SEStran portable wireless conference microphone / PA system
Edinburgh's fantastic dance facility has had a superb sound system installed in the principal studio.
Based around the high definition Shermann GX501 loudspeakers and Yamaha amplification, the system has a mobile playback rack which can be plugged in at various positions in the studio or in the purpose built control room.
Flexibility is the key. Low level utility panels around the room offer balanced ties lines and speaker outlets. High and low level speaker outlets are all patchable in the control room.7
Speakers are suspended from fixed bars on custom swivel brackets which allow blackouts to be draped right across the ceiling below the bars. Blackouts are needed when the space is being used for performance because it has a glass roof. This is a fantastic feature during the daytime - filling the studio with natural light and affording a superb view of Edinburgh Castle. The blackouts also improve the naturally reverberant acoustic of the space.
Efficient use has been made of some existing playback equipment in order to keep the expenditure down. This Sound System Installation project was made possible by a donation from Walker Homes.
Dancebase won the Scottish Building of the year (2002) award.

Wireless Conference Audio.
GB Audio have supplied the Beyerdynamic MCWD50 portable wireless digital conference system to several conference centres and company boardrooms.
One example is Edinburgh based SEStran (South East of Scotland Transport Partnership). The system comprises a number of wireless table microphone units with integral speakers, an automatic base controller and storage flightcase with built-in charging rack. As well as offering a very neat, stand-alone PA solution for meetings, the system also interfaces with and enhances the organisation's video-conferencing system. This sits well with two of SEStran's objectives: 1. Reduce the number of people commuting in single occupancy vehicles within South East Scotland – especially for journeys to and from Edinburgh; but also for journeys outwith the SEStran area. 2. Minimise the overall need for travel, especially by car. top
GB Audio have considerable experience in helping clients to deal with problems of noise pollution and Environmental Heath Department license requirements. See Testing Times.
