modificaThe MiCo Milan Convention Centre hosts over 500 events each year
Italy - An a installation of Shure’s ULX-D Digital Wireless and Shure’s QLX-D wireless systems has been deployed throughout an 18,000 seat, 65 room conference and exhibition venue that occupies over 54,000sq.m of exhibition space in Italy.
The MiCo Milan Convention Centre hosts over 500 events each year and is part of the Fiera Milano Group, one of the largest trade fair and exhibition organisers in the world and part of Fiera Milano Congressi, an international conference centre operator and venue management company.
The choice of wireless system was crucial to guarantee crystal clear audio and perfect intelligibility for the audience, especially with so many devices in daily operation throughout the venue space, as well as the potential for DVB-T interference. It was a high priority to have a system that ensures the reliability of at least 100 channels in action within less than 48 MHz usable space, with high transmission power to ensure long distance coverage inside the main theatres. Enabled Dante devices were also requested in order to match the existing audio network of the main rooms.
Shure’s ULX-D Digital Wireless microphone was identified by MiCo’s AV technical department as the answer - both in terms of reliability and ease of use for large theatres - along with Shure’s QLX-D wireless systems for small and medium-sized rooms.
For the RF planning set-up and for providing frequencies to guests and TV when needed, the team identified the Shure Wireless Workbench as the most powerful and flexible software.
“The challenge of this project was the complex nature and sheer size of the project: more than 30 meeting rooms,” said Francesco Alafaci of the MiCo A/V technical department.
“I asked the lead AV Microphones Technician to run a test in the MiCo space to try the sound quality and stress the RF reliability. I was impressed by the Shure wireless systems; both the QLX-D and ULX-D systems didn’t have any transmission issues at all, even in the crowded RF environment of our congress hall.”
Davide Del Piano, Prase’s sales area manager, who assisted with the installation of the system added: “Our goal was to upgrade the wireless microphone system with 36 Shure ULX-D Channels and 64 QLX-D Channels, which we identified as the perfect system solution.
“Both systems have shown exceptional reliability in various on-site tests, which is an essential feature for a saturated RF environment like a crowded conference centre.”
