LX can convert your HDMI down to flexible SDI cable, run 280 ft and then convert back to HDMI. Struggling with HDMI cable lengths? These fix that.

We recently completed a brand new in ear monitor rig for Aaron Marshall’s progressive metal band Intervals. This system was ready to go for their current North American tour this fall and will continue on to Mexico in February.

The system is made up of 2 shock mounted SKB racks housing Sennheiser G4 IEMS, a custom Rapco 32 channels splitter and a Behringer X32 Rack with S16 expansion head. The custom patch bays were made with MIDI, USB and Firewire ports for connectivity to the X32 and the DAW rack mount units. The racks are connected with 2 multipin cables that jump between the racks and the feed to FOH console. The project was spear headed by Chase Robbs, who is on tour as the FOH technician and tour bus chef.

 

We recently worked with University of Waterloo’s Communication Arts Department to upgrade the 402 seat Theatre of The Arts. The UW theatre program mounts some of the most imaginative and cutting edge productions in the area and requires technology that is versatile and easy to manipulate. This theatre has undergone several upgrades the past few years including new catwalks, new Elation Pro SixPar 300 LED pars with RGBWA+UV colour mixing, a Behringer X32 for FOH audio, HME Wireless ClearCom and now new speakers and amplifiers from Dynacord and Electro Voice.

The theatre space is essentially in the round with seating right up to the edge of the stage. This proves to be difficult to get even audio coverage over every seat. The new Electro Voice EVC 1122-VI was chosen for its unique ability to have massive horn coverage based on the height it is mounted at. Tilting the box in the bracket allows the coverage area to be tuned right to the front row of seating. University of Waterloo’s Gill Lesperance and Cameron Jolliffe completed the installation in record time, including the new wiring and amp racks mounted in the catwalk.

 

 

 

In addition to the 4 main FOH boxes there were 8 Electro Voice Evid 4.2 speakers installed. Combined with 4 Dynacord L1300 amplifiers this enables 8 channels of surround sound rear fill audio. Using the X32 USB interface card and Qlab 3 allows sound effects and soundscapes to fully cover the theatre.  4 of the Dynacord 1300s are installed on the catwalk being monitored via the MARC software. The 1122- VI speakers are powered by 2 Dynacord L2800 amps running in the control booth.
