SINGAPORE – April 2024 – The University Cultural Centre (UCC), situated at the Kent Ridge campus of the National University of Singapore (NUS), serves as a prominent performance venue, highlighted by the Ho Bee Auditorium, which accommodates up to 1,700 attendees. The horseshoe-shaped seating area features two tiers of balconies alongside stall seating.

It accommodates a wide range of event activities and productions, such as orchestral performances, musicals, faculty events, commencement ceremonies, and external hires.

Concept Systems Technologies, an L-Acoustics Certified Provider Distributor, was appointed by the NUS University Infrastructure Cluster to upgrade the audio system of UCC.

L-Acoustics Application Engineer APAC Chung Wah Khiew assisted Concept Systems by designing an L-ISA configuration using L-Acoustics Soundvision 3D modelling software. Their 5.1 design features five hangs of five A15i Focus and one A15i Wide each, with eight KS21i centre-hung subwoofers for low-end definition. Seven X8 coaxial speakers deliver front-fill, while nine 5XT coaxials and two Syva colinear line source speakers deliver sound as deck-fill. Fourteen 5XT provide fill to the Grand Circle and Circle seating areas. The system is powered by 10 LA4X, four LA2Xi, and one LA7.16i amplified controllers. Driven by L-ISA Processor II, a P1 processor and an LS10 switch provide the highest quality Milan-AVB signal distribution.

L-Acoustics APAC Application Engineers trained the NUS UCC technical team on the L-ISA technology and provided live mixing training courses. These training sessions armed the team with the vital skills and knowledge to adopt and harness the power of L-ISA.

Installation of the L-ISA system in the Ho Bee Auditorium at NUS UCC was completed in January 2024, making it the first venue in Singapore equipped with this cutting-edge sound technology which provides an immersive audio experience for the audience.
