Hong Kong (January 4, 2010)--Singing extravaganza, Asian Million Star, premiered on Hong Kong television with help from the AKG DMS 700 wireless microphone system.
The television show, which has had five successful years in Taiwan, started months before the on-air premiere with 5,000 aspiring singers. It featured 25 contestants competing over the course of 13 episodes, with a panel of judges selecting the best vocal performers to move on to the finale.
Judges for the show included an array of respected audio and musical professionals, ranging from creative composers to studio producers.The AKG DMS 700 system provides digital audio transmission and offers 155 MHz of bandwidth. Also, the DMS 700 has 40 pre-programmed frequencies, which allowed it to transition between every musical style on the show.
"The AKG DMS 700 was specifically engineered for applications like Asian Million Star," said Thomas Stubics, AKG's product marketing manager for recording and broadcast. "Whether it's being used for a ballad, an orchestra or any other type of musical performance, the DMS 700 is perfectly suited with digital transmission that allows any type of performer to sound like a professional every time.
"The DMS 700 has an ease-of-use unmatched by any other brand," continued Stubics. "Even first-time audio performers have the ability to set the right channels and deliver uninterrupted performances, without having to worry about intricate system settings."
The move to Hong Kong offered Asian Million Star its first chance to use AKG's DMS 700 wireless audio system, with Tom Lee Engineering supplying the equipment.
