Why was room acoustic needed to be solved?
In the premises for meetings, presentations and another sessions, it is needed to understand well those who have the word. Contrarily, where you work, you don’t want to hear colleague’s phone call. That is why it is necessary in such areas to ensure the correct ratio of acoustic elements that absorb unwanted noise. In this case, we have designed:
- Full-area suspended ceiling with a combination of two acoustically different boards and wall tiles from acoustic absorbers to ensure the clarity of a speaker in the auditorium.
- Partial suspended acoustic ceiling and wall tiles in meeting rooms to ensure clarity during video conference calls.
- Acoustic dividers, suspended ceilings, wall tiles and rooms for calling in large offices to absorb excessive noise that would interfere with acoustic comfort.
- Auditorium is equipped with video wall consisting of 36 pieces 55“ LCD displays NEC UN551VS. Source of its signal is a video wall controller VuWall VuScape VS560M located in a rack in control room where is also all other AV equipment associated with the auditorium. Sound is provided by two passive line-array speakers Fohhn Linea LX‑500 located on sides of the video wall. Video is captured by Optics 20x SDI PTZ cameras which signal is brought to Blackmagic ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K live production switcher, and sound is captured by nine Sennheiser ceiling mounted microphones. For speakers and audience inquires, the auditorium is equipped with a 16-channel wireless microphone system.
- Creative room will be equipped with three ultra-short-throw projectors NEC U321H mounted to a wall. Projectors will be connected to PC in a rack and they will project on a interactive screen we-inspire. Sound system will consist of two JBL Control CRV speakers located under the ceiling.
- Rooms for smaller groups will be equipped with 65″ UHD touch LCD displays NEC X651UHD-2 SST located on a wall. Speaker system will consist of high-end speaker system NEC SP-65SM. On the top edge of LCD displays will be placed USB camera connected to LCD display. Sound will be captured by Sennheiser microphone hung from the ceiling.
- Meeting rooms are equipped with Cisco MX700 a MX800 videoconference system which consist of two LCD displays, codec and two cameras with 1080p60 resolution. Touch panels on the table are used to control video conference systems. Presented content can be sent to the system via HDMI cable or via Barco ClickShare wireless system.
