Beijing Rings in Chinese Olympic New Year with Adamson

FOH Staff • International News • February 5, 2008

BEIJING In preparation for hosting the 2008 Summer Olympics, China has been cleaning up and modernizing its transit system in Beijing. To honor those who made a valuable contribution to traffic management in the previous year, the city held The Award and Variety Show for Traffic Safety for the Chinese Olympic New Year. Adamson partner Hunan Tian Yin Art Performance Company provided the Adamson system for the show.

Company’s head engineer Mi Ning was the FOH engineer for the event.  The main flown system comprised of eight Y18’s per side.  Two ground stacks consisting of six Spektrix and two Spektrix Sub’s on each side of the stage were used as side fills for the lateral seating areas.  All Adamson speakers were powered with eight Lab.gruppen fP10000qs, two Lab.gruppen fP3400 and six Lab.gruppen fp6400 amps. Processing was handled by Dolby Lake controllers.

The function was organized by the Beijing Traffic Management Bureau and the China Central Television (CCTV) at the Beijing Worker’s Stadium, which is also scheduled to host the football quarter-finals and semi-finals during the up-coming Summer Olympics. The venue was at capacity with a crowd of 6,000, which included the management team of the Beijing government and the Ministry of Public Security.

Many Chinese pop stars, most notably Twins and Sun Nan, as well as the artist who will perform the 2008 Olympic Theme Song  “Forever friends,” and Mr. Wang Yifu, the head coach of China's National Shooting Team, participated in the event.

The show was nationally broadcast on the CCTV (China Central Television) program “Happy in China” on the Eve of the Chinese New Year.
