The XXI edition of Football FIFA World Cup takes place in Russia in 2018, and the main 5 stadiums, all around the country, have chosen RAM Audio amps to bring the audio power.
Official Russian distributor of RAM Audio, company Russian Sound Systems, leads by Vladimir Samuskevich, has supplied and installed the complete sound systems in the stadiums.

RAM Audio V12004 and V12044 models, in their fully equipped version, including Ethernet, DSP, Dante, standby and impedance monitoring, are the chosen models to drive line arrays of McCauley speakers.
Besides V series, MDi amps are also installed in VIP areas of the stadiums together with smaller acoustics cabinets of other international brands.

All V amplifiers are controlled from the central control point using the RAM_OCS software.
A complex structure of amplifiers distributed in different zones of the venues is created for the total control of them, allowing a real time checking of all the McCauley ILA412 and MLA3-2 speakers hanged all around the stadiums.
All DSP presets and configuration were specifically created in situ for these installations, using RAM_OCS software.

All equipment – RAM Audio power amplifiers, monitoring and signal redundancy systems, media converters, routers and matrixes (BSS), control panels (Midas) – is connected by an optical cable. This allows the ability to control the configuration of all systems by a tablet via Wi-Fi. “You can go anywhere on the field or in the stands to achieve the desired sound”, emphasizes Nikolai Usov, head of design and installation department of Russian Sound Systems.
Nikolai says: “Computer programs for monitoring each of the devices have already been implemented. Using RAM_OCS, now each of the amplifiers, located at high heights, can be watched while sitting in the control room. The parameters of each individual device or each group of amplifiers can also be adjusted remotely.”
He also comments: “In the programming interface of RAM OCS, we have developed a special window that shows only malfunctions: if something happens, the amplifier number and the nature of the malfunction immediately appear. Technologies enable the operator to navigate in the environment and make decisions quickly, almost like a surgeon. You can see a picture of the functioning of the entire system and promptly adjust the overall picture at the expense of other devices and nodes.”

“A total of 3.5 million watts of genuine RAM Audio power,
to hear and feel every goal during the World Cup Russia!”

LUZHNIKI STADIUM - MOSCOW

It is the national stadium of Russia. Its total seating capacity of 81.000 makes it the largest football stadium in Russia and one of the largest stadiums in the World. It is the main stadium for FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 which hosts the opening and closing ceremonies and the Cup final matches.
Work to rebuild Luzhniki Stadium for Russian Championship began in 2013. Inside, the stadium has been totally refurbished, and the audio system completely changed and adapted in order to comply with the strict requirements of FIFA organization.

 

RAM Audio amplifiers installed:

As the main sound system driving 216 units of McCauley ILA412  and MLA3-2, assembled into 22 clusters (amps and cabinets are located at 45 metres above the pitch):

54 RAM Audio V12004, with DSP, Dante, Ethernet, standby and impedance monitoring.
