DiGiCo Consoles Installed in Austria

FOH Staff • News • October 1, 2007

ST. POLTEN, AUSTRIA — DiGiCo’s Austrian distributor, TON Eichinger Professional Sound Systems, has recently made sales of DiGiCo/Soundtracs consoles in the Austrian market. The first is to ORF, the country’s central radio facility, and the second is to the Landestheater in St Pölten.

ORF’s central radio facility, in the capital of Vienna, comprises small to medium-sized studios used for recording radio talk shows and small live music shows as well as high-level post production. Its recent purchase of three Soundtracs DS-00 digital consoles — two for its Vienna facility, the third for its Eisenstadt regional studio — is part of a series of such installations there.

“ORF have used Soundtracs consoles for some time, having had DS3s previously, and are familiar with the way they work,” says Othmar Eichinger of TON Eichinger. “So when it was time to update its system, the decision was made to install three DS-00s with fader expansion units. 

A DiGiCo D1 Live digital mixing console has been installed into the Landestheater, a medium-sized provincial theatre in Lower Austria.

The theatre wanted to have a portable solution for its mixing requirements allowing it to have the option to utilize the D1 at other venues or open-air events. “The small footprint means it can be transported very easily by two people,” concludes Othmar. “And it doesn’t take up too many seats, which is great for the theatre’s bottom line.”
