Continuing one of the nation’s most time-honored holiday traditions, Production Resource Group (PRG) deployed

JBL’s

new subcompact VerTec® line array system to highlight musical performances during the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in New York. With performances by Mariah Carey, Josh Groban and Susan Boyle, along with an appearance by the Radio City Rockettes, PRG ensured the bundled-up crowd was completely immersed in holiday entertainment. Staged on Tuesday, November 30, the Tree Lighting Ceremony featured the traditional large tree, a 74-foot Norway spruce, with 30,000 LED lights on five miles of wire. Ground-stacking four JBL VT4886 subcompact line array elements on top of two VT4883 subcompact arrayable subwoofers with arrays positioned on each side of the stage, PRG turned the world-famous ice rink into center stage for the national live telecast of the Tree Lighting Ceremony, which aired on NBC as part of the “Christmas in Rockefeller Center� special. “JBL VerTec line array systems have been the reliable, go-to system for our annual work at the Tree Lighting Ceremony as well as other major projects around the country,� said Bob Rendon, vice president of PRG. “For several years, NBC has trusted our rigs to entertain the excited guests surrounding the center and we rely on JBL speakers to ensure everything is perfect.� “The event was a complete success,� continued Rendon, “Our VerTec line arrays always perform to expectations. They provide the perfect fill and coverage for the rink area and really allow the performances to be enjoyed by the hundreds of viewers in the sunken area underneath the tree.� For more information on PRG, please visit
