Science Museum gets Quinta audio conferencing technology

POLARaudio supplies Beyerdynamic's Quinta system for Director's Suite at London’s Science Museum.

POLARaudio supplies Beyerdynamic’s Quinta system for Director’s Suite at London’s Science Museum. The Science Museum is one of the three major museums on London’s Exhibition Road in South Kensington. The museum is a major tourist attraction, attracting three million visitors annually and is world renowned for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions.
 As well as its many exhibits, the museum is also home to researchers from a range of academic disciplines and offers in-house and outreach educational resources for schools and colleges. As an award-winning corporate event venue, The Science Museum offers large- and small-scale facilities for conferences, product launches, meetings and exhibitions. Whilst recently considering improvements to the audio-conferencing provision in its Director’s Suite, it was to be expected that The Science Museum’s authorities would settle for nothing less than the highest quality possible. 
 The Director’s Suite is used for internal board meetings and all major internal conferencing events. In addition, the facility hosts meetings of pre-eminent members of the scientific community as well as offering a facility for discussions involving other museums and galleries. LMC Audio Systems was invited to address the issues at hand, in consultation with POLARaudio – LMC has enjoyed a very successful relationship with the Science Museum for some years.
 LMC opted to specify Beyerdynamic’s Quinta system. Offering three frequency bands, Quinta can silently, seamlessly and automatically switch to an interference-free frequency range should the need arise. There is a high level of wireless encryption associated with the system which provides protection against unauthorised listening. Operation is straightforward and can be configured via smartphone or tablet PC. 
 The hardware installed at The Director’s Suite comprised a Quinta CU Central Control Unit servicing a MU 23 Chairman gooseneck microphone unit and 11 MU 21 Delegate units, as well as attendant chargers and antennae.
