New York (September 8, 2006)–UK SR provider Britannia Row Productions, a leading public address rental company in the United Kingdom, has purchased 13 Dolby Lake Processors for loudspeaker management on the Robbie Williams: Close Encounters worldwide stadium tour.
Jerry Wing, technical head, Britannia Row, seen here with some of the 13 Dolby Lake Processors now on tour with Robbie Williams.The Dolby Lake Processors were chosen to support Britannia Row’s current huge L-Acoustics V-Dosc and dV-Dosc loudspeaker system inventory, much of which is now being used on the Robbie Williams tour.
Britannia Row tour sales manager Roly Oliver commented, “At Britannia Row, we service very high-profile clients with the latest technologies from only the best equipment manufacturers. We did extensive research and evaluation of processors in the market and found that the Dolby Lake Processor was the most future-proof processing technology available. Support from Dolby’s live sound group and its UK distributor, Out Board, has also been outstanding.”
Each Dolby Lake Processor unit on the Robbie Williams: Close Encounters tour is configured with four-in/twelve-out analog modules. The full stadium system complement for the Robbie Williams tour, specified by system engineer Sherif el Barbari, includes three units at each side of the stage, one at each of six possible delay tower locations, and a single eight-in/eight-out unit at front of house to collect the various mix and submix signals from the DiGICo consoles and distribute them throughout the system.
Jerry Wing, Technical Head, Britannia Row, remarked, “It is Dolby’s fastidious attention to detail and blue-sky thinking that puts them streets ahead, in terms of audio quality, ease of operation, and high-quality build.”
