An Intensely Real Audio Experience for BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall

Michael Eddy

The BBC Proms is one of the most British of musical institutions. Founded over a century ago, it is an eight-week summer season of concerts, predominantly held at the Royal Albert Hall (RAH), with Cadogan Hall hosting chamber music, and Proms in the Park events held across the UK on The Last Night of the Proms. For this year’s series, Delta Live has deployed L-ISA Hyperreal Sound, giving the system its Proms debut and audiences an intensely real audio experience. Here is a video of highlights from the 2018 BBC Proms, including some quick, don't blink or you'll miss the crews loading in the production elements: {youtube}v=IISpqIZl3nY{/youtube}
