Hong Kong City Hall’s Concert Hall hosted two specially curated big screen performances by the London Philharmonic Orchestra back in August 2022, and our Platinum AV Alliance partner d&b audiotechnik’s d&b Soundscape system, comprised of an array of d&b loudspeakers and a DS100 Signal Engine, was used for the audience to hear the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) in a realistic, in-the-room manner. Due to COVID restrictions, the LPO were not able to travel to Hong Kong, therefore the concert was billed as a ‘hybrid event’.
This format allowed to transpose both the viewing and listening experience from London to Hong Kong to fully immerse the audience, with the d&b Soundscape system was rigged throughout the space to perfectly map each musician and place them in a 360° audio environment for the audience, as if they were hearing the orchestra live.
