New York (June 27, 2007)--The ICC Cricket World Cup (ICC CWC) is among the most-televised sports events in the world, but real fans know there's nothing like watching it live. Folks in the Caribbean venues for the 2007 tournament (in which the Australian team triumphed) heard all the action via Electro-Voice audio systems, thanks to Caribbean Entertainment Technologies (CET Ltd.), the contracting division of Trinidad EV dealer/distributors AMR Ltd.
The Kensington Oval in Barbados--one of the many EV-loaded cricket stadiums in the Caribbean. 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).
"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."
