More than 400,000 people gathered beneath the Eiffel Tower on July 14 for a concert in celebration of Bastille Day, the French national holiday remembering the French Revolution.
Lawo helped make sure all who attended were able to hear the concert with the use of mc236 and Dallis I/O systems.
Two mc236 desks were used to mix the concert — one handling the orchestra, the other the choirs. There were also two Dallis I/O systems that were used as stage boxes and connected via Ravenna/AES67 AoIP technology to a new plug-and-play Nova router. The setup allowed for networking and sharing of all resources and busses between all consoles.
“It is just plug and play — you connect your consoles and I/O systems via Ravenna/AES67 or MADI, and the audio network is up and running, providing immediate access to all users,” said Hervé de Caro, Lawo’s live sound specialist.
The concert was also lived broadcast on Radio France.
