Allen & Heath mixer for Poland’s new Olympic training centre
Allen & Heath’s Qu-Pac digital rack mixer has been installed in the new COS sports complex, constructed as a training centre for Poland’s Olympic athletes. Situated in Zakopane, the centre comprises a 46m x 28m hall, 15m climbing wall, running track, gym, judo training room, wrestling training room and fitness hall. The venue was recently opened by the Minister of Sport & Tourism, and leading Polish athletes, cross-country skier Justyna Kowalczyk and ski jumper Kamil Stoch.
Zakopane-based installer, Future Tech, installed the sound reinforcement system, which manages sources such as, microphones for announcements and coaches’ commentaries, and music playlists.
“Qu-Pac is at the heart of the sound system. The great thing about this compact mixer is it provides independent control of seven zones, and EQ and dynamics on both inputs and outputs. Preset buttons and three access levels (Basic/User/Admin), make the system available not only for sound professionals but also non-technical users. Connecting Qu-Pac to the network also allows remote control of individual zones using a tablet or smartphone,” explains Marcin Słodyczka, owner of Future Tech.
