BSS Audio Provides Ultimate Control For Extravagant Atlantis Hotel In Dubai

bssatlantishotel.jpgSALT LAKE CITY, Utah — In what is considered to be the largest fixed sound installation project in the region, BSS Audio provided sound control in the brand new Atlantis Hotel in Dubai. The sound system covers all hotel restaurants, lobbies, corridors, visitor attractions, and retail outlets within the venue.

For the installation, 31 Soundweb London BLU-80 units, 10 BLU-32s, and six BLU-16s were utilized. All of these Soundweb London units offers configurable I/O, configurable signal processing and CobraNet audio and has open architecture which is fully configurable through HiQnet™ London Architect. The system also features 17 BLU-10s, 12 BLU-3s, and seven BLU-6s.

According to Stacey Lewis, sales and marketing manager for GSL Professional, the regional distributor for Harman products in the UAE, the Atlantis Hotel had very specific needs for the sound system. “The system needed to be easy to operate, with a common operating environment in terms of control in local zones and areas. Additionally, they needed a central system control with monitoring, scalability and flexibility, to accommodate potential future expansion plans or requirements.?

Additional Harman products that were utilized included Crown amplifiers. Thirty-five CTs 8200, eight CTs 4200 and 11 CTs 600 amplifiers were installed throughout the hotel. The amplifiers are networked and monitored on the same system as the Soundweb DSP system.

Dave Wilts, senior associate at Shen Milsom & Wilke, an acoustic consulting firm, explained the decision to specify BSS products for the Atlantis Hotel. “A large resort such as the Atlantis typically has extensive AV requirements. We wanted to provide the hotel operations staff with the most “easily managed” AV systems as possible. The BSS line provided a reliable architecture we could leverage for resort-wide, meta-level control of the BGM (background music) systems. For our completely IP-based AV systems, the IP tools and products from BSS offered the best solution, and support, for the project.”
