Our implication

Go multimedia has been involved in this project from the very beginning. We participated in the production of the construction program that led to the architectural competition and continued through the design, execution, construction and final delivery phases. We assisted professionals in defining the layout of the hall and stage as well as the electrical infrastructure. We also designed and specified the lifting and stage dressing systems and multimedia systems. We also accompanied the professionals in the application of acoustic solutions for the room and its related spaces.

Two balls in space!

 

Project description

No, this isn’t the title of a doubtful 80s movie or a new kind of ice cream. Since April 2013, two domes have grown next to the Olympic Stadium. Once inside, you can go to the ends of the universe. You’re skeptical? Go sit comfortably in one of the armchairs perfectly angled to allow you to enjoy this immersive journey. We’ve thought of everything so that you, the viewer, can be impressed. Thanks to 4k and 2k resolutions, you can almost touch the stars. And just like in Star Wars (please pardon the pun!), There are sounds in space. Many sounds. The immersion is complete!

In this beautiful month of July 2015, the Planetarium has finally received the long awaited (since the opening of the place) LEED NC Platinum certification level. Congratulations on a great reward!

Our commitment

Being the type of project we do only once in our lives, we made several international trips to visit various planetariums and soak up their unique niche characteristics both in terms scenography than technological. The planetarium alone allows an accurate reproduction of the starry sky as seen from Earth, and this for both hemispheres. Close coordination was needed with all professionals and entrepreneurs throughout the project to ensure that no part of the universe was forgotten.

Multidisciplinary in the service of art

 

Project Description

OMG! What a big word … The kind of word that’s impossible to say without tripping. Yet that’s exactly what’s involved with the Phi Centre: Multidisciplinary! We worked with Phoebe Greenberg and her team in the establishment of a superb art center that combines movies, exhibitions, panels and live performances of all kinds. Not to mention that the entire center can be transformed into an audiovisual recording studio where established artists have already enjoyed the cutting edge technology of the facilities. Theater, art gallery, recording studio, video post-production, webcasting: multidisciplinary.

Our Commitment

We worked on the overall implementation of the scenographic spaces and the media and technology concepts. We made ​​sure that every room could communicate. For this, we have developed a refined communication network allowing all the weariness sought out by the operator. Particular attention was given to the tight integration of infrastructure and its equipment. A good example is the swivel wall panels which have the dual function of providing two acoustic choices (absorbs or reflects) and hiding all the interconnecting wiring and multimedia network.

 Some Highlights

Broadcast live events and on-demand by “multicast”
HD capture and video recording
Multi-channel server room
Remote management systems
2K cinema room that can stream content in “7.1 surround”
5.1 audio recording studio
Auditorium with 5.1 sound system

Everything’s ready

 

Project description

There it’s done. Quebec has finally its amphitheater to be able to compete with the Bell Centre in Montreal. And no, despite this introduction, we are talking here of a multifunctional place for up to 20 000 spectators and not a competition between Bell and Videotron call centers. Videotron Centre is an amphitheater with a high-performance technology infrastructure and a multifunctional structural environment allowing it to easily change volume to adapt to different programs (music, sports, theater, television). Whether it’s technical premises, access to technical spaces above the ice, public circulation areas and reception areas of the spectators, all these volumes, and many more, have been thought to offer what is best in the entertainment and cultural industry.

Our implication

The challenge of this project was enormous and, to soak up the philosophy and technological characteristics necessary for a multifunctional arena of this size, we visited various famous amphitheatres; Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center, Montreal’s Bell Centre and Saputo Stadium and Amsterdam’s ArenA. Our work started immediately upon completion of Technical and Functional Programme with responsibility, as a consultant in scenography and multimedia, to identify the needs of this new place. So we wrote prescriptions for a main PA system, the main scoreboard, the power rings display, a large rigging system and a video broadcast system.

Some hightlights

27 capture points
HD broadcast and video editing
Motorized LED display scoreboard
40 zero fleet electric motors for all the scenic dressing
8 clusters of loudspeakers
2 LED rings for advertising
Centralized automation system
Large outdoor LED screen
Multi-viewer display system
Fiber optic distribution and connection solution
Sound systems in all the public circulation areas
Unique audio and video control room in Quebec province

We have faced several different types of challenges during the project; the technical ceiling and the motorization of different equipment above the technical grid, achieving a video production facility used as much for the scoreboard as for the broadcasters and integration of mechanical ventilation in the structure of the scoreboard. This ballet of integration and complementarity between the different types of equipment have increased the complexity of the design.

For the creation of video production infrastructure, Videotron Centre needs to accommodate a range of broadcasters for a wide variety of events. We therefore oriented toward an innervation 100% digital on fiber covering all the levels of the amphitheater and defined by two separate systems. A system associated with production management for the scoreboard and a system for broadcasters. The use of digital and fiber has quickly emerged to respond perfectly to the use of capture points required by the customer, the NHL and HD television broadcast in real time.

An incubator for creation
 

Project description

Wanting to ensure that it remains competitive and to prepare tomorrow’s musicians for today’s music industry, the Université de Sherbrooke directly called upon the services of Go Multimedia to assist them in the design of their new recording studios as well as their teaching facilities.

We collaborated with the project team on issues of work ergonomics, scenography, acoustics and everything related to audio and video technology in the two major studios. The School of Music is equipped with a unique, state-of-the-art digital audio infrastructure. Its various creative spaces will be interlinked to offer students the greatest flexibility imaginable.

Through the multiple control rooms, it is possible to capture the sound of all the spaces dedicated to recording. In addition, some rooms are equipped with audiovisual recording systems to offer teachers and students a quick and easy way to record their performances.

Our implication

Creativity was the biggest challenge of this project. The technological and pedagogical will was well beyond the allocated budgets. Multiple control rooms, studios and practice rooms had to be linked together in order to multiply their use and maximize their occupancy. Intended for music students and not studio technicians, the systems had to be simple and educational, while reflecting the reality of tomorrow’s professional world.

We opted for IP digital audio solutions that allow us to decentralize the recording equipment and turn it into an extremely flexible and reconfigurable system. This has enabled us to set up a maximum number of services with a minimum of equipment. In addition, the spaces are connected to a video distribution system in order to allow music productions to be made on screen and thus ensure visual links between artists during recordings.  Finally, the particularities of the production workstations mean that users can, depending on their level of knowledge, configure their work sessions according to each use case.

Some highlights

Multiple control rooms
Interconnected studios and practice rooms
Unique digital audio infrastructure
Individual configuration of desks and work sessions
