Transnet 150th Anniversary Celebration

AV Direct assisted Southern Cross Conferences in providing audio visual equipment for the celebration of Transnet’s 150th Year Anniversary.

The event took place at the Salt River branch in Cape Town.  The huge empty warehouse was completely transformed with layers of draping covering the walls and neat carpeting along the floor. AV Direct then flew a JBL VRX line array with SRX subs and front fills to round off the audio in the room. 4 large-format projection screens were then setup, projected onto via Christie and Sanyo DLP projectors.

A 16m truss beam was then lifted into the roof. Attached to this was 18 Versalite LED Pars, 4 BriteQ Moving Head Washlights, 4 BriteQ StageColours, 4 Martin Mac 250 Entours, 4 High powered Theatre spots, 4 OBY Moving Head Spots and 2 Profile spots.

Then a 3 tier stage was provided, cladded in white gloss sheeting for the speaker, band and choir. Either side of the stage was a truss totem rigged with Samsung 51″ HD screens, Futurelight scanners and LED washlights. A LED strip coloured set design was then used to create a backdrop behind the stage.

The event was hailed as a fantastic success and it could not be possible without the amazing team at Southern Cross Conferences, who organised catering, carpeting, decor, draping and managing the whole event.

A truss beam was place over hanging the bride & grooms table. We then setup beautiful chandeliers and decorated lights provided by Garth from Lush Flowers.

Around the room BriteQ LED lights were used to colour wash the overhead draping and dancefloor area.


In Loving Memory of Quinton Mario Raaff

The AV Direct team are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Quinton Mario Raaff on Tuesday, 15th May 2012.
To know Quinton was an absolute honour and if you had that great privilege, you too will be missing a friend.

What our clients had to say…

transnet 150th Plaque

“Thank you, thank you and thank you again for all the hard work and effort that was put into making the Transnet 150 Year celebration happen. I cannot stress enough how your assistance in putting together this event made me feel confident and so much more at ease, considering the short amount of time that we had been given.

In my opinion, the event was spectacular thanks to all you audio & visual expertise!

I look forward to working with you on the next project!”
