Supplied and installed by Uzbek installer ShowPro, the university's audio system is based on a Dante network, which seamlessly integrates with the Extron GVE platform for campus-wide AV system management and monitoring, via touchscreens in the presentation lecterns. The multi-zone system is designed to ensure the clearest sound for every student in each room, as well as having the ability to combine into a single, bi-directional environment. This could be, for example, to allow the classrooms to be used as overspill for a major event in the lecture theatre when more seating is needed, but still facilitate Q&A sessions.
Yamaha VXC8 ceiling speakers and VXS8 surface-mount speakers are used throughout the installation, with multi-channel XMV series Dante model power amplifiers. These can operate simultaneously in both high- and low-impedance, allowing connectivity of both speaker types, without affecting the number of available output channels or the audio quality. A Yamaha MRX7-D matrix processor is used to manage the audio system in each space, using its onboard parametric EQ, dynamic feedback suppression, Dan Dugan automixing, matrix mixer, speaker processing and delay to deliver optimum sound.
The most visible of the facilities is the Room 303 lecture theatre and the control room which overlooks it. This multi-purpose space can host a wide range of events and features a Yamaha QL5 digital mixing console (with MY4-AEC Acoustic Echo Canceller and MY8-LAKE Lake Processing cards) and a Rio1608-D I/O rack in the control room with the MRX7-D. Another Rio1608-D is provided on the stage for local I/O. Six pairs of VXC8W ceiling speakers are installed above the auditorium, powered by an XMV8280-D multi-channel amplifier.
The system delivers maximum flexibility, allowing lectures and smaller events to be managed by the MRX7-D's Dan Dugan automixing and relayed via the VXC8Ws, while bigger events are mixed on the QL5 console to installed line arrays, which can be reinforced by the Yamaha ceiling speakers.
