Symetrix DSPs deliver audio processing for Austrian hospital2 February 2015
Landesklinikum Amstetten, a hospital complex 100km from Vienna, recently initiated an audio processing overhaul.
A long-term AV collaborator of the hospital, St. Leonhard am Forst-based Schneider Audio Concept Vertriebs GmbH (SAC) was tasked with devising a powerful but easily-operable audio processing and distribution infrastructure to cover two wings (one new, one legacy) and several seminar rooms, as well as provide monitoring and control of the EVAC and paging systems.
“We have been working as a distributor for Symetrix for about seven years now, and the company’s Dante-capable DSPs have found their way into all manner of projects,” said SAC principal Christian Muhm. “In this case, I selected two SymNet Radius AEC units and one SymNet Edge, along with a single SymNet xIn 12 expander, all connected via fibre. Collectively, the Symetrix products enable the delivery of background music for the wards, monitor the EVAC/paging system, manage the seminar room audio, and undertake room combining functions as required.”
The compact but powerful set-up allows audio and data signals to be delivered anywhere in any configuration. SAC also provided Dynacord loudspeakers and amplifiers as well as beyerdynamic wireless microphones.
