Prague Congress Center belongs to the most important congress centers in Europe. But its fame is slowly falling due to obsolete equipment and insufficient capacity. The construction of a new multifunctional hall and extensive reconstruction of the center's interior are supposed to reverse this trend. Modernization of AV technology, in which we have participated, is part of this reconstruction.
The entire distribution system and operating of new DiGiCo SD5 and SD10 digital mixing consoles is based on the topology of the interconnection of all elements in the system using a redundant optical wiring. For distribution, we have designed Dante digital distribution protocol using the benefits of classic (metallic, optical) cabling. The transfer to digital domain itself is realized by stage boxes which are freely configurable.
Mobile video equipment for Congress Hall and Forum Hall we have expanded with Extron converters (transmitters and receivers) that allow video signal processing at 4K resolution. Video signal distribution, which is also dimensioned for 4K resolution, is solved by a coaxial and optical cabling which terminates on patch panels.
We have complemented the current system in order to expand technical parameters of lighting equipment and its control, including new control cabling and the required connection points. For Congress Hall and Forum Hall, we have delivered and installed ChamSys scenic lighting control panels and ROBE and Robert Juliat smart lights (profile forming lights, LED lights with effects, LED PAR lights).
