Five Yamaha IMX644 are in the mix at Big Cedar Lodge

Mar, 2010

Tucked into the wooded hillsides of the Ozark Mountains near Branson, Missouri, Big Cedar Lodge is a popular destination with both holidaymakers and as a corporate meeting venue. The latter aspect has recently been enhanced by the addition of the new Grandview Conference Center, which is host to five Yamaha IMX644 rackmount digital mixers.

The Grandview Conference Center’s Grand Ballroom can either be used as a single 1,000-capacity space or divided into four individual meeting rooms. Hollister-based sound company A-1 Audio was contracted to install an audio system which would accommodate the different uses and configurations for the ballroom, with the IMX644 providing the perfect mix of audio quality and flexibility.

When the ballroom is divided into four rooms, one IMX644 is used in each space, each mixer handling four microphone inputs and two line inputs. The fifth IMX644 provides overall control via an AMX wireless touch screen system. The system is also set up for teleconferencing via using a ClearOne digital coupler, as well as having recording capabilities.

“It has been a blessing to have the Yamaha IMX644 mixers in place,” says D’Wayne Parker, Big Cedar Lodge audio/visual manager. “Combined with the wireless AMX system, we can now seamlessly satisfy all ballroom sound requests with minimal space, maximum quality and can remotely manipulate multiple systems with ease.

“The Yamaha mixers produce much higher sound quality than a typical convention centre sound system and they work seamlessly with other equipment. They make volume changes effortlessly smooth for multiple rooms and simultaneous presentations.

“The compact size and rackmount format of the IMX644 has really helped to minimise the size of potentially bulky audio equipment in the conference rooms.”

Pete Savel of A-1 Audio concurs, adding “The IMX644-basd system is a very cost-effective solution.”
