The new Šibenik Convention Center at the Solaris Beach Resort on the Adriatic coast is the first convention centre to be built since the independence of the Croatian state in 1991, and is now the largest in Croatia. The design and installation of the audio and video systems have been handled by Hust d.o.o. using distributed Apart Audio loudspeakers for background music and Community Pro loudspeakers for A/V and conferencing

Šibenik Convention CenterThe Šibenik Convention Center is designed for flexibility, allowing rooms to be divided or combined to adapt the space for different types of events, conventions and exhibitions. With a total of 4,000sq-m of congress space, the centre encompasses 11 individual halls and rooms with an overall capacity for 2,500 people.

In the design of the audio system, Hust added flexibility to the venue with zoning that could easily be switched and combined to match the space configuration used by any event. The central space of Šibenik Convention Center is the main hall. With its movable stage, the main hall holds 1,500 people in theatre mode, 1,000 with banquet facilities and 1,365 in ‘cocktail’ format.

The hall can be configured four ways – as a single room or three independently operating rooms, each with its own motorised screen and high-power Epson projector. Each of the three independent rooms has a distributed audio system comprising eight Community high-output, two-way D8 ceiling loudspeakers, with D10Sub ceiling-mount subwoofers extending their response and adding low frequency impact. An additional pair of V2-8 8-inch compact full-range two-way loudspeakers is used to focus the sound on the screen. When the hall is used as a single room, the individual sound systems combine into one.

To provide system control, Hust installed a Biamp TesiraForté, with the Tesira TEC-1s Ethernet control unit and multiple PCs providing a simple, intuitive interface. Each operator’s user name and password sets their authorised level of control. Apart REVAMP amplifiers provide the power for the loudspeakers throughout the complex.

‘Šibenik Convention Center is a very prestigious new venue for Croatia,’ says Tomislav Stubičan of Hust. ‘We are very pleased to have provided it with a sound system that is a combination of exceptional quality, versatility and modern design.’
