Bank of Thailand Future-Proofs New Learning Center with HARMAN Professional Solutions AV Systems

Mahajak Development deploys JBL Professional, Crown, Soundcraft, BSS, AMX and Martin solutions for interactive installations at Bank of Thailand’s Learning Center

BANGKOK, Thailand—Mahajak Development Co. recently deployed an end-to-end HARMAN Professional Solutions AV system at Bank of Thailand’s Learning Center library and museum.

Bank of Thailand is the central financial body overseeing all monetary policy in Thailand. Across the road from its Bangkhunprom Palace headquarters, the Bank recently established a Learning Center complex in its former mint facility. The five-story building contains the Prince Vivadhanajaya Library, dedicated presentation rooms and research areas, a banquet hall and the Bank of Thailand Museum, which offers guided tours and interactive exhibits about the history of Thai currency. The Learning Center required a flexible, integrated audiovisual solution that could be expanded and reconfigured as needed. To meet these goals, Bank of Thailand hired Mahajak Development to design a complete HARMAN Professional AV solution consisting of JBL loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, Soundcraft mixers, BSS signal processors, AMX control systems and Martin lighting fixtures.

“The idea was to create an interactive environment in the Learning Center using high-tech scalable solutions to ensure our future needs are met as the Center grows and changes,” said the spokesperson for Bank of Thailand. “The interactive exhibitions required clear speech reproduction, eye-catching visuals and advanced control systems to run it all seamlessly. HARMAN’s best-in-class audio systems, video switchers and interfaces helped us create an inspiring, collaborative experience at the Learning Center.”

For large events in the banquet hall and library, JBL VT4888 and AC599 loudspeakers with SRX812P and ASB7128 subwoofers project powerful, high fidelity sound. In the library’s presentation rooms, JBL AC195 full-range speakers and Control 16C/T ceiling units provide even coverage for mid-size audiences. The museum’s smaller exhibits utilize JBL LSR305 studio monitors and E55BT wireless headphones for private listening and audio assistance. Control 28-1 loudspeakers and SB-150 wireless subwoofers provide wide coverage for background music in the entrance hall. The system is powered by Crown I-Tech HD and DCi Series amplifiers. Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixers allow staff to easily make adjustments. Audio is routed through a network of BSS BLU-100 signal processors with flexible digital architecture that can be reconfigured as needed.

To enable seamless AV control, Mahajak outfitted the facility with a network of integrated AMX systems. DVX-2250HD presentation switchers and DGX digital media switchers form the core of the system, connected by DX-TX-DWP transmitters and DX-RX receivers. MSD-701 touch panels and the TPControl iPad app provide staff, presenters and guests with tactile interfaces for controlling various interactive features. Martin MAC Aura and Quantum Profile fixtures create an immersive lighting experience in the banquet hall and museum exhibits.

“A distinct venue like the Bank of Thailand Learning Center requires a world-class audio-visual system that provides end-to-end capabilities,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director at Mahajak Development. “HARMAN's diverse portfolio of products gave us the ability to build reliable, robust and future-proof AV systems for the venue. There were two overhead projectors installed to ensure complete real-time redundancy. During installation, we made adjustments to ensure the speakers were fitted at the right angles to deliver optimum audio experience.”

“Creating an interactive learning space for Bank of Thailand has been a unique, exciting challenge for HARMAN,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM of HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "The project required a sophisticated AV system that would deliver rich sound and stunning visuals for an immersive interactive experience. Leveraging our global experience with projects like this and Mahajak Development’s deep knowledge and capabilities, we were able to seamlessly execute the project.”

HARMAN Professional Solutions Hits a Homerun at Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium

Kinoton Korea selects JBL, Crown, Soundcraft and BSS solutions to deliver an impactful fan experience at SK Wyverns baseball games

INCHEON, South Korea—Kinoton Korea recently equipped Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium with a complete networked sound reinforcement system by HARMAN Professional Solutions.

Built in 2001, SK Happy Dream Stadium plays host to home games by SK Wyverns, a professional baseball team based in Incheon, South Korea. As part of a continuous effort to improve the stadium, which seats 25,000 fans, the stadium recently decided to upgrade the stadium’s aging sound system. In order to provide fans with a rich audio experience with superior coverage and intelligibility, SK Wyverns hired local audio integrator Kinoton Korea to design and install a premium sound reinforcement system. Kinoton Korea selected a complete HARMAN networked audio solution for its industry-leading sound quality and reliable performance.

“The stadium owners love the new HARMAN system—the improved audio coverage really enhances the fans’ experiences during games,” said Cheol Yoon, VP, Kinoton Korea Inc. “South Korea experiences a wide variety of weather as the seasons change, so it was critical that all stadium speakers be weather-proof. The ability to utilize weather-resistant JBL speakers enabled us to provide SK Happy Dream Stadium with a high quality sound reinforcement system that is perfectly suited to the dynamic South Korean climate.”  

The HARMAN system installed by Kinoton at SK Happy Dream Stadium features a range of weather-resistant JBL Professional speakers distributed throughout the stadium, including 54 AM7215/95 WRX, 16 AW595, nine ASB7128 WRX, 37 AC26 WRX, 39 Control 26CT and 15 Control 25AV speakers. The entire speaker system is powered by Crown DriveCore Install Series amplifiers. In the control room, microphone and playback signals are mixed using a Soundcraft Vi1 Series mixer, while two JBL LSR305 speakers provide accurate monitoring.

Kinoton designed the entire system around a BSS Soundweb London BLU-800 signal processor and two BLU-320 expanders, providing the foundation of the custom HARMAN solution. Additionally, six Soundweb London BLU-BOB2 break-out boxes each offer eight channels of analog audio output expansion via the high bandwidth, fault tolerant digital audio bus. Finally, six BSS MC-1 fiber optic media converters provide signal transport over extremely long distances (up to 6.2 miles) using a single cable. MC-1 devices utilize automatic link restoration which re-establishes network links between two devices when any Soundweb London device is disconnected or restarted.

“The BLU Link connectivity helped us ensure clean digital connections between the processors and amplifiers,” continued Cheol Yoon, VP, Kinoton Korea Inc. “The MC-1 was also critical for successful transmission over the necessary distances. The main broadcasting room was in a completely different space than the amplifier racks, so we used optical cables for transmission. The BSS Soundweb London system was the perfect choice in this scenario.”

“At HARMAN Professional Solutions, we understand the excitement that fans feel during baseball games,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “We are pleased that our solutions help keep the momentum at SK Wyverns’ games at a high level. We thank Kinoton Korea for their expertise and excellent customer service, and for their faith in utilizing HARMAN products to satisfy their clients’ expectations.”

HARMAN Professional Solutions Brings Exceptional Audio to Rajamangala National Stadium

Mahajak Development and Baan Rig deploy a complete HARMAN Professional Solutions audio system to elevate the fan experience at Thailand’s biggest stadium

BANGKOK, Thailand—Mahajak Development and Baan Rig recently deployed a complete HARMAN Professional Solutions audio system featuring JBL, Soundcraft, Crown and BSS solutions at Rajamangala National Stadium.

Home to Thailand’s national football team, Rajamangala is a 65,000-seat sports and entertainment venue that also hosts international events such as the AFC Asian Cup, pop concerts and political rallies. Rajamangala’s management recently decided to upgrade to a high-impact audio system that could deliver even coverage and intelligible sound to every seat, while also streamlining and simplifying production requirements. They hired audio integrators Mahajak Development and rigging experts Baan Rig to deploy an array of JBL Precision Directivity loudspeakers along the roof of the stadium. The system also includes a robust network of Crown DCi Series amplifiers, Soundcraft digital mixing consoles and BSS signal processors.

“Rajamangala is a huge stadium, so covering every seat evenly was a challenge in itself,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director of Mahajak Development. “Mounting the speakers on the roof of the stadium was highly challenging as well, and we had to carefully balance their weight and position when rigging up the system. We worked in close coordination with Baan Rig to secure everything safely while ensuring optimal audio coverage.”

Mahajak chose JBL Precision Directivity 6212, 564, 595, and 5122 loudspeakers for their high output, focused dispersion patterns and WRC weather protection. Strategic placement of the PD speakers and the addition of subwoofers created a powerful full-range system that could project evenly across the stadium. Crown DCi4 1250N and 2400N amplifiers provide high-efficiency power to the array while integrating with the stadium’s digital network. BSS BLU-100 digital signal processors route audio seamlessly with a convenient and stable digital architecture, and all mixing is done on Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixing consoles.

“Large-scale, multi-use venues like Rajamangala require advanced audio systems to deliver clear voice and music coverage across all seating sections,” Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director of Mahajak Development. “HARMAN’s audio solutions not only provide great sound to the entire stadium, but they’re durable enough for constant use and inclement weather with excellent after-sales service, which was one of the many reasons we were choosen.”

“Elevating the audience’s experience at Rajamangala National Stadium is an absolute delight for us at HARMAN Professional Solutions,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "We thank Mahajak Development and Baan Rig for their expertise and thoroughness in safely installing a world class HARMAN audio system in this international sporting venue.”

KOTA KINABALU, Malaysia—Mahajak Trio recently outfitted the Kota Kinabalu Marriott hotel with a custom HARMAN Professional Solutions audio system to deliver an invigorating entertainment experience for guests. This project was collaborated together with the AV system integrator, Eastern Global Sdn.Bhd

Kota Kinabalu Marriott Hotel is a premium five-star resort located at The Waterfront entertainment center on the coast of the South China Sea. Featuring full spa services, fine-dining dining outlets, and show-stopping performances, Kota Kinabalu Marriott is an idyllic entertainment destination in the "Land Below The Wind". Known for hosting opulent events held in their Grand Ballroom, Kota Kinabalu Marriott hired Mahajak Trio to install an industry-leading audio system capable of delivering world-class sound throughout the resort. Mahajak Trio designed a complete HARMAN Professional Solutions audio system made up of JBL Professional speakers and power amplifiers, AKG microphones and BSS signal processors.

“Kota Kinabalu Marriott needed an all-new state-of-the-art audio solution capable of distributing a large number of audio channels throughout their massive facilities,” said TK YIP, Senior Business  Manager of  Mahajak Trio. “We were able to design the perfect solution using HARMAN products thanks to their flexibility, reliability, and impeccable sound quality.”

Kota Kinabalu Marriott’s new audio system utilizes self-powered JBL SRX815P and PRX812W loudspeakers, as well as JBL PRX818XLF subwoofers for stunning sound quality in the Grand Ballroom. Guests can enjoy performances anywhere on the premises with JBL Control 16C/T, Control 47C/T, 8124 and 8138 in-ceiling loudspeakers powered by JBL CSA 140Z and CSA 1300Z single-channel amplifiers.

The system can be easily controlled with the JBL CSR-V remote volume control and easily distributed using BSS BLU-160 signal processors, analog input card, BLU-BOB2 break out box and Ethernet controllers. Kota Kinabalu Marriott was also outfitted with a pair of JBL LSR305 2‑Way studio monitors for precise reference monitoring. Speakers and performers in the Grand Ballroom sound crystal-clear thanks to the AKG D5 and WMS470 D5 handheld mics, CGN331 E gooseneck microphone, and CS3 BU Conference base unit paired with CS3 DU 30 delegate and CS3 CU 30 chairman microphones.

“We were absolutely thrilled at what a difference the new audio system has made,” said Denison Seow, Eartern Global Managing Director.  “Our client comment on the sound quality in the Grand Ballroom at every event, and now they can enjoy performances from anywhere on the premises. It’s really elevated the luxury level here at Kota Kinabalu Marriott.”

Grand Zenith Hotel Transforms Events Into Unforgettable Experiences with HARMAN Professional Solutions

Mahajak Trio deploys JBL, Crown, Soundcraft, AKG and BSS solutions to provide exceptional sound for a wide range of performances and events

PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia—Mahajak Trio recently deployed a complete HARMAN Professional Solutions audio system at the Grand Zenith Hotel to provide premium sound for performances, events, meetings and more.

One of the most luxurious hotels in Malaysia, Grand Zenith features amenities like fine dining, spa services and a lavish Sky Lounge bar. Recently, Grand Zenith decided to update its multi-purpose ballroom with a state-of-the-art audio system capable of delivering exceptional audio for a wide range of events and performances. The hotel also used the opportunity to upgrade the audio system in meeting rooms to allow for more efficient inter-staff communication. To achieve these goals, Grand Zenith hired industry-leading audio experts Mahajak Trio, who suggested a complete HARMAN Professional audio system.  

Mahajak Trio outfitted the Grand Zenith ballroom with JBL AC2215/95 loudspeakers and Crown CTs 1200 power amplifiers, as well as new JBL EON610 active loudspeakers for additional coverage. Audio is mixed on a Soundcraft EFX12 mixing console, which features built-in 24-bit digital Lexicon® effects processors. A rugged AKG GN50E modular gooseneck microphone with the high-performance CK31 condenser capsule provides the perfect hands-free solution for speakers, while a WMS470 Vocal Set D5 provides wireless mobility for more energetic performers.

“We chose the JBL AC2215/95s because they offer extended coverage, which helps fill out the ballroom without the need for a big, bulky rig,” said HL Teo, General Manager, Mahajak Trio. “The Soundcraft EFX12 console has built-in effects processors designed by Lexicon, which eliminates the need for any outboard gear. We were able to create a very efficient, streamlined audio system capable of handling Grand Zenith’s largest events with ease.”

Mahajak Trio implemented a similar system for Grand Zenith’s meeting rooms. JBL Control 26C ceiling speakers powered by Crown DCi 2|300 amps reinforce speakers with stunning clarity. AKG GN50E, CK31, D5 and WMS470 Vocal Set D5 microphones provide a variety of high-quality options for speakers to choose from. BSS EC-4BV and BLU-100 signal processors provide simple volume and distribution controls, allowing staff to easily control the system without the need for a dedicated sound technician.

“We are privileged to be partner of choice to provide world-class audio and control solutions at the Grand Zenith hotel in Malaysia,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "Elevating Experiences for our customers and their customers is the hallmark of HARMAN brands and solutions. We thank Mahajak Trio for working closely with the hotel group and deploying a successful design that accentuates the wonderful atmosphere elevating the experiences for the hotel guests.”
