Siemens Building Technologies designed and installed the amazing new audio system for Louisville's legendary Churchill Downs horse racing facility, with more than 100 zones of ambient noise compensation.
Churchill Downs is home of horse racing's most famous race - the Kentucky Derby. It is also a sprawling, complex site, with a 147-acre racing track, seating for more than 48,000 spectators, housing for 1,400 horses in 47 barns, more than 500 trackside OTB (off track betting) stalls, and parking for 4,000 automobiles.
“The biggest challenge we faced was to design well over 100 zones of ambient noise compensation for this complex facility. We met that challenge easily, with 25 Rane RPM 88 Programmable Multiprocessors and SR 3 Smart Remotes.
"Thanks to Rane's quality processors, the ambient noise compensation worked beautifully. The most difficult part of the installation was simulating the crowd noise while we were setting up!"
