HARMAN Professional Solutions Helps China’s Wanda Vista Hefei Hotel Deliver an Elegant Guest Experience

An integrated HARMAN AV solution provides sophisticated systems control and premium audio performance for five-star hotel staff and visitors

HEFEI, China—The Wanda Vista Hefei, located in Binhu New District of Hefei, China, is a luxury, five-star hotel known for its elegant atmosphere, traditional Huizhou architecture and harmony with “Hui” culture.

In addition to 205 private rooms and suites, the hotel features a lobby, 4,900-square-foot banquet hall, eight conference rooms, restaurants, fitness center, swimming pool and spa. In order to provide audio coverage for such a wide range of areas with different functions, the hotel hired Shenzhen Hongzhe Intelligent Systems Engineering Co., Ltd. to install a complete HARMAN AV solution consisting of JBL Professional speakers, Crown amplifiers, AKG microphones, BSS audio processing and AMX AV systems.

“As a five-star hotel, we strive to maintain an elegant atmosphere, and a portion of that ambience comes from the music that plays throughout the hotel,” said Mr. Chen Xiaojun, Director of AV Operations. “Our audio equipment needs to be top of the line to meet the hotel’s high standards and overcome acoustic challenges created by the traditional architecture. JBL Control Series ceiling speakers are integrated seamlessly into the hotel’s foyer and high lobby ceilings. They are unobtrusive and blend in aesthetically, while providing excellent clarity and pleasing sound quality. We also use JBL EON Series powered speakers when we host events that require portable sound reinforcement.”

The sophisticated HARMAN AV system allows the Hefei Wanda Vista staff to produce a wide range of successful events. An AKG WMS470 wireless microphone system provides smooth and intelligible speech in the grand ballroom and meeting spaces. Utilizing a BSS PDP-DSP public address processor and CobraNet network, audio signals are routed to Crown CTs Series amplifiers and configured to combine (or isolate) the speakers in each room or zone. Operators can discretely make volume adjustments in each meeting space with BSS BLU Series control panels. For convenience, an AMX NX-3200 central control panel enables remote control of all AV equipment using a wireless tablet.

“To uphold our reputation as China’s most prestigious hotel brand, it’s imperative that every guest has a memorable, top-class experience,” related Xiaojun. “When we host high-profile events, such as when Wanda Group recently held their annual shareholder’s meeting in our grand ballroom, it’s important for our AV equipment to consistently deliver the highest quality sound. Thanks to the reliability and flexibility of the integrated HARMAN solution, we can be certain that our AV experience will exceed all expectations.”

The AMX by HARMAN N7142 Presentation Switcher Makes Its U.S. Debut at InfoComm 2017

All-in-one HDMI and VGA presentation switcher simplifies 4K video distribution, enabling AV professionals to instantly deliver ultra high-resolution content over a simple network connection

InfoComm (Booth #3201), ORLANDOHARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today presented the AMX N7142 Presentation Switcherat the 2017 InfoComm show, marking the presentation switcher’s US debut. 
 
As the first all-in-one presentation switcher to incorporate low-latency Networked AV video distribution, the AMX N7142 enables AV and IT teams that support active learning environments to achieve efficient and scalable 4K video distribution for lectures across campus and overflow classroom applications.       

The AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher is incredibly flexible and simple to integrate on campus, allowing educators to reach students faster and more effectively than ever before,” said Andy Whitehead, General Manager Networked AV, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “When presenting to students in overflow classrooms, the AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher can deliver gorgeous 4K video over campus networks in an instant. It will also have an incredible impact on the AV and IT professionals who design and support these systems, and we’re excited for those teams to learn more this week at InfoComm.” 

The N7142 Presentation Switcher features a comprehensive I/O designed to deliver top-quality audio and video in classroom and small conference room applications. The N7142 Presentation Switcher distributes UHD content from the latest 4K sources to most modern displays, with four 4K60 HDMI 2.0 and two VGA inputs that can be independently switched between two HDMI 2.0 outputs. Each output has a mirrored HDMI port for connecting to an additional display, encoder card, or other video distribution equipment. Two available Networked AV slots and an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch make distributing classroom presentations to overflow seating as easy and immediate as a single LAN connection.   

In addition to audio from the HDMI inputs, the all-in-one presentation switcher supports multiple high-quality audio sources with powerful built-in DSP and a 60W stereo amplifier. The N7142 Presentation Switcher includes two microphone inputs with phantom power, as well as six independent stereo inputs that can be used to incorporate different audio sources into presentations, including digital devices like smartphones or tablets.The audio amplifier can also operate in 4Ω/8Ω, 70V, or 100V modes via a user-selectable switch, making it easy to integrate the N7142 Presentation Switcher with existing AV infrastructures.   
      
The N7142 Presentation Switcher features an intuitive web interface that makes it easy to configure, control and use. Instead of requiring an expensive auxiliary control system, educators and presenters can quickly select inputs using straight forward front-panel controls. Because the N7142 Presentation Switcher has Panel Builder on board, the video switcher can be controlled from a mobile device from anywhere in the room without loading an app. 

The AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher is available in two configurations: the NMX-PRS-N7142 and the NMX-PRS-N7142-23, which adds an AMX N2312 Encoder and an AMX N2322 Decoder to the base configuration. Both solutions offer a solid, cost-effective foundation for delivering full-quality UHD content to next-generation active learning environments.

HARMAN Professional Solutions Announces AMX Incite Professional Digital AV Presentation Solutions

All-in-one AV presentation solutions leverage industry-leading technologies by AMX, BSS, dbx and Crown to deliver exceptional video and audio performance in any presentation scenario

InfoComm (Booth #3201), ORLANDO HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today introduced AMX Incite presentation switchers, new professional AV management devices that deliver powerful audio and video capabilities for a wide range of presentation scenarios, including classrooms, conference rooms and more.

Combining industry-leading AMX video technology with BSS, dbx and Crown audio technologies, AMX Incite systems include video scaling, windowing, audio amplification and processing, support for 4K60, integrated central control and distance transport, all at a price point that supports large-scale deployments and price sensitive rooms.

“Universities and corporate facilities with small and medium-sized conference room spaces need unified audiovisual solutions that are easy to purchase, design, install, configure and maintain,” said Shaun Robinson, Vice President, Corporate, Education and Government CSU, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “The new Incite presentation switchers eliminate the need to purchase multiple signal management devices, and provide exceptional value for customers who need a robust and easy-to-use presentation solution. Leveraging industry-leading technologies by AMX, BSS, dbx and Crown, Incite delivers exceptional video and audio performance for any presentation scenario.”

AMX Incite offers the highest quality video switching, scaling and distance transport on the market.

HARMAN Professional Solutions Expands the AMX N1000 Series with New AMX N1134A SDI Encoder

New encoder with native SDI compatibility extends the flexibility of the most economical networked AV solutions on the market

InfoComm (Booth #3201), ORLANDOHARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today introduced the AMX N1134A SDI encoder, a new video over IP encoding solution that eliminates the need for an SDI-to-HDMI converter and makes it easier than ever to integrate an SDI source into any AMX N1000 Networked AV platform. The N1134A streamlines AV setup and allows the award-winning N1000 series Minimal Proprietary Compression codec to transport visually lossless SDI video with sub-frame latency to any N1000 decoder.

“As market adoption of networked AV technology continues to grow, customers expect to be able to stream high quality video data throughout their network without latency issues or a technically involved setup,” said Andy Whitehead, General Manager Networked AV, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “The AMX N1134A takes the excellent encoding and low latency of the N1133 encoder and makes it available with a native SDI input, delivering an accessible and streamlined solution for the integration and transport of broadcast quality live video feeds in meeting spaces, lecture halls or event centers.”

The N1134A encoder integrates well with AMX control systems, it also features AES-67 for easy integration with a variety of audio devices including our own BSS and Crown. And like the other members of the N1000 family of encoders and decoders, PoE power from a simple Ethernet connection to the local network switch both speeds up installation and eliminates the need for a local power source.

N1134A encoders further expand the accessibility of the industry-leading AMX N1000 series, which is the most cost effective Networked AV line on the market and features the lowest level of compression available. And while N1000 is ideal for in-room video distribution and switching applications, it can also effectively scale to as large as 32x32 matrix size.

The N1134A is the latest entry in the largest family of AV-over-IP solutions on the market that allow customers to easily send IP Media for distribution using common managed network switches in any size and configuration with the highest degree of flexibility.
