Hosted at ADNEC, this 51st UAE National Day took the audience on a generational journey of the United Arab Emirates' (UAE) inspiring pioneers as viewers were transported from sea to space. The audience followed the story of a group of children who learn about the UAE’s rich culture, present day achievements and its future goals and ambitions. The main show took place on December 2nd followed by 9 days of shows attended by the general public, which were filled with live performances that paid tribute to the UAE’s past and the vision of its forefathers. Learn how Multiverse® Wireless DMX/RDM and RadioScan® Spectrum Analyzer were used to provide wireless DMX/RDM for this one-day event in this City Theatrical case study Q&A with People's Production Manager, Nick Read.
"We were very pleased with the scans we conducted with RadioScan. The Encore Global team set up a two-universe Multiverse wireless DMX system that was very robust and worked the first time. The only issue was a swamped 2.4GHz band. RadioScan helped us identify areas of the band that we could use for transmitting output. After that, the show went ahead and looked spectacular! We could not have achieved the effects we were after without your Multiverse wireless DMX system, and insights from RadioScan."

City Theatrical Employee Spotlight: Naum Bronz

We had a Q&A with our Mechanical Engineer Naum Bronz from our Manufacturing Department in February 2023, to spotlight the great work he has been doing for City Theatrical for 27 years, and learn more about his experience working with the company. Learn more about Naum in our Q&A, or see him and the manufacturing team at work in our recent Manufacturing Top Hats video.
