Comprising multiple Soundcraft Vi Series digital consoles, Crown’s new V-Racks with BSS Omnidrive HD signal processing and configuration and control via HARMAN Professional’s new workflow-based HiQnet Performance Manager™ software, this high-profile system deployment also serves as the European launch of JBL’s new flagship VTX line array series loaded with JBL’s revolutionary D2 compression driver to provide lower distortion and extended high-frequency response.
