The world-famous Sydney Opera House’s new audio system upgrade in its Concert Hall comprises 11 Lake Contour speaker processors driving a permanently installed central cluster of JBL speakers. Four more Contours control Meyer line arrays, which can be configured from Meyer M3D, M2D and M1D models. A hard-wired desktop PC provides an interface with the Lake Contour Controller software and the Crown IQ amplification via an Ethernet network.
A laptop at FOH, with the same setup as the desktop, acts as a dedicated SIA Software SmaartLive measurement/analysis machine; measurements are transmitted to a Compaq tablet touchscreen dedicated to Contour Controller.
Future plans include integrating an AMX system with the Lake Contour VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) and the Crown IQ VLAN to control all of the audio processing systems.
