Oslo, Norway (July 3, 2014)—The University of Oslo’s main Campus Medica building, home to the offices of many of the school’s scientists and doctors, recently installed a Renkus-Heinz Iconyx IC Live digitally steered arrays to its 350-seat lecture hall.
The system was designed by Cowi Consultaing Group, led by Geir Kristoffersen, with the help of Norwegian pro AV distributors Benum AS, and installed by Caverion Norway. It features IC Live ICL-FR Dual digitally steered arrays to the left and right of a large video screen, with each array topped by a single IC215S dual 15-inch subwoofer.
"The Iconyx arrays enabled us to focus the sound solidly on the audience area, and steer it away from the walls and ceiling," explains Sverre Jøssund, Product Manager for Benum AS. "And the Iconyx form factor is much more low profile than a traditional line array, so it doesn't create sightline issues for any of the seats."
An Allen and Heath matrix mixer handles the inputs from 10 channels of wired and wireless Shure microphones, with Crestron control.
