Lawo has covered the sound needs of the “Concert de Paris” for France Day 2021
To celebrate the Day of France, the past 14th of July the Champs du Mars by the foot of the Eiffel Tower host the traditional Concert de Paris. Lawo mixing consoles were responsible for the live and broadcast sound requirements, as in the last seven years.
For the orchestra mix they used a 48-fader mc²56 production console (FOH) while another 48 fader mc²56 handled the monitoring tasks in a configuration in which a 16 fader mc²² extender was used to allow social distancing between the two operators. The whole system operated over the Optocore fiber-optic network deployed by Radio France.
The broadcast mix was managed in a Radio France OB vehicle. It allowed the use of the broadcast console’s own stage boxes and DALLIS microphone preamps.
“It is a great honor for Lawo to be trusted, year after year, by Radio France for such a prestigious event as the provider of the audio mixing consoles for both the public address and broadcast signals”, says Joffrey Heyraud, Lawo Sales Director France. “It highlights the excellence of our equipment with uncompromising audio processing and state-of-the-art reliability”.
This year’s Concert de Paris was followed on-site by an audience of 15.000 people, and was relayed to a record 3.5 million TV viewers in France and an estimated 10 million audience in Europe
