Australian High Commission in Wellington, New Zealand

Jands NZ has installed a networked audio system from Harman Professional Solutions at the Australian High Commission facility in Wellington, New Zealand.

A dedicated event space in the facility allows the Australian High Commission to host numerous events and meetings throughout the year. The event space comprises four individual rooms that can accommodate multiple events simultaneously, or be combined for large events.

The Australian High Commission hired Audio Workshop and Jands NZ to upgrade their sound system with a complete Harman Professional Solutions networked audio system made up of JBL, BSS and AKG solutions. Audio Workshop and Jands NZ relied on a selection of JBL speakers to ensure coverage and clarity in the event space.

JBL CBT 70J-1 column speakers were used to combat the technical problems posed by the atrium’s high ceilings. JBL Control 16C/T in-ceiling loudspeakers are employed for speech intelligibility and music playback in four meeting rooms, while Control 29AV-1 speakers offer additional power and directivity for film and video presentations. Audio Workshop also specified a multi-channel AKG WMS470 wireless microphone system.

The entire system is controlled by a BSS Soundweb London BLU-100 signal processor, which can be configured to function independently in each room, or as a single time-aligned system when the rooms are combined. Finally, BSS Contrio EC-8BV wall controllers enable source selection and volume control in each room.
