The technical staff at the Oslo Opera House has garnered indispensable experience with wireless DMX technologies as they have tried every manufacturer and system available since the facility opened in 2008. When it came to the toughest challenge in the house, the area underneath the main stage, they found that only LumenRadio's CRMX technology could rise to the task.
The monumental Oslo Opera House is home to the The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet and a frequent venue for a variety of shows, concerts, and official functions. The huge 38,500 m2 (414,000 sq ft) building contains 1,100 rooms and features 3 world-class stages. The imposing main stage rivals the world's largest opera houses and incorporates under-stage machinery with load-bearing steel structures of gigantic proportions.
This environment is particularly challenging for radio systems and was until LumenRadio's CRMX technology arrived on the scene a white spot on the Opera House's signal distribution map. A selection of LumenRadio products has provided reliable DMX/RDM distribution to critical locations throughout this difficult area; supporting productions ranging from Puccini's La Bohéme to Wagner's Tristan & Isolde.
Audun Bull-Hanssen at the Oslo Opera House has been working with LumenRadio's CRMX technology for a considerable time now and is elated with its industry leading performance and reliability. "I can honestly say that we continuously have tried and tested every brand and generation of wireless DMX distribution system offered on the market. The performance of LumenRadio's CRMX system has been outstanding and in a class by itself. It was the only system capable of reaching the very difficult area under our main stage and is now our go-to solution for critical applications and hard to reach locations as it provides transmission range and reliability unrivaled by any other system", says Audun.
