The VIP Premier Club within Prague’s O2 Arena recently undertook an upgrade of its installed audio system to provide background music as well as greater privacy for its VIP guests.
Prague's O2 Arena is a modern 18,000 capacity venue that hosts a variety of sports, music, and cultural events. There is a range of technology within the venue including a TV studio, internal TV distribution system, and advanced telecommunications.
Jan Plíhal, responsible for media technology at the O2 Arena commented: "The new sound system for the Premier Club requires an unobtrusive installation, with minimum building intervention, that provides ambient sound throughout the entire space.
“The Premier Club is divided into several zones where clients can enjoy more privacy, whether at the central oval bar, corner fireplace or conservatories, the requirement is for a simple-to-operate system that allows both synchronous cover throughout the entire space and separate individual sound zones.”
The audio solution was provided by local specialists, Audiopro. Andrew Žatečka from Audiopro stated: “With regard to the incorporation of sound into the Premier Club we were required to provide a discreet installation, with high-performance and ease of use.
“The Cloud 46-120T Media zone mixer amplifier with proven reliability became the obvious choice for distribution of the audio sources, because everyone can handle its operation, even without much training. We matched the Cloud mixer amplifier with Electro-Voice Evid C8.2 ceiling speakers which are discrete and complement the Cloud sound.”
