The New York State Senate Chamber

CHALLENGE:
New York State needed a state of the art control system and upgraded system performance to supply clear audio to the Senate Chamber, media, and internet broadcasts. This historical chamber required new microphones, new speakers, digital processors, and most importantly, loudspeakers that were virtually invisible. The project also required complete architectural renovation of the brass microphone plates at each member's desk. Full redundancy and ease of use were also critical.

SOLUTION:
Dalbec designed a state-of-the-art system that allows the Senate operator to control all 52 microphones, chamber volume, and recording functions from a single LCD touchscreen. All brass plates were renovated to strict architectural guidelines and equipped with a custom shock mounting. The system has several levels of redundancy to ensure that The State will be able to conduct sessions under a variety of adverse conditions. Dalbec designed and programmed the Crestron/Crown IQ control system that allows touch screen control of LED collared Beyer Microphones at each member's desk. All speakers were custom designed, built, and finished to perfectly fit in the natural shadow of the granite balconies. Full restoration of all brass plates incorporated new shock mounts while meeting architectural preservation standards. The system was designed, built, and tested during the 2004 break between legislative sessions. When session was called prior to the scheduled contract date, Dalbec was able to accelerate our work schedule and finish the installation to accommodate the owner.
