Zydus Cadila Corporate Auditorium

Zydus Cadila, a leading Indian Pharmaceutical company ranked 4th in the nation, is a fully integrated, global healthcare provider. Headquartered in Ahmedabad, India, the corporate offices include a 286-seat multipurpose auditorium which hosts conferences and cultural events for the entire company throughout the year. Recently, the company requested from distributors ISD India a powerful system for the musical events that occur in the hall, yet with high speech intelligibility for the other applications. With these strict requirements in addition to the client excluding bulky speakers placed in the auditorium, integrators Sound Sense in Ahmedabad were tasked with providing a discreet sound system and looked no further than K-array. 

Provided by distributor ISD India, the audio configuration comprised of 6 Kayman-KY102 line array, suspended in two arrays on each side of the stage, paired with 2 Thunder-KMT21P subwoofers. For the front fill, 4 flexible Anakonda-KAN200+ speakers are hung at the stage base while 6 Turtle-KRM33P low profile speakers are employed on the stage for monitoring. 2 Vyper-KV52 flat line arrays provide further monitoring. A Capture–KMC50 microphone is implemented for its thin line array characteristics with 8 x 4 mm for a wide registration on the vertical plane and narrow horizontal plane on the podium. 

The system is driven by 2 Kommander-KA24 and 1 Kommander-KA84 amplifiers. Simulation software guaranteed an optimum result for every seat providing uniform coverage throughout the venue. The entire executive board gathered up on the day of the project handover and were overwhelmed to see the system performing to its best and justifying every corner in the room. They were also pleasantly surprised by the fact that there were only 6 hanging speakers to cover all the seats and everyone was highly impressed by the way room was designed and how the speakers were installed.
