We worked with Auditoria and David Atkins Enterprises to supply communications systems to support the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for this signature event. Two tonnes of equipment and four technicians left our Sydney office less than four weeks after our first briefing. Soon after, Auditoria and The P.A. People were asked to supply three additional comms systems to support sports presentation at the venues.
Constant Voltage or 100v line audio systems are an ideal setup for retail, commercial and large scale distributed audio systems due to the cable distances allowed and simplicity of design and installation. As mentioned in the previous article they are ideal for systems that require more than 2 or 4 speakers per amplifier channel.
The P.A. People provides a number of crucial elements for the event including wired communications, full duplex wireless communications, program audio distribution between sites, time code distribution, lighting data transmission as well as integration of the two way radio system. All of these elements are crucially integrated using a network centric approach that has been developed over a number of years of providing communications solutions to large- scale international ceremonies.
