Three CRESCENDO and large NEXUS network in spectacular architecture

Technology from STAGETEC at the Meixihu International Culture and Art Center China

Changsha, China, December 2018: In China, event buildings are often built with spectacular architecture. This includes the Meixihu International Culture and Art Center at Meixi Lake in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province. The audio technology was supplied by STAGETEC, the Berlin-based manufacturer of professional mixing consoles and routers.

Three CRESCENDO platinum with 32 faders each, three NEXUS STAR routers, and 12 NEXUS Base Devices provide the perfect sound at the Meixihu International Culture and Art Center. Two CRESCENDO were installed in the Grand Theater, one as FOH, the second for monitoring. The consoles are integrated into a NEXUS network with two routers and eight Base Devices. For maximum console performance, the STAR routers are each equipped with three powerful RMDQ DSP units. With 1800 seats, the Grand Theater is the largest in the city and the centerpiece of the center.

The third CRESCENDO platinum was installed in a multifunctional hall also at FOH. The hall offers 500 seats for flexible events, e.g. concerts, banquets, exhibitions, fashion shows, and private events. The NEXUS system here consists of a router and four Base Devices. To meet all the requirements of the various uses, the router was reinforced with two RMDQ DSP units.

The Meixihu International Culture and Art Center covers an area of 100,000 square meters. In addition to the theater and event building, it also houses a contemporary art museum as well as food and retail outlets. The complex was still designed by world-renowned British architect Zaha Hadid, who died two years ago. Typical of her extraordinary architecture are the extreme, sinusoidal curves, reminiscent of petals.
