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.

The central auditorium building of the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg on the campus in Cottbus, opened in 1998, has a large divisible auditorium with up to 1,000 seats, three smaller auditoriums with 150 seats each, and four seminar rooms. The audiovisual equipment, especially the signal paths and distribution netwrok, dates back to the time of construction of the building and was therefore no longer up-to-date as far as signals of today’s systems. The entire signal distribution network has been modernized and digitally networked for contents up to 4k / 30fps in several stages during the lecture-free time. The system control has been renewed and made simpler for the user, where the technical staff of the building is provided with full access to all parts of the system and thus can technically handle even complicated special situations. The seminar rooms had their permanently installed projection systems, which are also integrated into the overall network of the building.
