Obama’s Nobel Prize accompanied by Allen & Heath
President Barack Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize last week in a ceremony hosted at Oslo City Hall, Norway. In preparation for the event, the venue went through an overhaul of its sound system, including the installation of Allen & Heath digital mixing and audio distribution systems.
Five iDR-8 DSP matrix mixers have been installed for audio distribution, accompanied by several PL units for remote control, including the PL-6 8-fader panel, PL-4 wallplates, and PL-8 logic control panels.
The venue has also installed Allen & Heath’s iLive digital mixing system to manage live events, comprising an iDR10 MixRack digitally split to an iDR0 mini MixRack, with iLive-112 and iLive-80 Control Surfaces to manage FOH and monitors.
The Peace Prize ceremony was attended by the Norwegian Royal family and celebrities, including actor Will Smith and country singer, Toby Keith.
