Audio installs at FIFA Women’s World Cup venues25 July 2011
Stadia in Berlin, Frankfurt (pictured), Dresden and Sinsheim that were used during the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup host extensive installations of Dynacord and Electro-Voice audio equipment.
TV ratings for the tournament were strong across Europe, with the quarter-final drawing more than 16 million viewers in Germany alone. Ultimately, the championship concluded with victory for Japan in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.
Dynacord and Electro-Voice equipment featured at multiple tournament venues. The Olympic Stadium in Berlin was installed with an EV line array system in 2004, comprising 19 arrays of nine XLC 127+ enclosures each. Power comes from remote-controlled EV amps, specifically 43 P3000RLs and 38 P1200RLs.
Meanwhile, at the Glücksgas Stadium in Dresden, a September 2009 installation saw the specification of a Dynacord Promatrix system, Dynacord DSA8405 multi-channel amplifiers with integrated RCM-810 modules, an Electro-Voice NetMax N8000 digital matrix controller, and Electro-Voice FRX+PI enclosures.
Finally, Frankfurt’s Commerzbank Arena – which opened in 2005 – also features solutions from the EVI Audio portfolio. Specific equipment includes 24 EV P3000RL amplifiers, 84 EV FRX+PI series enclosures, multiple EV N8000 network controllers, 31 Dynacord DPA 4120 amplifiers, 74 Dynacord DPA 4140 amplifiers, and six Dynacord DPM 4000 digital audio matrices.
