AEQ CROSSNET AND XPLORER DRIVE RELIABLE COMMS ON STAGE DURING THE ARNAU DIMASH TOUR. 02/04/2020
THE PRODUCER SHOW PRO COMMISSIONED THE UKRAINIAN INTEGRATOR TV PROJECT THE EQUIPMENT FOR THE TOUR OF ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR ASIAN SINGERS
ShowPro, a Ucranian-based full-service event management company, partnered with TV-PROJECT - local integrator, to ensure a smooth and reliable production for this Tour.
Dimash Kudaibergen is probably the most popular Kazakh singer-songwriter and musician nowadays. He is university trained in classical as well as in contemporary music and is known for his wide vocal range of six octaves. Its popularity exceeds Kazakhstan and the rest of the post-Soviet countries, reaching the entire Asia, specially in China.
During this year he is performing the "ARNAU" tour. Showpro is in charge for the coverage of this tour in the Baltic countries and Ukraine. Showpro is one of the largest full-service event management company in the country, which carries out work on the deployment of audio and video systems for several shows. In order to broadacast the content of the shows the company use an OBvan which could record and broadcast the liveshows, as well as take care of the technical coordination in each event.
The integrator TV Project relies on AEQ for the intercom solution. In this kind of events, the coordination needs go beyond the typical of mobile television units: It is not just a matter of coordinating camera operators in the space where the event takes place, sound engineers and the producer in the OBvan.
Mr. Serhii Lishchenko, Project Manager of TV Project, was requested to offer a system able to provide the standart comms requeest for an OBVan, but also a system capable to coordinate the lighting engineers, the PA table engineer, the monitor desk on stage, the Show director and additional needs in the Back-Stage.
This entire system must provide fixed users sets outside the OBVan, also sets mounted on fligh-cases, in addition to other wireless sets that can be moved all around the event area.
AEQ recommended combining a system based on a CROSSNET 40, rackmounted panels TP 8116 through digital ports of the matrix and VoIP network using the XPLORER wireless system. The beltpacks work on a network based on 5G WiFi access points. The Xplorer users work always with headsets as the users of the TP8116 panels located outside the OBVan.
AEQ's Xplorer wireless system works on 5G WiFi networks with access points that support the roaming function, so the beltpack will automatically connect with different access points searching for the best coverage. As the user moves around the facilities, the communication of the beltpacks is switching to different access points. Xplorer can work with most managed WiFi hotspot systems on the market. ShowPro chosed the Ubiquti.
We asked Mr. Alexey Balkovsky, CEO of Show Pro about the intercom system. He told us “We are very happy. We took it for granted that the wired part of the system will work propertly, but the performance of the wireless beltpacks is great. They have the same communication capacity as rackmounted panels, good coverage and high audio quality. Also quiet happy with the battery capacity. Every night they should be left in the charging station, but when someone forgets to let it there, on the next day they still working. ”
