Erikson Pro: Install and Touring Professional Audio



Originally built for the World Cup in 1950, Brazil’s iconic Maracana stadium will host many of the major matches in the FIFA World Cup 2014, including the final on 13th July, with audio managed by the stadium’s GLD digital mixer from Allen & Heath.
Located in Rio de Janeiro, Maracana was closed for a 3-year major renovation, reopening last year with a GLD-80 mixer. Fitted with a Dante network card, the mixer controls audio distribution around the entire stadium through fibre optic cables.
“The main reason we chose GLD was because of Allen & Heath’s fantastic sound quality, reliability and ease of use,” explains Augusto Bergamim, sound manager and system programmer at the Maracana.
The stadium will host four group games and next round games, a quarter final game, and the final.
