Allen & Heath’s Avantis Makes Debut in India

Allen & Heath event, Mumbai

Sun Infonet Pvt Ltd., Allen & Heath’s exclusive distributor for India, marked the launch of the much-anticipated Avantis digital console with a series of events.

Taking place at prestigious hotels across four cities in India: Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai, each launch event was led by Allen & Heath’s Director of Sales (APAC) Jamie Ward and featured a presentation on the making of Avantis, an in-depth rundown of its features and a Q&A session.

The events also included one-on-one time with the console and guest demonstrations from some of India’s most prominent sound engineers and artists. Feedback from attendees has been incredibly positive and many took the opportunity to have their questions answered by the team.

Avantis is the third mixer based on Allen & Heath’s 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine and provides engineers with Continuity UI, extensive I/O options, add-on processing from the flagship dLive mixing system and a rugged full metal chassis.

“This incredible console not only improves the overall workflow for engineers but is armed with all the essential features needed to execute a smooth show (big or small) some of which can be found in the most high-end consoles. Avantis is bound to be a game changer in the field of broadcast and live shows,” comments Neeraj Chandra, Director, Sun Infonet Pvt Ltd.

Avantis has already received many gleaming reviews from end users who have tested it in the field.

“This is a really awesome product with a metal body built for rugged use in the Indian climate. The unique design can be tailored to individual engineer requirements and it’s easily transported from one place to another,” commented Delhi-based rental company owner, Tanish Sakhuja.

Jayakaran, Sr.Live Sound Manager at Sun Infonet and FOH Engineer for Vic and the Big Fish, added,“Vic and the Big Fish had been signed up to perform at the showcase and show the real field operation of the console to those who were in attendance. With limited time for soundcheck, Avantis showed its capabilities on day one - the band was extremely happy with what they heard on their IEMs and I was happy with the way they sounded with minimal processing. Thanks to Avantis’ preamps and continuity UI, it just gives me the controls I need right at my fingertips.”

“Avantis is the best upgrade for customers who are looking for a 64-channel console, with 96kHz next-gen technology, more auxes more FX at the best possible ROI”, concludes Tanmay Masurkar, Sun Infonet’s in-house Audio Engineer.
