The conversion of Britz Castle in Berlin-Neukölln, Germany, into a new cultural centre, was recently completed, and includes a 300-capacity concert and theatre hall, installed with Allen & Heath’s iLive digital mixing system.
The spec was for a future-proof digital system that could easily be used by sound engineers of guest productions. It also needed to be portable to service not just the hall but other areas in the venue, and flexible and simple to configure, with the option to have wireless control for smaller events.
The iLive system comprises a Dante-enabled iDR-32 MixRack with iLive-T80 Control Surface, plus a PL-10 rotary panel for remote control. iLive’s competitive price, built in compressor and EQ, as well as the possibility of the live recording of events via a laptop through the Dante interface, were the main reasons it was selected.
Dirk Förster from installation company, System Integration Berlin, commented: "iLive meets all requirements and expectations. The system is light weight, which made the installation easy, and has amazing technical flexibility.”
