Grand Theatre gets the Q-Sys treatment

Published: ASIA

CHINA: QSC distributor PCI recently supplied the Grand Theatre with a Q-Sys integrated system platform. The new purchase plays a central role at the recently built seven-storey US$50 million theatre in the Gansu Province.

Boasting a 1,500-seat auditorium, a 300-seat hall, a press conference chamber with 150 seats and 20 smaller meeting rooms, the theatre is a multi-disciplinary building that hosts conventions and events as well as drama events and concerts.

Intelligent, networked audio systems are used throughout the facility, and are centrally controlled by the Q-Sys platform. Specifically, Q-Sys is used to process and route the audio in the main auditorium, the 300-seat hall and the building’s PA/VA public address/alarm system. It also controls all individual loudspeakers and amplifiers where required.

Each of the 22 conference rooms at the theatre have their own Q-Sys I/O frame which controls the audio inputs, routing and loudspeakers. All are centrally accessible from the two Q-Sys Core 3000 master processors in the theatre's main control room, to which all of the I/O frames are linked by the building's internal Cat-6 network connections.

Meanwhile, wall-mounted control panels with software running in a variety of local languages allows for individual-room control of the Q-Sys routing and processing functions. Access is also made possible via wireless laptops and tablets for administration and troubleshooting functions throughout the building, meaning that only a few technicians need manage all of the systems.

‘The technical systems at the Gansu theatre set a new standard in intelligent, sustainable systems, within China and beyond,’ commented a Grand Theatre spokesman. ‘Q-Sys plays a large part in setting that standard. The system has been the perfect choice for us.’
