Singer Claudia Leite with iLive at her live performance
Brazil (June 11, 2014)—Allen & Heath’s iLive-112 digital systems helped manage the live performances at this year’s carnivale celebration in Brazil. Mixes from performances by Claudia Leite, Jota Quest, Pericles, and Michel Telo were fed to four GLD-80s to broadcast worldwide as well.
Allen & Heath’s distributor, Teleponto, supplied the consoles, designed the systems, and managed the live performances and global transmission of the carnival. Six teams and a total of 70 staff were required to ensure the successful operation of six straight days of transmission and 72 hours of live broadcasts.
The GLD-80 consoles were used to handle audio feeds sent from several remote locations spanning over 2km. In addition, four AR2412 and eight AR84 audio racks and over 7 km of optical fibre cable were used.
“With more than 2 million people in attendance and simultaneous live feeds to more than a dozen international broadcast and online networks, reliability was of the utmost importance, and as expected Allen & Heath delivered,” explains Antonio Pereira Neto, President of Teleponto.
