Equitation and Sound

Kling & Freitag systems ensured perfect sound and speech intelligibility at the "World Equestrian Festival". 

From July 8 to 17, the yearly horse show "World Equestrian Festival" took place at the CHIO racetrack in Aachen. E Media Design was in charge of the arrangement of the sound system and also of the dramaturgy of the show jumping and the dressage.


With nearly 1,8 million Euro of prize money, the World Equestrian Festival is the most important equitation event of the world, attended by over 350.000 enthusiastic horse riding fans. More than 500 horses with 381 riders from 27 nations took part in the famous competition.

E Media Design, an internationally acting company directed by G√ľnther Alberding, is ensuring the right sound and best comprehensibility of spoken parts. E Media Design belongs to the leaders in the field of equestrian events and has an experience of many years in the technical and dramaturgical realization of this kind of events. Beside the German Classics, E Media Design is supervising top horse shows with high requirements, as for example in Aachen, Amsterdam, St. Tropez, Cannes or Monte Carlo.


Regarding the choice of the sound systems, since more than 20 years E Media Design is mostly opting for Kling & Freitag products, which are approved by thousandfold application for language and music restitution, and which again and again are reaching the manifold high requirements.

In the main stadium for 40.000 spectators were employed in total 14 x CA 1215, 4 x LINE 212 and 4 x SW 215E. A particular feature was the separate control for every loudspeaker, for an optimal efficiency. Also, in case of fault, the decentralized sound conception permits the quick elimination of the problem without disturbance of the entire operation.

For E Media Design not only economic reasons are important for the choice of the sound system, but also the continual trustful cooperation with Kling & Freitag since 1985. Liability, good support and high quality products are the crucial factors which have generated over the years the confidence in these products.
