University of Oslo Dental School Opens Wide for Iconyx

Oslo, Norway – June 2014… The University of Oslo is recognized as one of Northern Europe’s most prestigious institutions, ranking among the world’s top 100 universities. With a strong focus on Science, Law, and Medicine, the University’s School of Dentistry is among the most respected teaching facilities of its kind.

The University’s main Campus Medica building is home to the offices and laboratories of distinguished scientists and doctors from across the globe, along with dozens of classrooms and a large 350-seat lecture hall and demonstration lab. The auditorium was recently treated to an AV makeover, installing a new sound and video system featuring Renkus-Heinz Iconyx IC Live digitally steered arrays.

The system was designed by Cowi Consultaing Group, led by Geir Kristoffersen, working together with leading Norwegian pro AV distributors Benum AS, and installed by Caverion Norway. It features IC Live ICL-FR Dual digitally steered arrays to the left and right of a large video screen, with each array topped by a single IC215S dual 15-inch subwoofer to deliver articulate, full-range sound to the entire hall.

“The Iconyx arrays enabled us to focus the sound solidly on the audience area, and steer it away from the walls and ceiling,” explains Sverre Jøssund, Product Manager for Benum AS. “And the Iconyx form factor is much more low profile than a traditional line array, so it doesn’t create sightline issues for any of the seats.” An Allen and Heath matrix mixer handles the inputs from ten channels of wired and wireless Shure microphones, with Crestron control making the system quite user friendly.

“Using the beam steering to its full potential, the ICONYX speakers were able to deliver great, well controlled speech intelligibility to the very back rows,” added Geir Kristoffersen. “It is difficult to imagine how a conventional loudspeaker could have delivered this type of performance.”

“The IC Live fit perfectly in this space, and really satisfied all their needs,” Jøssund concludes. “You can play heavy rock music, or the softest professor’s voice, and it all sounds clear, clean, and powerful. They’re really happy with the system.”
