VIO for Sanremo Festival 2018

At the record-breaking edition, VIO made its debut at
the 68th Edition of the Italian Song Festival in Sanremo, Italy.



It’s
been the most successful edition in nearly 20 years : millions of viewers in
front of their TV sets; 95 international correspondents from China, USA, Canada
and most European countries;  more than
1000 italian journalists, an enthusiastic audience in the theatre and a
unanimous favourable reception from both public and critics for the 68th
Italian Song Festival, held at Teatro Ariston in Sanremo on February 6-10th.



In this international
setting, a dBTechnologies VIO system, recently bought by RAI (Italian national
public broadcasting company ), made its debut as main PA at the Teatro Ariston,
transformed for the occasion into a TV studio.



In
detail, the system was composed of a total of 16 VIO L210 line array modules at
the sides of the stage plus 8 active VIO S118 subwoofers (3 + 3 in cardioid
configuration at the sides of the stage plus other 2 cabinets positioned along
the front of the stage). Firthermore,  6
VIO L210 modules (3 per side) were used as mid-house delay system in the
theatre.



The
VIO family received unanimous consent, proving immediately to be the perfect solution
for an excellent rendering of orchestra, singing and speech throughout the
theatre.



As
for the range of low frequencies, the compact dimensions of the VIO S118 subwoofers
allowed to create 2 arrays of 3 subs each in cardioid configuration with
inverted stack gradient, positioned at the sides of the stage, a choice
that offered a great advantage on stage as it avoided
any disturb to the orchestra and  main artists
on stage. 



So,
great success for dBTechnologies VIO series at the testing ground of live
television broadcasting with an important and delicate appointment such as
“Sanremo”, as The Festival of the Italian song is called in Italy.



A
success confirmed by the production's decision to keep the same PA setup for
Sanremo Young, which was also broadcasted at prime-time live by RAI for 5 weeks
in a row.



The talent show featured 12 young singers, all born after the
year 2000, who competed week after week accompanied by the Sanremo Young
Orchestra, entirely composed of young 18 to 25 year-old musicians.



The VIO system remained the “star” of the show: RAI sound
engineers maintained substantially the same setup: VIO L210 plus VIO S118
active subwoofers.



This time, considering that the intentionally simple stage
set left some technical elements on view, 2 more subs and 2 VIO L210 front fill
modules were stacked along the stage front, directed towards the audience and
jury sitting on the stands specially built for the show.
