RCF rumbles in New Delhi
INDIA: Vijender Singh recently defended his WBO Asia-Pacific Super Middleweight title against Tanzania's Francis Cheka by TKO in front of a crowd of more than 5,000 spectators at Thyagraj Stadium in New Delhi. In addition, to those seated in the stands, the event was broadcast on Star Sports to an audience of millions. New Delhi-based rental company Audio Factory was hired to supply the technical infrastructure, including lighting, trussing and LED screens, as well as an audio solution, for which it turned to RCF’s D-Line.
Audio Factory’s goal was to provide a suitable solution for the live audience that would translate well to Star Sports’ broadcast. The RCF setup comprised a total of 32 HDL20-A cabinets. Half of these were flown in four clusters of four – one in each corner of the ring – while the additional 16 served as delays. Handling the lows were 12 SUB 8006-AS subwoofers, ground stacked on the stage.
‘In view of its quality and the fact that it is powered and process controlled, the HDL20-A easily managed to provide good intelligibility and even coverage right across the stadium,’ reported Audio Factory director Vivek Vij, who designed the solution.
