Sound.Com supplies IPL opening ceremony
INDIA: Audio production company, Sound.Com, provided the system for the opening ceremony of the new Indian Premier League T20 season in Kolkata. The event at the Salt Lake stadium called into action over 200 JBL loudspeakers.
The bulk of those 200 speakers were made up of Vertec line array cabinets, with 112 combining to form for the main PA. While JBL monitors were also put to use for the performers on stage. Four Vertec hangs formed the bulk of the system with further ground stacked cabinets to provide delays and fills to the stadium. Power for the system was via Crown iTech-HD amps.
For the first time in an IPL opening ceremony, the show was driven and networked over fibre. This was achieved using equipment from Optocore. The show was mixed at front of house with a DiGiCo SD10 while equipment from Lake and XTA was also put to use.
