International news highlights from the world of live sound, recording, broadcast, postproduction and A/V
 

Chesapeake Energy Arena

Oklahoma City’s premier large event venue, the Chesapeake Energy Arena is also home to the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder. Modernising its sound system for the Thunder’s 2016-17 season, it now has the first large-scale use of Fulcrum’s CS121 subwoofers and the NBA’s first permanent installation of EAW’s Anya adaptive-array system.

Designed by Marsh/PMK’s Jerrold Stevens and installed by Ford A/V, the advanced technology audio solution gives the Oklahoma City Thunder a sound to match their name. ‘The sound system needed excellent intelligibility, fidelity, output and bandwidth to enhance the overall fan experience and become more competitive with other NBA arenas,‘ Stevens explains.

Enduring Memories of Hangzhou

Staged for world leaders alongside the China G20 Summit and directed by Zhang Yimou, the public debut of Enduring Memories of Hangzhou took place at the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province where it retained much original programme content and added a new audio system.

A cultural fusion of East and West, the production features a symphony orchestra and gala on water, and is a unique outdoor concert in a natural setting. Through a significant feat of engineering, the stage platform lies centimetres below the West Lake’s surface. To the audience, the actors appear to be performing on the surface of the water, which also creates a reflection of the performance and lighting.

 Philharmonie Luxembourg

Yamaha’s Rivage PM10 digital mixing console has secured its first permanent European installation at a classical concert venue.

Home to the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, the Philharmonie Luxembourg is a thoroughly modern concert complex that was opened 11 years ago and is visited by around 180,000 people every year. The venue owns all of its own sound and lighting equipment and, since opening, has featured Yamaha PM5D and M7CL-32 digital consoles. This year, the venue upgraded to a Rivage PM10 and a CL5.

Théâtre National de Chaillot’s Jean Vilar Hall

With the sound reinforcement system in Paris’ prestigious Théâtre National de Chaillot’s Jean Vilar Hall due to be replaced, French manufacturer Amadeus Audio imagined a solution that would go beyond the limits of traditional technologies such as stereo, 5.1 surround or any conventional system.

Alongside its studio monitors, Amadeus has established itself as a premiere manufacturer of high-end systems for live and installed sound throughout Europe and Asia. At the Théâtre National de Chaillot, Amadeus has conspired with mixing console manufacturer Solid State Logic, amplifier company Lab.gruppen and 3D sound pioneer Sonic Emotion over a one-of-a-kind electro-acoustic sound system.
