DKSS keeps the show on the road in Midrand

South Africa:

Midrand-based technical supplier DKSS has created an in-house virtual studio to support clients during their Covid-19 struggles. While the company is not the first to embrace the livestreaming concept with a fully kitted out in-house space, DKSS is going one step further with Pop-Up – a service providing technical equipment and livestreaming solutions to events of 250 indoor guests or 500 outdoor guests, which can now take place in the country following the easing of lockdowns.

The in-house virtual studio has been created to replicate a TV broadcast space and consists of a 12m x 4m stage with a 13m x 13m curved Absen PL 3.9 Lite screen serving as the backdrop for content. Lighting includes 18 Robe LEDBeam 150s for fast beam wash work and 12 MiniPointes, useful when hosting a band or music production on stage. It can also can be set up as a hybrid event to accommodate a small, seated audience.

“Our saving grace has been the relationships built with our suppliers over the years,” explained CJ de Klerk and Warwick Lawson of DKSS. “Changing the look and feel of the studio is as easy as picking up the phone and requesting furniture, draping or a call to Fogtech for additional equipment.”

While the virtual studio currently has four events for the coming months, it's the Pop-Up service causing a stir. “It means that clients can choose to come to us, or we can go to them with our micro-studio solution,” added de Klerk. The company has already catered to two wedding parties, “One indoor and the other outdoor on a farm near Wonderboom,” noted de Klerk. “The guests, comprising of eight families, sat in their cars, similar to a drive-in scenario. They watched the ceremony via a livestream and would blow their horns as the preacher said something about the bridal couple. With the new regulations in place, the small wedding party will be able to sit inside the church.”
