Innovative technologies, new connections, intelligent environments, 3D sound and increasingly complex onboard systems: these are the keywords for Videoworks at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show (September 26-29).
EXPERIENCING THE EVOLUTION OF DOMOTICS IN THE EMOTIONAL ROOM
In a world where use of onboard audio/video systems and networks has become very important for owners and guests, Videoworks continues to demonstrate its ability to innovate. Intelligent environments are increasingly being viewed as a natural evolution of domotics, and the Italian company has decided to offer visitors an opportunity to experience two systems of great technological and emotional impact at its stand.
In the Emotional Room, visitors will be able to find out how an algorithm on a neural network can evaluate the mood of the people in a space and adapt the lights and music accordingly.
REAL THREE-DIMENSIONAL SOUND
Those who want a truly immersive experience can try out three-dimensional sound, providing a listening experience custom-tailored to the desired type of sound, finding themselves in the middle of a tropical forest or a symphony orchestra.
TECHNOLOGY TIME, IN DISCOVERY OF ONBOARD SYSTEMS
In the wake of last year’s success, Technology Time is back: an event at which a Videoworks expert reveals what goes on behind the scenes of the Italian company’s onboard systems on some of the most interesting superyachts present at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show.
HERE'S A SELECTION OF YACHTS ON DISPLAY FEATURING VIDEOWORKS AUDIO/VIDEO, DOMOTICS, ENTERTAINMENT, LIGHTING AND NETWORK SYSTEMS:
›› CRN 50 m M/Y Latona
›› WIDER YACHTS 50 m M/Y Cecilia
›› CUSTOM LINE 42 m Navetta 42
›› DOMINATOR 28 m M/Y Cadet
›› DOMINATOR 28 m M/Y Zalanka
CRN 50 m M/Y Latona. Videoworks has come up with an AV system incorporating local and centralised racks, with the addition of a network rack on the upper deck. The Sonance 5.1 surround sound system in the upper saloon, main saloon and owner’s cabin guarantees an outstanding acoustic experience. This yacht is also fitted with the Kerio Control cybersecurity system, which uses a web filter to permit administrators to deny or limit access to internet sites, services and applications, protecting users and infrastructure by prohibiting access to harmful sites that could steal the user’s data.
WIDER YACHTS 50 m M/Y Cecilia. All systems are centralised on racks (racks are entirely built, assembled and tested in the Videoworks workshop). The audio system uses top of the range equipment, not only in the saloons but in the guest area as well. To protect the onboard network from IT attacks, Videoworks has installed Kerio Control, an all-in-one firewall, antivirus and bandwidth management system, protecting the onboard server with an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) monitoring all incoming and outgoing communications. In addition to its capabilities as a new generation firewall, the device offers a Load Balancing function guaranteeing high speed data transmission for important data and an optimised Internet connection, distributing traffic via multiple links.
CUSTOM LINE Navetta 42. Here Videoworks has created a centralised AV system featuring Creston processors. All spaces onboard have Airplay with Apple TV. The vessel also features Kerio Control, an all-virtual firewall, antivirusand bandwidth management system which protects onboard browsing against intrusions and viruses while permitting owners to work with full security and speed even when at sea.
DOMINATOR 28 m M/Y Cadet. High fidelity “zero architectural impact” speakers in the cabins can be embedded into any surface to transform it into a true high-performance audio system. The speakers are completely invisible and perfectly calibrated depending on the size of the room or space in order to produce the purest sound. Apple TV, Airplay, air conditioning, lighting and curtains (in the owner’s suite) are easily managed from a tablet anywhere on the yacht.
DOMINATOR 28 m M/Y Zalanka. Use of the sound masking system in the main saloon and owner’s cabin ensures perfect acoustics. Sound masking is an innovative technology ensuring high fidelity sound even in noisy environments such as a yacht at sea. This result is obtained by adding perfectly balanced background noise that cancels out the noise in the space. A plug-in DJ system on the sun deck permits total audio integration, so that DJs can use their own system to play music anywhere, any time. All outdoor audio equipment installed by Videoworks is completely waterproof.
