Austage recently collaborated with the amazing team at Light Year Production and Alt/Shift to put on a rooftop drive in for Mazda, as part of the 25 year anniversary of the MX5.
The brief was simple.
“We want a drive in cinema.”
Our team in Melbourne put the 6mm VuePix screen to work. On the 14 February, a warm sunny evening in Melbourne, guests had no issues seeing the screen, even with direct sun beaming onto it.
With Rob Mills being MC, we knew some kind of musical component would happen, anticipating this we included our JBL audio system for an opening performance.
The challenge for this event was getting the audio streaming into each car, without having the ignition turned on. To do this, the team put 20 JBL Link 10 speakers to work. There was one speaker in each car. We were able to link all these together using our custom design WIFI network and casting software.
And there you have it, a classic drive in, just like back in the day.
