Stadiums today have much broader requirements than they used to in the past; catering for all types of shows, sports and entertainment whilst also holding larger audiences than ever before. For environments with such vast spaces and the attraction of tens of thousands of people to any one event, means a greater need for a fully reliable and efficient Public Address and Voice Alarm (PAVA) system.

The VIPEDIA range, ASL’s latest generation of digital, networked audio distribution equipment, provides pro audio levels of sound reinforcement whilst more than exceeding quality thresholds for voice alarm. This means the VIPEDIA routing structure alone can handle both PA and VA requirements of stadia, integrating both the messaging and daily programme content within a single distribution backbone. The VIPEDIA range of products is also fully compatible with any third party performance system brought in for individual concerts and events, through using a variety of connection protocols.

All VIPEDIA-12 routers have a +20dB audio output, ensuring supreme sound quality that the modern stadium requires, including third party, active line array dispersion for large areas – all directly from the unit itself. Further, the VIPEDIA-12 has the capability of programming monitoring signal, delays and 10-band parametric EQ into the signal path – making the VIPEDIA-12 a staple component of any pro audio solution for stadia.

For control of the site, the VIPA-WS offers a PC-based touchscreen graphical user interface as the main control panel, which can control and manage other stadium communication systems, including help points, steward’s phones and CCTV.
