The Mondrian is a prestigious river front central London hotel. The hotel opened with only limited audio system capability, with no Public Address (PA) / Tannoy for mass notification or with no means to communicate any important security or informational audio messages.
With very limited cable routing options and to minimise hotel disruption – IP audio for distribution and IP speakers, IP microphones were specified (lots of existing IP network cabling infrastructure was available to us).
Working directly with the Hotel management and engineering support team, we rolled out 80+ IP speakers, IP microphones and various IP Decoder / Encoder Interfaces to existing hotel audio and control systems.
- Public Address (PA) / Tannoy
- Background Music (BGM)
- Mass Notification, integrated security and ‘lockdown’ audio interface
Audio Specification & Technologies
- IP Speakers x 80
- IP Microphones x 4
- IP Audio message player
- IP / SIP telephony interface
IP audio is used extensively throughout this project. IP speakers, but also for IP audio transmission throughout. IP microphones are used for general Public Address (PA) / Tannoy. IP audio message players are used for browser access to selected audio message playback (eg. security announcements). IP interface coders are also used to interconnect legacy audio equipment and to provide priority signalling for mute conditions when required (eg. mute of BGM during message playback or PA announcements).
