Northeast Media Services provided a JBL VERTEC line array system for Massachusetts General Hospital’s 200th anniversary celebration.

NORTHRIDGE, California – Massachusetts General Hospital celebrated its 200th anniversary with a huge gathering of members of the hospital and medical community on Friday, September 16th at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. To support the celebration, which included an appearance by Henry Kissinger and entertainment by the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra, Northeast Media Services deployed a HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® line array system.

Since 1811, Massachusetts General Hospital has been a leader in innovation and medical leadership. To celebrate the bicentennial event, the hospital transformed the Convention Center with a large projection screen imposed on three walls of the main hall from top to bottom. For sound reinforcement, left-right hangs of six JBL VERTEC VT4888 midsize line array elements each were used as the main PA system, with seven sets of four VRX932LA Constant Curvature speakers for center fill, out fill, and delays. Eight SRX712M’s were employed for stage monitoring and the entire system was powered by Crown Audio I-Tech and Macro Tech i Series amplifiers. To manage the system, three dbx 4800 processors were used with HARMAN’s HiQnet System Architect™ software.

The main challenge of this event was enabling the audience to fully see the video projection screens without any visual interference from the sound system, while still providing proper audio coverage throughout the space. “The VERTEC line arrays sounded terrific and worked perfectly with the accompanying VRX932LA’s to provide a visually discreet but high-impact audio system,? stated Wayne Strauss, President at Northeast Media Services.

“Everyone gave compliments of how nice the venue was set up and how clear the sound was, especially with so many people conversing,? Strauss said. “It was a remarkable event and I’m glad that we were able to be a part of this memorable experience.?
