Slovakia Medical University Complex Get the Renkus-Heinz Treatment

Banská Bystrica, Slovakia – July 2014… One of the region’s most respected institutions, Slovak Medical University has recently completed a major renovation and reconstruction project at their campus in Banská Bystrica. The multi-functional complex includes several classrooms, student dormitories, and a large, multi-purpose auditorium and presentation hall, used for graduations, conferences, technical seminars, and more.

The complex underwent a full technology modernization, including new audio, conferencing, and interpretation systems, as well as video, digital signage, and information technology systems. The systems were designed and installed by Bratislav-based MediaTech, one of the largest professional AV firms in central Europe, and include a full range of loudspeakers from Orange County, CA-based Renkus-Heinz.

The main system includes several ICONYX IC16-R-II and IC8-R-II digitally steered arrays, as well as a number of ICX7-II mechanically steered arrays. ICONYX steered array technology enables precise steering of the sound toward the audience and away from walls and other reflective surfaces, reducing reflections and improving intelligibility.

“The hall has always been very challenging acoustical space, and there were a lot of problems with spoken word intelligibility. Of course, this affects people’s ability to communicate, and to learn,” reports MediaTech General Director, Ing. Bohumil Tonkovic. “The ICONYX systems really provided an excellent solution. Intelligibility has been dramatically improved, and their low profile design integrated nicely with the building’s architecture.”

Elsewhere in the complex, Renkus-Heinz CFX41 and CFX61 two way systems provide additional sound reinforcement. State-of-the-art video systems include large scale remote controlled projection screens with Mitsubishi projectors, PTZ cameras for conferencing, and full multi-language interpretation facilities.

Working under an exceptionally demanding timeline, the team from MediaTech handled the entire project, from planning and preparation to system design and installation, as well as training on-site personnel in the operation of all systems.

“Banska Bystrica finally has a space that meets all the parameters of top quality acoustics and information technology,” enthused Professor MD. Svetozár Dluholucký, PhD., Dean of Slovak Medical University.
