Tree Of Prosperity Show Blooms At Wynn Macau With Electrosonic

WynnElectrosonic Systems Inc. (Electrosonic) provided audio, master show control, an intercom system and a closed-circuit video surveillance system for the complex Tree of Propserity Show in the Wynn Macau, which opened in 2006. Electrosonic engineered and installed the components for the spectacular attraction, which is unlike anything anywhere else in the world.
