11/08/2017

Multipurpose venue looked for flexible system to cater to different entertainment requirements

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - When installing a new sound system in their multi-use facility, The Mega Star Arena (MSA) team turned to HARMAN Professional Solutions to help implement a solution which would offer flexibility to produce a variety of events.

MSA, located in Kuchai Lama, is ideally located to cater to major events and performances in the country. The venue features an 18,000 square foot (1672 square meters) flat floor open plan hall that can be customized according to each events' needs. The venue also features a vast array of the latest, fully integrated audio-visual technology solutions with free WiFi access. It is a multi-dimensional venue which acts as a performing theater, mega event venue, convention facility for corporates and seminars and even a church gathering on Sunday.

Mega Star Arena was conceptualized to be a one stop center not only to be able to cater to different events but also to ensure that it possessed state-of-the-art audio visual equipment thereby enabling the best experience for their clients and their customers. It was critical that the Audio-Visual technology is able to cater to a wide array of requirements from a corporate conference to a large scale concert. In this aspect the choice of sound system was an important factor.

We wanted to provide a full-fledged audio visual system in house to cater to our customers' requirements, said Paul Wong, Owner, Mega Star Arena. From a conference to large scale concert, we are able to provide expert and reliable assistance to ensure a customer's vision is executed successfully and professionally. HARMAN Professional Solutions has helped us meet those requirements and ensure our customers are satisfied .

HARMAN Professional Solutions partners in Malaysia, Mahajak Trio, was hired by the MSA Group to help them achieve their objectives of flexibility and quality. Working with the MSA Group leadership team, technical director, sound architect and designers, HARMAN's JBL range of products was determined to be the best suited for the arena.

The team chose the JBL VTX V25 3-Way line array loudspeaker, as the venue was to be treated as a large arena for which the product is aptly suited, along with achieving the MSA Group's vision to invest in the best available technology and sound experience. The systems were provided as a test case for a few months and after sufficient ground trials for live performances, they were recognised for their quality and performance and purchased by MSA as part of their inventory.

In addition, the JBL VTX V25 loudspeakers were complemented with JBL VTX S28 Dual 18 subwoofers to handle the low frequencies. The V25 speakers deliver powerful sound in a compact, lightweight enclosure that is perfect for a venue such as MSA. Ensuring flexibility for the sound system setup is the JBL VTX-V25-AF frame structure that enables suspended or ground-stacked configurations for the VTX24 and S28 speakers, with all the relevant frame and pin holes to assemble the systems in place quickly and effectively. Driving the speakers are Crown IT 1200 HTD and 4X3500HD amplifiers that are racked onto a rugged Crown VRack system that is not only mobile but is fully protected from rough handling.

Mixing duties is assigned to a Soundcraft Vi3000 digital sound console that offers 36 faders and 24 mono/stereo busses. The Vi3000 also boasts a black screen panel with four Vistonics II touchscreen interfaces. The four touchscreen interfaces offer the option for two engineers to operate the console at the same time.

The console is also complemented with a Soundcraft Realtime Rack Ultimate Sound Plug-in Engine that offers 74-plug ins. The Soundcraft Realtime Rack provides access to Universal Audios acclaimed analogue audio processing emulations and award-winning UAD plug-ins. Realtime Rack software gives Vi console operators all the control they need to insert UAD plug-ins on individual channels, auxiliary channels, and master busses - just as easily as real hardware. A comprehensive snapshot system allows total recall of all plug-ins and their settings, while tight network integration with the Vi Series ensures that all settings of the application are stored inside the console. The Vi3000 with the Soundcraft Realtime Rack in essence offers operators a powerful console that is able to recreate the ideal sound specific to the event's character.

We are privileged to be associated with Mega Star Arena and happy to have met their requirements to build an outstanding convention center in Kuala Lampur working with our partners Mahajak Trio, said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. The HARMAN Professional Solutions' suite of solutions at the venue showcase the ability of the systems to be deployed quickly for different configurations to meet the venue's demands and enhance their customer experience.
