Compact Monitor and P&O, Cruise to a Cracker of a Start

Under extreme pressure Compact Monitor shone bright, not only managing the initial optimistic schedule of works but managed to handle all the variations with fluency and professionalism.

Compact Monitor Systems where contracted to facilitate significant upgrades to the audio systems in the Main Auditorium, the prestigious “Atlantis Lounge” which was the major refit component of the dry dock and took a total of 3 weeks for 4 technicians to complete.

No stone was left unturned and basically every aspect of the system was analysed and where needed replaced. This was complimented with a brand new 5m projection screen and three Sony remote cameras for Imag and POV references for the audience and backstage/technical staff.

On the Lido/pool deck we installed 6 brand new Large JBL Speakers and 2 huge JBL Subs to create a better audio presence throughout the hole area as this is the main point of interest on the ship where they have a variety of stage shows and themed evenings.

The prestigious Oasis bar on the aft deck received a brand new Audio system for creating a soothing and relaxing environment for the guests to enjoy a beverage or two.

Even the crew bar for the hard working to relax in received a substantial Lighting, Audio and Visual refit.

Other works also involved servicing and repair of existing lighting, electrical services in the main theatre and additions to a variety of Audio Visual applications throughout the many exclusive venues onboard.

Please browse through the variety of images of the dry dock depicting some of the variety of people and services provided.

Compact is currently in the midst of preparing for the next Dry dock of the Pacific Dawn in late May, look forward to the next update.

Railcorp Monitor Wall Project

Compact Monitor Systems has recently completed a client specific custom designed and manufactured multi-screen monitor frame.

Railcorp sent out a request for quotation for a custom made monitor wall structure that had to be self supported and “neat and tidy”. There is a requirement for the frame to allow the removal or replacement of any screen without requiring deconstruction of the monitor array. We designed a steel structure that bolted to the slab, had two heavy duty legs which held a truss frame for the screens.

The specification was to mount two rows of seven 40″ LCD panels seamlessly. We decided on that the Samsung 400UX was the perfect screen for this application, as it is designed specifically for this purpose. The client also specified that each screen receive DVI and composite video input sources. The cabling is hidden in the legs of the frame for discretion and aesthetics.

The installation had to be done out of hours for safety reasons and the entire job was completed in two nights allowing little or no interruption to their day to day activities.

Attention to detail was paramount to the success of this install which is a policy of Compact Monitor Systems.
At hand over, the client was ecstatic with the professionalism and efficiency of the Compact crew and commented on how much a pleasure it was to work with us.

Custom made frames are a niche for Compact Monitor as our designs and applications are second to none.
Let Compact take the concern of a custom made frame out of your next multi screen display.

Sydney Entertainment Centre Project

According to Bill Richardson, Managing Director, Compact Monitor Systems Australia, Sydney Entertainment Centre had ceiling speakers in odd clusters. Compact Monitor Systems Australia installed all new wiring as the old wiring was not up to the current AS/NZS 4000 wiring code. At the time of the original installation, it was fine, but since then all low voltage systems are required to have double insulated cabling. The rules have also recently changed to ensure all upgrades are treated as new installations.

Compact Monitor Systems Australia added a Shure 550L paging microphone and a couple of ports where they could use it in the building. They also introduced the chime system into the main PA, where it is used to be a standalone system run from back of house.

The 10 discreet zones housed a total of 91 Control 24CT Micro ceiling speakers, 7 Control 25T surface mounted speakers upstairs and 25 Control 25 AV speakers. Outdoor was serviced by Control 26T ceiling speakers.
Compact Monitor Systems Australia chose the Control 24CT because of their 70/100V line factor, small size and reliable audio reproduction and power handling capacity.

The hardest part of the project was the actual installation of the JBL ceiling speakers as the ceiling was constructed of thin metal slats that resemble C-channel. After a bit of trial and error, circles were cut with templates and aircraft ‘tin snip’ scissors and the holes were reinforced with steel rings.

Compact Monitor Systems Australia opted to use Crown CDI amplifiers (five CDI 1000 models) and a dbx ZonePRO 1260 digital signal processor as a master and a dbx ZonePRO 1261 as a slave.

The ZonePro line of products is reliable and the DSP options make it a suitable choice for venue installations. The ZonePRO is an easier product to use for the end user. Users can locally run volume on the inputs and on all the zone outputs, making it easy for untrained staff to use.

The ZonePRO is Ethernet compatible and offers a permanent log-in to the entertainment centre through VPN.
JBL Control 24CT Micro ceiling speakers, JBL Control 25 surface mounted speakers, JBL Control 25 Control 25 AV speakers, Shure 550L paging microphones and dbx ZonePRO 1260 digital signal processors are available from Jands.

Sydney Aquarium Project

As Digital Signage experts we were approached by Sydney attractions to deliver them a “Rock Solid Digital sign Solution” for the Lizard lounge at the wharf side of Wild Life World.
The installation required the use of four separate menu boards that not only were clear and precise to read but also vibrant delivering an instant visual impact.
Using a solid state media player we are able to display multiple images and video in 5 separate zones anywhere on the screens.
This gave the client not only great flexibility in operation but freedom to display whatever they wished whenever they wanted.
The beauty of our digital signage solution is that it doesn’t require a computer to run the signage, it is all stored in the device sitting nicely behind the screen.
The device can be accessed via wireless or through a LAN to make changes or adjustments to the media source.
The system is so robust we haven’t had to change out any of these boxes out of all of the clients we have supplied them too.
Through research and our expertise in the field we have discovered an awesome digital signage network device.
