Allen & Heath's iDR in major Malaysian development
20 October 2003
Malaysia - An iDR-8 has been installed in Berjaya Times Square, a new multi-million dollar development in the heart of Malaysia's capital city, Kuala Lumpur. Measuring 2,100,000sq.ft, it is the largest shopping/leisure complex and houses the largest indoor theme park in the Asia Pacific region.
Allen & Heath's iDR-8 unit, with an iDR-out expander, has been installed as a zone controller in the indoor theme park, where a resident DJ pumps out the music. The signal from the DJ mixer is distributed to 16 zone loudspeakers. An event schedule has also been created using the DSP system's programmable patches, whereby at 2.30pm daily the zone volumes gradually increase with a 10 second crossfade; similarly at 10pm the volume automatically decreases with the same crossfade effect. There is a dedicated PC at the DJ booth for remote control of the iDR-8 & iDR-out over Cat 5 cable.
Malaysia's Works Minister, Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu, said Berjaya Times Square was the largest development of its kind in the Asia Pacific and the largest project undertaken in a single-phase anywhere in the world. Altogether, it will have 15 floors of retail shops, restaurants, department stores, cinemas and an indoor theme park. The complex has projected visit traffic of three million visitors per month.
"I believe that Berjaya Times Square is set to become an international landmark for shopping, luxury accommodation, business, amusement, food and beverage and entertainment," says Vellu.
