omniline-web.jpg

Just in time for the Royal Wedding later this month, Westminster Abbey recently commissioned the installation of new speech reinforcement, induction loop and CCTV systems, along with ancillary video, audio and data distribution facilities.

The new systems were designed and specified by Audio & Video Systems Consultants, Michael Hyland & Associates, the project needing to be completed ahead of the thanksgiving service which marked the 450th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth granting a Royal Charter to The Abbey in 1560, not to mention the Royal Wedding.

The upgrade and changeover was implemented so there was no impact whatever on the building’s daily services and various other events for which The Abbey is used. Equally, steps were taken to ensure that the work did not infringe on the many visitors who tour The Abbey daily. Furthermore, given the tight timescale, extensive workshop testing of the system racks was more

Ozark Henry Tours With Two HARMAN Soundcraft Vi Consoles in Bespoke Design

Two experienced and respected Belgian sound engineers are currently taking their first ride on Soundcraft’s Vi platform and loving every minute of it.

Which is just as well, since the band Ozark Henry (which is also the stage name of founder Piet Goddaer) will be touring arenas up to 6,000 capacity in Germany and Benelux through the spring and early summer before playing a major part in Europe’s burgeoning festival scene — and finally continuing through 30-40 Benelux theatre dates in the Autumn.

Handling the FOH mix is Tom Janssen, who also happens to be the in-house head technician at Brussels’ popular circuit venue, Ancienne Belgique, while monitor man Marcel Cortleven has worked for many of the country’s leading bands.

It was Stef De Pooter, Audio XL Belgium’s general manager, who made the breakthrough. He knew that both engineers had worked extensively in other digital environments but more
