Acoustic Control Systems

The Built EnvironmentEvery building has a unique acoustic character which causes that building to be best suited only for a limited range of applications.

A hall may be designed and constructed to offer good speech intelligibility for theatrical applications or it may be constructed to compliment orchestral music or choral works.

It is very rare for a building to be well suited to all of these activities without the introduction of variable acoustics and so the opportunity to offer a variety of productions to audiences within the one hall are limited by the acoustic characteristics of that hall.

In turn this will result in restrictions being placed upon the revenue that the hall may be able to generate simply because of the difficulty of matching suitable events to the acoustics of the building and, by extension, with enthusiastic audiences.

The Solution

Sound Systems UK Limited is privileged to have been appointed by Acoustic Control Systems BV of the Netherlands as the UK agent for their electro-acoustic enhancement system, which offers true variable acoustics. We are proud, therefore, to offer sales of new systems and, equally importantly, service support, development and maintenance of existing installations

The Association of Lighting Designers is the professional body representing all those who work or are interested in the creation of lighting and video design for live performance and events in the United Kingdom and around the world.

Whether you are a designer, production electrician, programmer or crew member, the ALD aims to further the art and appreciation of creative lighting design and raise the awareness of the creative use of light and images as part of the development process for performance presentations. Its members are drawn from across the fields of theatre (including Opera and Dance), Rock and Roll, corporate presentations and events, education, and manufacturing.

The ALD is the mouthpiece of the performance lighting industry and a resource for information on the wide range of lighting design topics that affect designers and technicians in all areas of the live performance lighting profession. It also provides a resource and forum for the discussion and development of artistic and creative lighting aims, an understanding and education of the process involved in lighting design, and how changing technology assists this. It promotes the art and craft by organising and supporting a number of industry awards and bursaries for students and early career development, non-professional and through to the internationally recognised practitioners.

Bose® Professional offers high quality sound solutions for a wide range of commercial applications, such as theatres, hospitality, retail outlets, leisure centres, large corporate facilities, sports arenas, theme parks and visitor centres. Bose is committed to living up to its reputation for excellence in the specification and management of audio solutions, offering a complete specialist service to specifiers and end-users where the primary aim is the highest quality audio reproduction. This is achieved through working with a network of authorised Bose Partners. The extensive Bose® Professional product portfolio allows for many different configurations that will meet the needs of many businesses. Whether indoors or outdoors, for smaller or larger venues, portable or fixed installations, the Bose Professional product range includes loudspeakers, amplification solutions and related electronics, allowing a high degree of user-friendliness or even automated control.

The focus for the last few years has been on solutions for large venues, including a new category of loudspeaker which delivers concert quality sound for a wide variety of fixed installation systems in theatres, concert halls, performance spaces and arenas. Bose® DeltaQ Array Modules offer unprecedented scalability to provide consistent tonal balance for a wide variety of room sizes, shapes, acoustic requirements, or budgets. This unique scalability allows modules to be used singularly in applications with modest SPL and coverage-control requirements, or to form arrays for the highest SPL and coverage-control requirements. The precise, constant-directivity coverage from all modules and array configurations helps ensure consistent tonal balance, virtually independent of room shape and acoustics.

Bose Professional has also introduced a significant number of new products that are specially developed to integrate with Dante™, an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology. It allows customers to use standard IT networks to transmit high quality sound, replacing expensive analog or multicore cabling with low cost Cat5e, CAT6 or fibre optic cable.
