Based in Bangalore, Total Productions got off to a very promising start with its new system. Buying the rider-friendly GEO D system helped the company to win a prestigious contract to provide sound for legendary American rock band MR. BIG on the India leg of their reunion world tour, and to beat stiff competition to service the opening ceremony for the 2009 IWAS World Games (paralympics).
Total Productions started life as an event management company, promoting concerts, explains Head of Operations Francis Perry. “Having used most of the sound rental companies in our region over the last 15 years, we knew all the points of difference for the PA systems that were available. In 2003, we decided to get into the rental business ourselves, and started looking for a world-class system that would do justice to the kind of projects we were being asked to handle.”
Perry and his colleagues went around the world to audition various systems, ending up with a shortlist of three manufacturers. “We had technical demos, and we also attended festivals and shows: at the end of it all, there was one answer to all our questions Nexo!”
Nexo’s Indian distributor Sun Infonet Pvt Ltd supplied 24x GeoD10 arrayable modules, 12x CD18 subbass units, 4x NX242 TDcontrollers fitted with ES4 EtherSound cards, 8x PS15 stage monitors with controllers, and a quantity of CAMCO Vortex 6 amplifiers. Sun Infonet director Neeraj Chandra sealed the deal with a convincing demonstration of system power by another GEO D user, Delta Sound (Aizawl) in Mizoram.
“GEO D delivers the three things we were looking for,” says Francis Perry. “It has exceptional tonal quality; the sound is crystal-clear and transparent, yet so powerful. The pattern control is amazing: take a walk across a big field or arena, and you will find uniform dispersion which is not very common to many other loudspeakers. Nexo is rider-friendly, GEO D is one of the most accepted systems in the world. Front-of-house engineers from India who have worked abroad are surprised and delighted to find GEO D here at home. And GEO D will ultimately give us a great return on our investment.”
Total Productions is already confirmed to handle several prestigious regional festivals, and is in the process of finalising international tours. “Having a product like Nexo helps mark us out from the crowd. Since we bought the GEO D, we’ve found out that there is a great market for quality sound, and that our clients are prepared to pay a premium for Nexo. High-quality sound is like a drug, and we’re not the only addicts!”
