Bosch and Electro-Voice Safe and Sound at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center
Known as the "Sea Crown" in China, the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center has installed a range of security and sound solutions from Bosch and Electro-Voice to ensure smooth operations in all its venues. The implemented products already functioned reliably during the 14th FINA World Championships in 2011. Going forward, they will continue to secure smooth operations at all times.
Close to Huangpu River and next to the Expo Park in Shanghai's Pudong New Area, the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center is an integrated sports venue used mainly for aquatic activities. The complex occupies an area of almost 35 hectares and includes an 18,000-seat arena and an aquatic center complete with outdoor diving pool. When the center hosts large events like the FINA World Championships, security, emergency notification, and contingency planning are all of the utmost importance: This is where systems from Bosch and Electro-Voice come into play.
Shanghai Oriental Sports Center is equipped with a fully networked, remote-controllable sound reinforcement system from Electro-Voice. The main system features horn-loaded EVH loudspeakers, with distributed audio via ZX and SX models. The system is driven by Electro-Voice Precision Series amplifiers. REV wireless, N/DYM handheld, and PolarChoice table top microphones complete the Electro-Voice spec.
Public address & evacuation system
Bosch also provided the center with advanced public address solutions including Praesideo digital public address and evacuation systems, ceiling speakers, and other cabinet loudspeakers, providing clear, seamless audio for paging and announcements across all audience sections.
Video surveillance system
Over 1,000 cameras have been installed in the complex to achieve 360-degree real-time supervision with excellent performance. These include Bosch day/night cameras and AutoDome day/night cameras.
