A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


Alongside the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games, the ICC Cricket World Cup (ICC CWC) is among the most-televised sports events in the world. Now the ICC CWC has one more thing in common with the stadiums that host these illustrious sporting traditions: Electro-Voice sound.

EV achieved VIP prominence in the Caribbean venues for the 2007 tournament (in which the Australian team triumphed), thanks to Caribbean Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (CET) of Barataria, Trinidad.

CET specified distributed EV ZX1 and EVID loudspeaker systems for the VIP boxes and spectator stands at stadiums in Barbados (Kensington Oval), Trinidad (Queen‘s Park Oval) and Antigua (Viv Richards Stadium), effectively balancing world-class audio quality with budget-friendliness. The speakers are integrated with fire alarm and life safety systems, ensuring clear, reliable sound reinforcement for any alarm event.
“CET chose our powerful EVID C4.2 ceiling speakers, along with surface-mountable EVID 3.2 and ZX1i models, to get the best bang for the buck in these beautiful venues,” says Jaison O‘Connor of Electro-Voice reps Sales Force & Associates. “Michael Pereira of CET is leading the charge for EV in the islands; as a former EV rep for Florida and the Caribbean, Michael is well versed in the EV product line and a great ambassador–he‘s become a vital asset in growing EV brand recognition across the Caribbean. The world heard the difference EV stadium sound makes during last year‘s World Cup in Germany: now that same level of sonic performance can be found in the West Indies. Cricket is like a religion here, and EV is enhancing the whole spectator experience.”

EV Loudspeaker List:

Trinidad (Queen‘s Park Oval): EVID C4.2 (43 pairs)
Barbados (Kensington Oval): EVID C4.2 (200 pairs)
Antigua (Viv Richards Stadium): EVID C4.2 (116 pairs); EVID 3.2tw (16 pairs, transformer/white finish); ZX1i-90tw (7x, transformer/white finish)
