Superyacht Technology News Editor, Joanna Palmer was delighted to spend time with Videoworks and find out about their new offerings, launched at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The excellence of audio systems that, on the one hand, deliver pure, high-quality sound reproduction and, on the other, are suitable for an onboard party, has become a crucial aspect of the integration of onboard entertainment technology systems.
Slim Audio Master: Videoworks
The Monaco Yacht Show was the location chosen to launch the Videoworks Slim Audio Master (SAM), the innovative rack created to optimise size and space-saving on board and to enhance the system’s performance. Jointly designed by the R&D departments of Videoworks and of Leaff and manufactured by the latter company exclusively for the naval sector of Videoworks, SAM controls up to 16 audio outputs and allows calibration of sound perfectly in every individual setting while guaranteeing space-saving. SAM is an absolute breakthrough in the audio amplifier industry offering unprecedented equalised sound in all environments, optimising sound reproduction.
Mover: The Hidden Speaker System
The SAM system at the Videoworks stand was also used with another new product Mover, the aluminium wall with integrated speakers, now offered in a new configuration that allows reproduction of low and medium-high frequency sounds. Mover, produced by the Tuscany-based company Power Soft, was first designed for the world of video gaming and home theatre and can use vibrations to simulate sounds and movement effects.
Through the integration with speakers designed by Videoworks, it can now produce sound from different materials. This means that for those of us who dislike the visibility of speakers that they can be hidden behind metal or glass walls, which could be disguised as artwork or a beautiful feature.
Party Pack: On-Board Entertainment
Videoworks also presented a ‘Party Pack’ that integrates the audio system which has small and elegantly designed K-array speakers and subwoofers that can deliver an excellent performance – their output is up to 110 dB. The sound will be enhanced by an RGB lighting system in the ceiling that will be synchronised with the sound. The Party Pack is completed by a new generation Samsung QLED 98″ 8k TV screen.
