An annual telethon broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s French Public Television Network enlisted the services of L’Audi-C Sonorisation of Trois-Rivieres, Canada for the live to broadcast 54th telecast of the Noel du Pauvre fundraiser to aid poverty stricken, and held at the Salle J.Antonio Thompson Theater in Trois- Rivières.

Under the direction of company président, Daniel Hardy, L’Audi-C Sonorisation brought in three Yamaha CL5 digital audio consoles, one each for monitors mixed by Patrice Gagnon, front of house mixed by Nicolas Ouimet, and for the stereo mix sent to the CBC mobile TV truck mixing by engineer Daniel Savoie.

Two Rio-3224D input/output boxes were used, fully redundant, using the Dante network. and front of house.

The CL5 at the monitor position was used for “Master Gain Recall” using only the physical outputs of the Rio rack and sent to the stage monitors as well as in-ear monitors. “This set up allowed us to have the same sound quality on stage as in the house,” states Paul Ricard, systems engineer, L’Audi-C Sonorisation.

Ricard said that once soundcheck was complete, they were using the CL’s gain compensation in order to have the best ratio signal to gain without changing the monitor sends.

“Each console engineer could use their own digital gain for trimming every input as needed, which worked very well and is essential for this type of system set up. The creation of a multicast group on the network allowed us to issue a single source to multiple receivers.”
