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

Large-Scale Outdoor Sound Masking / Sonic Net Airport Bird Deterrent

Technomad supplies fully weatherproof, high powered outdoor sound systems for sound masking, environmental sound simulation, and to repel birds from airport and farm environments.

A recent article in The Economist describes the use of a sonic net to repel birds from airports. This reduces the chance of a bird hitting an aircraft – known as ‘bird-strike’ in the aviation industry – and the associated risk to passengers and equipment.

The scientific journal Ecological Applications describes the use of  Technomad Berlin outdoor loudspeakers and waterproof PowerChiton amplifiers to create a Sonic Net – an area of background noise that repels birds.

The systems deliver 80 dB of broad-spectrum sound over the target area, and dramatically reduce the presence of many species of bird. Ecological Applications suggest that the reason the sound repels birds is not by scaring them (as with ‘startle’ systems that occasionally play loud surprising sounds) but rather by making it hard for them to communicate. The Sonic Net makes birds unable to make out each other’s calls, so they move away to an area where they CAN communicate.

Original research by Dr John Swaddle suggests that broad spectrum sound masking may be very effective at reducing dangerous bird populations near airports, and may also be effective at reducing crop losses.

With our line of waterproof, field deployable amplifiers, broad spectrum waterproof loudspeakers, and automatic audio playback devices, Technomad has a range of products ready to help with your bird repelling project.

Turn-Key solutions arrive ready to use, and last for years in the harshest outside environments.

Technomad gear equipment is US-made since 1995.  The firm supplies the US government, Disney, Universal Studios, all major Cruise Ship lines, Club Med, and thousands of other demanding customers.
