opticalCON connectors ensure integrity of MediaPro International’s 15 km fibre-optic Dante network at Diriyah E-Prix

Saudi Arabia – Connectivity for a massive Dante audio network, extending over some 15 kilometres of fibre-optic cable, during the 2021 Diriyah E-Prix in Saudi Arabia, relied on the robust, field tested dependability of Neutrik opticalCON DUO connectors.

The site-wide audio, video, lighting and rigging infrastructure supplied and operated by Dubai headquartered MediaPro included their entire Middle East based stock of L-Acoustics systems comprising K1, K2, Karas, 112Ps, 5XTs, X8s, X15, KS28, SB18s and 20 LA RACK II, 13 Yamaha QL and CL consoles, with D2 racks, 15 of the company’s own network racks – connecting all of the various audio zones to the network – and a complete redundant Dante network.

Commenting on the choice of opticalCON DUO connectors, MediaPro International chief operating officer Shaam Pudaruth says: “Connectivity solutions of the quality and ruggedness of Neutrik’s opticalCON range are an essential element in providing the technological advantages of AoIP fibre optic networking solutions.”

In addition to the massive audio network, MediaPro also catered the radio mic requirements with Shure Axient systems, video screen and signal requirements of the site with 78 CD screens, radio and Clearcom wireless communications, SFX, trussing and rigging and lighting solutions for general grandstand, pedestrian bridges, entrance gates, and branding areas around the track.
