Old Lyme, CT, July 22, 2014: Last week, soccer’s world champions landed at Berlin’s Tegel airport and given a rapturous welcome by attending fans and journalists. As the players left the plane and emerged onto the visitors’ terrace, world championship sound was provided by eight LSP 500 PRO loudspeakers from Sennheiser.
At precisely 10:08, the specially chartered Lufthansa Boeing 747 from Rio de Janeiro carrying the 23 German world champions landed in Berlin. The triumphant soccer team was then given a rapturous reception by Tegel Airport staff, airline employees, journalists and hundreds of jubilant onlookers.
Eight Sennheiser LSP 500 PRO supplied by Bärlin Team operating on behalf of Berlin Airports ensured that the welcome addresses for players were clearly heard by all those present. Four LSP 500 PRO were positioned on the apron area and four more were set up on the visitors’ terrace, located about 450 feet away. Audio signals were transmitted wirelessly via an integrated Sennheiser SR 300 IEM G3 transmitter to EM 300 G3 receivers housed in the LSP 500 PRO.
Dan Wittke, Managing Partner of Bärlin Team Eventdesign GmbH, summed it up: “Thanks to Sennheiser audio technology, the event was a huge success for all those involved.”
