Waves, OSL & OHM Meet Installation Demands of IICB Auditorium, Kolkata

IICB Auditorium enhances sound experience with products by Waves, OSL, and OHM

IICB Auditorium, Jadavpur-Kolkata chose Waves, OSL, and OHM as their sound partners to deliver a seamless audio experience carried out by Vardhaman Megatech Pvt Ltd.

Indian Institute of Chemical Biology (IICB) is a premier scientific research institution located in Kolkata, India. Established in 1935, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious research organizations in the country. The institute operates under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), which is the largest public-funded research and development organization in India.

“I am extremely satisfied with the audio installation carried out by VMT. The expertise and professionalism displayed by their team were commendable. They diligently addressed the challenges of our unique venue and delivered a state-of-the-art audio system that surpassed our expectations,” commented Mr. Ujjal Roy, Executive Engineer, IICB/CPWD.

“It gives me great pleasure to share my satisfaction as a System Integrator for the installation at IICB Auditorium, in partnership with VMT. The dedication and professionalism demonstrated by VMT's team were outstanding throughout the entire process. As a result, we were able to overcome the venue's acoustic challenges and deliver an audio system that sets a new standard for the auditorium,” said Mr. Anup Biswas, System Integrator, Satellite Electronics.

At the IICB Jadavpur-Kolkata venue, the installation team was tasked with meeting the demanding needs and high expectations of the clients. The primary objective was to deliver a seamless audio experience for their events and performances. However, the installation presented some challenges due to the venue's unique acoustics and diverse event requirements. The team needed to ensure crystal-clear sound projection, optimal coverage, and powerful bass response to cater to a wide range of events, from lectures to live performances.

To overcome these challenges, the team selected a carefully curated set of high-quality products. The Waves Emotion LV1 Live Mixer formed the backbone of the audio system, providing flexible control and pristine sound quality. For delivering outstanding sound reinforcement, the OHM Cronus 10 speakers with their 10" woofer and 1" compression driver, capable of 129 dB SPL, were deployed. The OHM BRS 15 reflex-tuned subwoofer ensured deep and punchy bass reproduction.

Waves, OSL, and OHM audio products at IICB ensure excellent midrange and high-frequency performance

To maintain consistent audio coverage, the OHM BRT 6 and BRT 26 compact trapezoidal point-source cabinets were strategically positioned. Additionally, the OHM BRT-15 woofer and 1.5" compression driver provided excellent midrange and high-frequency performance. The Oyster Digital Signal Processing offered precise signal control and optimization, enhancing the overall audio experience.

For vocal clarity, the OSL O5D high-performance Vocal Microphone with adapted sensitivity for deep vocals, along with the OS 18 adjustable 18" Cardioid Gooseneck Microphone, were used. The installation was completed with the reliable OSL OS 42B Gooseneck Base with Switch and the OSL Q500.2R Dual channel true diversity receiver, paired with the Q500.92H true diversity handheld transmitter and Q500.91P true diversity bodypack for flawless wireless connectivity.

In conclusion, the installation at IICB Jadavpur-Kolkata successfully met the venue's diverse audio needs and surpassed the client's expectations. The strategic use of premium audio products ensured exceptional sound quality and coverage for a wide variety of events, making it a resounding success.

"The audio system we designed, using Waves Emotion LV1 Live Mixer and OHM speakers, exceeded all expectations. The clients were impressed with the crystal-clear sound projection and powerful bass response, making it a resounding success for a variety of events," said Wicky Pereira, Pre-Design & Sales Engineer, VMT Enterprise on the successful installation.

"Our team strategically selected and deployed top-of-the-line products, including Waves Emotion LV1 Live Mixer, OHM speakers, and OSL microphones, to overcome challenging venue acoustics and diverse event requirements. The result is an exceptional audio experience with crystal-clear sound projection, optimal coverage, and powerful bass response," stated Dharam Koli, Pre-design & Sales Engineer, VMT Enterprise.

"The venue's diverse events demanded an audio system that could deliver exceptional performance across various setups. However, our team rose to the occasion, carefully selecting the right combination of OHM speakers and subwoofers, complemented by Waves Emotion LV1 Live Mixer," stated Anindya Bhattacharya, Deputy General Manager - East India, VMT Enterprise.
