K-array to Provide Broadcast Solutions Globally

2023 series of Big Noon Kick-Off events experience high-quality sound with K-array systems

On a mission to strengthen its position as a provider of broadcast solutions, K-array, one of the leading manufacturers of innovative audio technology, is promoting its latest innovations in broadcast audio. Following a series of high-profile broadcast projects, the brand is promoting its range of versatile and discreet audio products, designed to meet the demands of live television and radio.

"It is important to employ high-end audio solutions that perform at a high level for live broadcast environments," explains Andrea Torelli, Global Marketing & Communications Director at K-array. "With invisible line arrays that can be used to create a slim PA system, monitors cleverly hidden in plain sight at centre stage or flexible, metres-long line array systems that can stretch across the length of the stage, K-array has a range of clever solutions suited to these environments."

Among K-array's broadcast offerings, the Pinnacle Series stands out for its ease of use and functionality. Comprising two Kobra line array columns and one Thunder subwoofer per unit, this portable stereo system ensures clear and balanced audio distribution for live studio events. During the live broadcast of the Hungarian qualifying round of the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, the in-studio PA system was based around two Pinnacle active systems, supported by a 2-metre-long Anakonda, flexible loudspeaker that provides invisible sound, a crucial requirement for environments with live studio audiences.

Within the French broadcast market, K-array products have been involved in a variety of high-profile projects for France TV that highlight the ability of Anakonda and Pinnacle to provide clear audio feedback for audiences in TV studio environments. Renowned talent shows, political talk shows and cultural programs use K-array products, including those on national and international French channels.

In the USA, K-array's broadcast solutions recently helped elevate the visual and audio experience of FOX Sports' Big Noon Kick-Off events, one of the most watched sporting events on any US television network. In 2022, local solutions provider CP Communications collaborated with K-array USA to provide essential audio reinforcement including two KGEAR GH12 systems, one at the stage and another at the entranceway. As the season progressed and larger, louder crowds gathered, CP Communications recognised the need for more powerful audio solutions. They expanded their K-array inventory, incorporating Kayman, Anakonda, Thunder and Kobra products to accommodate the expanded audience.

Six Anakonda-KAN200+ flexible line array loudspeakers were installed around the demo field's base, paired with a Kommander-KA24 amplifier. Custom aluminium upright towers and bases were designed to house K-array's sleek Kayman stainless steel line array loudspeakers, wrapped in specially designed loudspeaker-mesh fabric that allowed for branding with team logos and the Big Noon Kick-Off insignia. This ensured high-quality sound and enhanced the appearance of the broadcast, and the 2023 series of Big Noon Kick-Off events will benefit from a similar K-array system.

Across the live broadcast industry, K-array provides solutions that not only promise crystal-clear audio but also consider the importance of minimising visual impact. "We want to promote the fact that our products provide incredible benefits to broadcast environments as well as in the more established installation and residential markets," confirms Torelli. "The versatility and ability for our loudspeakers to blend into the background whilst providing high-quality audio is shown in the wide range of use cases, and we look forward to powering even more exciting broadcast events in the future."
