Roy Thomson Hall is home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and hosts some of the world’s biggest acts and events throughout the year, including the Toronto International Film Festival.
To handle its diverse performance requirements, the 2,630 seat hall recently upgraded it’s front of house and monitor positions with dual Avid VENUE | S6L systems installed by Solotech Toronto that share I/O over an Ethernet AVB network.
“Having the backward file compatibility with the previous VENUE systems will really help our users and guest engineers feel comfortable, in that they can bring a file that they were used to using on to the new system without having to rebuild. That was a big selling point. I don’t think anyone else has really got that to the same degree. I’ve experienced it myself, bringing VENUE [show] files into the new system, and with the exception of effects return changes, it traveled perfectly. It was just like how I left it, except it just sounded way better!”
