New Convention Center installs widespread NEXUS audio network
Doha / Buttenheim, July 2009:The largest convention centre in the Middle East is currently under construction in Doha, capital of the emerging Arabian Emirate of Qatar. In cooperation with Svetlost Teatar, a system vendor from Belgrade, the SALZBRENNER STAGETEC MEDIAGROUP will carry out a comprehensive audio and media installation, enabling the new venue to become home for events of international repute.
Special focus lays on the optical network interconnecting the various parts of the complex. The audio network will comprise a NEXUS STAR plus 16 NEXUS Base Devices connected in a star topology. In addition, the rooms that are to be used for major events will be equipped with digital mixing consoles. Moreover, the MEDIAGROUP will provide a large conference system for 4,000 delegates as well as extensive AV systems including microphones, speakers, projectors, and displays. Just three years are scheduled between commissioning and completion of this large-scale project. The centre is due to open in 2011.
The building complex which is designed by the renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki will house an auditorium with 2,500 seats, a large convention hall for up to 4,000 people, and several exhibition halls as well as a large number of smaller rooms suitable for presentations and meetings. With its tree-shaped façade, the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) is being talked about as the future symbol of Doha.
