ALA Equipment Company installed a state-of-the-art JBL Professional audio system at Parklane Hotel to provide guests with a premier hotel experience.
Parklane Hotel is a luxury resort that features luxury accommodation
s, from lifestyle suites to private villas. Formerly Le Meridien Hotel, the building was purchased in 2015 by Marriott, who commissioned a complete overhaul of all communications and A/V technology. Parklane Hotel hired ALA Equipment Company to renovate key facilities in the hotel, including the Diamond Ballroom, Park Room, Meeting Rooms, Kids Club, as well as other ancillary areas and guest suites. To deliver a world-class experience, ALA installed a JBL Professional audio system featuring JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown Amplifiers, BSS Signal Processors and AKG Microphones.
ALA selected the Soundcraft Vi3000 sound mixing console for FOH and monitor consoles with MADI Stage Boxes. The Soundcraft Vi3000 features extensive rear panel connectivity for a full range of analog or digital inputs and outputs, as well as 74 industry-standard plug-ins, making it an ideal mixing and monitoring console. There is also a pair of Soundcraft Signature 12 analog desks for auxiliary use, which incorporate Soundcraft’s iconic Ghost mic preamps to deliver high headroom, wide dynamic range and exceptional resolution. ALA provided AKG DSR800 wireless mics with Dante connectivity and integrated digital signal processing, including a low-cut filter, three-band equalizer, compressor and limiter.
Outside the hotel meeting rooms, ALA installed a complement of Samsung Commercial Displays connected to a MagicInfo server, allowing users to display information on the monitor. Inside, Samsung LED displays offer video conferencing capabilities and Samsung’s portable Flip display provides an interactive touchscreen digital display for easy collaboration. JBL Control 47HC High Ceiling speakers and subs minimise room reflections, making audio easier to hear. AKG wireless microphones provide freedom of movement and can connect to multiple rooms.
The game-changing technology renovations took six years and millions of dollars, ultimately transforming Parklane Hotel into a part of Marriott’s Luxury Collection.
“This installation has really put Cyprus on the map,” said Theofilos Lakkas, Food & Beverage Director at Parklane. “Technology wise it ranks alongside hotels in Las Vegas.”
This project has been recognised globally by winning an Inavation Award for best hospitality project 2020.
