NEVER MORE LIGHT
Entire technical realization of Boka night was done by Podgorica company PG Sound in cooperation with the company Studio Berar from Novi Sad. One of the owners of PG Sound Obren Tosic said for Vijesti that they have placed 170 kilo vats of light which for a long time hasn’t been seen in such an event.
We started this pioneer action beside the claims that the sea cannot be illuminated, that you can’t place such a big screen on the water etc. The screen a bit less than 60 square meters has the biggest resolution which exists in the world at the moment. The sound system was 40 kilo vats strong, and the biggest problem we had was how to connect all of that with electricity – said Tosic.
Of how big and what kind of technical equipment we are talking best speaks the record that entire equipment in Kotor came with a 20 tones heavy truck as well as with two trucks of 6 tones each.
