Hong Kong:

Extron systems are providing AV switching, distribution and control at the Neptune gourmet restaurant at the Ocean Park oceanarium and amusement park, the centrepiece of which is a 13m-wide, floor-to-ceiling aquarium teeming with 5,000 sea creatures.

AV integrator BAP Technology Consultants designed an AV solution to provide sophisticated multimedia throughout the venue, which can be divided into separate spaces for different events. The system features an Extron DTP CrossPoint 86 4K 8x6 scaling presentation matrix switcher and DMP 128 Plus C ProDSP Processors with Dante handle video and audio processing and distribution for all the dining and presentation spaces. The matrix switcher distributes video from sources including a PTZ camera, Blu-ray players, laptops and USB memory sticks to laser projectors and flat panel displays in interior meeting, dining, and service areas, as well as outdoor video signage. The switcher’s Vector 4K scaling engine matches its output to the native resolution of the displays, optimising image quality in each venue. The DMP 128 Plus ProDSP Processors distribute audio via Dante networking, providing DSP functions for each room including mixing, equalisation, tone control and acoustic echo cancellation. Extron XPA U 1002-70V amps drive ceiling speakers in the restaurant seating area and two intimate VIP dining rooms. IPCP Pro 555 and IPL Pro CR88 IP Link Pro control processors regulate operation of the matrix switcher, audio processors, Blu-ray players, displays and projectors, screen raise and lower and mood lighting. Staff can configure functions via a TLP Pro 725T 7-inch TouchLink Pro touchpanel at the reception desk.

“With the fully networked audio system, combining and dividing rooms is simple and efficient, with all inputs and outputs automatically assigned in preset states,” explained BAP’s sales director, Marco Tang. “Microphones can be assigned to any partition space to accommodate event bookings. The TouchLink Pro touchpanel provides intuitive control of venue partitioning, signal source selection, screen raise and lower, mood lighting adjustment, audio level adjustment, and display power. For combined usage of the space, a simple button press reconfigures the AV system to send signals to designated areas. The Extron matrix switcher fulfils application and performance requirements such as HDMI and DTP inputs and outputs that support 4K video over short and long cable runs. For audio, the Extron ProDSP Processor and Dante networking makes combining and dividing rooms simple and efficient, with all inputs and outputs automatically assigned in pre-set states. Importantly, non-technical restaurant personnel are able to manipulate the system to change room layouts as well as operate AV and lighting systems via the user-friendly touch panel controls.”

According to Finson Lam, director of engineering at BAP: “Our control system programmer spent much effort to understand the client’s operational requirements and workflows and created a solution that allows control everywhere with the touch of a button. This drastically reduces the restaurant’s labour costs and turn-around times when setting up the venue for each new event.”
