Press tour of the Bosch company from the stadiums of the NSC "Olympiyskiy" and "Lviv-Arena"

"Lviv-Arena" and NSC "Olympic": the EV sound for the national arenas.

Ukraine. Kyiv-Lviv. March 5-8, 2012.

In January 2012 the SoundHouse Pro company was recognized as the best installer of Electro‑Voice stadium sound systems in 2011 for the installations at two of four stadiums for games of the EURO-2012 in Ukraine: the NSC "Olympic" and "Arena Lviv". Already in March 2012 the Bosch company has arranged a press-tour for the leading sound equipment magazines and Bosch representatives to these two stadiums.

The press delegation included following journalists and magazines:

The visit to the stadiums included overview of many premises usually not available during a regular visit to the match, and of course, the technical rooms with all the elements of the sound and video surveillance systems.

The press-tour began in Kyiv, where the guests have had a tour of the NSC "Olympic" stadium and a demonstration of the stadium PA sound system based on the Electro-Voice speaker systems and electronics. Here they had the opportunity to assess the sound quality by ear and check all the nuances of the installation.

The journalists have checked and heard the speakers of the stadium sound system and noted both the choice of the speaker systems and their spatial arrangement on special trusses at different angles according to the acoustic calculations in order to create the best sound coverage in the stadium.

Next point of interest were the electronics RACKs in the switching rooms and a software control complex for the sound system of the entire stadium in the main control room, developed and tuned by the specialists of the Sound House Pro company.

The next morning the reporters got a flight to Lviv and after lunch they went to the second stadium.

The program of the visit also consisted of a general tour and a technical overview. The "Arena Lviv" stadium sound system's difference to NSC “Olympic” was not only in the color of the speaker systems and their total number, but also in the method of their suspension. The cabinets here were suspended on circular trusses unlike the curved constructions in Kyiv stadium which was preconditioned by a different design of the stadium itself.

The journalists also got acquainted with the switching rooms and the software control complex, have visited the operators cabin, where they particularly noted the choice of the legendary Electro-Voice RE20 microphone for the sports commentators.
