A new cruise ship running between Finland and Sweden is to be fitted out with iLive digital mixing systems and MixWizard analogue rackmount mixers.
Cornwall-based Allen & Heath announced that its Finnish distributor Noretron Audio Ltd had finalised a deal with Viking Line Abp to kit out the company’s new M/S Viking cruise ship.
iLive systems, comprising iLive-T112 and iLive-T80 Control Surfaces with iDR-48 and iDR-16 Mix Racks equipped with DANTE network option cards, and a total of seven MixWizard WZ316:2 rackmount mixers, will be installed in the ship’s night club, and several restaurants and conference rooms.
Noretron is also supplying all other entertainment audio, including loudspeakers, amplification, wireless microphone- and IEM-systems.
The company’s AV manager, Jouni Sirounen said Viking chose Allen & Heath for the job because he knew from iLive's performance on other ships in the company's fleet that it was the system to deliver clear sound all over the ship under heavy use.
The ship is being built in Turku shipyard run by STX Finland Oy and will start operating in January 2013 between Finland and Sweden. Viking Grace will be equipped with highly advanced, environmentally-friendly technology, as it will be the first large scale cruise ship in the world to use LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) for its energy source.
Jorma Tikka, Noretron Audio's Senior Sales Manager, said the company was looking forward to seeing a "technologically advanced" cruise ship on the Baltic Sea, with "world class" audio.
