Qs for Poet Prince at Abu-Dhabi TV

Recognised as one of the great pieces of ancient poetry, the Rubiayat of Omar Kayan reveals the beauty that is Arabic verse. With this in mind Abu-Dhabi TV took up the challenge of moulding the Pop Idol format to Middle-Eastern sensibilities in the form of 'Amir al Shouara'q' or Prince of Poets.

Broadcast live from the Shatek al Raha Theatre each Friday for ten weeks, the show is staged in front of a live audience, the inaugural edition enjoying the added presence of several local Sheikhs and their VIP guests. "A strong reputation for purity of sound, was essential," said Mr Younes, Head of Engineering for Abu-Dhabi TV. "Our choice was made simpler by knowing Triangle Entertainment Services could provide full system design, operator training, and support."

Although the Shatek al Raha has an installed PA system it proved unsuitable for the level of vocal clarity and intelligibility required for such a nuanced competition; "Even slight inflections of voice convey subtle meaning," explained Triangle's MD Zahid Elian. "We recommended a PA system based upon d&b audiotechnik's excellent Q-Series systems. Ideal for the demands on clarity, it provided total controlled coverage throughout the theatre, yet is small enough not to compromise the beautiful architecture for which the al Raha is renowned." Triangle installed a flown system of Q1, Q7 and Q-SUBS, all run from D12 amplifiers with d&b's ROPE C Remote control software providing precise system control.

The show is receiving plaudits all over the Middle East, both for content and the excellent production values, 'King of Sound for Prince of Poets.'
