Sennheiser highlights wireless success at Lusail

Published: MEA

QATAR: Sennheiser is pointing to the successful installation of its wireless microphone systems at Lusail Iconic Stadium to highlight how its equipment can be deployed for broadcasting sporting events. The systems were used during the 2015 Handball World Cup and will also cover the planned boxing, handball and basketball championships at the stadium as well as live concerts.

A total of 16 channels of Sennheiser’s wireless microphone and receiver systems from the Digital 9000 range have been utilised as well the EW 300-IEM Series in-ear monitors. The heart of the system is the EM 9046 SU multichannel audio receiver. This covers the UHF range from 470 to 798MHz, incorporating up to eight receiving channels in the unit. The SKM-9000 handheld transmitters are used with an MMK-965 capsule that allows for cardioid or super cardioid characteristics. Along with the handheld microphones, presenters can be miked up using Sennheiser’s EarSet 1 headmics and the SK-9000 transmitter. Sennheiser’s directional antennas have been installed in the catwalk, 30m above the playing field.

‘With several hundred million TV viewers watching live, there is no room for error. Thrilling commentaries, pitch-side reports, the roar of the audience and sounds of all the on-field action are essential parts of the viewing experience. Poor audio quality or technical difficulties can hamper this and undermine the tremendous effort that goes into hosting such events,’ said Mig Cardamone, director of sales and marketing at Sennheiser Middle East. ‘The Qatar Olympic Committee realises that high-quality images and high-quality sound go hand in hand. This is reflected in their selection and usage of our most advanced wireless microphone systems.’

‘The positive impact of the installed system was instantly noticeable,’ added Prem Kumar, projects manager at Darwish Holding, the contractor responsible for the audio portion of the deployment. ‘We managed to get it up and running in time for the Men's Handball World Championship and the excellent sound quality was highly praised. This gives us the confidence that it will meet the high expectations set by the Qatar Olympic Committee for the 2022 football tournament.’
