Athens, Greece (December 30, 2004)–A pair of Cadac J-Type Live Production Consoles have been installed in Megaron, the Athens Concert Hall Complex. The J-Type consoles–one 60-input and one 56-input frame plus a flexible 24-input sub frame–are installed in two new multi-functional halls at the Athens Concert Hall, and were supplied and installed by Cadac’s Greek distributor, Telmaco SA, after a two-year bid process.
Athens Concert Hall opened in 1991, some 35 years after the Greek government originally donated the site for its construction. The world-class venue is jointly governed by the Athens Concert Hall Organisation, the Friends of Music Society, and the state, and hosts an extensive schedule of musical productions and events. The two new halls, the 1800-seat Alexandra Triandi Hall and the 400-seat Nikos Skalkotas Hall, were opened complete with new sound systems, including the Cadac consoles. The J-Type in the Alexandra Triandi Hall can be configured as an 84-input desk for large-scale operatic and classical productions, or separated into a 60-input console with the mobile 24-input sub frame shared between the two Halls.
