German sound reinforcement specialist TW AUDiO has announced that the recent KoSound exhibition in Seoul, Korea, saw it take orders for more than 200 pieces of its new flagship Vera 36 line array alongside the Vera S33 subwoofer. The order followed the system’s debut in Korea in conjunction with the manufacturer’s exclusive distributor Star Networks.
Two companies – Tri Star Audio and Monkey Sound – are reported to have participated in the order, while TW AUDiO managing director Bernhard Wuestner has commented that the deal represents both ‘rental companies and big ongoing installation projects’ adopting the Vera 36 system.
Each Vera 36 line array element comprises two 10-inch and two 8-inch woofers plus two 1.4-inch LF sections, while the accompanying cardioid Vera S33 subwoofer boasts an 18-inch at the front and a 15-inch chassis at its rear.
‘To be honest we were very surprised,’ enthused Mr Wuestner. ‘It’s amazing and of course we are more than pleased. It shows us how important the Korean market is and that you have to understand the requirements of the Korean people – they have very high expectations of sound quality. It’s a trend globally to produce smaller and smaller speakers, lighter and easier to set-up, and that’s the key for the future. I think we’re going the right way.’
"Asia Times - Tadao and million lectures in 2012" was held on the Expo area at the Mercedes Benz Cultural Center. The lecture was one of a series of cultural exchange activities in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Sino-Japanese diplomacy. Yao Ming and Wang Shi, invited as honored guests, exchanged successful experiences with Tadao Ando, the Japanese architect.
Shanghai Bo Shun Company provided the TW AUDiO sound system. When we consider speech reinforcement in large-volume venues with a long reverberation, any sound reinforcement system is a huge challenge.
TW AUDiO system used for this application:
Main sound system: 2x 14 VERA10 in combination with 2x2 VERA L24, 12x VERA S30 Sub
Side fill system: 2x 8 VERA10 in combination with 2x2 VERA L24
Monitor system: 8x M12
Amps: 16x Powersoft K3DSP AESOP
The Race of Champions in the Düsseldorf Esprit Arena, with 34,000 spectators, was organised this time by Multisound using TW AUDiO systems. Vettel, Schuhmacher & Co delivered exciting races over the two days, culminating in an after-show party to wind things up.
The prime concern was getting the sound right in the arena, and that was done with an acoustic simulation using EASE Focus. To take account of the long echo time and so to optimise voice and music, a total of ten ground stacks each with four VERA10 line array elements and two S30 basses were used on the straights, while sound in the curves was achieved with a total of eight ground stacks each with one T24 and two S30 basses.
The whole system was driven and monitored using 24 Powersoft K3DSP AESOP amps and the associated ARMONIA software.
To achieve the highest level of audio quality possible, a 450 m long redundant CAT5 network ring was used, making it possible not only to control and monitor the Powersoft K3DSPs, but also transmitting 4 digital AES-EBU audio signals in parallel as well from the control desk to the power amplifiers.
The SmaartV7 measurement system meant that the complete TW AUDiO sound system could be optimised for the Esprit Arena and adjusted to it's existing sound system for the upper rows within an extremely tight time window.
The TW AUDiO RENTAL POOL has been expanded with 20 K3DSP-AESOP amplifiers and 84 loudspeakers.
Besides superb sound quality and extreme portability, several rental company's are seeing the huge benefits of this rental pool and are selling their "old" stuff to be replaced by TW AUDiO.
Not only Belgium is getting warm for TW AUDiO, see this video of the recent held JAPEX (Jakarta Pro Audio Exhibition).
