AUTHOR: Inavate

Vidyalanker Institute of Technology, situated in Wadala (East), a central suburb of Mumbai, India has chosen Tannoy solutions for its auditorium and general premises.

Vishwas Deshpande, managing trustee of the Vidyalankar Dyanapeeth Trust, said regarding the space: “For this building, it was felt that what we really needed was a good auditorium that could be used for lectures, movie screenings, events and more. We wanted something that was attractive, simple to use and flexible enough to cope with a variety of events and end users.”

As with any project, the budget was the primary constraint. Deshpande said: “Initially we tried a few companies, and many different solutions were proposed, but it left everyone very confused as many of the proposals were over what had been budgeted for the project.”

Hewshott was able to recommend a Tannoy solution that met the budget and also served to meet the audio requirements of the auditorium. Two Tannoy VXP 15HP loudspeakers have been mounted on the ceiling as the main front of house system.

Two further VXP 8 loudspeakers are positioned on the floor as monitor wedges, with two VSX 15DR subwoofers, powered by a Lab.gruppen C 48:4 amplifier, installed under the stage to provide extra LF support should it be required. The amp rack comprises of four Lab.gruppen E 8.2 amplifiers, which provide the power for the Tannoy Di6 loudspeakers installed on each side of the auditorium to act as side fills and delays.

The front of house position offers control via a Soundcraft console, while beyerdynamic mics are used throughout the auditorium. With building work not limited to the auditorium itself, Hewshott also selected a number of Tannoy CVS ceiling speakers for the reception areas, DVS on-wall speakers for the boardrooms, and CMS dual concentric ceiling speakers for the dining areas, allowing for a signature sound throughout the building.

The systems integration portion of the project was completed by project contractor Sigma-Byte A/V, whose own previous experience with Tannoy products made for a smooth installation.
