Sennheiser ADN Conference Systems Enjoy Saudi Success


Your content goes here...Sennheiser’s ADN conference system is proving a major success in the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia now boasting the highest number of installed systems in the world. Sennheiser Middle East recently supplied two further examples to prestigious Saudi venues, via Jeddah-based Abu Moammar Est (AME). 


The first system was installed at the Royal Exclusive Management Meeting Hall (Prince Mohammad Bin Nasir Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, Ministry of Interior Government of Jazan). AME was invited to tender for a conference system and, having every confidence in the Sennheiser ADN system, the company’s general manager Moammar AL Harbi requested that they be allowed to arrange a demonstration.


“We were given the chance to demonstrate the equipment and the client was so impressed that, after the demo, the ADN system was the only one he wanted,” says Mr AL Harbi. “It was a true case of the equipment proving itself to make the sale much easier for us.”


Designed and supervised by engineer Javaid Iqbal, the system comprised one ADN CU1 central control unit, one ADN C1 chairperson unit, 40 ADN D1 delegate units and 41 OMX980 WEST earpieces. Also included in the system were three ew 135 G3 wireless handheld microphones, with the entire system featuring PC monitoring.


“The client was very pleased with the sound quality and completely satisfied with the overall system,” says Mr AL Harbi. “The fact that the system can be improved by software upgrades was also much appreciated, particularly the ability to record direct to USB stick or hard drive.”


The recording feature was included in the latest ADN Feature Release II firmware upgrade, which also included other enhancements such as adjustable feedback suppression and a new push-to-talk mode.


The second system has been installed at the Dar Al Iman Intercontinental hotel in Madinah and features an ADN CU1 control unit, one ADN C1 chairperson unit and 20 ADN D1 delegate units, plus ew 135 G3 and ew 122 G3 wireless handheld microphones.


“The hotel hosts meetings and conferences for a range of clients, so they needed a system that could be used in different rooms, quickly and easily setting it up each time,” says Mr AL Harbi. “The hotel is very pleased with it, the recording facility again being a key function that they want to use.”


“We are very pleased that ADN systems are being so widely adopted in Saudi Arabia,” says Sennheiser Middle East Sales and Marketing Manager Mig Cardamone. “It is a country with a world class reputation for having the best facilities for its businesses and so it is reassuring that ADN is considered the best discussion system on the market.


“Despite launching ADN only last year, Feature Release II is the second such firmware upgrade we have released to date and these updates are available to download from our website free of charge for existing users. This ongoing development gives our customers confidence that they are investing in a discussion system that will evolve with their needs, adding real value to their purchase.


“AME is spearheading the adoption of Sennheiser technology in the region and we look forward to working closely with Mr AL Harbi and his team on future projects.”
