A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor

JUPITER GOES ON THE DEFENSE

BANGKOK, THAILAND: The Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand is home to the country’s Ministry of Defense, in addition to the upper echelon from each of the military’s three branches. Although office space occupies most of the building, a number of boardrooms, conference and war rooms require first-rate sound reinforcement. Recently, the Ministry called on Thai AV Systems contractor Fuzion Far East, well-respected not only for flawless designs but also for tremendous after-sale service, to improve the sound quality in the building’s function room. Fuzion Far East director Siri Wongkamolchun relied on a Symetrix Jupiter 8 “zero learning curve” signal processor to deliver stellar quality and functionality with minimal setup time and at a very competitive price.

The design is elegant in its simplicity and power. Fuzion Far East installed a complement of NEXO loudspeakers in the ceiling, including four PS8s, one PS8TD-V3, and two LS400s. Two Quest QM12MP stage monitors provide fold-back while minimizing feedback. Three Quest QA3004 two-channel amplifiers deliver abundant power to the loudspeakers. Inputs include existing microphones, a DVD player, a dedicated notebook computer, and a tie-in for a visiting computer. Six Coemar Ribala500 halogen lights illuminate the stage and provide a professional polish to the visual aesthetic that complements the articulate sound system.

The Symetrix Jupiter 8 is one of three hardware configurations in the Jupiter Series and provides eight inputs and eight outputs. The unit accepts all of the input sources at the headquarters’ function room to deliver equalization, limiting, mixing, and feedback suppression using the Gain-sharing Automixer 1 app. “We were excited to try the new Jupiter product because it uses context-specific apps, like on a smartphone, to minimize setup time,” said Wongkamolchun. “It was so easy to program and worked perfectly from the very beginning. We are excited to use Jupiter products in other installations.”

Users control the system with a wireless touchscreen panel, model VITY VIMATY70ZR. They select which input sources are active and their volumes via the Jupiter 8. Other controls, that users really have no business adjusting, are not made available. Users also control lighting presets using a SUNLITE interface that is controlled from the same wireless touchscreen panel. Finally, the unit also controls an NEC NP3150 projector and a locally-made RAZR screen.

“The installation was very successful,” said Wongkamolchun. “The AV system is professional and functional, and pressing the room into service for lectures and meetings has been transparent and straightforward for the Ministry of Defense.”
