Underscoring the performance and reliability of AKG conferencing systems, the highly prestigious SWX Stock Exchange selected AKG's GN 30 E 5PIN Gooseneck Microphones, CK 31 Capsules and H 600 shock-mounts for deployment. The installation used several different loudspeaker systems strategically positioned to optimize the acoustics in the glass-walled conference room known as the “crystal palace.”
The system was completed by Erwin Herzog of Kilchenmann and used 33 AKG GN 30 E 5PIN Gooseneck microphones, 33 AKG CK 31 microphone capsules, 33 AKG H 600 shock mounts, and a retractable column with a 360-degree loudspeaker in the center of the room.
“We chose AKG products for their high quality, high gain before feedback, and flexibility,” Herzog said. “Using AKG products, we managed to hand over the project on time in spite of a close deadline and still fulfilled all of the client's requirements and wishes. We even kept the price appreciably lower than the budget.”
Although the Swiss Exchange is firmly rooted in Switzerland's financial center, the SWX pursues a strategy focused on international activities. The seven-year-old system they had before the installation was inadequate from the start and in need of a complete upgrade, from the microphones to the control system. An AMX touch panel was added for controls, and new loudspeakers were put in for multimedia presentations. With the new system in place, orders can be executed, cleared, settled, and confirmed with a single click.
“The multimedia conference room they have now gives them the capability to do everything they need to do and more,” continued Herzog. “The combination of speakers with the AKG microphones optimizes the sound for every presentation, and the AWX control system links everything together perfectly.”
