Renkus-Heinz ICONYX arrays partner LED billboard in Hong Kong26 November 2007
The audio system needed to partner the Daktronics ProStar screen had to combine powerful long-throw capability (to cover the immediate area of the screen, the station entrance and the adjacent open area) with tightly focused sound, preventing noise spill to the nearby towers. A competitive loudspeaker ‘shoot out’ organised by Renkus-Heinz Hong Kong distributor CAH Professional Sound resulted in the selection of self-powered ICONYX IC24 arrays, supplied in fully-weatherised versions and mounted one apiece on both sides of the screen.
The system – installed by local AV contractor South China House of Technology Consultants – was optimised with the use of Renkus-Heinz BeamWare software.
“It was crucial to be able to deliver high-quality sound without creating a noise nuisance for the Union Square residents, and the ICONYX solution delivers magnificently on both counts,” said CAH’s John Ho.
