The Amsterdam Music Theatre Appreciates Ovations

Premier music venue invests in additional Merging Technologies Media Servers and Sequencers

Maarten’s Sound & Vision, Merging Technologies’ distributor for the Netherlands, recently delivered a 6th Ovation system to the Amsterdam Music Theatre.

The Amsterdam Music Theatre is housed in a spectacular building which includes the Amsterdam City Hall and was completed in 1986 after many years of discussion and controversy.  It overlooks the Amstel River and is home to the Dutch National Ballet and The Dutch Opera (DNO) and also has frequent visiting productions by other companies from the Netherlands and abroad. As with any major theatre of this type, it has played host to some of world’s greatest artists and companies.

"Ovation is the perfect playout software, which gives us the opportunity of building complex performances in a fast and efficient way.  When there's an injured dancer or when we travel across the country, we often have to quickly adapt some settings to the venue we're visiting, shorten a piece of music or suddenly have to start it on cue. Ovation works perfectly in combination with the Pyramix software to edit as fast as we need to and provide cues into Ovation without rendering. It's easy to operate, sounds good and has proven its reliability."; commented Michiel Jansen, AVC, the Amsterdam Music Theatre
