USA - This month, new and classic stars are performing at the iHeartSummer ’17 Weekend at Fontainebleau, Miami Beach, culminating in a TV special and live, two-day national broadcast across 130+ iHeartRadio stations, websites, and apps. Integral to the show lighting’s networking and data distribution are four ProPlex GBS Gigabit switches.
“We have four GBS switches on the job - Two at FOH and two at pits backstage,” explains show lighting director and programmer, Michael Appel. “We have an A/B network set up at FOH with A side switch and processing for the main show. B side is a full back-up to an A/B Cat 5switch that feeds down the fibre net to various sACN nodes.”
Appel adds: “We have used ProPlex GBS on massive shows including Kids Choice Awards, Teen Choice and the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. The switches are very robust and we trust them to handle the load of a massive rig. We always love to see ProPlex GBS. They give us confidence that our network connections from control out to the rig will be solid.”
Equipment for the show was provided by Main Light to specifiers and installers Beach Sound of Miami.
