Well known and highly respected in its native country of Portugal, Auditiv – Audiovisuais Lda. has more than 25 years of experience in the audio rental market.
Under the direction of João Escada and Daniel Bekerman, both experienced broadcast engineers, it maintains a very strong position in both broadcast and live sound, suppling audio systems for major national and international productions.
A long-standing DiGiCo user, the company has recently invested in a Quantum 338 console, ensuring it has the latest technology in its inventory.
“Working on national awards ceremonies such as the Golden Globes, well known musical TV shows including Got Talent, Ídolos and The Voice, and with bands such as Xutos & Pontapés are some of the highlights in our portfolio,” says Auditiv’s João Escada.
Internationally, Auditiv has participated in spectacular events including the Eurovision Song Contest, the Summer and Winter Olympic Games and in major Spanish TV formats.
“For all this, our equipment options have to guarantee all the reliability and operability compatible with the events, and so DiGiCo is our choice,” he continues.
“We started our association with DiGiCo in 2007 with the original D series, and that naturally evolved to the SD Series. Our choice is mainly because of the great I/O capacity of the system, flexibility, reliability and operability.
“Now, we have started our entry into the Quantum range with the acquisition of a Quantum 338.”
Auditiv took delivery of its Quantum 338 at the end of last year, immediately deploying at front of house for television show, Gala Dos Sonhos, a musical spectacular and fundraising event held in honour of acclaimed singer, the late Sara Carreira, and broadcast live on Portuguese television channel, SIC.
Delivering a complete audio system for the show, along with its new console Auditiv also supplied an SD5B for the broadcast element, an SD10 at monitors and three SD-Racks.
“The Quantum 338 performed flawlessly throughout the show, as did the SD consoles,” concludes Daniel Bekerman. “We’re delighted with our investment.”
Auditiv’s Quantum 338 will be gracing the monitor position for the Xutos and Pontapés tour in March, and is set to be used on some of this summer’s major festivals.
