Dubai-based event company DLC has upgraded its technological arsenal to include water screen projection equipment from French company, Aquatique Show International.
The water projection screens and dancing water systems will be available in the GCC through DLC from October 2009, and will be locally supplied in partnership with the French company.
Aquatique Show International technology involves the creation of a translucent screen, which is produced from water vapour by a submerged system. Three dimensional images and graphics are then projected onto the screen, and are usually complemented by a surrounding network of fountains.
The screens have previously been used at the Dubai Shopping Festival, and internationally, at the Chateau de Versailles, Disneyland and Sea World in the USA.
In addition to the aquatic display systems, DLC has also expanded its AV technology for events on dry land, demonstrating its amphibious nature by purchasing 28 new Clay Paky lights (16 alpha washes and 12 alpha spots), and a new conference system from Danish Interpretation Systems.
“In addition to our existing simultaneous translation booths and kit, we have made a substantial investment in world class conference technology,” commented Lorraine Ludman, owner of DLC.
“The system is fully digital, and uses infra red transmission to produce clear wireless sound, regardless of the size of the venue,” she added.
Ludman said that following the recent technology upgrade, DLC would not be purchasing any new equipment in the immediate future.
