AVIOM PRO64 SYSTEM KEPT THE MUSIC SPINNING FOR THE ON-STAGE PRODUCTION OF “BUDDY – THE BUDDY HOLLY MUSICAL”

aviom_buddy1.jpg

Presented at Colosseum Theatre in Germany

Aviom’s Pro64® audio networking gear provided the audio connectivity for the live production of “BUDDY- The Buddy Holly Musical,” which ran for a limited time at Colosseum Theatre in Essen, Germany.

The unique design of the turntable-inspired stage complicated the audio system design by requiring that all audio signals be fed through the center of the stage via a single Cat-5 cable. The Aviom Pro64 network not only solved the cabling problem, but also simplified the design and provided the versatility and professional-grade audio quality required for the show. more
