Whitinsville, MA, USA â€“ April 30, 2009 â€“ The inaugural Rayli International Jewelry and Culture Festival was recently held on the Rayli Riverbank Square in Yunnan Province, China. Rayli Riverbank Square is one of the most beloved and unique performance venues in the region, designed in such a way that approximately 12,000 attendees, some directly across the river in neighboring Myanmar, can enjoy the spaceâ€™s performances. Chinese firm Hunan Tian Yin Art Performance Company selected EAW products to serve as the eventâ€™s loudspeakers and subwoofers.
EAW products selected include the KF750 High Output Array Loudspeaker and the BH760 Bent Horn Subwoofer. Twenty-four KF750â€™s were flown, with twelve on each side of the stage in four layers of three speakers, for long throw and mid-distance throw. Each side of the stage also had six BH760â€™s (12 total) with two additional KF750â€™s stacked on each side.
The festival took place from December 2nd through December 5th, 2008, featuring an elaborate opening ceremony headed by the areaâ€™s International Jewelry Committee and the â€œHappy China Travelâ€? cast. The ceremony focused on the Yunnan peopleâ€™s minority culture and the strong ties of friendship the area shares with Myanmar.
Davwinder Sheena, EAW Director of International Sales, Asia/Pacific Rim, stated, â€œEAW provided the perfect sound for this event. All involved were quite pleased. It demonstrated to everyoneâ€™s ears what real sound is.â€?
About the KF750 High Output Array Loudspeaker
The KF750 is designed to create arrays with optimized coverage in both the horizontal and vertical planes to cover audience areas ranging from 200 to 80,000 people. KF750 arrays are smaller, lighter, more efficient and therefore more powerful than those built with other systems. These smaller, lighter arrays are easier to fly, require less truck space and permit more open sight lines to cover any given venue.
