Working together key to success
"Join us", that was the theme of the 59th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Based on Rent-All good relationship with MOTO Rental, we were asked to work together to make this project a joined success. PA System Engineer Jurgen Vandewalle explains. "Commissioned by MOTO Rental Denmark we have delivered the sound system to the Eurovision Song Contest. In addition to speakers and amplifiers tailor made ​​equipment was supplied for this large-scale project. Rent-All was the first to use the new RME Madi router. This was necessary for the various protocols to tie easily. In the control circuit (2x Digico SD7 , SD10 1x and 2x Midas XL8 ) we had 5 Madi routers in use".


"The PA was audio signal completely redundant," added Jurgen . " For the AES - supply, we have chosen for Riedel - Rocknet. Each PA - string was provided with a 8ch AES output unit . The PA was driven by 9x Dolby LM44. From the LM44 we both took the AES for rocknet and analog lines. The rocknet units in the air are wired in a closed circuit via CAT6 network cable. The PA has been measured and tuned with live satellite measurement software."


Join Us in 2015?
In 2015, Rent-All would love to be part of the Eurovision Song Contest in Austria. With the help of our partners it will sure be another success.
