The manufacturer has announced two new members for its Uniline Solution network: Dijon-based Scene et Son and Lyon-headquartered Able. Both companies have invested in Uniline systems, opting for 14 x UL210 and 10 x UL115B.
A conscious choice was made on behalf of each company to invest in the same system configuration for maximum compatibility and versatility when handling major events.
The Uniline Solution was conceived in order to provide a turnkey system with full technical support to as wide an audience as possible, with network members coming from a number of different market sectors.
Eric Chopin, managing director of Able (pictured, right, with system tech Quentin Morichon), commented: “Uniline is powerful, versatile and extremely simple to implement. Having positioned ourselves as both a rental company and full service provider in the Rhone-Alpes region of France, the purchase of a Uniline system was both a logical and strategic step for us to consolidate our position in the market. Having Uniline in our inventory enables us to provide the highest quality service to events of all sizes, from the very smallest local shows to major national or even international events using the Uniline Solution network already in place throughout France.”
“It’s like having ten different systems in one, and we wanted to be sure that our client base was making the most out of their equipment,” said APG’s product manager Mathieu Delquignies, who looks after the Uniline Solution network in France. “It can handle everything from a small 400-seat theatre to a major outdoor festival with audiences of over 10,000 people. In reality, Uniline does in fact qualify as a ‘big’ system, but we’ve cut it in two for maximum modularity and configurability: the system comprises a mid/hi loudspeaker and a separate low-frequency cabinet. With the recent addition of the new dedicated downfill speaker launched at Prolight + Sound in April, it has become even more versatile. As a result, Uniline can be used in just about any situation – flown or ground-stacked – and in any combination.
“We recognise that not everyone who might want to use Uniline is in a position to invest in a system. The Uniline Solution aims to ensure that everyone who wants to use a system has access to one, and with guaranteed results, because, as we all know, when it comes to using a line array, regardless of the intrinsic performance characteristics of the system, 50% of the sound quality depends on how it is set up in the first place. The Uniline Solution exists in order to guarantee our clients, and our clients’ clients, optimal results every time.”
