checkpointmedia has upgraded the Brahms Hall in the Musikverein in Vienna with state-of-the-art audio technology. This new equipment enables checkpointmedia to accommodate those artists who wish to comment on their musical performance or combine it with narration or texts. The new equipment for the spoken word is used particularly for Allegretto and Capriccio, the concert cycles for children and young people, as well as for readings and the announcement of changes made to the programme at short notice. As Dr. Angyan, Director of the Musikverein, explains: "The musical performance is not affected, as the Brahms Hall's perfect acoustics do not need amplification." Thanks to a flexible infrastructure the equipment can be installed in various locations in the 600-seater hall that was built in 1870 with architecture reminiscent of Greek antiquity. To ensure a perfect sound, the concert hall, which is 32.5 metres long, 10.3 metres wide and 11 metres high, was meticulously measured and fitted with a loudspeaker management controller. In addition, connectible digital mixing desks facilitate the production of contemporary tonal images in the creative workshops for children and young people.
