BAR & PRESENTATION SPACE
Rapallo were contacted by the venue as they had aging audio and visual technology and were wanting an upgrade to make the existing 5 zones to work together and use streaming services.
The venue consisted of 5 zones (bar x 2 / outdoor / movies / presentation room). It required a system that could pull all that together and offer multiple content types across multiple zones. The overriding request from the client was it had to be easy to use and provide better sound (esp in the bar and outdoor areas) using streaming services such as Spotify. Our team had to work with the existing infrastructure and cabling as access to the roof cavities wasn’t available to re-cable or change leads or location of cabling.
The team at Rapallo deployed a Yamaha based platform using four differing types of AVR’s that were linked to MusicCast controllers situated in 3 places in the venue. This allows 5 zones of sound (with over 22 speakers & two projectors), or a mixture of sound in some zones and visual presentation content in others, all controlled from the wall based tablets throughout the venue.
- Back Bar – streaming sound + controller
- Main Bar – streaming sound + controller
- Outdoor – streaming sound
- Movies – streaming sound or content from Apple TV / ChromeCast
- Conference / Ceremony Room – streaming sound or content from Apple TV / Chromecast / Computer + controller
