Clear-Com helps Amsterdam’s Muziektheater transfer to digital18 September 2007
The Clear-Com system chosen for the venue includes 16 digital intercom panels, 50 FreeSpeak wireless programmable beltpacks, 40 FreeSpeak antennae and eight FreeSpeak antenna splitters.
Pointing out that the venue has a long-standing relationship with Clear-Com, Muzietheater sound and video department head Hans-Willem de Haan commented: “We required an intercom system with at least 50 wireless beltpacks that would give us digital audio transmission throughout and be able to operate simultaneously and seamlessly across a complex site. Because all of our performances are live, we needed a system with a high level of redundancy. With Clear-Com, we also had the added confidence of working with a company that we knew to be highly skilled and experienced in producing this type of intercom solution.”
In addition to the installation on site, a mobile set-up featuring a Clear-Com matrix and FreeSpeak system that can be packed into a touring flight case has been supplied for the offsite commitments of both the Dutch National Ballet and the Netherlands Opera.
“We’re very proud that Muziektheater chose us to address their needs for maximum mobility and the best possible sound quality and reliability,” commented Matt Danilowicz, managing director of Clear-Com. “Their decision reflects a growing trend amongst live performance venues across Europe to convert to digital, wireless technology in a non-disruptive manner.”
