Bern-based integration specialist room-zoom, in coordination with Mobilesolutions
Zürich, has installed an Audica Professional background music system in the new Altitude
restaurant in Geneva Airport.
Altitude is owned by SSP, The Food Travel Experts, who operate more than 1,800 units
in over 140 airports and nearly 300 railway stations across Asia, North America,
Europe, the Middle East, India and North Africa. The stylish new venue was created
in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Gilles Dupont and is part of a redevelopment
of the airport.
Daniel Kormann of room-zoom was commissioned to provide the concept and installation
of the audio system for the venue and chose Audica Professional loudspeakers based
on audio quality and coverage, as well as the product’s aesthetics which suited the
quality and contemporary design of Altitude.
The system uses sixteen Audica Professional MICROline full-range loudspeakers and
three MICROsubs to provide very even coverage with well-extended frequency throughout
the venue. Black-finish MICROlines were chosen to merge with the décor and the subs
were integrated out of view. The system’s DSP is provided by a Biamp Nexia CS and
is powered by an 8 x 150W Biamp MCA 8150. The system includes Crestron for simple
and flexible control.
