Eccles Center for The Performing Arts Chooses Lectrosonics

Eccles Center purchased 18 Lectrosonics LMa beltpack transmitters and six HH handheld transmitters.

Opened in 1998, The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center is part of the Park City School District. The venue serves as the anchor facility of the renowned Sundance Film Festival and is host to a wide range of student and professional cultural events.

With the facility’s diverse program schedule, wireless microphone technology is integral to many of the performances that take place here. In order to ensure the best possible wireless capabilities, the venue recently invested in Digital Hybrid Wireless technology from Rio Rancho, Lectrosonics.

David Hallock is the Production Manager at Eccles Center for the Performing Arts, where he is responsible for all general venue oversight, which includes purchasing, scheduling, and design. He also oversees technical direction for all school district sponsored events. Being involved in so many aspects of the facility’s operations, it comes as no surprise that quality sound reinforcement is a high priority for Hallock.

He discussed the Eccles Center’s purchase of 18 Lectrosonics LMa beltpack transmitters, six HH handheld transmitters, three Venue mainframe receiver systems fully stocked with Lectrosonics’ VRS receiver modules, and a pair of ALP650 Log Periodic Dipole Array (LPDA) antennas.

“We purchased our Lectrosonics equipment in the fall of 2013,” said David. “From an audio quality perspective, Lectrosonics’ lack of companding offers truly un-coloured audio performance and excellent response. Equally important, the very narrow band transmission capabilities of the transmitters, along with the rock-solid stability of the company’s Digital Hybrid Wireless system made this equipment the ideal choice for future proofing ourselves against the expected sale of the 600 band of wireless spectrum.”

Among the many projects at Eccles Center, Hallock recently utilised the new Lectrosonics equipment with the Park City School District’s staging of Bye Bye Birdie, the popular musical inspired by the phenomenon of legendary singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957.

“We used the new LMa transmitters and Venue receivers on our production this past November,” said David. “Using the Lectrosonics system in combination with our existing sub 600MHz wireless equipment, we were able to run 36 channels for two and a half weeks with absolutely no dropouts. I was also very impressed with the durability of the equipment. The LMa transmitters held up to everything the students had to offer - without so much as a scratch.”
