Cadac Electronics has installed a 52-input J-Type Live Production Console for in the Taipei Metropolitan Hall (formerly known as the Taipei Municipal Social Education Hall), which is part of the hall's six-month-long refurbishment.
Cadac's local Hong Kong distributor, Hiroshi Systems, commissioned the J-Type. Director Joseph C Lee said, "This is a very prestigious contract for Cadac, and we are delighted to be able to introduce the first-ever Cadac in Taiwan into Taipei's principal performing arts venue. The city is rightly proud of its newly refurbished venue, with the Taipei Municipal Social Education Hall representing the cultural jewel in the city's crown. The new sound system is currently being commissioned, ready for the first performances later this year. Hiroshi has been working closely with the hall's sound team to get everything ready, despite the difficult regional circumstances at present with the SARS epidemic, and we look forward to a successful opening in the near future."
The hall's renovation has included a major reworking of the main 1,000-seat auditorium layout, including the laying of a new hardwood floor that has dramatically improved the acoustics. The hall now has a reverb time of 1.5 seconds. The backstage area has also been completely modernized.
