How They Did It: The Varvara

Jun 14, 2018

When Luxury Engineering was brought in to work on a 35-meter yacht moored in Italy, the requests were very clear. The client wanted a technology-filled environment where he could hold meetings with business partners and entertain friends. 

Luxury Engineering selected a Creston system that could be controlled from both an iPad and Crestron remotes. The control interface included the ability to operate multiple zones, including six zones of satellite TV, Apple TV, a media server, 10 audio zones with AirPlay function, and a DolbyDigital multichannel sound system with a karaoke function.

The karaoke function was the most difficult to integrate into the overall system, as the client wanted each deck to be able to select its own composition. The integrator opted to transmit the AV streams through separate processors using a Crestron matrix system. For stable operation of the wireless microphones, additional transmitters were installed in technical hatches.

The end result was an easily adaptable system that allows the client to scale and adjust based on the current needs – whether it’s watching one of the more than 600 movies that Luxury Engineering programmed into the media server on the main deck or in an individual cabin, hosting business presentations that can be viewed on one of the multiple flat panels, or holding a karaoke competition.
