PLM Powers For European TV Dance Show

Lab.gruppen's acclaimed PLM (Powered Loudspeaker Management) range have been deployed for the live studio broadcast finals of the hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance? in Holland and Belgium.
A number of PLM 10000Q and the brand new PLM 20000Q have been supplied to TV production company Kanakna Productions as part of a substantial live PA system, which also includes Lab.gruppen’s FP+ series, by lighting and sound supplier Eventec.
The hit reality TV show has eight finals shows broadcast live on Dutch TV network RTL and VTM in Belgium, from Studio 1 at Aalsmeer, just outside Amsterdam.
The first of the live finals took place on 10th October, with the grand final on 28th November.
Eventec supplied all sound and lighting for the show, with the audio system based around Seeburg Acoustic Line Galeo XT tops and subs, powered by racks of Lab.gruppen PLM and FP+ and controlled via Dolby Lake DLP and Lake Controller software, running off PC but controlled from an Apple iPad running VNC (remote desktop control).
Two racks each containing a single PLM 10000Q and PLM 20000Q are all that’s required to comfortably drive a total of 12 x Seeburg Acoustic Line Galeo tops and 8 x Galeo subs.
A third rack comprising of the same units is being used to drive some additional elements such as a loudspeaker cluster for the judges' position.
Monitor wedges and some additional fills around the studio floor area are powered by a pair of racks each containing Lab.gruppen FP 10000Q and third party processing and control.
Eventec’s Wijnand Mol commented on the reasons behind their Lab.gruppen preference: "With the Lab.gruppen amps, we can do everything. Whether it’s a small system like 2 x tops with 2 × 18” subs or whether it’s a large line array with subs, just one rack does the job.
"For the studio setups like this, it’s great to have full control that Lake provides, and it can all be driven on an iPad! Not to mention of course the high power output of the PLM gives us so much headroom and packs 4 × 2500 W and 4 × 4500 W on a single rack weighing just 30 kilos."
