Victoria Theatre Halifax Makes Sound Investment with Allen & Heath dLive, via A.C. Entertainment Technologies
UK – A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET) has supplied an Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing system to the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, for use on its diverse programme of live shows and events.
Built in 1901, the 1,512-seater venue provides a sensational theatre experience and caters for everyone; from no-holds-barred rock & roll, chart-topping pop, sumptuous ballet and opera, to cutting-edge comedy, fantastic family shows, musicals and not forgetting the annual pantomime.
After servicing them well for nearly 20 years, the theatre were looking to upgrade their existing analogue PA system and mixing console to a new system which would enable them to harness the very latest advances in digital sound reproduction and manipulation.
Steve Eaton, senior sales executive in AC-ET's dedicated audio division visited the venue for a site evaluation to assess their system technical needs. Based on their console input, output and audio network distribution requirements, as well as the processing power and flexibility that were required for the differing types of live shows, Steve knew that the fully featured Allen & Heath dLive S Class S5000 console and DM48 MixRack system would be a great solution covering all bases for them.
The AC-ET audio supply also included NEXO GEO M6 main house PA and D.A.D (Dynamic Audio Device) Touring / Fusion series monitor speaker systems, which are controlled by the dLive system.
Victoria Theatre's technical manager, Oliver Brown commented: "The dLive console is definitely proving to be the right choice for our needs. Combined with our new speaker system, the audio quality is first class and the user interface is very intuitive. It's also very fast and easy to operate, and offers an exceptional level of flexibility to tailor the setup for different events. The console is a great investment and we are really pleased with it."
Allen & Heath's dLive premium console family is designed specifically for professional applications and installations. As well as a choice of the full size S Class and more compact C Class ranges, each class features a variety of control surface frame sizes and MixRack I/O, but all with the same processing power and channel/buss count.
