las-tresLas Tres Puertas live performance set in RTVE’s Studio 6
Spain - National state-owned public-service television broadcaster RTVE recently teamed up with Antonio Banderas’ television production company, Teatro Soho Televisión (TST), to produce the 10-episode series of Las Tres Puertas, a new arts and culture show for its flagship TVE La 1 channel.
Presented by María Casado, a distinguished journalist and news presenter, and a key member of Banderas’ production team, the show featured guest interviews with luminaries from the worlds of culture, science, politics, business and sport, together with live performances by artists from Spain and around the world.
The weekly programme was produced live in RTVE’s Studio 6 in Sant Cugat, just north of Barcelona. A striking feature of the production was the stark visually arresting set, the appearance of which changed every week. In keeping with the set design, the sound stage required an especially low-profile, high performance PA system.
Sound designer Roc Mateu and Amate Audio’s industrial designer Guiu Llusà worked together, specifying a fully self-powered, self-processing system comprising latest compact, point-source models from the Amate Audio Xcellence series.
“For the main PA, two of the new X102FD dual 10” systems are pole mounted on X18T subs,” says Llusà. “They were chosen for their small size in relation to their quality and power.”
Additionally, five of the latest X14FD low profile, single 14” coaxial models are deployed in floor-monitor mode. A dual-purpose design, the X14FD is both a highly effective FoH cabinet and a premium performance monitor system, featuring Amate Audio’s latest Active+ integrated self-power and 64 bit DSP system management platform. “These were chosen to test the application of Amate Audio’s latest on-board technologies in a high-performance floor monitor,” continues Llusà. “In particular, the Active+ system preset phase aligns the X14FD perfectly with the X102FD main PA systems, and provides enhanced voice control with zero microphone feedback issues.”
“One of our goals at the show was to make artists feel comfortable when they performed on our set,’ says Carmen Escalante, executive producer, Teatro Soho Televisión. “Amate Audio systems provided us with that confidence; good sound and versatility that the artists have appreciated.”
