London based AV and technical production services company Presentation Rentals Ltd. (PR) has become the first UK company to offer an all-White d&b Audiotechnik sound system in its rental stock, which is being used to service its busy ongoing work schedule.
The initial 'PR White Series' speakers comprise d&b T10s and B4s, which make an ideal system for high profile small to medium events, and join PR's extensive d&b audio rental stock.
PR has made the move after recent work in many venues in and around London - including art gallery and exhibition spaces - which are clean, white and airy, lending themselves ideally to the aesthetics of a white audio system. The same is true of marquees and other tensile structures, which are also usually white-based, however the new system looks equally appealing and sounds excellent anywhere with a good design and atmosphere.
Explains PR's MD Ian Coull, "White is cool and contemporary. We are working increasingly on prestige events like fashion shows, corporate networking sessions, brand experientals, cocktail receptions, etc., that are staged in these spaces, where black speakers and stands would just grate against the environment and look completely inappropriate."
With the quality sound and streamlined design lines of the d&b speakers already established, the next logical step - to PR at least - was to offer them in white to production companies and clients.
The beauty and flexibility of d&b's T10s speaker design enables it to be rigged either vertically or horizontally as a point source fixture, arrayed in clusters or line arrayed - making it absolutely ideal for the diverse range of PR's work and applications. They have had all the necessary rigging accessories factory-finished in white, and can also supply wiring, including XLR cabling, in white.
All PR's speaker and amp stock is d&b. "We're huge fans of the brand," says Ian Coull adding that the build quality is "Superb" and the thought that has gone into the design and rigging options is "Very impressive - setting the brand apart from its competitors".
Already with the White System onboard, inquiries are coming from production companies specialising in yacht parties, plus corporate hospitality and presentations during premium locational events like the Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix, etc.
Very recently the White speakers were in action for a lavish party aboard a super-yacht moored in Monaco, where they were utilised in the reception area and on the nearby helipad, used to stage a major artist performance. PR also supplied a d&b system for the main party area, with DiGiCo desks used throughout .
The White speakers are also a perfect complement to PR's constantly expanding stock of white and chrome lighting fixtures, which is being increased steadily for the same reasons.
In addition to the White d&b investment, PR has just taken delivery of a quantity of channel 38 compliant Sennheiser 2000 Series mics and 2050 in-ear monitor systems, again reflecting an active summer and autumn.
PR offers a single source technical production solution and works extensively in the corporate world, supplying production equipment to conferences, roadshows, exhibitions, music concerts and other special events, including parties. This latest investment upholds the company's policy of offering clients a series of unique, high quality and bespoke options.
