(Click image to enlarge)

Budget: Less than 1 crore INR (Less than USD150,000)

Project Overview:

The government organization had a requirement for their Auditorium and Regional Training Centre to be used by the Mumbai premises. When All Wave AV Systems (www.allwaveav.com) were approached for the design-build, the needs analysis was done for both areas. All Wave AV Systems is regarded by industry specialists, AV/IT consultants, Project Management Consultants (PMC’s), end users & clients, and space designers as one of the premier AV System Integrators in India. We work across the verticals of Design-Supply-Install-Maintain (D-S-I-M) to offer solutions from a conceptual stage to commissioning and after sales support.

What did the client want to achieve?

For the Design stage, a careful needs analysis was done with the Key personnel Mr. Gopal Krishnan and Head Dr. Atul Fulzale. Several rounds of iterations of the design were made keeping user needs, project budgets and timelines in mind. The Bill of Quantities (BoQ) was designed keeping the Infocomm best practices in mind (www.infocomm.org) for video, audio, lighting and video/ tele conferencing. Precise calculations were made on maximum and minimum viewing distance, angles, Needed Acoustic gains needed (NAG), light dimming calculations etc.

The installation has been of top quality with trusted and trained engineers and technicians working to deliver the smoothest output. We have certified engineers who made sure that the installation is impeccable and is user-friendly. A brief training was given to the IT personnel and they are very happy with our services.

The end result was clearly a spectacular installation , both in terms of Quality and Promise delivered. The tight timelines were adhered to and several stakeholders have appreciated the work. Allwave AV went above and beyond simple contractual obligations and thought more about the client’s needs and wishes.

A brief training was given to the IT personnel and they are very happy with our services.

Scope of work your company was involved in:

Display Solution
In Auditorium we have considered as One 6500 Ansi Lumens High Brightness WXGA Projector with 150” 16:9 Ratio Projector Screen and CBI were supplied Two 50” High Resolution 1920 x 1080(Full HD) Displays. In Regional Training Centre we have suggested 2×2 55” Video Wall and Video Wall Controller to control the contents of Display.

Audio Solution
We have proposed Two Line Arrays, one Subwoofer and one Amplifier for better experience of speech as well as we have considered four ceiling speakers and one amplifier. Ceiling speakers are considered in this room for speech reinforcement and These speakers are distributed uniformly so that the audio is more natural and users hear the voice in more natural way also we have proposed two monitor speakers on stage pointing towards the performers to help them hear themselves

Automation System
In Auditorium and Regional Training Centre we have suggested Cue controller with iPad. The Cue controller is designed to provide control, monitoring, lighting and shading, climate control, security, energy management, and many other specialized applications

Light Dimming Solution
For Light Dimming we have proposed Raylogic 6-channel 0-10 VDC/DSI drive for dimmable ballasts and 10 button designer keypad to control different moods and fixtures in Auditorium.

Supply and Installation
The Supply and Installation was done in 7 Days incorporating Regional Training Centre and Auditorium. The installation has been of top quality with trusted and trained engineers and technicians working to deliver the smoothest output. We have certified engineers who made sure that the installation is impeccable and is user-friendly.

What key challenges were faced?

The government organization was operating out of multiple offices which were to be integrated into a single premise. This meant that various teams had to move into a single physical premise. The key areas in this premises is Auditorium and the Regional training centre. Our major challenge was getting the needs analysis done to ensure hundred percent deliverance and satisfaction across all sections . We appraise them on all applicable emerging AV Technologies post which we got around to pin pointing the likes and dislikes across the Board. This process culminated into a final AV design with nine versions after three and a half months.

The second major challenge was the project timelines post confirmations which were limited to ten days.

Our logistics and admin team worked overtime to ensure timely deliveries with a dozen odd OEM’s and distributors. Our Engineering and technical team did a commendable job of installing testing and commissioning all AV equipment over three days working around the clock .

How were those challenges resolved?

How has your work helped the client:

As mentioned above , different departments of the client having come from diverse environments of communication platforms have been able to slip into a common AV platform with ease . The Regional training centre in particular allows a single usage and application hub which is utilised as means of communications for trainings, conferences and learning.
