The PA People installs MTX-series AV solution for The Japan Foundation’s new Sydney facility
“The Japan Foundation is a Japanese public organization established in 1972 in Tokyo dedicated to promoting cultural and intellectual exchange between Japan and other nations. The Japan Foundation, Sydney organises and coordinates a variety of events in Australia, including Japanese language classes, film screenings, seminars, workshops and exhibitions, each with its own specific list of technical requirements. The AV fit-out provided by The PA People allows us to conduct these activities in our new premises to the high standards expected by our many visitors.” Says Nicholas Howe - Program Coordinator, Arts & Culture Department, The Japan Foundation.
The installation had some unique requirements with AV equipment utilised such as Yamaha audio mixing consoles, processors and control panels and various projectors. Within the gallery a custom projector mount was also installed that allowed for a 360 degree configuration. The audio and video processing of the system was performed in a central location and then distributed throughout the office network with local control from each space.
Josh Jones, Project Manager for The P.A. People said; “The conference room encompassed the main space and included video inputs over an HDbaseT infrastructure. Yamaha multi-region DVD players were used to play Japanese region-specific content. The conference room audio system comprises a number of wireless microphones. These were mixed locally via the Yamaha MG16 audio mixer before being processed by MTX3 Yamaha audio processing and routed to the in-house speaker system.”
