The Brisbane Broncos Rugby League Football Club Ltd’s season launch used event technology service provider, IKONIX to deliver an intimate event that made use of Brompton processing.
Commonly referred to as the Broncos, the Australian professional rugby league football club is based in the city of Brisbane, QLD, and the season launch event is a mainstay of the team’s foundation for the year, giving the club an opportunity to announce new players in addition to the coach speaking to the media and fans.
“The Brisbane Broncos launch event reinforces the club’s ethos and the team’s plans for the new season, so it’s an important date in everybody’s calendar,” said Zachary Burton, director at IKONIX.
“Our team has been working with the club for a number of years, supporting productions of different scales of highly polished events. This year was no exception.”
The event was held at Brisbane's music venue, The Tivoli Theatre, nicknamed The Tiv.
“With its stunning art deco features and the old-world charm, The Tiv offered the perfect spot for an intimate event for 350 people, which wouldn’t be possible in a larger venue due to Covid rules constantly changing,” explained Burton.
The situation in Australia was still very much restricted at the time of the Broncos season launch event, with many events being delivered virtually. For the IKONIX team, this was the perfect opportunity to build trust with the audience and work with a new social-distancing system.
As part of the stage design, the team opted for a ‘forest’ of LED strips allowing them to build sections individually and safely.
“We used 60 1.2m ROE LED Strips, all powered by Brompton processing,” said Burton.
Having already used Brompton’s Tessera LED processors on many live shows and events, there was no question of using any other LED processing solution but Brompton.
