Sheraton Kuwait upgrades conference facilities with Sennheiser

The Sheraton Kuwait has upgraded to the latest wireless conferencing system from Sennheiser. Implemented across the property’s two ballroom-style conference facilities as well as its many meeting rooms of varied sizes, the audio specialist’s ADN-W system delivers audio conferencing with the convenience of secure wireless connectivity.

Commenting on the upgrade, Eng. Mohamed Monieb, Maintenance Manager at Sheraton Kuwait explained: “Our hotel’s world-class facilities meet the needs of very large to extremely intimate gatherings and the wireless conferencing system allows the equipment to also be ‘right-sized’ exactly as per customer requirements. Prior to selecting Sennheiser, we conducted a test between ADN-W, our existing system and another manufacturer’s solution and this not only demonstrated vastly superior sound quality, but also convincingly addressed our concerns around interference.” It is the ADN-W’s ability to hop between frequencies in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz ranges that makes this performance possible, the release stated.

Commenting on the project, Ryan Burr, Head of Technical Sales & Application Engineering, System Solutions at Sennheiser Middle East said: “The requirement from the Sheraton was quite complex as they wanted to be able to use the system in multiple rooms throughout their premises. Through meticulous planning and modelling, we settled on permanently locating the antennas and control units in three of the rooms and then providing a floating system with accompanying wireless microphone units that can be easily moved between meeting rooms as required.”

Sennheiser, working together with its long-standing partner and distributor in Kuwait, aDawliah Electronics, commissioned the system and on the day the installation was completed itself, the Sheraton utilised the system for a high-profile event attended by the Ministers of Trade and Industry from across the Arabian region.

The following Sennheiser solutions have been deployed at the Sheraton Kuwait:
2 x ADN CU1 Central Unit
8 x ADN-W AM Antenna Module
2 x ADN-W C1 Chairman Unit
60 x ADN-W D1 Delegate Unit
62 x ADN-W MIC 15-50 50cm (long) gooseneck
