DESCRIPTION

Emergency Warning System

OVERVIEW

Channel 7’s building located at Melbourne’s newly developed and picturesque docklands. It is only a few minutes walk for the 300 people that work in the building to the heart of the CBD. The purpose built facility is now the headquarters and main broadcasting facility for the whole of Australia. There are two main studios within the building where the news and a current affairs program are filmed every day.

SYSTEM SUMMARY

The EV3000 Emergency Warning and Intercom System (EWIS) consists of a 29u cabinet with 5 EWS zones and 5 EIS zones.

SITE SPECIFIC CHALLENGES

The challenges presented by the project were that the system had to be extremely reliable, asthetically pleasing and able to cater for the vast production areas.

SITE SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS

EV3000 120 watt power amplifiers are utilised to overcome the shear size of the studios and production areas. A 40 watt amplifier is used to cover the office areas. The sleek design of the overall system complemented the building’s interior.

INSTALLERS STATEMENT

“The installation went without a hitch as Ampac supplied what we wanted in a timely fashion.”
