The Grand Plaza Mövenpick Media City is one of Dubai’s premium hotels and, thanks to a bespoke Yamaha audio installation, guests who use several of its key facilities enjoy a high quality, flexible audio experience.
Located next to Dubai’s Media and Internet City hub, the Grand Plaza Mövenpick Media City hotel features 235 rooms and suites, five restaurants/bars, a 1150m2 state of the art convention centre (including 800m2 Grand Ballroom), meeting rooms, rooftop lounge, gym, spa and swimming pool.
Systems integrator Telematics was asked to install audio systems in the Grand Ballroom, spa/gym and five meeting rooms, delivering quality audio to match the hotel’s facilities and décor. Supplied by Thomsun Trading, one of Dubai’s leading distributors of musical instruments, A/V and broadcast equipment, the exceptional sound of the VXC series ceiling speakers was one of the reasons for choosing a Yamaha solution.
The Grand Ballroom is mainly used for corporate events and weddings. For maximum flexibility, it can be divided into two or three smaller spaces, so an adaptable audio system was needed. Here 22 VXC8 ceiling speakers were installed - in two groups of eight and one of six for the three zones - powered by three XMV4280 amplifiers. An MRX7-D signal processor was installed to manage the system, with an MY8-ADDA96 interface card, plus EXi8 and EXo8 input/output expanders. A DCP4V4S digital control panel was installed to help staff easily control the system.
