SSE helps Pavilion Theatre Rhyl upgrade to meet performance demands
SSE Audio, part of the Solotech UK Group, has supplied the Pavilion Theatre Rhyl with an AV upgrade to its house control package.

Centred around a Yamaha PM10 console, the system will help the theatre handle the high channel counts and robust technical demands typical of its productions. 

Delivered just in time for the Pavilion's pantomime season, the upgrade was critically needed, as the theatre suffered significant flooding when a water tank burst on the second floor of the building causing extensive damage to the front of house in July 2021.

The full package supplied by SSE uses the Yamaha PM10 surface with a DSP R10 engine as the centrepiece. Multiple I/O options were specified including a Yamaha RPio622 configured for 48 In/32 Out, two Rio3224-D2s and four Rio1608-D2s, all with Dante connectivity.

Live sound specialist James Baker handled the sale for SSE; "It's envisaged that the RPio622 will sit either at the console end, directly linked by fibres or via a pair of optical tie lines we've installed in the theatre so it can sit on stage. Then the Rios add further flexibility, so for example one can be in the orchestra pit and another stage left, linking in via Dante over the building's Cat 6 network. We've supplied Cisco switches throughout to aid the connectivity options available to them."

The whole system was packaged in Sigma Fabrications cases complete with Sigma Electronics panel work.   As part of the delivery, Yamaha's application engineer Tom Rundle was on site for the initial configuration and training for the theatre's technical crew.
