to ISO DIN 14675. The latter ensures that if there is an emergency, visitors can leave the building in an organised fashion via escape routes which were previously defined. Apart from its principal application it also allows for generating public addresses and background music and offers a great variety of options concerning volume, EQ, delay etc. The intercom system was customised and can be operated via an ADUNAS media control system just like a stage management system can. Regarding the architectural light (hall lighting) and the scenic light (stage lighting) the experts saw to it that 100% dimming without a starting jolt was achieveable. All of the cable routes are discreetly concealed behind the wood panelling, and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is ensured by isolating the cables from the audiovisual media equipment. Therefore, interference is reliably prevented. Working together with GDS, ASC designed and
installed special structures exactly following the architectâ€™s ideas. As the architect wanted the number of lamps in the ceiling to be restricted to a minimum, the light sources are located in an accessible duct (catwalk) above the wooden ceiling. 79 LED profile spotlights from the ETC Source Four product family are used as ceiling lighting directly above the stage. Owing to front-mounted cut-glass sections light emission is flimmer-free so as not to interfere with video and TV recordings and to prevent the acoustics of the room to be affected by operating noise. Attached to armoured steel conduits the spotlight cables go to a central rack room, however, this does not include the safety lighting. From the ceiling the Source Four spotlights can provide beams with angles up to 25 to 30Â°. Wherever scenic lighting requires warm white light, clear fields of light, high flexibility, and extended service life, these spotlights will do it. Likewise GDS lights are integrated in the outer www.mondodr.com
circle above the stage, below the tiers, in the corridors, at the doors, and at the steps. The creative GDS product range features a great diversity of luminaires and special structures with specifically developed lamps. Both the hall - or architectural and the safety luminaires use LED lamps and are manufactured to meet the highest and most advanced standards. Like the scenic lighting they are managed via the ADUNAS media control system. Owing to the ADUNAS system it is possible to program the scenic lighting specifically involving the lighting system as a whole. It allows for setting up scenes, for storing them as scene automation, and for using interfaces to retrieve them individually. The system also ensures basic facility functions such as the automatic lowering of blackout blinds and the control of third-party components. Each of the ETC spotlights is controllable and hence its inclination angle adjustable individually. www.amptown-system.com
