New Hire Inventory

We've recently added a large number of Nexo PS10R2 speakers to out hire inventory. These are suitable as a high powered speaker on stand system, or as a good compact stage monitor. They also dove-tail well as front fills for our GEO S12 systems.

The PS10R2 is a significant upgrade on the original PS10, itself an amazing compact speaker. They come as standard as left and right pairs, with integrated flying points for use with PS/GEO S12 rigging equipment. The NXAMP now contains DSP for the use of the speaker as a monitor as well as standard FOH duties. In common with the predecessor, the PS10R2 has a rotatable horn for FOH or monitor applications.

We've also added some more RS15 subs and S1210's to our stock of Nexo GEO S12 system. So in the week just ended we were able to service theatre venue seating 750 at one end of the country as well as a stand up hip-hop gig for 900 at the other.

We've also made the long-term rental of a second SC48 from SSE Audio permanent as well as adding some more SSE MB4 monitors to our existing inventory.

Greens choose Galway sound company
to get message across

Galway event audio company, Alex Fernie Audio Ltd, has been selected to provide audio-visual equipment and services for the Green Party’s annual convention to be held this weekend in Waterford.

“We’ve been working with the Greens on their annual convention since 2004, but it is always great to get the call – especially this year,” says company owner Alex Fernie. “Although it may not be on the scale of some of the larger Irish political party conferences, the leader’s speech will be broadcast live on RTE and there promises to be considerable interest from national and international media. We will be providing audio feeds for all print news and broadcast media, liaising with RTE and the outside broadcast company, so it’s a large undertaking”

It’s been a busy month for the Galway company, who provided technical management services to the Skyfest fireworks event in Limerick and who were employed to provide the audio at the press conference announcing Galway as the final port for the Volvo Ocean Race. “We were asked by Let’s Do It Galway’s event management company about a week beforehand – at first they wouldn’t tell us what it was about, it was that secret! We had cameramen, journalists and photographers from all over Europe on the day so it was quite a challenge to ensure they all had audio feeds to their TV cameras and other recording formats”

“We do a mixture of all types of all work – last week we did an electronic dance act for 400 people, the Fashion Innovation Awards and the Croi Ball, so it keeps things interesting. Obviously in the current economic climate, things are tougher but there are always events on around Galway city and county and further afield”.

So is Alex Fernie Audio Ltd a “green” company? “Actually we are! We’ve invested heavily in digital equipment over the past few years. Modern sound equipment is lighter and more compact so it costs less to transport. It is also far more energy efficient than older sound systems. We recycle all our office and warehouse waste, so I’d say we’re pretty environmentally-friendly, though there’s always room for improvement!”

New Optimism in Irish Corporate Event and Conference Sector

Galway event sound company, Alex Fernie Audio has reported renewed optimism in the 2010 corporate hospitality and conference sector. “Our website traffic is up 25% and enquiries are up 40% on this time last year” according to business owner and manager, Alex Fernie.

“Irish investment in infrastructure is now paying off. The opening of the new Conference Centre in September puts Ireland on the international map and will have a positive effect for events outside Dublin, as will the new road network”

“The new M6 motorway now allows us to bring audio services nationwide faster and cheaper than before. Also, the M6 means that Dublin head offices are now taking advantage of better value in Galway hotels for their corporate events”

The company, who supplied audio systems for the Volvo Ocean Race Gala Ball in 2009 and Guinness 250, will launch their 2010 Sound Support Scheme today. “This affiliate scheme allows gigging bands and event promoters to fix their audio costs for a year, with savings of up to 40%. Schemes such as this are ultimately great news for the concert-going public as it will allow a reduction in ticket prices”

Along with event audio services to the live music and corporate sector, Alex Fernie Audio provides a range of installed audio systems for the commercial sector. The company also does a range of cost-effective hearing loop systems for companies needing to facilitate staff and customers with hearing difficulties

“We are already planning recruitment for a full-time sound engineer as well as a sales executive to drive the expected growth in installed audio systems”

This message has been sent in the spirit of positivity and as part of Good News Friday – for one day bringing good news back into fashion.
