OPTIMUS | Markets
OPTIMUS provides complete PA system solutions for all types of facilities, from large venues such as airports, hospital complexes or railway stations, to smaller facilities such as schools, petrol stations or homes for the elderly.
Railway station PA systems not only emit low-volume background music in station foyers, common areas and stores, but also play an essential role in broadcasting announcements of train arrivals and departures. Adverse acoustics on platforms, where noise levels are high and variable, require PA systems based on studies and simulations in order to determine the right type, number, location and power of speakers, and the audio processing necessary for proper intelligibility.
OPTIMUS systems not only fulfil these requirements, but also integrate with other systems in the station, using the infrastructure of the data network if necessary, and forming part of the global safety, evacuation and voice alarm system.
In industry, public address systems provide important services, such as voice alarm, which facilitates an orderly and safe evacuation of the premises, or time signalling for shift changes. In addition, it provides other more common ones such as the broadcast of music in offices and visitor areas, or the location and general notices or by areas. Many of the sound points are installed outdoors and in aggressive environments, they must provide a high sound pressure due to the large dimensions of the spaces, they must meet ATEX certifications and have high IP degrees of protection.
The acoustics of tunnels require specialist solutions for evacuation and voice-alarm systems, both to ensure the intelligibility of the messages broadcast and to overcome the ambient noise and inherent confusion in these situations. The length of tunnels also requires the power stages to be distributed and linked via the network in order to synchronise the broadcasting of announcements and process audio signals with filters and delays.
Penitentiary Centres require multiple public address, voice alarm and intercom systems for the safe management of the prison and the flow of staff, inmates and visitors. These are complex infrastructures, with different needs that include inmates' cells and their common areas, visitor posts, administrative offices, or care for relatives and visitors. Often they include infirmary, nursery, workshop, school, hospitalization module, place of worship ... each space with its specific requirements.
OPTIMUS has multiple solutions that are perfectly adapted to each of the needs of prisons, using the data network infrastructure if necessary, and forming part of the global security, evacuation and voice alarm system.
PA systems at airports allow the broadcasting of live and recorded messages with high intelligibility to concourses, corridors and waiting rooms. These are units with selection of multiple PA zones, with scheduled announcements which are monitored from several control desks. The PA system is integrated with other airport systems, including flight and security management systems, and plays a key role in the event of an alarm, facilitating evacuations following the pre-defined emergency procedure.
In hospitals, healthcare complexes, clinics and nursing homes, PA and intercom systems are used to meet special needs. In addition to the mandatory PA security systems for evacuation in the event of fire, they also need to address tasks such as the location of staff members, information for visitors, local announcements in consulting rooms, intercom functions in operating theatres and X-ray rooms and nurse-patient communication.
The OPTIMUS catalogue offers all the systems needed to equip a healthcare facility, ranging from nursing homes to large hospital complexes.
In hotels, sound systems provide guests different experiences: music and announcements in the lobby, corridors, bar, terrace and restaurants, connection of personal equipment to matrix-type systems in function rooms and meeting rooms, specific musical environments for spas, gyms and swimming pools, customised sound in guest rooms... all of which is integrated with the compulsory PA voice-alarm system.I n addition, the signalling and video intercommunication systems allow you to identify and communicate with guests at entrances to certain areas like the car park, spa or gym.
Department Stores, Hardware Store, Sport Stores…. are generally areas with a large influx of public that require intelligible broadcasting, either live or pre-recorded, for commercial advertisement, informative notes, or alarm messages. Normally the hall has a very high roof and it is required a kind of speaker with acoustic wide spread & high sound pressure. Moreover, the Public Address System must cover other zones, such as outdoor areas, car park areas, loading and offloading goods areas... dealing with the broadcasting to either one, several or all zones.
OPTIMUS has equipment and systems for the control of zones via audio matrix (with a configurable number of inputs and outputs) and/or microphone desks, and for the sending of messages, live from the microphone desks, MP3 prerecorded with remote activation vis contacts, from SIP telephony through an interface, scheduling of messages for daily deals, advertisement, turn shift... and controlling up to 50 messages and 8 zones, for example, with the Scheduling Messages Module
