In the hotel premises, you can encounter spaces with a variety of uses from meeting rooms, through social spaces to a wellness center. For AV technology designers, it is a pleasent exercise of their wide range of skills. That was the case at the Hotel Danube for which we have designed AV equipment.

What spaces were part of the project?
  • Hotel lobby,
  • foyer,
  • meeting rooms,
  • conference hall with mobile partitions and control room,
  • wellness center (gym, swimming pool, whirpool, sauna, massage saloon, fitness, changing rooms),
  • halls and other common areas.

For social and common areas together with wellness center, we have designed multi-zone ambient sound system consisting of speakers built in suspend ceiling. Conference spaces are going to be equipped with presentation AV equipment, either projectors with screens, or LCD displays. Large conference hall is going to be equipped with interpretation system and there are going to be installed IP dome cameras for image preview of the hall.

What does our AV equipment do?
  • AV equipment of the conference hall we have designed in order to allow the whole space to be operated at the same time while providing AV equipment for spaces separated with mobile partitions.
  • We have divided social areas and the wellness center into the separate zones and thanks to that you can control playlists and their loudness from a control panel at a front deks.
Technical Specification
  • Large conference hall is going to be equipped with a central projector with a possibility to divide to the hall into three smaller identical spaces. In a default mode, the central Epson EB-2250U projector of 1920 × 1200 resolution and 4000 ANSI lm output power projects on a motorized screen of 3.5m width. The second identical projector is used as complementary or for longitudinal orientation of projection in a split mode. In this case, a screen of 3m width is used.

    IP dome cameras Dahua IPC-HDBW2300RP-Z are also part of the AV system. There are going to be used for image preview of the hall. Sound system in the hall consists of JBL Control 14C/T two-way full-range ceiling loudspeakers. For people who present, we have designed a wireless microphone system.

    Extron touch control panel is going to ease operation and for external sources there are going to be installed floor and table connection points.

  • BOSCH language distribution system is going to consist of four 6-channel interpreter desks with loudspeaker providing listening and call functions for interpreters. In the control room, there are going to be installed BOSCH INT-TX04 4-channel IR transmitter and BOSCH LBB 3422/10 symmetrical audio input and interpreter module.

    In the conference hall, there are going to be available BOSCH conference system. For communication, we have designed wireless conference discussion devices (4 participants and 1 chairman) with battery packs and microphones, these devices are going to be connected to a wireless access point. Also, we are going to install a radiator for infrared signal distribution throughout the conference venue, enabling delegates to listen to the proceedings by means of personal pocket receivers. A total of 150 pieces of these receivers and headphones are going to be available.

  • In a rack, there is going to be installed audio signal processor BSS Audio BLU 100 with 3 BSS Audio BLU BOB1 break-out-box extender and 2 BSS Audio BLU BIB break-in-box extenders. Also, there are going to be installed 2 modular audio system and a quad-channel power amplifier AUDAC, Oppo UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player and Apple TV. Extron receivers, transmitter and a matrix switcher are going to be used for signal distribution. For preview, there are going to be used three FullHD diplays and Klipsch R-15PM power monitor speakers.
  • Social and common areas and wellness center are going to be equipped with multi-zone ambient sound system consisting of JBL Control 14C/T two-way full-range ceiling loudspeakers. Zoning is solved by the power branches in the individual areas. Thanks to a Extron scaling presentation matrix switcher that controls the entire zone sound system, it is possible to group together individual power branches without a physical change in the system.
