Biamp Nexia Provides Fat Buddha Restaurant With Audio Performance And System Versatility

BEAVERTON OREGON, November 29, 2007 — Demonstrating how systems integrators can provide restaurant and hospitality outlets with audio systems that advance the atmospherics and branding of an enterprise, leading UK integrator Blaydon Communications recently deployed Biamp® Nexia® digital sound processors at the new Pan-Asian restaurant ‘Fat Buddha‘ in Durham City. The AV design for the 1.4m, 220-seat restaurant needed to be visually discrete, highly intelligible and scalable for future expansion.

Blaydon Communications Limited insisted that the system be controlled by two of the highly versatile Nexia SP digital sound processors purchased through beyerdynamic UK. Dave Chapman from Blaydon commented that “we have used these and other products from Biamp and found them to be extremely adaptable and allow us to give the client virtually whatever they require.”

The multi-zone restaurant comprises a ground floor bar covered by six powered loudspeakers; a side seating zone covered by an additional two powered loudspeakers; a main restaurant with four loudspeakers, and four ‘Tatami‘ rooms catering for about 12 persons in each room with local volume controls and loudspeakers. The sound system is divided into four zones including a local digital control panel the restaurant staff uses to select the music source and the volume level for the various parts of the venue.

The flexibility of Nexia was demonstrated in a very short time; the client required another sound source for ‘birthday‘ music to be played only in the main restaurant with automatic muting of whatever music is being played; another audio input was also required from a freeview box. The software controlling the Nexia was amended by Blaydon Communications engineers and uploaded to the processor after the new inputs were installed. The venue has quickly built on its strengths and is now often fully booked with the sound system enhancing the overall ambience of the restaurant.

Commenting on the installation, Graeme Harrison, Biamp Systems Vice President noted, “Driven largely by broader availability of advanced automotive sound and higher-end home theatre systems, consumer expectations for better sound have reached the retail and hospitality market where audio atmospherics have been elevated as critical contributors to the customer experience. As the restaurant market continues to gravitate to quality, we‘re seeing more and more integrators turn to Biamp Nexia as it comprehensively addresses the integrator requirements and the end user needs. Blaydon Communications‘ excellent work with Fat Buddha‘s is a prime example.”
