Cloud delivers wireless control at Winter Olympics legacy venue13 July 2015
The Olympic Park in Utah, built for the 2002 Winter Olympics, has recently been fitted with an expanded audio system as the venue hosts a range of events throughout the year and serves as a training centre for Olympic and development athletes.
The Park originally hosted the bobsleigh, skeleton, luge, ski jumping and Nordic Combined events during the 2002 games. The Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation, which runs the venue, aims to ensure the long-term viability and relevance of Utah’s Olympic Legacy.
At the venue there are six Nordic Ski Jumps, a 1,335m sliding track, freestyle aerials winter training and competition hill and a 2,000,000-US gallon training pool.
The revamped audio system installed has added flexibility to accommodate increased visitor numbers and the wide variety of events now hosted at the Olympic Park, including the Flying Ace All-Stars Freestyle Show.
Using a Cloud DCM-1e Zoned Audio Mixer at the heart of the audio system and a number of Cloud CXV and VTX series amplifiers connected to existing SoundTube and One Systems high and low impedance loudspeakers, the DCM-1e allows for wireless zone control and show mode presets at the touch of a button from the front panel or remotely via a mobile device.
