PLASA FOCUS GLASGOW: Orbital promises numerous audio ‘firsts’

Orbital Sound is showing a wide cross-section from its portfolio of pro audio brands on Stand E01 at the inaugural PLASA Focus: Glasgow.

Making its UK trade show debut is the d&b audiotechnik Y-Series and the UMT-2Di multi-button and MIDI-USB Converter, the latest addition to Nemesis’ range of theatre-specific audio playback and control solutions.

Flare Audio’s latest loudspeaker designs, including the X2A Compact Vertical Point Source system, X0A Micro Delay speaker and SB Series Flat Panel Bass speakers, are on show in Scotland for the first time.

Carefully selected additions to the show line-up include the Meyer Sound MINA compact curvilinear array loudspeaker range, and from L-Acoustics, Orbital is showing the KIVA compact modular line source speaker.

On the communications front, visitors can check out the recently introduced Clear-Com FreeSpeak II system, which was deployed on the new West End musical Memphis. It can be deployed as a standalone wireless system, with a single 1RU base station supporting up to 20 digital wireless beltpacks, or as an integrated wireless solution with the Eclipse HX Matrix System. Also on show is the Helixnet Digital Wired intercom system and the Tempest Digital Wireless solution.

Orbital Sound is teaming up with Flare Audio to run two special demo days (December 15th and January 5th) at The Wimbledon Theatre, where they will be putting the X2A, X0A and Q18 subs through their paces.

The Nemesis UMT-2Di (pictured) is a standalone solution for the complex external control requirements of theatrical control and playback software, including QLAB, CSC, SFX, SCS, Sony Vegas and similar packages. It features two large integrated buttons and a rotary encoder for easy access to standard Go, Stop, Previous and Next commands.

Widely deployed on West End and touring shows, the latest CSC Theatrical/Live Sound Show Control Software package enables complicated performances to be controlled seamlessly, tying together all aspects of live sound control, Orbital says.

Project engineers from Orbital Sound will be on hand to share their knowledge of using the equipment in the field too.

PLASA Focus: Glasgow will take place at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre on December 2nd and 3rd 2014.
