Ü10 audio control room

Equipped with Lawo mixing and control systems, Ü10 is the latest OB to join the fleet at German TV production service provider, Studio Berlin.

The UHD/HDR OB is designed as a trailer with space for up to 26 people to work, and has already proven itself, successfully providing live production for the German Television Awards (RTL) on its maiden voyage. In the future, Ü10 will be used mainly for the production of the German Soccer League (Bundesliga).

Ü10’s Audio Control Rooms are equipped with a Lawo mc²56 production console and an mc²36 all-in-one console respectively, powered by redundant A__UHD mixing cores and a Lawo VSM control. Planning and construction of the vehicle was accomplished by German system integrator, Broadcast Solutions.

Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts

In 2008, the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts (SBCPA) completed a renovation of its 95-year-old, 1,500-seat Granada Theater, a venue, regarded as ‘one of the greatest in California’ by Ocean Way Audio founder and record producer Allen Sides. The work saw renovations to stage, lighting, rigging and artist facilities.

Last month, the theatre unveiled a new sound system from Ocean Way, able to distribute 90° of audio in both horizontal and vertical planes, something not possible with a conventional line array. The system proved its worth at its Grand Opening and first post-pandemic public event, a Mariachi opera entitled Cruzar la Cara de la Luna by Los Camperos a week ago.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a comparative latecomer a in the Disney catalogue in being adapted as a stage musical. Now the story of three wartime evacuees and their fantasy adventures has made it to theatres with a world premiere tour of the UK and Ireland. Sound designer Gareth Fry chose a Yamaha Rivage PM10 mixing system to bring the magic to life.

The multi-Olivier and Tony award-winning sound designer of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The Cat In The Hat, The Encounter and Black Watch, among many shows and exhibitions, Fry had watched the development of Yamaha’s Rivage PM series since attending the 2014 Rivage PM10 launch in Tokyo. With the implementation of key theatre features in a recent firmware update, he was ready to specify it for a touring production.

After a break inflicted upon it by the coronavirus pandemic, the pioneering Newport Jazz Festival returned in a big way in 2021, with enthusiastic fans filling Fort Adams State Park and a new take on its FOH and monitor set-up.

Established in 1954, Newport Jazz has hosted breakthrough performances from jazz artists John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday as well as The Allman Brothers Band, The Jeff Beck Group, Frank Zappa and a 1969 show from Led Zeppelin that nearly prompted a riot – not today’s average jazz festival.

Wired and wireless microphones and IEM solutions from Sennheiser are regular factors at concerts by Gentleman and his band. For his performances, Gentleman (Tilmann Otto) uses an SKM 6000 handheld transmitter fitted with an MM 435 head.
