Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Invests RM1.8 million In AV Digital Upgrades
|In line with continuous efforts to enhance the delegate and guest experience when attending events at the facility and to maintain her reputation as one of the most technologically-advanced venues in the country, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has invested RM1.8 million on 190 new digital speakers and digital audio processors.|
According to the Centre's AV Manager, Norbiha Ismail, the investment "reflects our commitment to continuously upgrade as a means to enriching the client experience and to stay ahead of the curve in today's increasingly technology-driven world."
Elaborating on the new equipment, Norbiha says, "the digital speakers will facilitate clearer projection of voice and sound due to better audio distribution while the digital audio processors will result in increased audio performance.
"The digital audio processors are specialised microprocessors that have been optimised for the fast operational needs of digital signal processing. With this, our clients are assured their audio requests will be smooth and accurate. In addition, digitalising will improve our monitoring and control mechanism and in turn, help increase productivity levels."
The 190 new digital speakers and digital audio processors are in the Plenary Theatre, Plenary Hall, Conference Halls 1, 2 and 3, Banquet Hall and Ballrooms 1 & 2. All audio processors in the Exhibition Halls have also transitioned to digital with the existing speakers maintained in analog format.
