WorldMUN Gets Social with Mackie HDA
Singapore - July 14, 2011 - - In 1991, a group of Harvard University students joined together to create a new and different Model United Nations experience, inviting 300 college and graduate students to join together and participate in conferences and debate on pressing international issues. Two decades later, the annual WorldMUN conference has grown to become a week-long event, with more than 2,200 college and graduate students from more than 65 nations attending the 2011 conference in Singapore.
At this year’s WorldMUN, Singapore-based Mastana Entertainment provided high-end audio and video systems for social events throughout the conference, including a massive Mackie HDA-based sound system for the WorldMUN 2011 Ice Breaker Party at the Greek Theatre, at the foot of the iconic Singapore Flyer.
The system was centered around Mackie HDA two-way 12-inch powered line array cabinets, along with HD1521 15-inch two-way powered loudspeakers. The system was augmented by 18 SRM450 two-way powered loudspeakers, with low frequency reinforcement handled by Mackie’s HD1801 powered subwoofers. Pioneer and Denon DJ gear and an Allen and Heath console completed the system.
WorldMUN was the most recent in a series of events that has seen Mastana Entertainment grow from a modest startup company to one of Singapore’s leading events services companies. As Surinder Mastana, the company’s Chief Engineer and Event Consultant, explains, the Mackie gear has been a big part of the company’s growing profile.
“For us, it has been the realization of a dream to bring our own unique blend of music and mixes to the regional party scene, and having great quality equipment is a big part of our success,” says Mastana. “The Mackie HDAs are truly one of the best sounding powered array speakers available. They are so fast and easy to deploy – hassle free, plug and play, and their definition….simply wow! They sound incredible. We can’t wait to get more of them.”
