Allen & Heath consoles for new Saudi Arabian uni installation28 September 2011
Allen & Heath mixing consoles have been installed throughout the new Princess Noura AbdulRahman University for Women in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Supplied by CAP France BAT with the support of Allen & Heath distributor PAXT Pro Audio Engineering, the audio installation incorporates the university’s Convention Centre, including a 2,800 capacity theatre, a smaller 1,400 capacity theatre, a rehearsal/multi-purpose theatre, and ten seminar rooms.
The University was officially opened by Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah less than three years after laying the first foundation stone. The project covers 8 million square metres, and includes administration buildings, 13 faculties, a 700-bed student hospital, laboratories, research centres and a residential area including accommodation for students and staff.
The two larger theatres feature a total of four iDR-48 MixRacks and four iLive-T112 Control Surfaces to manage FOH and monitors, while the Black Box rehearsal theatre contains an iDR-32 MixRack with iLive-T80 Control Surface. Additionally, ZED-14 analogue stereo USB mixers have been installed in each of the seminar rooms to mix wireless, gooseneck mics and programme audio sources.
