(Edison, New Jersey) RCF has recently been awarded the contract to provide sound reinforcement for the upgrade and expansion of the Las Vegas Fremont Street Viva Vision LED display canopy that covers the four city block stretch in uptown Las Vegas. A total of 50 clusters &S211; 350 total speakers &S211; will be used in the installation. Each cluster is comprised of six HDL20-A dual 10&S221; two-way active line array modules with one SUB8005-AS active 21&S221; subwoofer that are custom mounted on a steel frame and flown below the canopy. The RCF Engineering team in Reggio-Emilia, Italy worked with the Fremont Street Experience crew to design the custom configuration, using an existing frame from a previous system, incorporating the six HDL20-A in an arc mounted between two flybars, with the SUB8005-AS subwoofer mounted on top of the frame. In the process of the upgrade of the Fremont Street Experience, the venue was already familiar with the sound of the HDL20-A as they were already being utilized on the live performance stages. Already pleased with the sound, it was suggested using the speakers for the overhead reinforcement for the Viva Vision display. After a shootout with a number of manufacturers, the HDL20-A was chosen. Consulting with RCF, the engineering team designed the custom cluster with specific splay angles of the cabinets to effectively cover the four block length of the Viva Vision canopy. In addition, all three live performance stages on Fremont Street are using RCF. The main entertainment stage is configured with 18 TTL55-A dual 12&S221; three-way active line array modules along with 8 TTS56-A dual 21&S221; active subwoofers and eight TT25-CXA monitors for the musicians. The second stage has 16 HDL20-A modules, eight SUB8006-AS dual 18&S221; subwoofers and five TT25-CXA monitors. The third stage features eight HDL20-A modules with four HDL18-AS 18&S221; active subwoofers flown plus three TTS36-A active dual 18&S221; subwoofers on the ground. RCF will also have some of these products on display at Infocomm, June 8-10 in Las Vegas. RCF will have a booth on the main floor (#C10539) plus a live demonstration room (#N108)
