Tehran-based systems integrator, Electrovision, was recently selected to design and install the A/V and lighting systems for the auditorium and conference hall of Shahid Tondguyan oil refinery, one of Iran’s largest refining centres. The project comprised a 566-seat multi-use auditorium and a 59-seat conference hall.
‘Considering the expansive range of possible uses of this project we performed accurate sound and light calculations and installed a combination of high quality and professional A/V and lighting systems,’ said Majid Mahdavian, CEO of Electrovision. ‘Our architects also designed a nice and efficient concept considering acoustic principles for this project.’
In the main auditorium a Midas Venice 320 sound mixer controls the speaker system with inputs via beyerdynamic GM 315 s dynamic mics amongst other sources. The visual system calls on a Panasonic PT-EX16k projector, a Datavideo SE-700 video switcher and Sony BR-Z330 cameras. In addition to this, the signal chain includes a Sony RM-BR300 controller and Datavideo TLM-404 and TLM-702 SD TFT LCD monitors. Completing the technical setup in the main auditorium is the lighting solution. This draws on products from Teclumen, Curva and Ribalta.
The conference room solution was built around beyerdynamic’s Revoluto technology with MCS-D3173 and MCS-D3171 chairman and delegate conference units called into action. The system has been expanded with the German manufacturer’s MCS-D200 main control unit and MCS-D202 interpreter console for simultaneous translation into four languages.
The video solution for the conference room drew heavily from the Panasonic and Datavideo catalogues. Panasonic wv-cs950 cameras capture the image which goes through the Datavideo SE-500 switcher for output by the Panasonic projector. The footage can also be recorded and archived thanks to a Panasonic DVD recorder.
‘Our firm belief is that a project is not just an installation,’ offered Electrovision project manager, Ali Rezaei. ‘We provide our customers with as much training and support as we can and we assure them that after finishing the project they can count on our technical assistance and after sales services. The result is always fantastic.’
‘For me this project was very special because of the level of technical skill required and obligation to the whole work process,’ concluded Mr Mahdavian. ‘It’s an honour that we have successfully completed such an important project with full customer satisfaction.’
