K-array‘s K-academy took its teachings on the road for a week of seminars throughout China in Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai that covered large venue sound system design hosted by K-array China.
At each stop, K-array China was able to give attendees a complete K-experience with product presentations and demos of its installed sound, portable systems and Concert Series lines.
K-array Global president and co-founder Alex Tatini and live sound product specialist Klaus Hausherr were present to provide a detailed introduction to the Italian manufacturer’s product design concept for large venues. In particular, the K-academy trainers explained the advantages of electronic beam steering, pure array technology and slim array technology featured in their loudspeakers from a technical perspective and included real time demonstrations using EaseFocus software based on FIRmaker for speaker tuning.
Furthermore, other relevant industry experts were invited to provide an encompassing approach to sound design, including Zhu Heng, a well-known engineer in the field of architectural acoustics, who presented on the relationship between the acoustic environment and the electroacoustic system. The relevant national standards and design concepts were explained and greatly welcomed by the audience, in addition to Beyerdynamic wireless system engineer Chen Yugong’s presentation which explained the necessity of frequency planning, provided relevant data to explain the current wireless frequency environment, and introduced the antenna setup technical points in the system construction.
In Hangzhou, a K-array Concert Series setup was on display outdoors to allow the audience experience the uniform coverage and high performance sound. And at VAS Livehouse, the site of the K-academy in Shanghai, top talent Italian singer Alessia gave a special performance on a system of Mugello-KH2 loudspeakers.
“The tour was a great success as we can really sense the passion and interest in K-array from one of the biggest markets in pro audio industry,” says Tatini. “We would like to thank all the participants and related associations for their enormous support. We also thank Beijing audio company Maxteam and Shanghai VAS Livehouse for providing first-class venues.”
