Demonstrating the performance consistency and system reliability of Crown Audio’s CTs Series amplifiers in concert with the efficient network capability of Crown’s IQ Series network cards, Beijing’s new 18,000-seat Wukesong Indoor Stadium, home to the basketball competitions at the 2008 Summer Olympics, features a complement of three Crown CTs600 amplifiers, two CTs1200 amplifiers, two CTs3000 amplifiers networked via seven Crown IQ3-PIP-Lite cards and Harman’s HiQnet™ system configuration and control protocol. The networked amplifiers drive 22 JBL Professional Control 29AV-1 loudspeakers. Situated in Western Beijing, the 63,000-square meter facility was completed in January 2008 and after the Olympic basketball preliminaries and finals will become a major cultural, recreational center for the citizens of Beijing, integrating cultural, sporting and commercial facilities with large-scale gardens and green space. The audio design required engineers to specify and install a system that would sound great despite the resonant surfaces of the large space. Bcause the system would enjoy a second life after the games reliability, scalability and versatility needed to be balanced carefully with the budgetary limitations. “The Crown CTs Series is a proven performer for installed sound applications and, together with the JBL Professional loudspeakers, will provide Olympic basketball fans and the citizens of Beijing with quality audio for years to come,� noted Marc Kellom, Vice President of Marketing, Crown Audio. “And because CTs amplifiers are so easily networked using IQ-PIP cards and HiQnet, the system is optimally configured for the games but can be easily configured and controlled for many future applications via the HiQnet™ System Architect™ user interface.:� Crown’s CTs Series amplifiers provide exceptional performance, flexibility and value for installed sound applications. CTs Series amplifiers feature independent selection of high and low impedance operation for a specific channel, plus power levels and features that were carefully chosen to match the requirements of fixed install design. Crown Audio PIP Lite integrates Ethernet-based network control via 100-Mb TCP/IQ protocol for digital control of analog devices with digital signal control for error trapping, proactive response and remote load monitoring.
