Ajankohtaista

Electro Waves is happy to receive unique wishes, and one of these was the illuminated floor clock at the Valkea shopping center in Oulu. The project began when the shopping center designer came up with an idea of embedding a LED clock with a two-meter diameter into the floor. They wanted an unilluminated area indicating seconds, minutes and hours and the possibility to change colours.

The requirements for the project were:
– Ability to withstand the weight of a vehicle
– Ability to withstand the water used for washing the floor
– Ability to withstand installation into a cast
– Maintenance access from the top
– Timed startup
– Scratch-proof glass that isn’t slippery

A meeting of professionals lead to a successful outcome!

MTV Ltd is an expert of video and audio, and so the AV equipment at the company’s internal use should be the best in the business and guaranteed to function properly.

Electro Waves delivered and installed AV equipment at MTV’s premises at Ilmala, Helsinki, in e.g. the meeting room, hall, and auditorium in August 2016. The contact person for the project was Heli Kunnas, Property Manager at MTV Ltd. Kunnas says they “were not familiar with Electro Waves beforehand, but we found them through Google and were impressed in the tendering stage by the way they genuinely offered the things we asked for – and the price was right as well”.

Six entirely new meeting rooms were built for MTV with names and themes strongly connected to the company’s business. We were able to take pictures in the MTV SPORT meeting room, into which, like all other meeting rooms, a screen, active speakers, and all the necessary cables were installed.

“We needed equipment that could play anything. We are a forerunner in the industry, so we must have proper equipment. An old whirring data projector on the table does not sit very well with our business”, says Heli Kunnas, and continues: “Users have been very happy because the equipment is reliable and easy to use. It is important that the equipment works with a Mac as well as with old and new PCs”.

”Electro Waves acted professionally throughout the process. The AV expert had answers to all of our questions and gave good suggestions”

”It is also important that both the screen and the speakers are the right size for the space. Audio and video have been pre-adjusted, so the only thing left for the user to do is to select ‘PC or TV’”.  In addition, screens playing content produced by the media house were installed in the offices and open meeting areas of the meeting facilities.

Renewing the AV equipment was part of a larger renovation into which professionals of different fields from structural engineers to electrical designers took part. An AV designer was also involved, and their AV plan received praise from Electro Waves as well.

The entire transformation process was long: nearly 1.5 years. In addition to the meeting rooms, changes were made to the offices: “We did not only change the physical facilities, we changed our entire business model”, says Kunnas. AV equipment came along at the final stages of the process when the premises were already clean and dust-free. The electrical contractor had already finished laying the AV cables, so Electro Waves had an easy job to come in and install the equipment as agreed.

Heli Kunnas says they were extremely satisfied with the service of Electro Waves: “They acted professionally throughout the process. We first had a chance to familiarise ourselves with the equipment at their premises, and their AV expert had answers to all of our questions and gave good suggestions. The products were exactly what they had offered”.

The timetable for the project was challenging, as work had to start quickly after the decision was made on the provider. “Electro Waves did an excellent job and stayed on schedule, even though the timeframe was exceptionally tight”, Kunnas praises, and notes that they have already made additional orders. She believes they will continue to use Electro Waves in the future as well when renewing or adding to their AV equipment.

Together with the Finnish Lappset Group Oy, Electro Waves implemented the magical Mattel Play theme park in Liverpool, United Kingdom. The theme of the park includes Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam and Thomas the Tank Engine, characters also familiar to Finnish children. We designed and implemented the park’s PA, lighting and technical imaging solutions. In addition, we implemented the equipment control systems using centralized control logic technologies and touch screen interfaces.

In addition to the park in Liverpool, we have also been involved in the implementation of the Angry Birds theme park in Malaysia.

The multi-purpose center Silta is a new building that was completed in the autumn of 2015 and includes a school, kindergarten and library. In this project, Electro Waves was responsible for the equipment in six multi-purpose spaces, the dining hall, stage, gym hall and the INFO-TV system.

Founded in 1872, the National Theater is the oldest Finnish-language theater. The building has six stages, more than a dozen premieres every year and over 30 different performances in its repertoire. In 2014, events at the National Theater drew over 177,000 visitors.

National Theater – revamped speaker system.
The National Theater’s Alcons QR series speaker implementation was complemented by a new middle speaker solution. It was implemented using two (A and B middle speaker system) 7-speaker Alcons LR-7 line-array speaker groups. At the same time, the Alcons Sentinel amplifier equipment was complemented by two Sentinel model 3 4-channel DSP amplifiers, and a new AIControl monitoring/control software was adopted. In addition, signal distribution was implemented using a Dante networked solution. The new middle speaker system excellently covers the floor as well as the balconies, and the entire audience can clearly hear the dialogue/songs of the plays.

National Theater – revamped soundboard system.
The National Theater’s fully served Yamaha PM1D soundboard was replaced with Yamaha’s latest flagship model PM-10 Rivage. The soundboard system consists of a control console, DSP unit and four interface units, of which three have fixed installations and one is in mobile use on stage. The interface units have been networked using a Yamaha Twinlane optical channel solution. The system also includes new Yamaha HY144 Dante adapters with a 144-channel capacity. They are used for transmitting the signal to the amplifiers, the Virtual Sound Check computer and the Q-lab effects computers that have been connected directly through a network interface using the Dante Virtual Sound Card software. The new implementation of the soundboard’s sound processing and networking represents latest digital technology. Electro Waves did the holistic package of design, installation, configuration and adoption for the customer as a turnkey delivery.

Electro Waves implemented L-Fashion Group’s head office building facade lighting, that brings out the building impressively.
