The Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is an annual event in Australia and is similar to the US show, it has been growing steadily over the past few years and is now extremely popular especially with children.
As usual, this eighth edition delivered live musical performances from some of people's favourite local and international celebrities, but this time on a stage enhanced with special visual effects from media servers running ArKaos MediaMaster.
Lighting Designer Francesco Calvi has been using ArKaos since years at numerous television shows in Australia, this time he chose to set up two servers running MediaMaster Pro. The first one pixelmapped over 320 LED tubes and the second one providing visuals to the Video Tiles mounted on the Truss Arches above the stage.
Despite the fact that the show is aimed at young people, the production vlaues are still very high, which is necessary to attract a wide variety of celebrities that will have to perform in some unusual circumstances.. For example, the most popular part of the show is the slime; a green ooze that gets sprayed in new and crazy ways over audience and on-stage talent..
Nickelodeon KCA production had not used a media server on their previous shows and they were really impressed with the flexibility of MediaMaster. They especially loved the ability to change, colour and affect the vision very quickly and easily directly from the console without having to go back to the graphics department.
This year again, the Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards was a huge success.
