Poland (August 20, 2018)—120dB Sound Engineering in Poland has launched a new truck for broadcast and recording duties at live events equipped with SSL’s System T broadcast production environment, including an S300 32-fader control surface, a T25 Tempest Audio Engine and a variety of SSL Network I/O.
Michal Mika, the owner of 120dB Sound Engineering, realized that a dedicated audio van was needed as it became apparent that demand for his company’s services was growing rapidly. 120dB’s business in eSports broadcast is strong, with regular broadcasts for Turtle Entertainment and ESL TV, and as the main audio provider for the Intel Extreme Masters Championships in Katowice. The music side is active as well.
The choice of console for ST1 was informed by a number of factors; Mika says that the Dante AoIP networking infrastructure was one of the biggest: “I have enjoyed using Dante with other consoles and other equipment for two or three years now,” he explains. “Particularly on the eSports events.”
The new set-up reportedly works well for the regular eSports work, with one box backstage for wireless mics and IEM returns, one for the Shoutcasters’ area, one for the analysis/discussion area, and one for the production area, bringing signals from the computers and to the intercom system. It also means that 120dB has a total of 128 mic/line inputs, 96 analog outputs, and 32 digital I/O available for more complex music events and festivals.
SSL Polish distributor Audiotech supplied the equipment. Studiotech Audio Visual Engineering built 120dB’s ST1 Sound Truck.
