SIAP wins tendering DAICEC project Mumbai, India!

21-11-2018
SIAP has won the tender for prestigious DAICEC (Dhirubai Ambani International Convention and Exhibition Center) in Mumbai, India. This project, developed by Reliance Industries Limited and won by main contractor Samsung C & T is in full swing and is expected to be completed Spring next year. This project includes a congress and exhibition center, cultural square, apartments, an office building and a very luxurious theatre / auditorium, based on the design of the Dolby theatre in Hollywood. The hall has a capacity of 2,000 seats and is used multifunctional: live performances (theater), amplified and unamplified concerts, cinema and congress purposes. This project involves a total investment of more than $ 678 million. SIAP will deploy the latest Mark V-64 / Dante processor which, together with the Dolby Atmos system, will provide the room with all possible acoustic wishes that are conceivable. The design comprises almost 160 loudspeakers and all microphones will be brought to the correct positions via automated electronic cable reelers, depending on the usage situation. This way there are no microphones in sight and / or projection lines during film performances.

Cultural centre ‘t Spectrum chooses SIAP!

20-08-2018
In September the interior of the brand newly built cultural centre will be largely completed. Part of this special hall (including daylight from two sides) is the SIAP system that seamlessly works together with Dolby Digital Surround. Via this beautiful solution, it is possible to switch electronically between film and (variable) acoustics for performances. This multifunctional hall will be mainly used for theater and film performances, music performances and is also suitable for a wide range of other activities. The first performance is planned for October 2018!

Theater Markant upgrades to the new SIAP Mark V processor!

03-07-2018
Theater Markant, located in Uden,  has had the first piano concerto with acoustics support of the new SIAP Mark V processor on Sunday, 1st of July! Both, players and technical manager and also the piano tuner were impressed. As for years, the SIAP theater has variable acoustics, starting in 1997 with the then Mark III Processor. In 2005 this was followed up by the Mark IV and now, 14 years later the Mark V makes it way to the Theater. In the new season (beginning September a.s.) there will be an introduction of the new processor. For theater Markant this is a friendly but valuable upgrade of the system. All amplifiers, loudspeakers and microphones were almost all good at inspection and did not need to be replaced. With this, only the processor and the control panel had to be replaced which was a cost effective upgrade. In addition to variable acoustics, ambiance and surround / routing functionalities, it is expected that an electronic orchestra room…read more

A beautiful commission in Theater Helmond!

15-02-2018
On the 13th of February, the commission of the new SIAP system was a fact. This was initiated with a large choir and the acoustics sounded in its full glory. With a modest 2.0 seconds preset (concert hall acoustics) up to 4.0 seconds (large church acoustics) exuberant experiments were carried out. One day later, all registers of the organ were pulled open and the large church acoustics (5.0 seconds reverberation time) was activated as this former church originally sounded, before being transformed into a theater. The system has two separate microphones for the organ that evenly receive the organ sound. Now that the acoustics are proper, this organ will be taken care of within the foreseeable future to put all mechanical and pneumatic parts back in order. In addition to all variable acoustics, routing and surround possibilities, the former church can also keep (original) organ concerts with the magisterial organ which is part of the church since 1948. Moreover, the theater can call itself unique because they are the only theater in the Netherlands with a play organ ( with accompanying acoustics!) and with 13 registers which can even be expanded. ‘All sorts of exciting combinations between organ music and performing arts are conceivable’, says city organist Jan van de Laar with a look into the future.

Theater ‘t Speelhuis in kerkgebouw kiest voor SIAP!

09-08-2017
The former Church in Helmond (Onze-Lieve Vrouwekerk) offered temporary housing for the burned theater ‘t Speelhuis (December, 29th, 2011) from 2013 until the end of April, 2017. Meanwhile, the final re-destination is in full swing and it is unique. The former church is a national monument and remains in its original state, that is, all facilities and additions (construction) to make a theater of this church are reversible. Originally, this church – equipped with a large organ – has a reverberation time of 5.0 seconds, which has been reduced to 1.1 second (theater acoustics) for the current theater goal. In order to be able to program versatility and provide the organ with the original reverberation time of 5.0 seconds, SIAP’s electronic variable acoustics has been chosen. In addition to variable acoustics for the stage, we implement variable acoustics for organ and install a speech enhancement system that is integral part of the acoustic system (during speech the acoustics will be reduced for better intelligibility). The opening date is provisionally scheduled for December 1, 2017. For photos:

NH Kerk Wijk en Aalburg kiest voor SIAP!

03-08-2017
The Dutch Reformed Church in Wijk and Aalburg has a completely new integrated solution for variable acoustics and speech amplification! Since 1972, the church has a fantastic beautiful organ. Over time, the acoustics of this centuries-old church have unfortunately been partially lost. (Building history, such as repair of war damage). Both the beautiful organ as well as the choir, instrumentalists and congregational singers were not optimally treated in their right(acoustically), sounding too “dry” due to lack of reverberation (1.0 sec at a full church). As a result, it is decided to “restore” the acoustics as best as possible, and once again all the musicians and communities get the fine (acoustic) experience that makes the visit to the church extra valuable. Various presets are made from which one can choose (1.5 – 2.0 – 3.0 – 4.0 and 5.0 seconds): to any customizable, which is, variable acoustics. However, the SIAP system installed here is much more than that: it is a system that provides high-quality voice enhancement, music playback and variable acoustics. The speech enhancement is an integral part of the installation. The beautiful and special is that speech amplification and SIAP acoustics go hand in hand. Simply put, this works like this: Read more

Deventer Schouwburg klinkt nóg beter!

24-03-2016
In week 12, the Deventer Municipal Theatre got their renewed SIAP system installed. After more than twenty years of reliable operation, the system is now acoustically and technically fully up to date. The renewed acoustic sounds very good indeed. Within a couple of weeks we will do a fine-tune session in conjunction with the “Stichting Kamermuziek Deventer” (Chamber Music Thrust). A special preset will be created for them which will result in an acoustic ambiance that suits the best for the type of music and the musicians combo on stage. Besides the 10 different acoustic presets (from 1.0 until 5.0 seconds reverberation time extension) there are “surround presets” available for a wide range of effects. To be continued…

Deventer Schouwburg gaat voor upgrade SIAP

16-02-2016
Currently there is a lot of maintenance and renewal going on in the Deventer Schouwburg. The SIAP system will be refreshed after 20 years of loyal service and among other things we will install a new processor, microphones and control panel. Within a couple of weeks the system will be completely re-tuned and at the end of tuning we will have a special session for fine tuning, in cooperation with the Chamber Music Foundation Deventer.

SIAP debuteert in Litouwen!

09-12-2015
SIAP has successfully commissioned the comprehensive SIAP system and therewith optimized and enhanced the acoustics for the new “Palangos Koncertu Salé”! The hall is now equipped with variable acoustics which is fully interchangeable between 1.0 and 5.0 seconds, divided in 14 presets. During the last tuning days much local musicians joined the musical fine tuning sessions. Everybody was enthusiastic and experienced a very comfortable support from the acoustics. The spectators enjoyed obvisciously on the last day when there was a “brass band competition” which was organized to be approved by the committee of the European Brass Band Association.

SIAP gekozen voor prestigieus project in Litouwen

28-09-2015
Project : Palangos vasaros estrada, Palanga (Lithuania)
End of this year the newly built multipurpose theatre/concert hall will be opened in the lively is a busy sea-side resort of Palanga, with its famous Baltic Sea beach. This renewing architectural design replaces the old “Kurhaus”, which became too small. The seating capacity of the fan shaped auditorium is 2,500 distributed over the main floor (11-row stalls) and the 26-row balcony, plus a side-balcony left and right. All seats are oriented frontally to the stage for optimum sight lines. Only a small number of seats is under the modest balcony. The stage in accommodated in a stage house/fly tower. The natural acoustic of the auditorium is designed to achieve optimum conditions for amplified sound (speech and music) through a front-of-house sound reinforcement system (FOH). For the other – equally important – unamplified performances the SIAP system is selected to provide the variable acoustics for chamber music, opera, classical ballet, chamber orchestra, symphony orchestra and choir music, etc. In this prestigious project we are working intensively and exclusively with (loudspeakers from) L ‘Acoustics.
