Beijing's National Grand Theatre Installs Pyramix DXD System
Chinese Government Chooses High-Resolution Merging DAW For National Institution
Switzerland, June 2010: Merging Technologies, Swiss manufacturer of the Pyramix digital audio workstation, is proud to announce the commission and installation of a high-resolution, DXD-capable Pyramix system at Beijing's National Centre for the Performing Arts, also known as the National Grand Theatre.
Situated at the heart of Beijing's old town and locally known as 'the egg' due to its striking ellipsoid titanium and glass shell, the National Grand Theatre comprises three performance spaces: the Opera hall, the Theatre hall, and the Music hall. The Theatre's management installed one Pyramix system back in 2006 to allow the audio from performances to be recorded and archived. The new high-resolution Pyramix workstation has been installed with an SSL console in a control room beneath the Music hall, and can record at sample rates of up to 384kHz if required.
Dominique Brulhart, who oversaw the installation for Merging Technologies, comments: "The Chinese government is committed to the highest standards of quality in their national arts institutions, and the additional purchase of a further high-resolution Pyramix DAW for the National Grand Theatre is a testament to this policy."
