2013 Strzelce Opolskie
Nowadays you can perform various tasks using just one audiovisual system. However, back in 2013 it was not a common idea. Despite this our client requested a solution to managenot only conferences, meetings and trainings, but also theatre performances and concerts. We dealt with such a challenge in the same year, when we started to design a system to be installed in an old, run-down CASINO building in Strzelce Opolskie (South of Poland).
The installation was to give users the greatest functionality managed from a single location, inan all-in-one facility with a museum, conference centre, stage and media library. We had to consider a variety of users and their individual needs when utilising the audio-visual system.
The Casino building project included a design and implementation of :
• collection protection system
• exhibition rooms with lighting
• multifunctional conference and concert hall
• intercom communication system.
• media library.
• central control system.
Signal distribution is based on the modern DigitalMedia solution by Crestron, where all audiovisual and control signals are sent through a single twisted pair cable. In this way, we eliminated unnecessary wiring in the function space. The whole audio-visual system, in bothcinema and stage modes, can be controlled in a traditional way, or from a wireless touch panel or a wall-mounted panel.
We have used the highest quality sound and stage lighting systems, so that the audience can enjoy a great sound and atmosphere of presentations and performances. Appropriately selected devices help the performers and speakers deliver their acts without technical challenges, which has a positive impact on the comfort of the venue staff as well.
In the Remembrance and Tradition halls we designed kiosks and multimedia stands, enabling dynamic change of content, depending on the theme of the current temporary exhibition.
The media library provides visitors with local resources and gives them the opportunity to use the works shared by other libraries – this increased access to knowledge is possible thanks to modern technology, IT network and communication devices
An old Polish saying goes “if something is good for everything, it is good for nothing”. As it turns out, we have proved it wrong. Since 2013 this multi-purpose facility has been hosting conferences, concerts, small theatre performances, theatre and music rehearsals local residents meetings with representatives of local authorities, film screenings, banquets and balls. Visitors, tourists and local community can use the media library to enjoy music, film and literature on their own.
Shortly speaking: “If something is good for everything, then the A+V team must have been involved”.
