The Forty Two crew braved the elements of a typical cold and rainy spring afternoon in Northeast Ohio to build the Youngstown State University graduating class of Spring 2022 an unforgettable experience. We provided the Stageline APEX 3224 mobile stage as well as Nila Arina 6500K TV wash lights, cable ramps, StageRight decks and risers, and more. Many of our team members are YSU Alumni, so it’s always our pleasure to work with the University on events and installations.
In addition to providing staging and lighting for the ceremony, we provided video production and livestream services so those who could not join the graduates in person, could tune in from afar. For video, we used Blackmagic URSA Broadcast 4K camera bodies with Canon J22ex7.6B4 WRSD SX12 22×7.6 lenses, creating a high definition live stream experience.
With assistance from the Local IATSE 101, we suspended a custom JBL Line Array system to cover the the seating area for the graduates as well as their guests, seated in the bleachers of the iconic Stambaugh Stadium. Some of the gear used for this project were JBL Professional VTX V20 line array speakers and JBL Professional Vertec VT4880 subwoofers.
