Innovation Lab demands cutting edge audio solution from Renkus-Heinz


Krung Thai Bank recently unveiled the Krungthai Innovation Lab at its head office in Bangkok. Specifically created as a centre for developing emerging technologies within finance and banking, professionals innovate data and make improvements to products and processes across the company. At the core of the Innovation Lab, the Showcase Stadium is used for major announcements, product launches and other events throughout the year. An 8.2m x 2.1m display can host a small group of on-site viewers in addition to offering live broadcasts. Located in an open floor plan environment near one of the facilities’ main reception areas, the potential for noise pollution emitting from this zone was quickly identified. AV integrator and supplier Vichai Trading was charged with designing an audio system that would target the acoustic energy on the audience area.

This was a project where we knew from the start that beam steering technology would be crucial,” explained Vichai Trading marketing supervisor Juthamas Jailuck. “In addition to the need to keep sound directed in one place so it doesn’t interrupt banking operations, the tiled flooring and other hard surfaces would create interfering reflections. Renkus-Heinz’s beam steering technology addresses these problems in one package.”

Vichai Trading integrated Renkus-Heinz ICL-F-RN arrays from the IC Live family of digital beam steering solutions on both sides of the super-wide display. Two CF18S-5 self-powered subwoofers complement the arrays. The IC Live family is designed primarily for applications that require higher output, but with the same accurate control and functionality as the Iconyx Gen5 range. Individual driver control ensures vertical pattern control in the delivery of intelligible speech in such reverberant spaces.

Renkus-Heinz’s RHAON software was used for precisely programming the loudspeaker configuration on-site. Ultimately, the Vichai Trading technicians succeeded in keeping the audio focused solely on the audience in the Showcase Stadium. By positioning audio appropriately, sound is directed out into the reception area where it would disturb regular banking operations. Additionally, by avoiding reflective surfaces within the venue, the audio quality and clarity is improved for the audience.

“The IC Live provides the sound solution to make the space sonically amazing without any acoustic treatment,” added Vichai Trading project sales engineer Phuriphat Sutthivanichkul. “With their compact footprint, the loudspeakers have a very good appearance, yet still offer high output audio that can be used for speeches in addition to musical live performances.”
