Show Support provides video and sound for CBeeBies Live!

--Show Support supplied video and sound for the current CBeeBies Live UK arena tour produced by BBC Worldwide. It's the second year that the West Midlands based company has supplied sound, and this year, production values have been upped with the addition of projection.

Show Support's Rich Rowley says, “It has been great this year to get involved in both Sound and Video on a grand scale. The sound design was not over complex but the need was to design an ‘in the round system’ to fit with the lighting rig. On the video front – it was nice to get our Pandora’s Box Media System controlling not only video playback but an element of audio too.”

Craig Pryde is once again mixing FOH and monitors. Craig is using a brand new Soundcraft Vi4 audio console purchased for the tour.

It's the first time that Pryde has used the Vi4, which he says "Sounds brilliant". He programmed the desk during production rehearsals at Elstree, after which they had one pre-production day before the first show at Glasgow's SECC. "It's very much a show that has to be mixed live" he explains ...“Although it all runs so slickly that people could be forgiven for thinking it was plug-and-play scenario.
