Genelec 8351 monitors help NEP ‘tame the truck’ for latest UHD vehicles

Paul Fournier and Neville Hooper of NEP UK

NEP’s UK operation in Bracknell is one of the largest OB providers in Europe, and when a fire at its premises in November 2015 destroyed five of its OB vehicles, the speed at which the company responded was quite astounding; the fire occurred on a Tuesday, and they were out working again by the weekend.

This unfortunate incident did, however, provide NEP with an opportunity to create a fleet of four brand new UHD trucks, and in this exclusive One On One video interview, Paul Fournier and Neville Hooper of NEP UK guide viewers around their Aurora truck to share secrets of how they tackle the challenges of working in the acoustic environment of an OB vehicle.

These are challenges that Genelec has helped NEP conquer, since 8351 SAM monitors form the heart of the truck’s 5.1 audio monitoring system. Having spent the day at HHB in London auditioning a host of monitors, “we came to the 8351s, and we both looked at each other and went ‘Wow!’ The presentation is very open, they’re easy to listen to and the directionality is superb. With a bit of help from the SAM DSP as well, you can iron out any of the really nasty resonances and things that will go on in a room of this nature.”
