Roger Waters’ legendary live performances are renowned as immersive sensory experiences featuring high class, state-of-the-art audio/visual production and breathtaking sound. Us + Them is no exception: following months of meticulous planning and visionary craft, it will inspire audiences with its powerful delivery. Waters is touring a large-scale production including jaw-dropping spectacles, flying scenic elements and multi-dimensional laser effects as he performs classic Pink Floyd albums alongside his new material and past solo hits.

Waters puts an old-school touch on his rock spectacle with a laser-light show during his performance of “Dark Side”. The arena is filled with colorful lasers lights and dry ice smoke to illuminate a giant, multi-dimensional laser pyramid. For one of the coolest rock visual effects of all time, the overhead rigging system is fitted with winches that house several laser units which communicates with additional laser units on the ground. During Waters’ second set, a row of 16 TAIT Rollios extend out, above the audience, dividing the arena into two sections.

Entech Roadshow to debut in the US

Posted on Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Innovative and highly successful expo format from Australia spreads to the US.

A new touring roadshow featuring dozens of lighting, audio, staging and vision brands rolls out through selected US States in September. Using the highly popular ENTECH format from Australia, ENTECH ROADSHOW USA is a partnership between Cary, N.C.-based Production Media Inc, a popular entertainment media company, and JuliusMedia Group from Sydney Australia.

For 19 years, the ENTECH has been an unmissable event for exhibitors and visitors alike in Australia. In its Roadshow format it is popular with visitors because its ballroom-sized footprint avoids the miles of aisles of a big tradeshow, and the one-day format respects the time constraints of most A/V technicians, designers and integrators, allowing them to meet the key people from major brands, and see the latest technologies.

Exhibitors love the convenience, with no extra costs. Everything is bundled together with all freight travelling in dedicated trucks and delivered on to each stand. Traditional ‘gotcha’ add-ons like shipping, drayage, power, furniture and even drinking water are provided, along with parking. Major brands in Australia have come to rely on the Roadshow to ‘bring the show to the people’ in major cities. Traditional large-format shows feature a high home town attendance, with many trade unable to justify the cost and time to travel.

Focusing on a series of key markets, the inaugural Roadshow travels to Convention Centers in Richmond VA, Charlotte NC, Atlanta GA and Birmingham AL across a compressed two-week period in September, 2018.
