Outdoor wireless audio system covers 5 acres of downtown Las Vegas

TeleData Technologies has designed wirelessly networked loudspeakers and amplifiers that now covers a five-acre zone in Las Vegas, the company said.

Suspended above the pavement on 75 customized concrete light poles, the new audio system blankets the street and sidewalks with high fidelity sound streamed live from the city´s command center.

Technomad LLC of South Deerfield, Massachusetts supplied the audio equipment. Technomad specializes in military audio and advanced commercial sound systems, with clients including the US Government, Disney and Royal Caribbean. The system uses Technomad´s PowerChiton waterproof amplifiers and military-grade Vernal 15 loudspeakers. A Technomad Schedulon audio player at the command center plays hours of audio automatically, but allows a staffer to interrupt music with emergency messages.

Teledata deployed a wi-fi network over the five-acre area, allowing the use of standards–based networking and simplifying future expansion.
