Allen & Heath's Digital Mixing System Used For R20 Conference

Regions of Climate Action is a non-profit environmental organisation founded by former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, with the support of the United Nations. A coalition of sub-national governments, private companies, international organisations, NGOs and academic and financial institutions, R20 supports governments building a green economy.
The two-day conference gathered nearly 600 participants, and was hosted by Schwarzenegger. Local broadcast company, RadioMax, led by production manager, Martin Jeschke, was appointed to manage all technical aspects, and freelancer, Andreas Putz, was appointed chief audio engineer.
Based in Austria, Putz specialises in live sound engineering for music and corporate events and also specialises in multimedia AV design for fixed installations. For the R20 conference, Putz chose to use his own Allen & Heath iLive-112 modular surface with iDR-48 MixRack loaded with a Waves network card. There was a laptop running iLive Editor at FOH connected through a separate CAT5e cable to the iDR on stage (redundancy A), and another laptop running Editor behind the stage directly connected to the iDR rack (redundancy B) to ensure full control and backup for any eventuality. There was also a split feed to provide audio for approximately 20 camera teams capturing the event.
“I chose iLive for this event because I’ve been using it for around 2 ½ years and it is so reliable,” comments Andreas Putz. “The system is really easy-to-use and offers a high number of redundancy options, which is very important for conference work. Not only that, iLive’s audio quality is pristine – it simply sounds amazing!”
