Galveston, TX (September 24, 2014)—A Biamp Systems Audia digital audio system, based around four AudiaFlex units, is being used at the restored Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier amusement park.
Reopened in 2012, Texas' Pleasure Pier revamped its attractions after destruction by Hurricane Ike. At 1,300 feet long and 125 feet wide, the Gulf-side pier is now the home to rides, retail stores and restaurants. To provide distributed DSP audio across the expansive pier, integrator Chills & Thrills, Inc. (CTI) used the Biamp AudiaFlex digital audio platform to provide pier-wide paging, background music, prerecorded message playback, and more.
Using Biamp AudiaFlex units installed with CobraNet cards, operators at the Pleasure Pier distribute audio among multiple components including speakers, microphones, and between Audia devices across the entire location.
