David Guetta, Louvre Abu Dhabi

David Guetta, Louvre Abu Dhabi

Fans from across the world celebrated the start of 2022 with the superstar International DJ and producer David Guetta, with a spectacular streamed show at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. A custom-built stage was constructed in water against the backdrop of the museum’s iconic dome which is surrounded by the Arabian Gulf Sea. Creative Technology (CT) supported the stream for the New Year’s Eve show on behalf of our client LouvreAbuDhabi with the support of David Guetta’s production team.

Our solutions consisted of 10 camera channels, Panasonic and Sony remote heads mounted on Furio and Junior 5 systems, a further cineflex gyro camera, two drone cameras and over 2km of signal cable was installed by our CT team of 15 engineers over 3 days to provide viewers coverage from every angle. Complementing our site wide broadcast video set up we also supplied a bespoke RIEDEL communication system.

To ensure fans had the best view, 10 camera channels were used to provide coverage from every angle. For the broadcast we setup on a Furio rig. A custom made track was created which followed the circular stage shape providing 280 degree coverage to ensure close up and wide angle shots could be taken. Two Panasonic remote heads were located at close proximity next to David Guetta’s consoles to provide DJ desks view during mixing. Additional Junior 5 rig was used to for the front location to fill any possible shoot gaps. Cineplex camera with remote system was mounted on a boat to cover wide angles of thestage including the Louvre in the background. Two drones flew over the setup providing shots from above.

Artur Kurowski Project Manager comments, “We are very proud to have delivered the David Guetta spectacular from one of the most iconic venues in the world – Louvre Abu Dhabi. We had a fantastic team of 15 engineers working over 3 days to ensure the stream was a huge success. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Louvre Abu Dhabi and we are very thankful for the great opportunity.”
