Madame Tussauds Singapore employs Symetrix DSPs

AUTHOR: Inavate

The Madame Tussauds venue in Singapore has employed Symetrix SymNet Radius 12x8 Dante enabled DSPs for processing and distribution of audio. The installation was handled Electronics & Engineering.

Freddie Soh, senior account manager at Electrnics & Engineering had a key role in the project and collaborated closely with Benedikt Koch, GM of Thöne und Partner, for the project. Soh said: “The initial primary requirement of the DSP installation was for traditional analogue audio distribution based on earlier projects. However, subsequent to that, E&E made the recommendation of a networkable audio distribution infrastructure underpinned by Audinate’s Dante media networking technology. We knew that it would really add value to the project, and the client agreed to go ahead with this proposal.”

Twelve mic/line inputs, eight line outputs and support for Dante networking were among the features of the SymNet Radius 12x8 open architecture Dante-scalable DSP that led to its selection and two units were specified for the project. The integrator also deployed four SymNet xIn 12 audio input expanders. The project also included the use of EAW loudspeakers, Shure vocal microphones and Ashly Audio power amplifiers. Visual solutions from Panasonic and Samsung were also supplied.

Regarding the Symetrix components, Koch said: “The introduction of Dante to this project really sets the Museum up for the long-term future, so the originally specified SymNet Radius 12x8s with the add on flexibility Dante offers were a great choice. The feedback from the completed installation has been excellent and the client is very happy.”
