Austria - Located close to The Graben, one of Vienna’s most famous streets, renowned architect Matteo Thun created the design and atmosphere of Bar Campari, Campari Austria’s flagship location. An Alcons Audio pro-ribbon system delivers the audio.
Bar Campari is owned by Peter Friese, of Vienna’s Zum Schwarzen Kameel (The Black Camel), one of the city’s highest profile restaurants.
The owners contacted Wolfgang Sauter, founder of Vienna-based systems integrator Pro Performance, with a brief for an audio system that had to deliver quality sound, performance and reliability. It also had to blend in with Bar Campari’s décor, which is based on the lively aesthetics of Italian cafés and the graphics designed by futurist artist Fortunato Depero for Campari in the first half of the 20th century.
As well as sound quality, containment was also important, as there are strict laws in Vienna regarding maximum sound levels, especially in the city centre. The Alcons VR5 pro-ribbon mini monitor was chosen for Bar Campari, the RBN202 pro-ribbon HF driver delivering intelligibility and dynamic output, while the horizontal and patent-pending vertical dispersion ensured very accurate coverage.
Nine single 5” VR5 monitors were mounted on custom-made brackets, with an Alcons 4x2.5kW Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controller chosen to manage the system.
“Planning, quotation, execution and the result convinced us that we found the right sound partner,” says Peter. “This audio system has allowed Bar Campari to enhance the high-quality ambience we offer, helping us to positively influence the mood of our guests. We would recommend Pro Performance and Alcons Audio for the perfect acoustic and visual solution.”
