Martin Audio builds the Experimental Theater of the Dance Academy of Yunnan University of the Arts

Yunnan University of the Arts, established in 1959, started a dance department in 1961 and developed into a dance academy in 2003. Soon after it obtained a master’s degree authorization in dance in 2006. There are currently three undergraduate majors (orientations) in dance performance, choreography, and choreography (dance education, folk dance inheritance), and two postgraduate training categories of academic and professional.

The first-level discipline “Music and Dance” was rated as B-grade in the fourth round of national discipline evaluation in 2016. In the same year, it was approved as a “first-class discipline (plateau category A) in Yunnan Province, and it will be the best discipline in China in 2021. Ranked 9th in the ranking. Since 2019, dance performance, choreography, and choreography have been approved as national and provincial first-class undergraduate major construction sites. Among them, the dance performance major ranks third in the country in the 2021 Soft Science Professional Ranking. Existing 2 national-level first-class courses, 1 Ministry of Education course ideological and political demonstration course, 1 national-level ideological and political teaching team, 6 national-level ideological and political teaching teachers, and 2 provincial-level first-class courses.

The college has a team of teachers with high teaching level, strong creative ability and fruitful achievements. There are 96 full-time and part-time teachers, including 11 permanent experts. Among them, senior professional titles accounted for 61%, and doctoral and master’s degrees accounted for 85%. Among the teachers are the national “virtue and art” literary and art workers, experts who enjoy special allowances from the State Council, experts who enjoy special allowances from the Yunnan Provincial Government, members of the Yunnan Provincial Political Consultative Conference, experts from the Professional Subcommittee of the National Graduate Education Steering Committee, and national and provincial teaching teachers. wait. There are more than a thousand students in the school.

The world-renowned audio brand, Martin Audio, once again showed its strength in the field of domestic stage sound effects. Recently, the Experimental Theater of Dance Academy of Yunnan University of the Arts completed the installation of the Martin Audio TORUS for constant curvature sound reinforcement system. The colorful performances dazzled many audiences.

The TORUS series is the latest masterpiece of Martin Audio with its’ precise sound field and consistent voice reproduction effect. TORUS is highly praised and sought after in the field of stage sound effects such as auditoriums, theaters, and multi-purpose halls. This time, the upgrading and reconstruction project of the Experimental Theater of the Dance Academy of Yunnan University of the Arts has carried out rigorous measurement and evaluation of the environment of the stage through professional technicians to identify the quality, high-performance, adaptable and cost-effective sound reinforcement system solutions.

The TORUS series includes T820, T1215 and T1230, which are equipped with Martin Audio’s powerful SXC118 cardioid technology subwoofer. The system is driven by an iKON amplifier and supports VU-NET control software and Dante integration. With this, it can be modeled in 3D with optimized filters using DISPLAY 3 software to provide sonic consistency and precise coverage.

The T1215 and T1230 feature two passive fixed-angle array enclosures (15° or 30°) for vertical diffusion installation flexibility, and a manually adjustable dynamic horizontal horn (variable between 60°, 90° or 75°) Symmetrical) can flexibly control the horizontal diffusion. The phase plug design of the intermediate frequency drive unit adopted strengthens the output and projection of the intermediate frequency.

The fixed horizontal directivity of traditional line arrays often causes a large part of the sound field to collide with walls and boundaries and reflect into the audience area, which increases reverberation and affects sound quality and intelligibility. The TORUS Dynamic Horizontal Horn can precisely focus the sound field on the auditorium, and can reduce spillage of reflective surfaces. In a rectangular space, the upper unit of the array needs to have a narrow dispersion, gradually increasing the width with each descending module.

This degree of control is very important in spaces with complex geometries. A more precise control of the audience’s soundstage also minimizes off-axis sound pressure levels, reducing sound leakage and noise pollution, which is especially important for live event venues.

Another advantage is that, unlike traditional line source systems, which are limited to symmetrical directivity and are almost always hung parallel to the stage, there is no apparent stereo image for part of the audience, and variable The asymmetrical horizontal coverage option provides a better sound image for a larger percentage of the audience area.

In the installation, design and commissioning phase, Martin Audio’s professional team took advantage of its own technology and experience to assist customers in overcoming many technical problems, and brought strong support for the upgrade and transformation of the experimental theater. The successful implementation of the TORUS series sound reinforcement system has contributed to the development of Martin Audio in the domestic stage audio market.

In short, the successful case of Martin Audio TORUS series sound reinforcement system proves its irreplaceable and huge advantages in the field of stage audio. Looking at the audio market, Martin Audio is one of the leading brands in the international audio industry. Its excellent quality and excellent service have been recognized and sought after by more and more customers.
