HARMAN Professional Solutions Delivers Four-Star Audio at Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar

ITC Solutions deploys solutions by JBL, Crown, Soundcraft, dbx and AKG to provide world-class sound in lobby, lounge, event spaces and more

ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA — ITC Solutions installed a complete audio system by HARMAN Professional Solutions at Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar.

The newly opened four-star hotel is the first property in Mongolia to satisfy the IHG “Green Engage” standard of sustainability. In addition to 170 rooms and 13 suites, the 20-story hotel features a lobby, SkyView Lounge, large ballroom and six conference rooms. In order to deliver a world-class audio experience to its guests, Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar hired ITC Solutions to install an end-to-end HARMAN audio solution made up of solutions by JBL, Crown, Soundcraft, dbx and AKG.   

“HARMAN Professional Solutions is privileged to be a part of Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “We’re thrilled to see our solutions integrated in the first and only IHG “Green Engage” hotel in Mongolia. Holiday Inn staff and guests benefit from the quality and robustness of a HARMAN system. We thank our partner ITC Solutions for their faith in HARMAN and dedication to customer service.”

ITC Solutions faced a major challenge during the installation—building construction had begun before the audio system was designed. Fortunately, HARMAN offered a comprehensive variety of flexible solutions to accommodate the different reinforcement needs and acoustic environments within the hotel. The system ITC Solutions installed at Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar consists of JBL loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, Soundcraft mixers, dbx signal processors and AKG microphones, and enables the staff to produce a wide range of successful events.

JBL 8214 and 8128 in-ceiling loudspeakers discretely deliver elegant music throughout the lobby, Skyview Lounge and other public areas at Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar. JBL Control HST wall-mount speakers’ patent-pending design eliminates room reflections and provides a flat frequency response and consistent sonic character throughout the hotel. The systems in the ballroom and conference rooms consist of JBL VRX932LA line array speakers and VRX918S subwoofers, delivering concert-worthy sound in a compact and efficient package. JBL PRX412M portable speakers provide versatility by functioning as stage monitors, conference room PAs or miscellaneous applications—depending on the event requirements. The entire system is powered by Crown XTi Series amplifiers, and optimized using a dbx DriveRack 4820 loudspeaker management system.

Events held in the hotel’s ballroom benefit from AKG CGN521 STS condenser gooseneck microphones, which include a control switch for mute, on/off, high pass filter and other functions—perfect for conference tables and podiums alike. When an event features musical entertainment, AKG D5 dynamic vocal microphones deliver crisp, dynamic live vocals with high feedback suppression. AKG WMS470 handheld/lavalier microphone sets provide the hotel AV staff with versatile wireless capabilities and convenient flexibility to handle any speech reinforcements.

A powerful and transparent audio mix is essential to the success of events at Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar. A Soundcraft Si Expression Series digital mixing console offers extensive features and legendary sound quality in the ballroom, while Soundcraft EFX8 compact mixers enable intuitive control of microphone and playback levels during meetings in the conference rooms.

HANOI, VIETNAM—Ba Sao Investment recently installed a complete audio system by HARMAN Professional Solutions at the Vietnam National Puppetry Theatre.

Since 1956, the Vietnam National Puppetry Theatre has preserved the uniquely Vietnamese art of water puppetry, hosting multiple performances per week. Considered a cultural highlight in northern Vietnam, these shows combine dramatic performances by skilled puppeteers with accompaniments by a traditional Vietnamese orchestra. In order to enhance the performances and ensure superb audio quality for audiences, the National Puppetry Theatre hired Ba Sao Investment to upgrade its aging audio system with a complete end-to-end HARMAN audio solution.

“One of the main objectives was to seamlessly integrate the new sound system with our existing equipment,” said Trịnh Đình Tân, Technical Manager, Vietnam National Puppetry Theatre. “It was also necessary to implement an outdoor-friendly solution that would be easy to set up and operate. The HARMAN system installed by Ba Sao Investment met all these requirements, delivering an audio experience worthy of the prestige our show is known for.”

The HARMAN sound system Ba Sao Investment installed in the National Puppetry Theatre includes JBL VT4886 line array speakers and VT4883 subwoofers, JBL PRX412M 12-inch portable speakers, JBL AWC129 weather-resistant speakers, JBL AC 25 ultra-compact speakers, Crown DSi2000 power amplifiers, dbx iEQ-31 equalizer/limiters, a Lexicon PCM92 digital effects processor and a Soundcraft GB8 series mixing console.

“We rely on HARMAN Professional Solutions to provide quality products for all of our installation needs,” said Nguyen Khac Anh, CEO, Ba Sao Investment Co. Ltd. “The National Puppetry Theatre wanted to make sure the audio solution would be easily integrated with their existing system. Thanks to the versatility of HARMAN products, they are very happy with the system we provided.”  

Ba Sao Investment designed the audio solution around JBL VerTec series line array speakers and subwoofers, which offer excellent performance and coverage in a compact footprint. PRX412M portable speakers provide clear and precise stage monitoring, while JBL AC25 ultra-compact speakers offer high output and 90° x 90° coverage. JBL AWC129 full-range speakers are highly weather-resistant and satisfy the theater’s outdoor use requirements.

The entire system is driven by Crown DSi 2000 amplifiers, which deliver unmatched sound quality and reliability. To ensure maximum sonic performance from the system, dbx iEQ31 graphic EQ/limiters offer 31-band equalization, AFS™ feedback suppression, Type V™ noise reduction and PeakStopPlus® limiting. The Lexicon PCM92 is the most advanced reverb and effects processor in its class and lends its famously rich and smooth sound to the productions. Finally, a Soundcraft GB8 dual-mode topology audio mixer brings industry-standard mixing control to each performance.

“We are honored to be a part of the unique traditions of Vietnamese puppetry art performance,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “We thank the National Puppetry Theatre for trusting HARMAN products to improve its audience experience, and Ba Sao Investment for continuing to have faith in HARMAN’s ability to deliver custom-tailored solutions for every client’s needs.”

Mahajak Trio Electronics deploys a complete HARMAN sound solution to ensure intelligible audio coverage at the church’s newly renovated facility

KUALA LUMPUR, MalaysiaMahajak Trio Electronics recently supplied a complete HARMAN audio system at Open Union Church, a Korean ministry church located in Malaysia.

Established in 1988, Open Union Church recently relocated from its old building located in Ampang Jaya to a newly renovated 4,000 square-foot building in Kuala Lumpur. In order to provide clear intelligibility and excellent sound quality for its growing congregation and new 500-seat worship space, Open Union Church decided to include a new state-of-the-art sound system as part of the renovation. The church had great success with JBL, Crown and AKG solutions at its previous facility, so the decision to choose a complete HARMAN system was easy.  

“I am very happy with the HARMAN systems installed in the church,” said Pastor Daniel, Senior Pastor, Open Union Church. “They provide intelligibility and great coverage. We were already using HARMAN solutions, and we are confident that the system will perform equally well in our new space.”

The complete HARMAN system consists of six JBL VT4886 loudspeakers and three JBL VT4883 subcompact dual 12" subwoofers on each side of the stage, with four JBL AC18/95 AE Series speakers used as delays. The entire system is powered by Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD and Crown XTI Series amplifiers.

For vocal reinforcement, the church deployed three AKG WMS470 multichannel wireless microphone systems. Audio is mixed on a Soundcraft Si Performer 3 digital live mixing console, which is paired with a 32-channel Soundcraft Mini Stagebox 32R for additional I/O. Two JBL LSR305 powered studio monitors are used for monitoring. The HARMAN system was installed by local integrator Acoustic Calibration Services.

“The reliability and performance of our solutions impressed the church management when it was time for them to upgrade,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “The church had been using HARMAN Professional products since their inception, and this carried through at the new building. We are pleased to see our customers coming back to us with confidence.”

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.
