China - Work Pro Audio, the installation and pro audio division of Equipson, has made an inroad into the Chinese market by supplying the country with its first SL210A Line Array system.
The system has been delivered to Freelancer Production Company, a theatre and event production company that specialises in audio equipment rental to theatres in Hong Kong and touring artists on the mainland China. Since its delivery in September it has already been used at the 3,000 seater Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Hong Kong for a musical theatre production celebrating the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China.
The SL210A Line Array was specified by sound system designer Camus Chan, director of Equipson's Hong Kong distributor All Solution.
He says: "Freelancer Production Company contacted us as a result of a promotion we were running to showcase Work Pro products to the theatre market. We recommended the SL210A system as we felt it best met their requirements. Freelancer Production Company were really impressed with the system, in particular its sound quality, innovative features and price point. They tested the system in our demo facilities and immediately placed an order as they felt the system complemented their existing and extensive audio equipment hire stock."
Sound designer Wan San Hong, who is the director of Freelancer Production Company, adds: "The SL210A Line Array is the right size and has the right amount of headroom to service the venues that we most often work with. It is a very great system and fits everything the show requires."
The system specified for Freelancer Production Company includes four SL218A subwoofers and 22 SL210A enclosures – 18 for Front of House and four for front-fill. These loudspeakers all feature built-in DSP and are remotely controlled by ethernet using Work Pro's dedicated management software.
Following its delivery to Hong Kong, sound engineers from Freelancer Production Company were given hands on training with the system and its software.
