Tommex Zebrowscy has installed an extensive Dynacord spec at the newly-constructed 10,000-seater stadium of Polish soccer team Gliwicki Klub Sportowy Piast Gliwice.
A brand new home for the club that is set to be fully completed by the end of 2011, the Stadion Piast will set up to 10,000 spectators and will be the first stadium in the Silesia region to comply with UEFA’s stringent regulators for international stadia – including those dealing with sound reinforcement and evacuation systems.
The Breslau branch of Polish Dynacord distributor Tommex Zebrowscy Sp.K. was enlisted to design and install the new audio system. Opting for a mostly Dynacord-based system, Tommex pressed ahead with a solution combining pro sound and evacuation systems – as requested by the stadium managers. A key facilitator in this regard is the P64 audio matrix manager, which allows an entire audio network with 32 audio channels to be configured and controlled via Ethernet and IRIS-net software. As a result, the stadium can independently address the needs of the grandstands, stadium interiors, VIP boxes, dressing rooms and entrance areas.
The amplification specification includes six Dynacord DSA 8805s and two DSA 8405s, each of which is remotely controlled and monitored via an RCM 810 module. The feature-set of these devices allows the fire brigade or police to cut into the programme material at any moment with an important announcement.
In five different parts of the stadium interior, wall-mounted UV 300 mixers and PWS-6 wall-operated panels have been provided for signal and volume control, while an installed touchpanel warns of any error conditions or defects. The Dynacord CMS 1600 mixing console in the announcers’ booth features an integrated USB 2.0 port, allowing it to be supplied directly with signals from sources such as PCs.
