iLive chosen as the system for the global Battle of the Bands

Allen & Heath showcased its iLive digital system for Hewlett Packard's 'Design Your Personal Life' event, which was held at Dubai's Wafi City recently.


Udaya Sound was the PA company appointed to manage the AV requirements for the event. It recently acquired the iLive system from Allen & Heath's distributor, VV & Sons.

The iLive system comprises an iDR10 mix rack and iLive-144 control surface.

"iLive's proven technology will give Udaya an edge in terms of sound processing and VV & Sons has provided full training and technical support in order to get the very best out of this sophisticated hardware," said Joseph Ninel, touring sound specialist for VV & Sons.

The Dubai event was part of a global campaign taking form as a battle of the bands competition, which was designed to draw youths together from different countries with similar experiences and environments.

Events were staged simultaneously in Athens, Istanbul and Johannesburg and live satellite links were used throughout the evening to unite the four different locations, as well as spectators who were following proceedings online.

A DAS Audio active portable speaker system was also used for the evening, with visuals provided by Robe and DTS Lighting.

The event also featured an online competition for new musicians in each of the four cities, allowing visitors to support their favourite groups by voting for songs and music videos.
