Croatia - HUST d.o.o. has completed the design and installation of the audio and video systems for the new Šibenik Convention Centre at the Solaris Beach Resort. Located in Šibenik, on the Adriatic coast, the new venue is the first convention centre to be built since the independence of the Croatian state in 1991 and is now the largest in Croatia.
The centre is designed for flexibility, by dividing or combining rooms to adapt the space for all types of events, conventions and exhibitions. With a total of 4,000sq.m of congress space, the centre encompasses 11 individual halls and rooms with an overall capacity for 2,500 people.
In the design of the audio system, HUST added flexibility to the venue with zoning that could easily be switched and combined to match the space configuration used by any event. They chose a combination of distributed Apart loudspeakers for background music and Community loudspeakers for AV and conferencing.
The central space is the main hall. With its movable stage, the main hall holds 1,500 people in theatre mode, 1,000 with banquet facilities and 1,365 in ‘cocktail’ format.
The hall can be configured as a single room or as three independently operating rooms, each with its own motorised screen and Epson projector.
Each of the three independent rooms has a distributed audio system comprising eight Community two-way D8 ceiling loudspeakers, with D10SUB ceiling-mount subwoofers adding extended response and low frequency impact. An additional pair of V2-8 8” compact full-range two-way loudspeakers is used to focus the sound on the screen. When the hall is used as a single room, the individual sound systems combine into one.
To provide system control, HUST installed a Biamp TesiraFORTÉ, with the Tesira TEC-1s Ethernet control unit and multiple PCs providing a simple, intuitive interface. Each operator’s user name and password sets their authorised level of control. Apart REVAMP amplifiers provide the power for the loudspeakers throughout the complex.
“Šibenik Convention Centre is a very prestigious new venue for Croatia,” comments Tomislav Stubičan of HUST. “We are very pleased to have provided it with a sound system that is a combination of exceptional quality, versatility and modern design.”
