Barco, Full Dimension and Sounds & Motion at the Grand Theatre
CHINA: Barco Audio Technologies recently partnered with Full Dimension and Sounds & Motion to complete an Iosono Core audio processor installation at the Shanghai Grand Theatre. The three companies have worked together in the past, including the delivery of ‘an immersive sound experience’ at Shanghai’s North Bund Opera week in 2015.
The Shanghai Grand Theatre’s gallery has undergone a refurbishment, modernised with the inclusion of a new 3D sound gallery. This is what Barco, Full Dimension and Sounds & Motion equipped with Barco’s Iosono Core.
‘Planning this project was challenging, as we were dealing with an almost 60m long room with stone floor and glass doors. With Barco’s Iosono sound installation it is now possible to use the gallery in a variety of ways,’ noted Siwei Zou, composer and president of Full Dimension. ‘Playing subtle ambient effects is just as possible as creating spectacular movements of sounds throughout the 3D sound gallery.’
The gallery is now open and used for live events and exhibitions, which make use of atmospheric background music via the 3D audio setup.
