HARMAN Soundcraft Vi6™ Impresses at the Donaufestival

Donaufestival

KREMS, Austria — The Donaufestival is an Austrian festival of music and performance that takes place each April on the River Danube in Krems, in the state of Lower Austria.

Promoted by the NOE Festival-Ges for the past two decades, the festival showcases a wide range of artistry — from avant-garde rock, performance art and electronica.

This year for the first time the production brought in the Soundworx team of audio engineers, with Klaus Hübner on monitors, and Michael Schmidt given the task of piloting the house mix through a Soundcraft Vi6 — supplied by Redline Enterprise — over two weekends.

The FOH engineer, who had specifically requested the Vi6 after being introduced to the desk at the Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt, was gratified that so many visiting artists’ sound engineers also specified the desk on their riders.

Global Equipment Network, Inc. Delivers A Royal Listening Experience With Listen Technologies Solution

TLC Royal Wedding Viewing Party

Guests of the TLC Royal Wedding Viewing Party use Listen Portable Receivers provided by Global Equipment Network, Inc. to listen to the event in Times Square.

Jarrod Esposito of Global Equipment Network, Inc. knew he had the perfect solution when producers of the “Say Yes To The Dress? show on the TLC network approached him about providing an audio solution for a viewing party of The Royal Wedding in Times Square.

Producers were at a loss as to how they were going to overcome the New York City noise ordinance of no public address systems before 9:00 am. Not a good situation with the wedding festivities happening at 5:00 am.

What Esposito knew is that he could provide an individual listening experience to guests of the TLC event without breaching the noise ordinance. The producers were a little skeptical, especially with the need to provide a solution to 2,000 guests. Esposito was confident. He knew that not only could he deliver the solution for 2,000 people but that they would have a more
