Paris, France (July 26, 2005)–French car manufacturer, Renault, has opened a new communications and presentation facility at its main plant in Flins, near Paris, installing Allen & Heath products, including a GL3300 console and an iDR system, to manage the audio requirements.
The new site houses a 350-capacity theater and 13,000-square-foot dining/entertainment area, which will be used to launch new vehicles to the press and VIPs, and also as a meeting space for the company’s distributors and employees.
An Allen & Heath GL3300 multi-purpose live sound console has been installed in the control room of Renault’s new communications and presentation facility near Paris.
The sound system was installed by Bordeaux-based IEC-ASV and includes a 32-channel GL3300 multi-purpose live sound console for mixing live events, and an iDR-8 digital mixing processor and iDR-out expansion unit for audio distribution around the venue. Turbosound speakers are fitted throughout the venue.
The entertainment area and theater are separated by a stage, and a partition wall enables either side to be closed off, depending on the occasion. The iDR is programmed so that when the partition wall is closed, two separate sound systems with new audio settings, including system EQ, time alignment, crossover functions and output limiting are automatically activated.
