Shanghai radio and arts centre installs L-ISA immersive sound system

China:

Rightway Audio Consultants (Racpro) has installed an L-Acoustics sound system for Shanghai Media Group (SMG), which is said to be the first permanent immersive installation of its kind on Mainland China. SMG is one of China’s largest media conglomerates, catering to radio, television, film and digital entertainment.

With an aim to revolutionise its radio operations, SMG built the Radio Shanghai Arts Centre, which includes a sunken plaza, eight online live broadcasting studios, a workshop, an outdoor patio and an immersive studio. The latter is equipped with L-Acoustics L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound Technology, which will enable SMG to host creative performances for the public.

Racpro worked with Alvin Koh, application director Asia Pacific at L-Acoustics and SMG to design an L-ISA configuration that would fit the space and performance requirements of the venue. The team installed five arrays of one A10 Focus with two A10 Wide enclosures, each for the main system. Two hangs of two A10 Wide on either side of the Scene system extend the panoramic aspect, while four X8s are rigged in the ceiling above the audience and nine on the peripherals. The four KS21 flown behind the centre array extend the system response down to 29Hz. At the back of the stage is an LED screen intended for high-quality visuals, and a BlackTrax tracking system was employed for the venue launch event, which integrates into the L-ISA Controller to track performers and match the audio to their movements.

At the grand opening of Radio Shanghai Arts Centre, government officials and industry leaders were in attendance for a night of dance and classical music. “Racpro has a long-standing relationship with SMG, supporting projects in recent years that contribute to the group’s dynamic,” said Nan Hu, marketing director at Racpro. “SMG’s technical team has always held L-Acoustics in high regard, due to its innovation in technology and its range of premium quality offerings, so it made sense that, when they looked to innovate at Shanghai Radio Arts Centre, they would turn to L-ISA immersive sound technology.”

The launch of the new technology has received positive feedback and praise from the performers and audience alike. SMG has hosted concerts and other immersive events since the installation was completed. Hu concluded: “I feel that Racpro has helped SMG take a vital step towards the future and impose themselves as a leader in the Chinese – and the world’s – media industry.”
