Busan, Republic Of Korea— To create an immersive platform to showcase local culture and arts, Geumjeong Arko Performing Practice Center partnered with TechDataPS Co., Ltd., to deploy a high-quality sound system from HARMAN Professional Solutions.
With the foundation of a self-sustaining creative ecosystem, Geumjeong Arko Performing Practice Center is a stable and optimized practice space for performing artists. The venue consists of a grand practice room, two substantial practice rooms, and two small practice rooms. It also provides a showcase space for performing artists and groups.
TechDataPS Co reported that the client wanted a high-quality audio system to record and edit audio. They also wanted to maximise the design setup and use the space for both practice and small performances. Such a setup needed the infrastructure and speaker systems to be flexibly configured, providing them with the opportunity to change the layout from horizontal to vertical when needed. HARMAN Professional audio systems, due to its unmatched flexibility and ease of use, were the ideal choice for this venue, according to the TechDataPS team.
Combining the best-of-breed technologies from a range of HARMAN products, TechDataPS upgraded the performance venue. The speaker and subwoofer system installed consisted of the JBL AM7212 full-range loudspeaker system with a dual voice coil and dual magnetic gap. PRX818XLF self-powered extended low-frequency subwoofer system with remote Wi-Fi control and PRX812W full-range speakers were fitted to the main system and floor monitor applications, offering powerful JBL signature sound and complete wireless control.
The loudspeaker and subwoofer system was supported with Crown XTI6002 and XTI4002 amplifiers and Soundcraft VI1 mixing console. As the client wanted a flexible, easily operable system with less staff involvement, digital mixer presets were introduced. BLU-100 processors were used to operate the setup without separate patching, ensuring seamless switchover and safe performance.
The team at Geumjeong Arko Performing Practice Center requested a “high-quality sound system with good stability, durability, and ease of management.” The Center reported to HARMAN that the audio equipment provided excellent sound quality for the space, and the intuitive interface of the digital mixers helped their staff get familiar with the system and operate it conveniently.
“Providing pristine sound quality for multi-purpose venues like Geumjeong Arko Performing Practice Center require state-of-the-art audio systems that are future-proofed,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "We would like to thank our partner TechDataPS Co., Ltd., for providing an enriching experience to the client and their unwavering confidence in HARMAN’s products as they continue to bring unique and engaging experiences to the fore.”
