An Allen & Heath iDR digital audio distribution system has been installed in the New Nokia Concert Hall in Tallinn, Estonia. Conferences, concerts and other high-profile events will be held at the much-publicised venue, which is already being talked about as one of Europe's most high-spec performance facilities.
Part of the larger Solaris culture, conference and entertainment complex, the Nokia Concert Hall now features an iDR system to manage audio distribution, control and zoning across multiple areas. Specifically, the iDR package comprises an iDR-8 16x16 matrix mixer, an iDR-in and an iDR-out expander unit, and an iDR-switch to enable the connection of external equipment such as room dividers and relays. Several remote control units - a PL-7 LCD wall panel, a PL-9 hub connector and a PL-10 8-channel rotary fader panel - have also been installed.
A Meyer Sound Constellation system is another integral part of the audio infrastructure, while the technical spec also features extensive video monitoring and interpretation capabilities.
"The conference centre truly is a state-of-the-art facility with a unique concept unprecedented in Estonia or anywhere in the Baltics. The top quality sound, light and video technique of the multi-functional conference facilities make it the best equipped performance hall in the region," said Peeter Rebane, chairman of the Solaris management board.
The iDR system was purchased through A&H distributor Music Center Pro and installed by Eventech Ltd.
