For the 2006 European MTV Awards (November 2 at the Copenhagen, Denmark-based Bella Centre), sound designer Derrick Zieba worked alongside an audio team from Britannia Row, with local company DPA Sound handling the live sound from the town square.

One of our goals was to create an SR system with a huge wow factor for the audience, while providing outstanding audio excitement for our TV viewers. There were 3,000 in the Bella Centre with an additional 7,500 in the town square, and knowing that there's a potential TV audience of a staggering 1.4 billion, we had to keep our wits about us. With virtually all artists during the evening choosing Sennheiser mics and wireless personal monitors, it meant that I could go into a live show with confidence. The [Sennheiser] SKM 5200 is really the only choice where broadcast or recording is concerned. You can get a lot of dynamics from them, and they're a very rich-sounding mic. They won't overload the front end on you and have such a great pattern with a really smooth sound.
