Application Examples

Case Studies

TAF School of Modern Music - Spain

Spain’s School of Modern Music (TAF) needed a new FOH mixer for its concert hall, which hosts the school’s concert and theatre productions as well as for touring duties and TV show recordings. Located in Madrid, the centre offers a wide educational programme, focusing on practical experience and a detailed curriculum and requiring professional world-class facilities, staff and equipment.

Oley Valley - PA USA

Oley Valley High School is located in the Township of Oley, northwest of Philadelphia, PA. In 2012 the high school’s drama club won a prestigious award for the ‘Most Memorable Overall Production’. Due to the rapid growth of the school’s theatre department, the Oley Valley High School board made a decision to upgrade the mixing console from analog to digital.

Southampton University

Southampton Solent University embarked on a comprehensive upgrade to its television studio teaching facilities. New equipment was required for the TV control room, a movable PA system, and a studio floor FOH system. The new mixing equipment would need to fit into a Dante-enabled system to link across the separate areas, as well to other TV studios.

Bergen University - Norway
dLive, ME

Norway’s Bergen University recently opened a new performance hall, to provide a venue for live events such as concerts, conferences and graduations. Aula Hall’s popularity as a live performance venue soon saw the need for a powerful, flexible and compact digital mixing system that, in addition, could be run without a surface attached to deal with the wide variety of cultural events, debates and concerts.

Museum of Communications - Frankfurt

The Allen & Heath Qu16 offers everything we need for daily business.
We got stunning Effects and a very good sounding console as well as an Automatic Mic Mixer for the panel discussions.


Founded in 1815, the Cambridge Union is the oldest continually operating debating society in the world. The venue needed to install a new audio system as part of an AV refurbishment, including a digital console that inexperienced users would be able to walk up to and operate.


St. Joseph’s College is an independent Catholic School in Reading, UK. The requirement was to provide a high quality but intuitive audio system which could be used by staff and pupils alike.
