Digiteac relies on Harman products for Swiss fest

The Festilac 2006 festival, a four-day event staged in Geneva, Switzerland this June, was serviced by a French sound rental company, Digiteac Industrie. Festilac’s producers and talent programmers place a special focus on international vocal artists, and this year’s lineup highlighted international pop, rock, R&B, acoustic and a capella artists from many different nations ranging from Cuba to Indonesia. Featured talent included Bananarama (United Kingdom), Daniela Mercury (Brasil), Bettye Lavette (United States) and Jean-Pierre Mader (France).

Digiteac’s sound reinforcement solution for the event relied heavily on Harman products. Audio for the main stage came from a JBL VerTec system, comprising 16 VT4888 midsize line array elements and eight VT4880 full-size arrayable subwoofers. Powering the main system were 20 Crown I-Tech rack-mounted amplifiers, linked by Digiteac’s tour-grade patching system. Four Crown I-T8000 were used to power the JBL VT4880 subwoofers, with eight I-T6000’s and eight I-T4000’s allocated for the three-way JBL VT4888 midsize line array elements.

Signal processing was accomplished with two BSS Omnidrive FDS366T system controllers. Lexicon multi-effects and dbx graphic equalizers were included in the festival package. JBL SRX712M wedges were used for onstage monitoring, with VRX932LA speakers deployed for frontfill. In addition, JBL’s Venue Performance Series premium powered loudspeakers with JBL DrivePack technology made their European festival debut at this year’s event. Digiteac used JBL’a new VP7315DP-AN as stage-area fill speakers, relying upon Harman Professional’s System Architect software for remote control and monitoring of the HiQnet-compatible audio products onsite.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
