New consoles for Jalsat 2017
UAE: Jalsat 2017 required a pair of Midas consoles to support a major Ramadan project. The sale was made through the manufacturer’s regional distributor, Pro Lab, to supply the Pro X and Pro2 desks. The purchase was made by a collection of freelance engineers who work with many different production houses to develop content for a variety of TV programmes.
The Midas consoles were a specific request for the project due to their live sound credentials. ‘The high-scale requirements that Midas Pro series mixers provide can meet any audio rider,’ said Pro Lab managing partner Rami Haber. ‘They are very user friendly and highly advanced mixers providing the latest solutions and technology.’
The mixers were put to use for a singing programme and Mr Haber believes that events such as this can provide a powerful reference for both the manufacturer and its distributor. ‘These clients are audio-visual engineers,’ he reasoned. ‘Because such highly advanced mixers require a lot of knowhow it’s very important for people with this kind of background and skill to use the desks to deliver excellent results. It provides a great image for the brand.’
