Wisycom Completes World's Fair Expo Project

Vincenzo Vitale, Sound Engineer/Project Manager, and his team from RAI radiotelevisione italiana, Italy's leading television company, recently provided RF coverage over the vast area of the World's Fair Expo Milan. Wisycom was able to provide Vitale with the equipment he needed for the project.

The selection of Wisycom gear that Vitale used for the World's Fair Expo included, MTH400 (100mW) Wideband Handheld Transmitters, MTP40 Wideband Bodypack Transmitters, RPU300 Full-Duplex Reporters, MCR42 Miniature Camera Receivers, MRK960 – Dual Channel Receivers, MTK952 – Dual Channel Transmitters, MPR30-IEM – Wideband IEM Receivers, MFL Tx Rx Wideband Optical Links, LNN1Wideband Antennas and BAW Broadband Antenna Amplifiers.

Held to the northwest of Milan's city centre, the World's Fair 2015 theme was Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. It was the first world's fair with a food theme and featured areas that allowed countries to address food concerns of the world.

Vitale is quite familiar with Wisycom, as his team regularly uses the company's equipment to build special high quality installations where the complexity, extension of the venue and location of the sets don't allow for an OB-Van to cover all the needs.

"Wisycom was ideal for this massive project because its devices are made especially for broadcast with high-functionality and build quality standards," Vitale said.

"Wisycom knows it takes special attention to set up an installation of any size. This antenna distribution we used at the World's Fair Expo, allowed us to expand the coverage of many of our devices from different manufacturers while providing us the control to use a portion of the coverage areas.

"Vitale used Wisycom systems together with intercoms from Motorola and Tait. The Wisycom devices allowed the intercom receivers to be distributed to the entire area, allowing their range to be significantly increased. By using analog systems, Vitale was able to cover the expo's large area, which wasn't an easy task without crossing the legal limits in terms of electromagnetic pollution.

"Flexibility, quality and attention to small details makes Wisycom a great company. This World's Fair Expo was a very challenging and complicated project that was a great success thanks in part to Wisycom. We will definitely continue to use Wisycom on future projects (including three national networks and 22 multimedia channels for the Rio de Janeiro summer games), thereby ensuring the same reliability and functionality for our clients."
