ISHCMC, Vietnam

The Opportunity:

In order to ensure exceptional audio quality and intuitive control for musical productions on the stage of the 350 seat theater, ISHCMC needed a premium audio, lighting and control solution.

The Solution:

ISHCMC hired Ba Sao Investment to install a complete HARMAN networked AV system made up of solutions by JBL, Crown, AKG, BSS, Martin and AMX. To ensure premium sound reinforcement for productions in ISHCMC’s new theater, Ba Sao installed a range of JBL AE Series loudspeakers. Compact AC25 and AC18/95 speakers combine high output with high fidelity, while AM5212/00 two-way speakers provide excellent coverage, adjustable waveguide and low distortion. ASB6112 18-inch subwoofers offer the extended low-frequency bandwidth needed to produce an impactful theater audio experience. For critical listening and mixing tasks in the theater, the team included JBL LSR305 studio monitors and AKG K240 MkII headphones.

The entire system is powered by Crown XLi amplifiers and networked via BSS Soundweb London BLU-100, BLU-BOB2 and BLU-DA signal processors for unmatched sound quality, reliability and user control. Ba Sao included a Martin M2GO HD integrated PC-based lighting controller and a range of AMX encoders, decoders and transceivers to give ISHCMC’s staff intuitive control over the sophisticated AV and lighting system.

The Impact:

“As a committed International Baccalaureate school, ISHCMC encourages a balance between academic achievement and holistic development,” said the spokesperson for ISHCMC. “There are several opportunities for students to develop skills in many areas, including leadership, arts, sports, culture and outdoor recreation. As part of that commitment, we wanted to make sure our students had access to the best equipment, while learning the technical and artistic aspects of theater production. The HARMAN system installed by Ba Sao meets our strict requirements, delivering a stunning AV experience worthy of our school’s high standards.”

“ISHCMC’s administrators wanted high-quality audio and lighting solutions with seamless control for their new theater building,” said Nguyen Khac Anh, CEO, Ba Sao Investment. “The new HARMAN Professional system ensures state-of-the-art quality and intuitive control for productions at ISHCMC, and the staff couldn’t be happier with the results. We consistently rely on HARMAN products for all of our audio installations because they represent the gold standard in AV solutions in terms of quality, versatility, reliability and performance.”
