Stage Electrics Equips the Stamford Shakespeare Company Ahead of its 50th Year
UK – Stage Electrics have supplied the Stamford Shakespeare Company with a new Altair wireless communication system ahead of their summer season of plays. The Stamford Shakespeare Company is an amateur theatre group, who perform at the distinctive Rutland Open Air Theatre, within the grounds of Tolethorpe Hall, Stamford.
Requiring a new wireless comms system ahead of the 2018 season, the Stamford Shakespeare Company enlisted Stage Electrics for guidance. “The client approached us with an idea of what they wanted. We discussed several different comms systems but settled on Altair’s WBS-202HD dual channel wireless intercom system,” commented Jonty Gray of Stage Electrics.
The WBS-202HD offers a secure communication between the base station operator and a maximum of eight wireless beltpacks. “The client specified that they needed the ability to allow the backstage crew and lighting technicians to communicate via different channels. This communication system allows for two operating modes. Either they can have all beltpacks on one radio wave or four on one and four on the other. Simply, allowing the two different teams to communicate individually,” Jonty reported. “Regarding the actual beltpack itself Altair’s WBP-210HD and WBP-212HD were the clear solution as they have both been specifically designed to offer outstanding performance in outdoor applications” he added.
The Stamford Shakespeare Company, home to some of the best amateur Shakespeare performances in the county, have recently opened the doors for their 2018 string of summer performances. “We are pleased with our investment, this wireless comms system is easy to use and offers great cross-platform compatibility,” reflected Grant Witton of the Stamford Shakespeare Company. “We regularly buy from Stage Electrics; Jonty and his team are very informative. We’re looking forward to this summer season of performances with the aid of our new equipment.”
