Winning Numbers: Yamaha and Nexo Reinforce The 2017 X World Games
Founded in 1985, the 10 day X World Games features a wide range of sports and disciplines which are not represented in the Olympics. Taking place in Wroclaw, Poland, in late July, the venues were arranged in three ‘clusters’ across the city, with four more nearby.
With so many venues and sports to cover, plus the opening and closing ceremonies, the Games provided a huge logistical challenge for Wroclaw-based rental company Pogo Art.
Supported by Yamaha Commercial Audio’s Poland office and Nexo’s Polish distributor Lauda-Audio, all events featured Yamaha mixing consoles and Nexo loudspeakers. The inventory included 25 Yamaha CL, QL and MG series mixers, 18 Rio3224-D i/o units, 50 NXAMP controller/amplifiers and a total of 412 Nexo STM, Geo S8, Geo D, PS series and Yamaha DXR and IF series loudspeakers across 26 different locations.
In total there were over 120 wireless and 115 wired microphone channels, with the majority of locations using Dante audio networking.
“It was a huge project. At some venues the events were running from early morning until late evening,” says Pogo Art’s Sławek Pogorzała. “For us, the most important factor was the stability of the systems. When so many things are happening at the same time, and with such a huge audience, you need to be able to completely rely on your equipment. Once again, Yamaha and NEXO loudspeakers proved the perfect match for the events and for each other.”
Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles represent a new level of refinement. They offer an evolved experience in accessible mixing, plus sonic purity with sound shaping capabilities that will give the most imaginative engineer unprecedented creative freedom. The CL series embodies the leading standards in live sound in their most advanced, most expressive form.
QL series consoles offer all-in-one mixing, processing, and routing capability for small to medium scale live sound, corporate speech events, installations, and much more.
R Series (AD/DA)
Rio Series I/O racks employ Dante network audio protocol for exceptional flexibility and freedom in setup and placement, while delivering natural, musical sound that brings out the full sonic potential of mixing consoles and other system components.
DXR Series loudspeakers offer superb high-definition sound and class-leading sound pressure levels—yet in a more compact and extremely functional design that provides a level of versatility unmatched by any speaker in its class today.
Favorites with discerning contractors and engineers, these speakers feature Uni-Phase design and matching sound - even between different models - for easy system setup and tuning.
From a simple ground stack to a massive stadium system, STM (Scale Through Modularity) delivers a new level of versatility enabling contractors to design a wide range of systems from just four core modules.
NEXO GEO S8 Versatile Line-Array System
The GEO S Series are compact, high-output array modules designed for use in vertical and horizontal tangent arrays. The Hyperboloid Reflective Wavesource allows multiple GEO S8 loudspeakers to radiate tangent wavefronts with coherent output. The 5° wavesource is optimized for the construction of curved vertical arrays that deliver equal power to equal coverage areas for consistent SPL from front to rear of the audience area.
NEXO GEO D Line-Array System
NEXO's GEO D10, is an example of legendary NEXO sonic innovation in a cost-effective, one-box vertical array system.
PS R2 Series systems can be used as floor monitors, stand-mounted main PA speakers, flown vertically or horizontally in installations or for use as side/rear fills with Alpha and GEO systems.
