SXS Events has opted for an Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing system from its hire inventory to handle audio requirements for TV show ‘Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model’.
Shown in the UK on Sky Living, and internationally syndicated to over 50 million viewers, all of the sound from the show’s live elements, including speech, are fed through the iLive system, which is comprised of an iDR-48 MixRack and iLive-T112 Control Surface.
“iLive is great for shows like this because of its totally open architecture. This allows us to provide whatever matrix mixes are required for the TV crew, as well as live mixes for FOH, backstage and any other feeds needed. The sheer number of channels in the iDR-48 means we are never short, and can always provide the connectivity that producers and directors need at the last minute. What’s more, surfaces like the iLive-T80 and T112 are compact and great for tight spaces, without losing functionality,” explained SXS’s Johnny Palmer, production designer for the show.
