Top London Nightclub Fabric Upgrades To BSS Audio Soundweb™ London

Succeeding in a fixed installation that provides a major upgrade to the quality of its networked audio, London nightclub Fabric has chosen to upgrade its three legendary dance rooms with BSS Audio Soundweb London devices. The system was sold through Harman’s UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd.

“The original Soundweb devices gave us great service but we realized that the available technology had become far more advanced. Processing speed is a lot faster, and the new devices have a much greater capacity,? stated Sanjeev Bhardwaj, head of technology for Fabric.

The new system consists of a BLU-160 and pair of BLU-120 devices in the two main rooms along with a pair of BLU-BOB output boxes, and a BLU-160 and single BLU-120 in the third room. All three rooms are fitted with password-protected BLU-10 programmable touch screen remotes for local control.

France 24 Upgrades With Trio Of Vista 5s

International news and current affairs TV station, France 24, has purchased three Studer Vista 5 consoles — all of which have been installed over the past two past months.

The Paris-based channel was launched in December 2006 to broadcast French news throughout the world in French, English and Arabic. It immediately became so successful that today it broadcasts 24 hours a days in French and English, and ten hours a day in Arabic (with Spanish due to be added shortly).

Former Roxy Music member Brian Eno celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, by introducing the first of two live performances of his 1983 composition Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks in the IMAX Cinema at the Science Museum in London.

Mark Hornsby’s company Headtec were appointed by the Science Museum to provide the sound, and Icebreaker’s FOH sound engineer Alexander Bossew requisitioned a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console as his first choice.

“I specified this, because it is so easy to produce a warm sound without having to EQ like mad,? he said. “Also the few compressors that I used were working very discreetly.?

Bossew admits with only time for a quick run through ahead of the performance — rather than full rehearsal — there had been little time to purpose-configure the desk, which was plugged straight into the cinema PA. However, this hardly concerned him more
