Norway - Norway’s Design & Architecture (DOGA) foundation has recently undergone a total renovation of the audio system in its historic machine hall (built in 1898), with a compact Allen & Heath dLive set-up.
The foundation strives to strengthen the presence of design and architecture in Norway, promoting innovation and quality when developing products, buildings and services. Its facilities are regularly rented out for a variety of events, covering conferences, seminars, concerts and screenings. As such, Allen & Heath’s Norwegian distributors, Benum Norway, were tasked with the installation, which required a simple, flexible and transportable sound system for the 340sq.m hall.
The full set-up comprises a dLive C1500 surface paired with a DM0 MixRack (fitted with a Dante card), an IP8 and IP6 remote controller, and a DX168 expander for additional remote I/O. Providing an easily transportable and customisable system meant that DOGA could switch between set-ups in a matter of minutes, depending on the event requirements.
“Working in the event business, we have a lot of different clients with various backgrounds and technical competence. Our goal with this installation was to transform our main space (Hallen) into a flexible and straight forward room to rent and using the dLive C1500, made it even more so,” explains Torstein Strand (technical manager / event coordinator at DOGA). “dLive has such an intuitive interface, it makes every process easy and efficient – it’s the perfect fit for this installation.”
Strand adds: “dLive also has some great advanced features; for example, I personally love how easy it is to route signals using the touchscreen, how intuitive the interface is and the quality of FX you have. The drag-and-drop feature when using the Strip Assign is also something that I’ve not experienced before, but love. It’s perfect for all types of people, whether with technical backgrounds or not, and that’s exactly what we were aiming for.”
The IP8 and IP6 remote controllers provide an easy to use solution for clients with limited engineering experience wishing to control the mix themselves and can also be used in place of a dLive surface, for events that require a small footprint with surfaceless control via the IP controllers and dLive’s Director app.
