Wireless technology from beyerdynamic has been installed at The Electricty Museum (“Museu da Electricidade”) in the Belém district of Lisbon, Portugal as part of extensive renovations. Reminiscent of a cathedral, the historic, landmarked building is located on the grounds of the former Central Tejo power plant, which supplied electricity to light the Portuguese capital for centuries. The museum is now operated by a foundation owned by the “EDP - Energias de Portugal” energy corporation. Based on positive past experiences with beyerdynamic, EDP chose the new digital TG 1000 system; four TG 1000 2-channel receivers are installed in a mobile rack, while two passive WA-ATD wideband directional antennas enable coverage of the entire area. The system also includes eight TG 1000 beltpack transmitters that are operated using the museum’s previously purchased MCE 10.18 condenser lavaliere microphones, as well as four TG 1000 handheld transmitters, equipped with TG V96w true condenser capsules. All equipment was supplied by beyerdynamic’s Portuguese partner Garrett Audiovisuais, who also managed the installation of all the components. Duarte Aires, responsible for operating the museum’s event technology, commented: “We were already familiar with the quality of beyerdynamic products: For many years, we successfully used a beyerdynamic analogue wireless system – the new TG 1000 has actually managed to take the many advantages we were already enjoying to an even higher level! Since its installation in the Electricity Museum, the new beyerdynamic wireless system has delivered an ideal performance for a very broad spectrum of events.” www.beyerdynamic.com
