Oslo, Norway (December 11, 2012)—Every year, the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize is celebrated with a high-profile, star-studded concert held in Oslo, Norway, and this evening's edition is no exception. On-hand will be Jennifer Hudson, Kylie Minogue, Ne-Yo, Seal and numerous other acts, along with co-hosts Gerard Butler and Sarah Jessica Parker—and a Meyer Sound Leo linear large-scale sound reinforcement system.
Held at the 9,700-capacity Oslo Spektrum arena before an audience of national leaders and Nobel laureates, the event will be broadcast to more than 100 countries worldwide.
For the concert, Asle Nilsen, head of pro audio at event sound supplier Oslo-based AVAB CAC. will deploy a four-cluster configuration featuring two primary hangs of 12 Leo-M and four Mica loudspeakers per side, augmented by two side clusters of eight Leo-M and four Mica loudspeakers. The 84-cabinet system will feature 16 M’elodie loudspeakers to handle front fill and 12 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements for bass reinforcement.
Meyer’s Leo is the company’s first live sound product to be delivered as a complete system; each Leo system consists of the Leo-M line array loudspeaker, 1100-LFC low-frequency control element, and Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system.
Nilsen has a long association with Meyer, having purchased his first non-powered UPA-1 loudspeaker in 1984; he has since added Mica, Milo, and M’elodie line array loudspeaker systems to his inventory. In 2007, AVAB CAC became the exclusive Meyer Sound distributor for Norway.
