The Deventer theater sound even better!

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…

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.

SIAP selected for prestigious project in Lithuania

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.

SIAP make its début in Scotland!

10-02-2015
Since the first week of February The Byre Theatre in Scottish university town St. Andrews is full of enthusiasm and happiness. The first SIAP system in Scotland is commissioned and put into use. After a successful demonstration in the Amsterdam De La Mar Theatre for the university’s musical director and the concert administrator(August 2014), both well-trained musical listeners and performers as well (orchestra conductor, organist), the university gave the green light to purchase a SIAP system. Installation work and tuning the system took a total of only three weeks. Especially tuning – which included testing by a choice of critical professional musicians – was a very pleasant experience and progressed with highly acclaimed success. The theatre from itself has a very short Reverberation Time of 0.7 second which makes it only suitable for amplified performances and drama. After all it was built for that particular purpose in 2001. Lees meer

SIAP Mark IV installed in Theatre Agnietenhof Tiel!

31-10-2014
As an integral part of the refurbishment of the highly appreciated theatre, a SIAP system is installed in October 2014. Thanks to the sophisticated acoustic working principle a well thought system design could be integrated in the architectural concept. The challenge (the request) was to create a system where no loudspeakers are placed in the beautiful new walls in the hall, in order not to affect the visual design. This is successfully done by mounting the speakers at specific angles (invisible in the ceiling) which nevertheless results in all proper aspects of spatial experience. The system is inaugurated 12th November with Bizet’s famous opera: The Pearl Fishers. The SIAP Opera Preset transformed the 850 seat main auditorium into a perfect opera house. During this tour the Tartarstan National Opera Company experienced in a significant number of theatres the positive contribution that a SIAP opera acoustic has on artists and audiences.

Theatre De Agnietenhof chooses SIAP!

25-06-2014
Theatre De Agnietenhof in the city of Tiel, The Netherlands, is undergoing substantial remodelling this summer and autumn; there will be a lot of changes which bring the Theatre even closer to their visitors. Obviously much attention is given to the acoustics since this aspect is an integral and important part of the total experience. The SIAP system design will provide musical and homogeneous sound image throughout the whole room. With variable acoustics SIAP supports speech intelligibility (unamplified stage performances – drama/play), acoustic performances (opera, chamber orchestra, symphonic orchestra (classic) (solo) concerts, weak soloists etc.). The system will also support Theatre and Film sound (Surround).

SIAP MARK IV installed in Theater aan de Parade!

07-11-2013
In the first week of October the new SIAP system was installed in Theater aan de Parade in Den Bosch. In addition to all of the acoustic presets (from operetta 1.2 seconds to 4.0 seconds Big Church), the theatre is also equipped with voice support (speech intelligibility). An artist / speaker at the scene gets support when speaking. The artist / speaker experiences that the system “helps” which results in speaking easily with less effort. The voice is just “slightly lifted” but sounds faithfully and natural while maintaining localization. Lees meer
