AG Acoustics Revamps Jaypee Institute of Information with CELTO Acoustique

AG Acoustics deploys audiovisiual solution atJaypee Institute
of Information with CELTO Acoustique

Jaypee Business School (JBS) is a constituent of Jaypee Institute of Information Technology (JIIT - Deemed University). The institute has benchmarked itself with the latest content and teaching methodologies across the country. Located in Sec62 NOIDA, JIIT has become a landmark of sorts in NOIDA. Their Auditorium is a monument with a circular shape and huge seating capacity of 2500, which at certain times of the year reaches 3000+, with students and delegates standing at the wings also. 

JBS's previous audio-video system needed an upgrade as the operators were facing challenges with installed systems. The management did not want to compromise on audio or video quality. JBS reached out to Delhi Based Integration Company AG Acoustics (INDIA) PVT LTD. to design a robust and effective AV solution for the Auditorium. 

AG Acoustics is a 20+-year-olds company that forayed into system integration in 2008. AG Acoustics have done systems installation across diverse sectors like education, health, hospitality both in the private and government sector. 

Mr. Piyush Arora, GM – Projects for AG Acoustics, adds, "We have a long-standing relationship with the JAYPEE group. We have done various AV Integration jobs for them at different locations either directly or through our partners. When we heard that JIIT was looking for an upgrade to their existing AV system, we got in touch with the management & technical team. We understood both their requirements and their problems they were facing till now. There were multiple challenges in doing the AV upgrade for this project. The Auditorium is in the central part of the building, with an open structure with an extremely high ceiling and no soundproofing. After analysing the space, we evaluated that a distributed point source system will be the correct design instead of opting for a line array system. In an open space auditorium to avoid reflections, it is necessary to distribute the energy effectively instead of projecting it from a single point. We truly believe that every integration project is unique. The difference between a successful and unsuccessful install starts from the basic design to the stage itself."


After the AG Acoustics technical team evaluation, they decided to use CELTO Acoustique for the Audio component. A central hang of CT15X - 2+2, 2-way full-range multipurpose speakers, with a distributed system of the hugely popular coaxial CELTO iFIX series. The iFIX is the most popular product from CELTO. The device combines all the qualities for a successful install - Pristine sound quality, True Point source - Coaxial with HF compression drivers, birch ply cabinets, multiple mounting options, etc.  

3- iFIX6 & 14-iFIX7 model were installed for side, under & front fills to compliment the 4 - CT15X main speakers. The AG and CELTO engineers, Mr. Bharti & Mr. Sharma, respectively, time-aligned the system using SMART and appropriate delays. Celto installed the CT12s on the stage for stage monitoring applications and VAL audio GL and X series amplifiers to power the entire system.  


For the Visual part of the install, JIIT needed an upgraded projection system. AG team chose a DP - Digital projection solution with a 10,000 lumens Laser projector to do duty for presentations or movie applications for the Auditorium. The projection system was installed under the balcony at the center, using a long-throw lens, with a BARCO click share wireless presentation system. The projection system allows the user to present from anywhere in the venue. 

Mr. Shishir Moondra Chief Manager, JIIT. Commented, "The design of the auditorium is quite complex. It is 'D' shaped, with huge volume, recessed sitting areas, open corridors, hard floor, and low occupancy, which add to poor acoustics making, it a big challenge.

Earlier, at many locations, poor audibility was concerning. We merged our experiences to overcome audible, echo, and acoustic issues of the auditorium by replacing, adding, and upgrading the audio/video system. Now, our Audi occupancy does not affect the clarity of sound, as the old acoustics still play their role effectively, and overall we have a great feeling of satisfaction, Great job Team AGA”.

"The results speak for themselves. Today even when JIIT hosts a gathering of 3000 persons, the AV does flawless duty in terms of both audio and video applications, which include Talks and Seminars, presentations, annual functions, etc. AG Acoustics truly believes in walking the extra mile to go far beyond client expectations." concludes Shishir Moondra.
