Further audio expansion for eclipse
UAE: The audio inventory at eclipse Staging Services has been bolstered with additions from d&b audiotechnik and DiGiCo as well as fibre optics and various IT hardware. The purchases were made through local distributors, including Lightbox and NMK.
‘The new purchases include a range of d&b kit such as Y-Series Y7p and Y10p point source speakers, Y-Series brackets, M-Series M2 monitors, E-Series E5 speakers and the new D20 amplifiers,’ said eclipse’s head of audio, John Parkhouse. ‘The d&b purchase constitutes our continued development and commitment to providing the best available audio systems to our clients. This round sees us bolster our point source offering and stage monitoring stock.
‘The DiGiCo purchase allows us to offer the incredibly versatile S21 for smaller and mid-sized shows while simultaneously focusing heavily on fibre optic upgrades and stage racks to open up a tremendous amount of further scope when considering more complex events and distribution over distance,’ he continued. ‘We have also added the DiGiGrid MGB interfaces to increase our breadth of interaction with all Madi enabled consoles and to further develop our recording/playback capabilities which has become a common requirement at all levels of events.’
The DiGiCo purchase also includes various SD racks and a range of optics upgrades. In addition, the department hads purchased over 1km of OpticalCon fibre on drums.
‘Last year was a noteworthy year for the eclipse audio department, growing in terms of staff, inventory and warehouse space, and with the growth of the department still on the rise,’ concluded eclipse Staging Services general manager, Martin Lubach. ‘Plans for further purchases are under way and we predict 2016 to be another successful year for the team.’
