The Concert Hall of Örebro in Sweden recently underwent a major renovation including an overhaul of all its AV equipment and the purchase of two Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing systems.
The refurbished venue now includes state of the art sound technology, based around two dLive S5000 Control Surfaces with DM32 and DM64 MixRacks, with three DX32 expansion racks to provide capacity for visiting orchestras or other productions with larger channel counts. dLive was chosen because of its flexibility, high bus capacity, powerful 96kHz sampling rate, multiple networking options, and the possibility to expand and connect to other visiting systems.
Established in 1932, the Concert Hall has great historical significance in Sweden, and is the home of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. The venue also hosts a variety of visiting acts, including rock and pop bands, orchestras and stand-up shows. TV and radio companies, such as Swedish Radio, regularly attend key events, requiring broadcast feeds.
Designed predominantly to manage FOH and monitor sound in the main hall, the system is flightcased and mobile, so that it is also ready to manage events staged in other areas of the venue, such as the restaurant or Grand foyer.
“As there are many different concerts and events held at Örebro Concert Hall, dLive’s workflow is ideal because it lets you get started quickly and focus on what’s important – great sound - regardless of whether the show is a stand-up act or a full orchestra,” explains production manager, Daniom Michael. “The dLive system provides perfect service for visiting TV and radio broadcast companies, and when the Hall has multiple artists performing, they now have the possibility to send to 5 different systems via MADI, Dante and other networks.”
