GLD Installed in Beijing’s Oriental Media Centre Theatre

Allen & Heath’s GLD digital system has been installed in the theatre of the new Oriental Media Centre building in Beijing, China.

Located in the heart of the CBD business district, the new skyscraper provides office space for the city’s media companies, and the building’s M Theatre is designed to host residents’ conferences, events, live performances and banquets. The theatre’s seats can be fully retracted and the stage is expandable, enabling various configurations to be used for different events.

Sanecore supplied and installed a comprehensive audio system to meet the varied application needs of the venue.

At the heart of the sound system is a GLD-80 mixer with accompanying AR2412 positioned on stage, plus a Symetrix SymNet Solus 8 is employed as the audio processor.

“GLD not only features an intuitive control interface but also powerful processing. The ability to connect a stage rack via Cat5 brings enormous convenience for users. Moreover, I am so impressed by the sound. I have to say, never in my career have I ever heard a sound like this. It is just amazing,” said Mr. Du, Sound Engineer at M Theatre. “M Theatre’s owners are very satisfied with the outstanding sound of the system and speak highly of its reliability.”
