Mahajak upgrades Bangkok hotel
THAILAND: The A/V system at the three-star Ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai hotel has been upgraded as part of an eight-month renovation project designed by Sura Pratanang from WPS Consultant Co. Local systems integrator Mahajak was tasked with carrying out the updates throughout the hotel, while also upgrading the video products used in its ballroom and two meeting rooms.
‘The customer was looking for a high-quality audio system for inside the hotel,’ recalled Mahajak project sales engineer Tanakorn Amprirom. ‘We met the customer in order to present the A/V system design and our works in the past. Harman products were used here because Harman has a diverse range of products, including mixers, amplifiers and loudspeakers.’
Ceiling speakers from the JBL catalogue have been installed throughout the first floor, covering the dining room, lounge and bakery, swimming pool, drop-off area, lobby and corridors. BSS Soundweb Contrio EC-V wall controllers accompany these. The speakers in the swimming pool include water-resistant MTC-25WMG WeatherMax grilles. A Crown CDi 1000 amplifier has been set up in the drop-off area.
Up on the second floor, the fitness centre has been equipped with four JBL Control 16C/T ceiling speakers and an EC-V control unit, while three Control 24CT Micros serve a pre-function space. Meeting room one is reinforced with six Control 14C/Ts, powered by a Crown CDi 1000 and controlled from a Soundcraft Signature 10 analogue mixer. Meeting room two on the other hand features a four Control 14C/Ts speakers with control and power offered by a JBL CSMA 1120 mixer/amplifier.
The meeting rooms and seventh floor ballroom have also been treated to conferencing solutions, including Shure SLX24/SM58 handheld wireless systems, SLX14/SM35 wireless headset microphone systems and SRH240 A headphones. The ballroom has also been fitted with JBL Control 16C/T ceiling speakers, a Crown CDi 1000 amplifier and a Soundcraft SI Impact digital mixing console.
