Superb Symetrix DSP is the Match for ‘Phenomenal’ Thai Live Production
Thailand – The story of the Mahajanaka and its central message that perseverance is integral to achieving Buddhahood is one of the most sacred texts in the Buddhist religion. It has been told in many different ways over the centuries, but for a spectacular recent live production in Thailand, the country’s long-serving monarch, H. M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, called for an interpretation that would be easily intelligible to contemporary audiences.
The result was a multimedia spectacular founded on the contribution of Mr. Team Productions and Fuzion Far East Limited. Utilising a variety of cutting-edge A/V equipment, Mahajanaka the Phenomenon Live Show helped to mark His Majesty’s 87th birthday and was staged at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre besides the Lake of Benjakiti Park from 1st-20th December, with 200,000 people spectating.
Free to attend, the hugely popular show made use of six core audio brands – Symetrix among them. A Symetrix SymNet Radius 12x8 open architecture Dante-scalable DSP and single SymNet xOut 12 expander delivered robust, reliable processing throughout each and every performance of the 75-minute show.
For Mr. Team Productions, Pok Sutat Kohkiat explains that the company has been using Symetrix products consistently since 2001 and had no doubt that one of its favourite models from the range – the SymNet Radius DSP – would again prove the match for the demands of this high-profile production.
“The key features of SymNet Radius 12 x 8 that have particularly impressed me are its scalability, networking capability, vast choice of modules, and its excellent sound quality,” he explains. “Once again, our customers loved the performance that this Symetrix DSP provided.”
Alongside the Symetrix DSP, the other fundamental parts of the Mahajanaka the Phenomenon Live Show audio specification included DiGiCo digital mixing consoles, a NEXO loudspeaker system, Camco amplifiers, Sennheiser in-ear monitors and wireless microphones, and Genelec monitors.
Public reaction was reportedly enthusiastic to a production that delivered a very special treat for its 20th December performance – a special jazz set featuring world class musicians such as guitarist Larry Carlton, vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur and guitarist/singer John Pizzarelli. For this performance, a separate FOH and monitoring system featuring two DiGiCo SD8 consoles and 24 NEXO PS 15 speakers was drafted in before the stage was reset for Mahajanaka the Phenomenon Live Show.
