An integrated HARMAN AV solution provides sophisticated systems control and premium audio performance for five-star hotel staff and visitors
HEFEI, China—The Wanda Vista Hefei, located in Binhu New District of Hefei, China, is a luxury, five-star hotel known for its elegant atmosphere, traditional Huizhou architecture and harmony with “Hui” culture.
In addition to 205 private rooms and suites, the hotel features a lobby, 4,900-square-foot banquet hall, eight conference rooms, restaurants, fitness center, swimming pool and spa. In order to provide audio coverage for such a wide range of areas with different functions, the hotel hired Shenzhen Hongzhe Intelligent Systems Engineering Co., Ltd. to install a complete HARMAN AV solution consisting of JBL Professional speakers, Crown amplifiers, AKG microphones, BSS audio processing and AMX AV systems.
“As a five-star hotel, we strive to maintain an elegant atmosphere, and a portion of that ambience comes from the music that plays throughout the hotel,” said Mr. Chen Xiaojun, Director of AV Operations. “Our audio equipment needs to be top of the line to meet the hotel’s high standards and overcome acoustic challenges created by the traditional architecture. JBL Control Series ceiling speakers are integrated seamlessly into the hotel’s foyer and high lobby ceilings. They are unobtrusive and blend in aesthetically, while providing excellent clarity and pleasing sound quality. We also use JBL EON Series powered speakers when we host events that require portable sound reinforcement.”
The sophisticated HARMAN AV system allows the Hefei Wanda Vista staff to produce a wide range of successful events. An AKG WMS470 wireless microphone system provides smooth and intelligible speech in the grand ballroom and meeting spaces. Utilizing a BSS PDP-DSP public address processor and CobraNet network, audio signals are routed to Crown CTs Series amplifiers and configured to combine (or isolate) the speakers in each room or zone. Operators can discretely make volume adjustments in each meeting space with BSS BLU Series control panels. For convenience, an AMX NX-3200 central control panel enables remote control of all AV equipment using a wireless tablet.
“To uphold our reputation as China’s most prestigious hotel brand, it’s imperative that every guest has a memorable, top-class experience,” related Xiaojun. “When we host high-profile events, such as when Wanda Group recently held their annual shareholder’s meeting in our grand ballroom, it’s important for our AV equipment to consistently deliver the highest quality sound. Thanks to the reliability and flexibility of the integrated HARMAN solution, we can be certain that our AV experience will exceed all expectations.”
