The event, attended by international news media, trucking industry analysts and officials, was conceived by OSK Communications out of New York, including the idea of projecting video on the wall of the Hoover Dam. SIAM Productions produced the overall event and tapped Creative Technology (CT) to deliver a video reveal and immersive sound to the audience. CT used three Radio Active Designs UV-1G wireless intercoms for the production.

“It was an incredible undertaking,” explains Danny Guerrero, systems engineer at Creative Technology. “There were 60 projectors set up in scaffolding more than 2,500 feet from the Hoover Dam. Each of the three viewing sites were equipped with sound. We ran from 500 feet to 5,000 feet of fiber to tie in all production and spectator sites; the entire event was really quite spectacular.”

CT utilized the UV-1G units to keep lines of communication open throughout the event. A total of 18 RAD packs were in use by production personnel. “Because of the size of the event, it was extremely important that everyone involved be in constant contact,” Guerrero adds. “Once the launch kicked off, it needed to go off without a hitch. The UV-1G Wireless intercom is a great product – we use them every day. I recommend them to everyone.”
