CSA is in control at Aston Sentul
INDONESIA: Located south of Jakarta in Sentul City-Bogo, the Aston Sentul Lake Resort and Conference Centre is a four-star resort offering 212 guest rooms and suite, eight villas, 11 state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a ballroom able to accommodate up to 900 guests. With Sentul City set embark on a large-scale development plan of up to 3,000ha – encompassing new residential areas, office towers, schools, hospitals, golf courses, sports facilities, shopping malls and conference centres, as well as a new generation of transportation (LRT) that connects the central area of Jakarta and Bogor City – the hotel was also looking for a complete, up-to-date and easily controlled audiovisual upgrade for its ballroom, choosing to enlist CSA Indonesia for the project.
CSA Indonesia specified an all-encompassing automation system built around an AMX Enova DGX 800 UHD/4K digital media switcher system installed in the equipment room and three AMX Enzo presentation systems. The Enova DGX 800 has been outfitted with a pair of DGX-I-DXL twisted pair 4K input boards and a pair of DGX-O-DXL twisted pair output boards, as well as an Enova DGX Audio Insert/Extract Board. In addition, six DXLink multi-format wallplate transmitters, five DXLink HDMI receiver modules, an ICSLan Serial Interface with two Ports and a pair of ICSLan eight-channel relay interfaces provide the necessary signal HDMI-capable signal distribution required to support events, gathering, conferences and parties in the ballroom. Remote control of the systems can be achieved via the AMX TPC-IPAD touch application panel for mobile devices.
In addition to the control and presentation system, CSA installed an audio reinforcement solution in the ballroom comprising JBL Control 47HC, Control 40CS/T, Control 50Pack, RX725, PRX718XLF, PRX715, and portable EON615 loudspeakers. Powered by a pair of Crown CDI2000 amplifiers, the system also includes a DBX db12 audio processor and takes it sources from a selection of AKG microphones systems including CGN521STS tabletop and WMS470 D5 wireless sets. A Soundcraft Si Expression 3 mixing console provides overall system control.
For lighting, CSA Indonesia also installed Martin Professional fixtures, including Rush MH1 Profile Plus moving heads and Aura Washes. Lighting control is from a Martin M-Play controller.
‘Aston Sentul was looking for a complete and up-to-date audio and visual upgrade that can be controlled easily,’ explained CSA’s Virajith Chandrasekara. ‘We want to provide them with the best audio, automation and lighting products, and our AMX automation solution is the perfect answer to their requirements.’
Following the install, Christian Djoeharnoko, director of sales and marketing for Aston Sentul commented that: ‘CSA and Harman products are famous for their quality and reputation. The overall sound is great.’
