Austrian rental firm Prangl used a range of aerial work platforms to help set up a live broadcast of one of the most popular shows on German-language television.

Carmen Nebel's Saturday night music show 'Welcome in with Carmen Nebel' regularly attracts up to 10 million viewers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Prangl used two 17 m working height articulated booms, two 8 m scissors and two 11 m mast lifts to help construct the stage and attach spotlights and sound the system to the ceiling of the Graz's town hall in Germany.

Nearly 350 people were working at the venue on the night of the show, which boasted a number of well known singers, including Eros Ramazotti, Rolando Villazon, Il Divo, Patrica Kaas and Chris de Burgh, along with local celebrity Andreas Gabalier.
