Videoworks have revealed a series of on board high-tech solutions including the 'Slim Audio Master' (pictured below), the 'Mover wall' with integrated speakers, and the interactive 'Party Pack', at Monaco Yacht Show 2019.
According to Videoworks, “The excellence of the audio systems that, on the one hand, deliver pure, high-quality sound reproduction and, on the other, are suitable for an onboard party, have become a crucial aspect of the integration of onboard systems.” At Monaco Yacht Show, the world première of ‘SAM’ (Slim Audio Master) illustrated how this rack has been created to optimise size and space-saving on board as well as enhance the system’s performance.
Designed by the R&D deparments of Videoworks and of Leaff, and manufactured by Leaff exclusively for the naval sector of Videoworks, SAM controls up to 16 audio outputs and allows to calibrate sound in every individual setting while guaranteeing space-saving. “SAM can, among other things, equalise sound in every individual environment, optimising sound reproduction,” noted Videoworks.
Also on display will be ‘Mover’ produced by Tuscany-based company Power Soft. Mover was initially designed for the world of video gaming and home theatre, using vibrations to simulate sounds and movement effects. Through the integration with speakers by Videoworks, attendees of Monaco Yacht Show will hear its full potential of producing sound from different materials.
For designers and owners with entertainment at the forefront of their vessel’s purpose, Videoworks will also present the ‘Party Pack’, integrating ad hoc systems designed for the world of yachting. Specifically, the audio system has small and elegantly designed K-array speakers and subwoofers with an output up to 110 dB. The sound is then enhanced by am RGB lighting system in the ceiling that will be synchronised with the sound. The finishing touch of the ‘Party Pack’ is the inclusion of a new generation Samsung QLED 98” 8k TV screen.
Lastly, Videoworks will display the result of their circadian rhythm lighting system, which reproduces the temperature and tone of sunlight inside the yacht at every time of the day, and has been aptly named ‘Sun In A Room’. “The relationship between human beings and nature is one the essential aspects of going to sea, even when sailing on a megayacht,” said Videoworks. This solution reportedly increases the well-being of guests on board in a natural way, and visitors to their stand at Monaco Yacht Show will be able to experience the change in sunlight in a few minutes thanks to a special LED-lighting panel made up of 50x50 tiles.
A selection of yachts are on display at Monaco Yacht Show which feature Videoworks’ audio/video, domotics, entertainment, lighting and network systems, including, Columbus Yachts’ 79.5m M/Y Dragon (pictured above), Baglietto’s 55m M/Y Severin’s, Rossinavi’s 48m M/Y Polaris and 78.8m CRN 135.
