Stadium sector: Arena sound

Hurrairah bin Sohail discovers how integrators, manufacturers and consultants work together to ensure that stadiums Asia Pacific get the best sound possible.

The Singapore Sports Hub, inaugurated last year, makes a claim to being the best and most modern sporting venue in Asia Pacific. However, it may not be able to hold on to that title for much longer as Asia Pacific gears itself to welcome a number of new stadiums.

New facilities are expected to be established in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea, just to name a few, for a host of regional and international sporting events. In fact a closer look at the sporting calendar gives a good idea of which countries in Asia Pacific will be working on stadiums.

The 2017 Southeast Asian games, hosted by Singapore this year, will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This will be followed by the 2018 Asian games held in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia. In addition, the 2018 Winter Olympics will be hosted by Pyeongchang, South Korea while the 2020 Olympics will be coming to Tokyo, Japan.

Not to mention China, which loudspeaker manufacturers also identify as an extremely well performing market for AV systems designed for stadiums.
