ADA Acoustics & Media Consultants GmbH

After the defeat of the German division, and upon meeting the objective requirements, the engineering firm ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert was initially founded with two colleagues. From day one, the software program EASE, which was at that time still DOS-based, was available. As a result, the feasibility of room- and electro-acoustic designs could be efficiently verified. Large projects during the early 90s, such as the planning of a new sound reinforcement system for the German Opera (Deutsche Oper) in Berlin, supported the start-up phase.

A similar experience was gathered during the reconstruction of the Plenary Assembly of the Parliament in Ankara, where in 1996, for the first time, a fingerprint system for the identification of the Members of Parliament was introduced, which is still in operation in its original form till today. The number of awarded contracts in the country and abroad was then increasing as well as the number of employees. In 2010, the activities profile of the sole-property company ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert was transferred to ADA Acoustics & Media Consultants GmbH. Major tasks are still ahead of our team, such as the extensive Al Maktoum International Airport, which is currently under construction and is intended in its first construction phase to serve around 120 million passengers per year.

Installation of audio and video systems, renewal of stage management system

Senatsverwaltung für Stadtentwicklung

ADA Scope of services:
Installation of digital sound studio, sound reinforcement system and renewal of stage management system

Project data:

  • Start of planning: 1992 (complete construction project including rehearsal stages)
  • Update the signal distribution and the digital mixing console 2006
  • Completion of stage managment: 2010
  • Consultation on the sound system 2014

Originally, the installation of a digital matrix and the use of a digital mixing console was planned, which was then renewed by the manufacturer Salzbrenner Media Group 2006 at the current location in the control room behind the rear wall of the hall. The digital matrix is connected to the stage and under-stage areas, the studio, the hall, the ceiling and the rehearsal rooms. The renewal of the sound system loudspeakers was not carried out until 2014, since the then existing loudspeakers were to a arge extent unusable due to flood damages. The renewal of the stage management system encompassed the areas of intercom central unit, stage control console, intercom stations, call stations, light system, assistive listening system and video system. The stage control console was equipped with several monitors, with which the pictures of the video system or the screen contents of the machinery can be selectively displayed.
A challenge of renewal task was the widespread use of the old cable network. The large building was not the only building involved in the project, but also two rehearsal stages located in different buildings and the old rehearsal stage as independent venues, with a remote small mobile stage control console. The renewal of the stage management system was completed during a summer break in 2010.
