Furlong by furlong: iLive in France31 July 2009
The iLive system at Deauville Touques comprises an iDR10 MixRack and iLive-112 Control Surface. In addition to managing the live PA during races, VIP events, broadcast feeds and horse auctions, the system can also be used to provide sound to the OB van.
The iLive system is installed in the racecourse’s control room, while a laptop (loaded with iLive Editor control software) and a PL remote controller enable direct access to audio settings at the presenters’ booth.
“The racecourse team, managed by Thierry Migeon, chose iLive because of its rapid, easy and flexible design, which enable the system to adapt to the venue’s many different activities,” commented Yann Matte from Allen & Heath distributor Audiopole. “iLive is the perfect choice.”
