Thailand - To elevate experiences of its meeting spaces, the Metropolitan Electricity Authority in Bangkok collaborated with Mahajak Development Co to install Harman Professional Solutions networked AV and lighting solutions.
Established in 1958, the Metropolitan Electricity Authority is a state-run electricity and power provider that services Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samut Prakan. The facilities span across three towers and include a convention centre, an auditorium, a food centre, nursing home, an exhibition hall and multiple office spaces. To commemorate the enterprise’s 61st anniversary, Metropolitan Electricity Authority hired Mahajak to install networked AV and lighting systems throughout the facilities.
“The client wanted sophisticated AV and lighting solutions to support their meeting rooms, offices and convention centres,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, director of project, Mahajak Development Co. “We selected end-to-end AMX systems, as they support a wide range of distribution formats and applications, regardless of the distance between source and destination. We chose Martin lighting fixtures for their ability to create stunning visual displays without causing glare.”
To enable digital voting during meetings, Mahajak equipped the MOC meeting room with an AMX networked AV system, which can be controlled using AMX NX series and MKP series control panels or an AMX TPC-iPad wireless control system. Sound is routed through a Soundcraft Signature Series mixing console and distributed to JBL Control series ceiling loudspeakers via BSS BLU series processors. For the visual system, an AMX Enova DGX800-ENC digital media switcher is used to manage video feeds.
The committee room with 50 seats has an audio system similar to the MOC Room. This room is for executive meetings and enabled with easy to use arrangements faciliated by 24” embed monitors installed with monitor lifts. There is a continuous screen helping the audiences to see the presentation at eye level. The 164” motorized screem and 5,000 ANSI lumens projector are provided with Digital Matrix 8 * 8 AMX DGX800-ENC with video card. The control system used AMX NX Series together with AMX/TPC-iPad wireless control system to control all equipment. Mahajak installed a similar audio system in the Governor meeting room.
To enable staff to monitor AV systems throughout the facilities, Mahajak leveraged AMX Resource Management Suite (RMS) Enterprise software. For seamless streaming between devices, Mahajak installed AMX SVSI N2000 series encoders and decoders. This future-proof system comprised of the latest HARMAN products makes it easy to integrate additional products or upgrade in the future.
The auditorium, being the heart of meeting rooms, is designed like a cinema theatre. JBL line array loudspeakers were installed to provide clear, detailed sound throughout the venue while supporting multi-functional operation. JBL VerTec series loudspeakers and subwoofers are mounted together with JBL AC series and JBL ASB series loudspeakers to provide powerful sound. Mahajak selected JBL PRX series loudspeakers as floor monitors, enabling performers to hear themselves on stage.
For visual media in the auditorium, Mahajak installed an AMX HDBaseT system along with an AMX DGX800-ENC digital media switcher.
In the Seminar rooms, a Soundcraft Si Performer series mixing console enables the space to be used as a multipurpose venue. JBL CBT series column loudspeakers deliver even, balanced coverage in the Split room, while JBL VRX series line array loudspeakers and STX series subwoofers deliver class-leading sound quality in the Merged room.
"Large-scale, multipurpose venues like the Metropolitan Electricity Authority require advanced AV systems to deliver clear sound and visuals," said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM Harman Professional Solutions, APAC. "Harman would like to thank our partner Mahajak Development Co., Ltd for leveraging our industry-leading experience in delivering enterprise-level solutions at a government facility and for creating a powerful AV solution that helps elevate the experience of the officials and visitors."
