Vacationing at Los Alamos beach in Torremolinos, guests of the SMY Costa del Sol will now enjoy music in the hotel’s public areas, thanks to the installation of a new sound system by Servicios Integrales M3.

SMY Costa del SolRequiring a sound system to ‘reflect the quality ethos of its accommodation and facilities’, the hotel also needed it to cover a large area including lobby, restaurant, restrooms and outdoor terrace. The Malaga-based installation company was chosen for the project on the strength of its A/V knowledge and its reputation for exceptional results.

Servicios Integrales M3 turned to a selection of Work Pro speakers, amplifiers, control and multiplayer units, having had previous experience of Equipson’s Work Pro range and been happy with their quality and performance. ‘This was a large installation that involved 90 IC 6 Pro ceiling speakers, which we fitted in all of the common areas,’ says Servicios Integrales M3 General Director. Jose María Montero.

‘On the terrace we installed a Work Pro SL 210 A line array system with an SL 218 SA subwoofer, which delivers the power and intelligibility the hotel wanted. Overall, our brief was to ensure great sound quality and great aesthetics by installing well designed speakers that were in keeping with the hotel’s décor.’

As well the loudspeaker system, Servicios Integrales M3 installed two Work Pro multiplayers, a Mark Mix U24 digital mixer and a transmission system comprising Equipson BlueLine Digital products including BLS2 SD MkII stereo AoIP senders and BLR 2 Lite MkII stereo over AoIP receivers.

SMY Costa del Sol‘Alongside a lack of quality and poor intelligibility, the other key problem we needed to solve was poor control,’ Montero adds. ‘Equipson’s BlueLine products were the perfect solution as they are simple to install. Because they are based on streaming using Ethernet they make it much easier to control the output and volume of each speaker so that different audio sources can be played in different areas.’

Servicios Integrales M3 was also asked to specify a system that would allow the hotel to control lighting for its live shows and discos on the terrace. ‘This needed to work remotely and also have a time programmer for general architectural lighting,’ Montero says.

The solution chosen was a Work Pro LightShark LS-Core DMX-based hardware lighting console which offers customizable custom scene buttons that can be triggered from any smart device via a web browser. The system also embeds an internal scene scheduler so that thousands of scenes can be automatically triggered at the desired time, date etc. Able to control up to eight DMX universes, LS-Core is intended for A/V installers and system integrators because it is a plug and play solution that is incredibly easy to use and doesn’t require special software – a web browser is all users need to have complete control of the console.

SMY Costa del Sol’s new sound and lighting systems were installed in time for this summer’s holiday season, and both hotel staff and guests now enjoy high-quality audio to complement contemporary décor inspired by the colours of the Mediterranean.
