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 plenary hall of the Berlin House of Representatives had to completely renew the old conference center, which was installed during the renovation of the building. In order not to change the shape of the table in the hall, special constructions for the microphones have been made with a turn / tilt steering. The sound signal processing and distribution is perfromed fully digitally in a large star matrix, which comprises all microphones and microphone consoles. The loudspeaker system is also renewed and allows localization in several zones of the plenary hall. The control zone, which is located on the side in the plenary hall, has been extensively renewed and allows the control of the entire audio-visual system of the room. For the display of the agenda and, if necessary, further image contents, two large-screen plasma displays are inserted to the right and left of the presidium; the presidium itself can also follow the written content via a screen tape over the visitor's gallery.

For special events, there is a bright projection on a large screen behind the presidium also available now.
