AMX by HARMAN Extends Industry Lead with World’s First 4K60 4:4:4 Video over IP Windowing Processor

Latest Windowing Processor Offers 4x1 Windowing for Industry-Leading N2400 Series Networked AV Solution

ISE (Stand #1-F10) – AMSTERDAM – HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in networked AV, today introduced the new AMX N2400 Series Windowing Processor, a network-based windowing processor that supports 4x1 windowing for the industry-leading AMX N2400 Series video over IP solution.

This latest entry in HARMAN’s line of networked AV windowing processors is capable of handling multiple real-time 4K60 streams with no video input or output connectors, greatly simplifying installation in network operations centers, basic digital signage applications and more.

HARMAN’s 10 years of leadership in enterprise-grade networked AV has led to the industry’s broadest range of networked AV solutions, with a variety of formats available as well as a number of network-based accessories, including audio transceivers, network video recorders, networked control devices and windowing processors. This allows HARMAN to provide the capabilities needed for any networked AV application. The AMX N2400 Series Windowing Processor further extends that lead, while bringing the industry’s first video over IP 4K60 4:4:4 windowing and video tiling solution.

The AMX N2400 Series Windowing Processor accepts up to four multicast video streams from AMX N2400 Series encoders at resolutions up to 4K60 4:4:4. Users can mix 4K and HD sources in any configuration, including the ability to combine up to four HD sources together into a single 4K image. Each input can be cropped, scaled, and positioned according to stored presets (such as quad, window-in-window, 3+1, etc.) or in any user-defined configuration. The combined output video is then streamed to one or more N2400 Series Decoders.

Like the entire N2400 Series solution, the new windowing processor includes robust security capabilities, including user authentication, encryption, network service security and more. This provides IT professionals the confidence to implement N2400 Series solutions in any network environment.

“The new AMX N2400 Series Windowing Processors open up networked AV to a number of exciting applications, which is ultimately the goal with our networked AV portfolio,” says Shaun Robinson, VP, Corporate, Education and Government Customer Solutions for HARMAN Professional Solutions. “We meet the needs of our customers no matter the application, distance, network configuration or security posture, all while leveraging the full capabilities of the network. That’s only possible thanks to HARMAN’s continuing leadership in networked AV technology.”

HARMAN Professional Solutions Provides a Luxurious AV Experience at the AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel

Mahajak Development selects an integrated HARMAN AV audio solution for its advanced networking, intuitive operation and premium sound quality  

BANGKOK—Mahajak Development Co., Ltd. recently installed a complete HARMAN networked AV audio solution at AVANI Riverside Bangkok, an award-winning luxury hotel overlooking the Chao Phraya River.

In addition to 245 guest rooms and suites, the hotel features a lobby, grand ballroom, five conference rooms, multiple restaurants and a rooftop swimming pool. In order to provide audio coverage and networked AV for a wide range of specialized areas and environments, hotel owner Minor International hired Mahajak Development to install a complete HARMAN AV audio solution. It consisted of JBL Professional speakers, Crown amplifiers, BSS signal processors, Soundcraft audio mixers and AMX networked AV systems.

“We asked Mahajak Development to provide us with robust AV solutions to accommodate a spectrum of events and functions,” said Pakpoom Worakamolkul, Senior Engineering Manager, Minor International. “Thanks to the variety of speaker types and sizes in the JBL Control Series line, Mahajak was able to customize the solution in each different environment to deliver maximum coverage and intelligibility. The colors and grills of the speakers blend in with their surroundings perfectly. Furthermore, the HARMAN AV systems in our grand ballroom and meeting spaces are very flexible and easily optimized for different types of events.”  

The HARMAN AV system allows the AVANI Riverside Bangkok staff to produce weddings, business conferences, private parties and more. In the grand ballroom, JBL Control Series speakers are complemented by JBL EON Series powered speakers and JBL STX818S subwoofers for enhanced volume and bass response. The entire system is powered by Crown CTs Series, XLi Series and XTi 2 Series amplifiers.

Versatile and compact Soundcraft MFXi audio mixers enable staff and guest DJs to quickly craft professional mixes. BSS Soundweb London devices offer advanced routing and signal processing, while BSS BLU control panels make it easy for non-technical staff members to adjust the sophisticated AV system. AMX IS-SPX-1300 players are used to program digital signage panels located outside each event space, which indicate the current booking. Finally, an AMX ENOVA digital media switcher forms the “backbone” of the networked AV systems in the banquet spaces, enabling seamless audio playback and signal switching.

“AVANI Riverside Bangkok is very happy with the networked HARMAN AV system we installed,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director, Mahajak Development. “It was a challenge to design a large-scale system that fulfilled all of the technical requirements. Thanks to HARMAN’s never-ending inventory of professional solutions, we were able to provide the hotel with the AV system of their dreams.”

HARMAN Professional Solutions Delivers a World-Class Audio and Visual Experience at Cornerstone

Integrator Brad Schield installs a complete HARMAN audio and lighting solution to provide exceptional sound quality, flexibility and ease-of use for a broad range of performances

BERKELEY, Calif.—Brad C. Schield and Associates (BSA) recently designed and installed a complete audio and lighting system by HARMAN Professional Solutions in Cornerstone, a newly opened live music venue, restaurant and beer garden in Berkeley.

Cornerstone hosts performances by local bands, tribute acts and national touring artists, including The Offspring, Jefferson Starship, Third Eye Blind, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, and many more. In order to deliver an exceptional audio and visual experience for both music fans and artists, Cornerstone owner Alex Popov hired BSA to install a cutting-edge networked audio and lighting system for the 600-capacity venue.  BSA selected a complete networked HARMAN audio and lighting solution made up of JBL Professional speakers, Crown amplifiers, AKG microphones, Soundcraft consoles, BSS and AMX audio video control systems and Martin lighting fixtures for their professional performance, seamless integration and intuitive operation.

“HARMAN is an industry leader in innovative audio technology,” said Brad Schield. “They can provide me with a complete solution from microphones and mixers to speakers and amps, and it all works together seamlessly. I know I can shop one source, and there’s not going to be a weak link in the chain. HARMAN has been doing this longer than anyone—it’s an integrator’s dream.”

The audio system includes a main hang of 18 JBL VT4886 line array speakers, 6 JBL VT4883 subwoofers in the air, 4 JBL STX828S subwoofers built into the stage, and JBL SRX Series powered speakers for stage monitors. JBL SCS8 speakers deliver full-range audio inside the restaurant, while JBL AWC82 and JBL SB2210 speakers are installed in the beer garden. The entire system is powered by Crown I-Tech Series amplifiers and optimized by JBL V5 speaker presets. The system also includes a comprehensive collection of AKG microphones to handle any live sound scenario. To ensure maximum audio coverage in 13,000 square feet of venue space, BSA used JBL VERTEC Line Array Calculator II software to meticulously map out speaker placement and arrangement.

Plus Four Marketing commissioned, supplied and tuned the HARMAN system at Cornerstone. By using a single distributor and a complete HARMAN solution, BSA was able to streamline the installation process and complete the project quickly and efficiently.

“The HARMAN system installed at Cornerstone was near-perfect right out of the gate and needed very little EQ adjustment,” said Keith Erickson, Tour Sound & Large Venue Specialist at Plus Four Marketing. “The Soundcraft consoles are set up with preset recalls that allow audio to flow from either side of the venue. The audio is also synced with an AMX video system. The entire system is networked via Dante, without copper cable. It makes it very easy for the owner to operate the system. Plus, Alex was also able to use HARMAN's Finance program, which allowed to him to purchase all of the equipment he needed at one time. This made the installation much more streamlined and efficient.”

Soundcraft Vi2000 and Si Performer digital live mixing consoles not only provide unparalleled mixing power, they can be linked together via built-in Dante and BLU link interfaces to enable easy multi-track recording and flexible network routing options. Utilizing the Dante network and a BSS BLU link-equipped eight-channel Crown DC-I amplifier, audio can be routed to eight different zones throughout the restaurant and outdoor beer garden. The Dante network allows audio to be sourced from multiple locations in the facility. Separate shows can take place simultaneously in the venue and beer garden, or audio from the main venue can be routed to restaurant and outdoor patio, allowing guests to listen to the live performance from anywhere in the facility.

BSA also installed a lighting rig, consisting of 13 Martin RUSH MH6 CT and 4 Martin MH7 Hybrid fixtures. Controlled by Martin M-PC software, the lighting rig has more than enough flexibility for local acts and serves as a great foundation for touring acts that bring their own lighting package.

“We have the flexibility to provide a complete audio experience in every area of our space,” said Popov. “The audio systems work together seamlessly. When we were researching the sound system, we travelled to different venues around the country. I can’t think of a single place we visited that sounds better than the HARMAN system we have at Cornerstone. When The Offspring played here, they told us how great the room sounded. They’ve played some of the biggest and best venues in the world, so that was major validation of the HARMAN system. It was a great experience.”

HARMAN Professional Solutions Helps Aston Sentul Lake Resort and Conference Center Offer Guests an Unforgettable Visit

CSA Indonesia deploys an end-to-end HARMAN AV solution that delivers a refined guest experience for conferences and weddings at the stunning Indonesian lake resort

SENTUL CITY, Indonesia—Located on a scenic lake in the flourishing community of Sentul City, the four-star Aston Sentul Lake Resort and Conference Center offers guests an unforgettable stay with breathtaking views of mountains from lakefront property. In addition to 212 guest rooms and eight villas, the hotel also features 11 state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a ballroom that accommodates up to 900 attendees. To provide guests with an AV experience that matches the splendor of the rest of the property, the owners hired CSA Indonesia to update the grand ballroom with a complete end-to-end HARMAN AV solution.

“As the crown jewel of our hotel, the ballroom needed an AV system of the highest quality,” said Christian Djoeharnoko, Director of Sales & Marketing, Aston Sentul. “We also wanted to implement a seamless control system that would allow our staff to easily make AV adjustments. Knowing HARMAN’s reputation for excellence across all its product brands, we had faith in CSA’s choice to install a complete HARMAN AV solution.”

With large-scale urban development plans in the works, Sentul City is set to become a prime travel destination in the near future. Aston Sentul Lake Resort and Conference Center is already seeing increased business because of the boom, and is quickly becoming a popular choice to hold conferences, meetings and events.

“Aston Sentul Lake Resort and Conference Center is one of the largest hotels this side of Jakarta, and management wanted to improve the AV experience for guests who attend events hosted in the grand ballroom,” said Setiawan Winarto, CEO of CSA Indonesia. “To help them achieve this goal, we installed a fully integrated HARMAN solution, consisting of JBL Professional speakers, Crown amplifiers and an AMX control system. The hotel management team was very impressed with the system we installed. In fact, they were so pleased, they requested that we also provide a lighting solution, which we fulfilled with Martin fixtures.”

The main ballroom, which can also be partitioned into three separate meeting spaces, is outfitted with JBL Control 40 Series ceiling speakers and powered by Crown CDi series amplifiers. Featuring a narrow 75-degree coverage pattern that minimizes reflections from the wall and phase differences between adjacent speakers, the JBL Control 47HC delivers superior speech intelligibility in highly reverberant high-ceiling applications. JBL PRX and JBL EON active speakers are utilized when the hotel requires more powerful sound reinforcement. Martin RUSH MH1 Profile Plus and Martin MAC Aura Wash fixtures provide flexible and colorful lighting to perfectly suit the mood of any event.

A sophisticated control system featuring AMX Enova DGX800-ENC digital media switchers and an AMX NX-4200 / NetLinx® NX Integrated Controller is integrated with TP Control software, enabling staff to control all aspects of the AV equipment in the hotel’s meeting spaces with just a tablet and the touch of a finger. The convenience factor is augmented by the AMX Enzo platform—a flexible meeting presentation system that allows guests and presenters to share and collaborate on documents and photos stored on their personal device. 

“We’re happy to see our products help Aston Sentul Lake Resort and Conference Center deliver an unforgettable experience to their guests,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, Asia Pacific. “We are confident that their investment will ensure successful business with new and returning clients.”
