Bangkok International Preparatory School, Thailand

The Opportunity

Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School (Bangkok Prep) is one of the top international schools in Thailand. In order to enable staff and students to easily utilize audiovisual devices in the classroom, Bangkok Prep hired Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. to implement a cutting-edge HARMANProfessional AV system that would make it easier for students to hear—no matter where they’re sitting. They also requested a user-friendly touch-panel interface so staff and students can control the system with minimal technical assistance.

The Solution

Mahajak installed JBL SRX715 two-way loudspeakers and an SRX718S satellite subwoofer system to provide comprehensive coverage and extended low-frequency output during live performances. JBLJRX112M two-way stage monitors deliver crystal-clear audio, making it easy for artists to hear themselves during performances. JBL Control 2P C2PS and CONTROL 24CT in-ceiling speakers are used to achieve high-quality sound in enclosed spaces like classrooms and auditoriums. The system is powered using Crown XTi -4000, CDi1000 and XLS402D amplifiers.

An AMX NX-2200 NetLinx NX Integrated Controller and PSR4.4 power supply are used to connect AV devices throughout the facility, while TPC-IPAD software allows users to control the entire system via Apple® mobile devices. A dbx DriveRack 260 loudspeaker management system, AFS224 Advanced Feedback Suppression processor and 231V graphic equalizer are used to ensure that the system sounds its very best. Martin LightJockey 2 lighting control software and M-DMX interface offer control of up to 100 DMX fixtures for creating dynamic, immersive lighting during events.

h3.The Impact

“A simple but dynamic audio solution was required to make a powerful impact on students’ learning,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Director of Project, Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. “Bangkok Prep asked us to install an audio system that would make it easier for students to hear—no matter where they’re sitting. They also requested a user-friendly touch-panel interface so staff and students can control the system with minimal technical assistance. We decided to go with HARMAN Professional products because of their unrivaled flexibility, superior sound quality and intuitive controls.”

“Our aim was to install a contemporary AV system flexible enough to accommodate the evolving styles of learning, said Mrs. Patrada Yomnak, License Holder, Director and Manager, Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School. “We hired Mahajak to design a reliable, future-proof AV system that makes it easy for staff and students to control AV equipment in any room with their personal devices. Fortunately, HARMAN’s diverse portfolio of products are highly intelligible, simple to learn and manageable to support, which fulfilled every criterion of our request.”
