Tejix, the audiovisual specialist, has announced the expansion of its team in Japan, with the appointment of sound specialist Saito Mayumi. The company also recently completed a parkwide project for French theme park Le Pal.
Tejix is pleased to announce that sound specialist Saito Mayumi has joined the team in its Tokyo office. Mayumi graduated from Tokyo’s Waseda University after studying engineering and acoustics. She comes to Tejix with 10 years experience at the largest theme park in Japan under her belt. Her responsibilities were to tweak the soundtracks and sound systems of several attractions at the park, as well as looking after parkwide BGM.
Mayumi brings strong engineering knowledge with her, as well as artistic flair. She will turn her system design, mixing and tuning talents to upcoming projects for Tejix, both in Asia and further afield. Speaking of her appointment, Mayumi says, “I am thrilled to join the Tejix team. I want to use my passion for sound to create lasting memories for audiences not only in Japan but all over the world.”
New parkwide system for Le Pal
Le Pal is a popular family attraction in France, combining elements of a park zoo and a theme park. Visitors can enjoy a network of long forest trails. Tejix has a long partnership with Le Pal and has previously installed many systems for the attraction. Because of this, Le Pal was confident in the choice of Tejix to install a new parkwide sound system.
The project presented a challenge due to the large surface of the park. To create a convincing sound field, the installation required no less than 600 loudspeakers. Tejix then selected suitable amplifier locations as close as possible to the speakers. The system uses networked audio for greater flexibility. All the music, effects and announcements of the park come from two audio processors.
A paging station is located at each attraction in the park, allowing the operator to easily page different areas. Speaker lines and amplifiers statuses are constantly monitored, with automatic fault detection. The installation does not use any analogue wires, meaning that sound is transmitted without any loss up to the amplifiers.
Tejix also recently worked on the renovation of the entrance hall to the French theme park Vulcania. Now guests are greeted with a show that erupts before their eyes.
