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.
