Optocore provides infrastructure for SEA Games
Optocore’s solutions were deployed at the National Stadium in Singapore for the SEA Games. The ring system at the venue was designed by The Show Company who made a recent invenstment with local distributors Total Solution Marketing.
The Show Company was contracted by Sports SG, and it added 8 x X6R-FX-8AE/8LO Optocore converters along with 3 x X6R-FX-16MI, 2 x X6R-TP-16MI, 5 x X6R-TP-16LO interfaces, with a central DD8RP repeater to its existing stock. This enabled them to create a fibre backbone at the newly constructed 55,000-seat Singapore Sports Hub.
Joseph Gan from The Show Company said: “Optocore is a very stable and easily expandable system — ideal for large scale deployment such as this. The scale and the importance of the audio support for the Games made it mandatory to have a large dual redundant ring system as nothing is allowed to fail.”
All 18 devices were connected in the loop, including 11 X6R-FX devices, set in 11 locations in the stadium. The entire audio system set-up is based on Optocore devices as the main frame, and all audio signals in the stadium (amplifiers, amplifier remote, wireless mics, band mics etc) were routed through the Optocore network.
