Once again for 2007, Springfield Technical Community College elected to hold their commencement at the newly renovated Mass Mutual Center Arena and Zasco Productions was chosen as the integrated turn-key production contractor for the event.
2007 was the 10th consecutive year that STCC has chosen Zasco Productions to provide services for Commencement and was also the 40th Anniversary Commencement for the College. In fact, Zasco Productions helped pioneer this production concept with STCC in 1997, for the 30th Anniversary of the College, and has continued to build upon that foundation over the past 10 years.
This year, we provided concept to completion production services ranging from design and drafting, to providing the production equipment and crew for the event.
The backdrop for the stage was a white cyc which allowed us to theme different parts of the event using lighting. The stage was flanked by two 15'x20' screens which were rear-projected using 10,000 lumen large-venue video projectors.
Our 4-camera "I-MAG" production was displayed live on the screens, which allowed every member of the audience to see the entire ceremony clearly, and provided a spectacular close-up shot of each and every graduate as their name was called.
In addition, we also provided a separate switched recording of the event, making DVD's available to the students.
Crystal clear, highly intelligible sound for both the arena and stage was provided using the latest JBL Vertec and VRX series line-array loudspeaker technology. Extensive planning, and engineering of the system enabled us to deliver exceptional sound reinforcement in this large, and very reverberant space.
We congratulate the Class of 2007, and STCC on its 40th Anniversary. Thank you to STCC for entrusting the Commencement Ceremony to Zasco Productions for the past 10 years, and we look forward to continuing our production relationship.
