VUE Brings State-of-the-Art Immersive Sound to Historic Bojangles’ Coliseum

Boasting an incredible 60-year history of sports and entertainment, Bojangles’ Coliseum has played host to events ranging from Led Zeppelin to Sesame Street, Rev. Billy Graham to Ray Charles, and Les Misérables to the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers. The city of Charlotte, NC, approved a $16 million budget for renovation of the venue, including new seats, updated concession stands and club areas, a new scoreboard and video display and, of course, a new sound system comprised exclusively of VUE Audiotechnik’s al-Class loudspeakers.

WAAPA UPGRADES MUSIC BOX THEATRE WITH VUE AUDIOTECHNIK

With state-of-the-art performance and teaching facilities, the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) is one of the most successful and renowned arts training institutions worldwide. Based at the Mount Lawley Campus of Edith Cowan University, WAAPA is home to a variety of performance studios and theatre spaces including the newly refurbished Music Box Theatre — a space which received a new VUE Audiotechnik PA system designed by Amber Technology and installed by Sinclair Communications. The PA system includes al-4 Subcompact Line Arrays, al-4SB Flying Subwoofer Systems and V4i System Engines.

SORIA MORIA GETS NEW VUE FROM THE GROUND UP

Built in 1928 as a Christmas gift to the residents of Torshov, a borough of Oslo, Norway, the historic Soria Moria building complex has since served as a cultural hub for cinema, music, theatre and literature. In 2014, co-owners Karl-Henning Svendsen and Olaf Masterman Loly took over and refurbished what would become HVASKJER Torshov, the restaurant/music venue inside Soria Moria. Loudspeakers from VUE Audiotechnik became an integral part of the renovation.

HVASKJER Torshov combines a restaurant with a wood-fired grill; beer, wine and cocktail bars; a dancing area; two concert venues; and an arcade/gaming room. Drawing on his previous experience with other venues in Oslo, Loly called upon avon lydinstallasjon (AS) to handle the installation. “We chose avon as our integrator of sound and lighting systems because they have delivered good, reliable systems in some of our other venues here in Oslo,” says Loly. “We have a good common understanding of doing business, plus avon has good references in other venues throughout Oslo and Trondheim, which is important to us.”

VUE al-4’s Inspire at Las Vegas Valley Bible Fellowship

Myriad terms have been used to describe live audio systems, but rarely has anyone chosen the word “inspiring.” But that is exactly the word that JP Dutton, worship director for the Valley Bible Fellowship used to describe the VUE Audiotechnik system recently installed in the house of worship’s main sanctuary.

The church recently turned to H.A.S. Productions to install a new system based around the VUE al-Class and moved their full-scale Pennsylvania–based competitors rig that had been in the room into a separate youth room. “This new system is so clear and present that it has changed everything for the worship team. There has not been a single service where I have not been stopped by members of the congregation and told not only how great it sounds but how clearly they could hear each individual instrument. I was so inspired to sound as good as possible that I even went out and bought a new guitar.”

VUE HELPS SPREAD THE WORD AT CROSSROADS.TV CHURCH

When Crossroads.TV Church moved to a new facility—the former home of a multiplex movie theater—in Lancaster, OH, it was clear the expanding congregation would benefit from a new sound system. Having already worked with the church on the audio install at their Lithopolis, OH, campus, Crossroads.TV entrusted Dave Lowery and Matt Price from Sound Inspiration LLC (Columbus, OH) to design and deploy the new PA featuring VUE Audiotechnik’s al-4 Subcompact Line Array System

The PA system requirements at Crossroads.TV Church are unlike those of a “traditional” house-of-worship audio install. Crossroads.TV’s progressive Weekend Experiences feature loud, edgy music intended to attract and speak to younger generations. The new VUE system is able to accommodate those needs while maintaining clear sight lines from all areas of the room.
