Yinji “O” Show China
The Yinji "O" Show complex has recently been fitted out with D.A.S. professional sound systems
The Yinji “O” Show complex, located in the new district of Kaifeng in China’s Henan province, has recently been fitted out with D.A.S. Audio professional sound systems. From live concerts to lighting and laser shows, projections on water screens and fountain shows to fireworks, this impressive venue has been designed with an enormous range of possibilities in mind. Equipped with the cutting-edge technology required for shows of this caliber, the Yinji “O” Show’s massive central ring is the largest of its kind in the world.
This 46 m high and 36 m wide “O”-shaped central structure is located opposite the main stands. This 22 meter-wide covered area can hold up to 11,000 spectators and was packed for the Yinji “O” Show’s opening night last October during the Kaifeng Chrysanthemum Festival, headlined by world-renowned South Korean star PSY.
Local company Beijing Jiaruifeng System Project Technology LTD was contracted to handle the Yinji “O” Show sound install and called in D.A.S. Audio’s China distributor Acton Audio&Musical Instruments to collaborate on design and supervision. After studying the particular requirements of the venue the technical team decided to deploy versatile and robust line array systems from the D.A.S. Aero Series 2 catalogue of products.
Finally, the sound team decided to deploy 48 Aero 12A powered line array systems wich have been stacked in 8 blocks of 6 systems each. For bass frequency reinforcement, technicians have installed 16 LX-218C high performance subwoofer systems, also ground stacked.
The team also brought in eight weather-resistant D.A.S. WR-6415DX systems to serve as stage monitors. These rugged systems boast a fiberglass coating and extensive waterproofing which make them the ideal solution for outdoor installations. The audio system was rounded out with six powerful D.A.S. DSP-2060A digital processors, critical for correct system time alignment.
The technical team’s sound design and the performance and power of the D.A.S. Audio systems resulted in superb sound coverage with uniform SPL levels through the Yinji “O” Show. Venue owners Yinji Development Company were pleased with the result: “We’re pleasantly surprised by the solution proposed by Beijing Jiaruifeng and Acton with the D.A.S. Aero Series 2 systems. They managed to cover the technical specifications with even less units than originally planned and those proposed by other brands”.
“The massive power and response of the Aero 12As combined with the efficiency and professionalism of the technical team allowed us to get the system up and running in the shortest time possible. Both our director and our audiovisual consultant have commented on the power and quality of the Aero 12As. We are very pleased with D.A.S. Audio’s choice and are convinced that the systems will help make our “O” Show the leading show in the region”.
