RCF HDL20-A broadcasts WBO title fight in New Delhi

New Delhi based Audio Factory used RCF’s composite D-Line components recently to help broadcast a WBO title fight at the city’s Thyagaraj Stadium.
Audio Factory equipped the stadium with a technical infrastructure, including sound, lighting, trussing and LED screen, as Indian boxing star Vijender Singh took less than 10 minutes to defend his Asia-Pacific Super Middleweight against former Tanzanian world champion, Francis Cheka.
Since the event was broadcast by Star Sports channel Audio Factory needed first class equipment to keep not only the 5,000 live audience in the stadium entertained but also the millions receiving the broadcast mix at home.
To achieve this, they fielded a total of 32 HDL20-A enclosures. This included 16 elements, flown in 4 x 4 clusters (one in each corner), with a total of 12 SUB 8006-AS subwoofers stacked on stage. A further 16 HDL20-A provided the delays.
The stadium sound was designed by Audio Factory director (and sound engineer), Vivek Vij Director of Audio Factory. The company recognised that the HDL20-A would be the perfect solution when a fast set-up is required. Powered by a 1400W (peak) 2-way digital amplifier, with integral processing and preset configuration, the HDL20-A features purpose-designed RCF transducers, two powerful 10” bass drivers and large format 3” voice coil compression driver.
“In view of its quality and the fact that it is powered and process controlled, the HDL20-A easily managed to provide good intelligibility and even coverage right across the stadium” confirmed Vivek.
