BCL Communications has completed the turnkey installation of a broadcast and communications network at Dubai's new Four Seasons Al Badia Golf Club.
The system, which is based on US company's Biamp AudiaFLEX CM module, boasts advanced audio distribution and covers more than 52 separate zones within the facility.
"With control over Ethernet via integration with the third-party control system and the AudiaFLEX network-friendly design architecture, we were able to create a single IP network incorporating audio distribution and paging with touchscreen control that also covers lighting and system monitoring," explained a BCL representative. "For audio distribution we have eight AudiaFLEX CM units located in separate rack rooms, but working together with convenient control points throughout the facilities.
"The seamless integration of Audia with the control system allowed us to provide control luxuries that wouldn't have been possible with another system configuration. For instance, we have touchscreen controllers in the VIP lounges that Al Badia guests can use to control the volume of certain audio sources. Yet we didn't need to add any additional components to do this."
BCL also created a paging system based on the AudiaFLEX processors providing paging capabilities at each of the starter huts.
The AudiaFLEX is also a part of the club's broadcast network installed by BCL. This allows club operators to route audio signals through the AudiaFLEX and down to the venue's broadcast truck dock.
