Thai Defense Ministry equips office with HARMAN Professional AV systems
The Office of the Permanent Secretary for Defense recently upgraded its headquarters with state-of-the-art HARMAN Professional Solutions AV, lighting and control systems. To achieve sound reinforcement in multiple room configurations, the they installed a range of JBL loudspeakers in the main hall. When the hall is divided, JBL AM7215 speakers serve the larger half, while AM7212 models serve the smaller half. The speakers can be combined for maximum coverage across the entire hall, and the entire system is augmented by STX828S subwoofers. JBL PRX800-Series monitors are selected for onstage. JBL Control 328CT ceiling loudspeakers provide additional coverage outside the hall. Crown XTi 2 Series and CDi 1000 amplifiers power the sound system. Two Soundcraft Si Expression 3 digital mixing consoles were installed. Networked together via a BSS Soundweb London BLU-100 signal processor, the two consoles can easily be configured to function independently or together, depending on the room configuration. To illuminate the stage efficiently, the Office of the Permanent Secretary deployed energy-saving Martin MAC Quantum Series LED lighting fixtures. The MAC Quantum Profile serves as a main spotlight, while the MAC Quantum Wash provides rich, even washes of color. The hall also features 350- and 300-inch screens as well as 4K HMDI projectors equipped with projector lifts for accurate positioning and stowing when not in use. To control the integrated AV and lighting systems, the facility is equipped with AMX touch panels. The control room, located next to the stage, features a 4.3- inch AMX wall mount touch panel, while the facility’s main meeting room features a 9.7- inch panel.
