Indonesian Court Museum selects Symetrix SymNet Edge22 April 2014
A DSP solution from Symetrix is providing powerful processing and Audinate Dante audio networking support for one of Central Jakarta’s leading tourist destinations, the Museum of Indonesia’s Constitutional Court (MKRI).
The museum explains to visitors how the country gained its independence following the Second World War. A new audio upgrade was required to drive audio to 32 zones for the museum’s different exhibition areas.
Indonesian audio supplier and consultant, Pt Gracia Auvindo, made the selection of the SymNet Edge open-architecture scalable DSP and related xIn 12 and xOut 12 expansion boxes. The high channel count and low latency of Audinate’s Dante media networking solution were key factors in the decision to implement the system.
The final design comprises a SymNet Edge DSP configured with a pair of four-channel analogue input cards and a further pair of four-channel analogue output cards, along with two units apiece of SymNet’s xIn 12 and xOut 12 expansion boxes. The system provides audio processing for 32 zones – each of which has touch-screens fed from locally-installed PCs – as well as capability for override paging and announcements through an Audix ADX-18 gooseneck microphone.
Operators control the system via an ARC-2e wall-panel in the main equipment rack and also though the Symetrix ARC-WEB app loaded onto the museum staff’s smartphones. The exhibit sound is covered by a number of Ecler IC8 8in ceiling loudspeakers, reinforced by a Coda Audio K5 high-SPL system for the larger attractions. Another zone benefits from surround sound and has been outfitted with 5in coaxial D-Tube speakers and a PW112a self-powered subwoofer.
