Videoworks takes us “behind the scenes” of its onboard systems

-CRN 74 mt. M/Y Cloud9 - THE SYSTEM IN DETAIL

-A #superyacht WITH AUDIO/VIDEO, HOME AUTOMATION, ENTERTAINMENT, LIGHTING AND IT SYSTEMS FULLY CUSTOMIZED BY VIDEOWORKS

Among the ten superyachts on display at the last 2017 Monaco Yacht Show equipped with #videoworks entertainment systems, the one on board the 74m #crnmycloud9 was probably the most interesting vessel introduced during the last show, impressing the audience for the high level of customization and easy-to-use approach of its audio/video, home automation, entertainment, lighting and IT equipment.

Nowadays, having an onboard domotic, audio/video and IT system represents one of the #superyacht owners’ and guests’ main requests. Watching a soccer game on a large high-resolution monitor, listening to great music thanks to speakers that can guarantee a high-fidelity sound, having a party, controlling lights and curtains, managing multimedia contents and temperature and being able to safely and reliably surf the internet have all become must-haves of modern system integration.

The challenge launched by #crn shipyard and designers was to have very good sound quality and pressure without impacting the installation. #crn and #videoworks came up with the solution: using the Revolution Acoustics SSP6 multi-ducers.

This high-tech and unique product can be embedded onto a various range of materials, as it allows large surfaces to act as a speaker, making the surface vibrate and creating a smooth 3D audio effect. The know-how of #videoworks has been crucial in selecting the proper DSP audio processor, capable of equalizing the sound according to the surface on which the speakers are placed. Hence, in Cloud9, four units of SSP6 were connected to aluminum surfaces of the port and starboard side furniture of the pool, creating a good listening area with no aesthetical impact.

The Cloud9 pool has LUTRON RGB lights that may be controlled with an iPad, as, of course, with all of the home automation, audio/visual and entertainment systems. The model of the two pool lights is SEA VISION SV14 LED, controlled by a complete LUTRON system installed and integrated by #videoworks.

Videoworks also developed a well designed external cinema with video projector, cloth and 5+1 speakers in the aft’s Owner's deck external cockpit and a cinema area in the main deck salon with a 120’’ Stuart screen and a 4K video projector. Here are a few details:

Stewart Cloth Motorized Screen: A retractable screen fortified for the outdoors and yachts. It won’t ripple or flap in windy or wavy conditions and is positioned in the aft’s Owner's deck external cockpit.
