Allen & Heath iLive-112 digital mixing systems played an important role in sound reinforcement at the renowned Carnival celebration in Rio de Janeiro, Brazin, featuring performances by renowned international artists including Claudia Leite, Jota Quest, Pericles, and Michel Telo. Mixes were also routed to four Allen & Heath GLD-80 mixing systems, which handled the worldwide broadcast feeds.
Allen & Heath’s distributor Teleponto supplied the consoles, designed the systems, and managed the live performances and global transmission of the carnival. Six teams and a total of 70 staff were required to ensure the successful operation of six straight days of transmission and 72 hours of live broadcasts.
The GLD-80 consoles were used to handle audio feeds sent from several remote locations spanning over 2 kilometerrs. In addition, four AR2412 and eight AR84 audio racks, feeding 7 kilometers of fiber optic cable.
“With more than 2 million people in attendance and simultaneous live feeds to more than a dozen international broadcast and online networks, reliability was of the utmost importance, and as expected Allen & Heath delivered,” states Antonio Pereira Neto, president of Teleponto.
