ATC Loudspeaker Technology announced that it was selected to provide the high-quality surround sound monitoring at the main broadcasting center in Seoul, South Korea, for this summer's World Cup Finals.

The center, operated by HBS, will provide the surround sound monitoring of all outgoing TV and radio audio feeds from the 20 stadiums in Korea and Japan, to an estimated worldwide audience of over 1.5 billion.

For all matches, HBS will be using ATC's "100 Pro" 250-watt, three-way Monoblock active loudspeakers in a 5.1-channel configuration, the designated center speaker utilizing a specially aligned array. Two C6 active sub speakers, each comprising a 15-inch driver with an ATC amplifier of up to 1,000 watts, share the LFE channel. In addition, a pair of ATC Pro 20 active loudspeakers will be used as local near-field monitors at the sound desk position for the stereo-only feeds.

Audio specialist Video Sound Services Limited founders Ian Rosam and Robert Edwards commented: "For such an important event, it was essential for us to have a reference we could trust. The speakers will give us a smooth, spatially accurate reference, making our job of checking the audio feeds from these grounds far easier than with lesser, more colored speakers. As a result, they are much less fatiguing to listen to over a long period, a significant factor to consider when 60 games will come through the center in one month."

A spokesman from ATC said, "We are delighted to have our speakers selected to play at this prestigious sporting event. The ATC Subs will be playing for a full 90 minutes during every match."
