Videoworks Group confirms its role as a leader in AV and IT integrations in the world of yachting, with its systems installed in some of this season’s most eagerly awaited superyachts. The use of audio/video systems, domotics and an on-board network are now among the main requests made by Owners and their guests. Activities watching a soccer match on a large screen in HD, listening to excellent music with loudspeakers that faithfully reproduce pure sounds, managing lights, multimedia contents and air conditioning and browsing the internet in a secure and reliable manner, are now musthaves of system integration.
The 2019 line-up – on board with the best
Videoworks has developed the on-board systems of vessels such as the 80-metre Columbus Classic M/Y Dragon megayacht, the new Benetti FB272 and FB277 giga yachts and the Sunseeker 116, as well as the first 50-metre Riva Yachts M/Y Race, the 79-metre CRN 135 and the 140’ by Pershing. Starting from the Owners’ various requests, Videoworks technicians opted for centralised or local racks. They then worked on making the system easy for the Owners and their guests to use, thanks to dedicated interfaces that can be managed on iPads. Systems such as these are installed on the new 55-metre yacht by Baglietto and the 31-metre yacht by Cerri.
Here you can discover some works that the Italian company made on different yachts.
Columbus CLASSIC M/Y DRAGON
On the 80-metre yacht by Columbus Yachts (part of the Palumbo Superyachts group), Videoworks has designed the AV, SAT and domotics systems. There is a local rack with the
AV electronics in every hall. The integrated AV system is managed by a Crestron CPU. The Videoworks interface for iPad makes it as simple as possible for the Owner to use and cinema lovers will be able to make full use of the VOD Kaleidescape system for the storage and reproduction of UHD contents.
Riva SYD01 M/Y Race
The 50-metre yacht that inaugurates the SuperYachtsDivision of Riva Yachts holds
super-concentrated technology: Videoworks has designed the AV, IT, TV/Sat, CCTV, IP telephony and domotics systems. The AV-IT system was designed according to the philosophy of a distributed system – every cabin has a local rack containing the AV electronics. The audio system in the internal and external premium areas has the James Loudspeaker marine speakers. IP telephony is based on a Panasonic switchboard with fixed and cordless terminals. Thanks to its considerable experience and long-term partnership with LUTRON (a world leading company in the production of light control systems), Videoworks has designed and built the on-board domotics, i.e. the intelligent control of lights and blinds in the guest area, which makes time on board even more comfortable and pleasant. The CCTV system is made up entirely of professional PANASONIC products. It includes 5 highresolution IP cameras and a network recorder for recording video flows and archiving them in encrypted form.
CRN 135 – 79m
Super-quality sounds and images, comfort and top security of the internet connection: these are the pillars of the system that Videoworks designed and built with the contribution of the CRN technical office and with the Owners’ Team. Starting from a cabling infrastructure designed to support technological development in the next ten years, Videoworks installed OLED 4K display screens, centralised multimedia digital libraries, premium speakers, invisible speakers on the external decks, latest-generation Wi-Fi, VSAT and LTE-A connection and state-of-the-art IT security systems, which, among other things, also make remote assistance operations easy to carry out. An integrated Lutron system allows to manage all the lighting facilities on board. To ensure the systems are very
easy for the Owner and guests to use, the systems can be managed through a simple interface that can be installed on iPads and iPhones.
Hight technology solutions characterise the systems that Videoworks has studied for this new 31-metre yacht. The AV-IT system was designed according to the philosophy of a distributed system – every cabin/hall has a local rack containing the AV electronics. The IT infrastructure (cabled and Wi-Fi) is made entirely with CISCO Hardware, a world leader in terms of reliability and performance. The AV integrated system is managed through a Crestron CPU. The Videoworks interface for iPad allows to easily control the Audio and
