Western North Carolina Nature Center Upgrades to Technomad

IMAGOS Entertainment in Miami writes,

“I hope all is well with you and the folks at Technomad!

I just wanted to share with you some pictures from a recent project involving Technomad loudspeakers and mounts.

These pictures are from the WNC Nature Center‘s new Grand Entrance and Festival Events Plaza. We installed three 70v Viennas and mounts with one of the speakers providing audio to the new entrance parking area and the other two units providing coverage the Plaza.  …the weatherproof Vienna’s provide excellent sound reinforcement for live events as well as regular and seasonal background music.  The client was very impressed with the quality of sound and it’s ability to withstand the elements (the Vienna that provides audio to the parking entrance is fully exposed and was constantly getting rained on while we were installing it!).

The last picture from this group is from a previous Technomad installation at the Zoo (you may remember it as the Otter Falls exhibit).

I call it “Technomad: Communing with Nature”. By the way, that system is still going strong and used everyday without issue.

If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.

Thank you,

Amazing Stadium and Pool Project, Ethiopia

Remarkable photos shared by our importer in Ethiopia.  An array of Noho Ci and Berlin loudspeakers provide audio for the brand-new Woldiya Stadium.  The stadium has a capacity of 25,600, and was completed in late 2016. [ Have a smaller stadium that needs audio?  Check out our Turn-Key Stadium PA Systems. ]

The Ethiosport blog writes “construction of the stadium will create opportunities for Woldia to host national and international competitions as it meets FIFA and IAAF requirements.

The Stadium has 10 entrance gates, a swimming pool, an eight lane competition track as well as basketball, handball, volleyball and tennis courts.

The facility also offers a world class lap swimming pool, and a competition level diving platform – both with Technomad audio systms as well.

These loudspeakers traveled a long way from our South Deerfield factory – over 6730 miles (10831 km).

Loudspeakers at the Waterpark – Adventure Cove, Singapore

Remarkable photos shared by RockComms in Singapore, of Technomad loudspeakers and subwoofers installed at the Adventure Cove Waterpark (Bluewater Bay).  The water park is part of Resorts World Sentosa which operates
the Universal Studio franchise in Singapore.

In addition to the awesome flying whale sculptures (!) you can see the Technomad Berlin 6040 full range loudspeaker in Desert Sand color, some Oslo 18 subwoofers (originally developed for Disney Imagineering) also in Desert Sand, and pole–mounted Paris 616 loudspeakers.

Singapore presents a tough environment for loudspeakers, with average temperatures around 31º C (88º F) during the day with little seasonal variation. Singapore receives a considerable amount of rainfall – approximately 2340mm (92 inches) annually. The region is extremely humid, with humidity levels usually between 70% and 90%. (Source: World Travel Guide).

That’s just the standard weather – add the corrosive environment of a chlorinated pool and you have an extraordinary challenge for any loudspeaker.  Fortunately Technomad’s military-grade construction and no-compromises audio design is ready to meet the challenge.

Managing the Mountain – DragonFly Portable PA At Mt Hood

“Hi Technomad –

 

Here are pictures I took at our race this past weekend…

The upgraded Dragonfly Portable PA System worked great.  The automatic reduction of volume for the aux input is excellent.

 

We had 225 kids racing, ranging in age from 5-13, and each kid got two runs.   We used the speaker for announcing names of racers as they approach the finish line and at awards.  From the pictures you can see the size of the areas we are broadcasting to.

 

Thanks,

– Jason, Mt Hood Ski School
