7thSense scoops Venue Project of the Year at Install Awards 2018

Media server specialist 7thSense Design has been honoured in the 2018 Install Awards.

The Install Awards, now in its fifth year, recognise excellence across the AV industry, particularly focusing on the best products and projects from the past 12 months.

7thSense were awarded Venue Project of the Year, winning for its work on the Christmas Spectacular starring the Radio City Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

The Spectacular, which has been running since 1933, underwent a major tech revamp prior to its 2017 season. The upgrade featured a state-of-the-art video system with 12G-SDI fibre content delivery to an 8K x 4K LED wall, and 14K x 14K projection mapping across a 34,0000 sq ft (3158 sq m) ceiling.

To meet the demanding and ambitious project goals 7thSense developed new technologies and software features that are capable of supporting a workflow that sees the media server system delivering 11.2 billion pixels per second to the projection system.

The company worked closely with project leader the Madison Square Garden Company as well as project partners Batwin + Robin Productions, Christie, Coola Boola Technology Solutions, DWP Live, Obscura Digital, Pro Sound & Video, and VER, to transform Radio City Music Hall into a digital winter wonderland.

36 Christie Boxer 4K30 projectors were also installed, alongside 34 7thSense Infinity Media Serves, each outputting two channels of single mode fibre 12G-SDI at 4096 x 2160 60fps 10-bit 4:2:2 resolution, into an Evertz EQX 12G fibre router and EMX multi-viewer system, offering A-B source redundancy with clean switching and monitoring.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have had this project recognised with such a prestigious accolade", said 7thSense MD Matt Barton. "It's a real testament to all those involved."

The company also served as a key project partner on an additional project recognised at the Install Awards. Tech consultancy TEECOM received the Visitor Attraction of the Year award for the 2017 upgrade of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. 7thSense handled the tech upgrade, including a new media serving solution for the digital Morrison Planetarium.
