Novatech Brings ROE Visual to World Heritage‐listed stage
Now or Never, a new major festival in Melbourne, Victoria, took place at the Royal Exhibition Building, one of only a few World Heritage Sites in Australia. The stage was graced with the presence of ROE Visual V8T and powered by Brompton SX40 and 2 x XD, adding a touch of modernity to the timeless venue.
The NoN team appointed Gig Control Australia who together created an impressive 16m high and 6m wide screen that perfectly matched the venue’s size. “We are transforming this heritage‐listed building into a venue of the future,” says Elise Peyronnet, NoN Artistic director. “We are building a really massive screen to take advantage of the height of the ceiling, to use it as a canvas, to project onto it.”
This big semi‐transparent screen harmonizes modern and historical elements to showcase diverse styles of industry‐leading artists, adding a three‐dimensional perspective to each performance and enabling attendees to immerse themselves in the music while enjoying the beauty of this historical landmark.
As the trusted partner of NoN, Gig Control engaged Novatech to provide full turn‐key production for the series of events held in the venue. As part of the design process, Gig Control and Novatech selected the ROE Visual V8T (semi‐transparent screen) to merge art with technology. “Vanish V8T panel is a proven product that has been and is being used on a variety of corporate and concerts/festivals across Australia,” states Leko Novakovic, Managing Director from Novatech. “We have over 400sqm of V8T now, and are the only production company in Australia with the product.”
“It is definitely a multi‐sensory entertainment experience for everyone at Now or Never. We enjoy working with Novatech and thanks again for their trust and bringing us to a world heritage‐listed stage! Both of us share the same goal of delivering exordinary visual eﬀects to audiences and trust‐ worthy quality to customers. It is such a success and we can’t wait for the next one.” says Grace Guo, the sales director of ROE Visual.
