QSC provided the audio system for the world premiere of Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” held at the Fantasyland Theater at Disneyland in late July.
The system for Disney was brought to fruition by a team of five QSC designers and technicians led by product manager and veteran studio/live sound system designer and recording engineer Jon Graves. Before the build, the team spent weeks designing and testing the system at an offsite facility, which helped expedite a rapid install over seven after-hours nights in the park.
“After we collaborated on the audio solution for the world premiere event of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ in 2019, we had no doubts about working with QSC for this blockbuster premiere event. They once again delivered a flawless system that brought our latest movie to life with unmatched audio performance,” says Michael Kern, VP, Special Events Production and Technical Services, Walt Disney Studios.
The system enlisted the Q-SYS platform for processing, routing and tuning, with the film’s screen channels supported by WideLine line array loudspeakers and Q-SYS CX-Q Series amplifiers. In addition, the system utilized theredundancy capabilities built into Q-SYS for processing, networking, and amplification, along with emergency analog failover.
“Whether it’s for a spectacular movie premiere with some of the biggest movie stars on the planet, or a crucial business meeting or intimate conference room call, we take great pride delivering innovative, flexible, and scalable solutions for a wide variety of high-value spaces, with the reliability and performance for which the QSC brand is known for,” concludes Anna Csontos, EVP, Chief Market Officer and Chief of Staff, QSC. “We are delighted to once again provide Disney with a larger-than-life audio system along with the dedication, expertise and passion that goes into every QSC solution and partnership.”
