A Euphonix System 5 console has recently been installed in the Hoam Arts Hall in Seoul, Korea. Hoam Arts Hall offers classical music programming, the Seoul International Dance Festival and other top international entertainment, and is one of the main concert venues in Seoul, presenting artists such as Korea-based Ahn Trio and the Poz Dance Theater.
"With the increasing complexity of live events, performance spaces are looking for a solution to control each nuance of the sound," commented Russell Waite, VP of international sales for Euphonix. "There are several reasons why System 5 has attracted the attention of the live market. SnapShot Recall of all console parameters is perfect for complex changes in live shows. In a live situation, reliability is very important, and the System 5 is well-proven with over 120 installations worldwide. The other main reasons are its familiar analog look and feel and the excellent visual feedback, a real necessity for a live sound engineer under pressure."
Russell also said that the System 5 offers audio-networking features that are attractive to live venues. "System 5 can handle hundreds of inputs with a small control-surface footprint and has a built-in digital router called PatchNet. The routing and patching system on the S5 is so clearly laid out and easy to navigate that many operators claim that it is exactly what they need. A clear overview and many patch points to get in and out of the console is essential, especially on complex projects that require many externals for main loudspeakers, foldback and broadcast lines."
