MUMBAI—Technosales Multimedia Technologies Pvt Ltd. recently deployed industry-leading JBL Professional by HARMAN cinema surround systems in two theatres at the Sai Teerth devotional theme park to provide a more immersive spiritual experience for devotees.
Sai Teerth is India’s first devotional theme park, featuring immersive exhibits dedicated to one of the most worshipped secular saints of all time; Sai Baba. With four world-class audio-visual attractions, Sai Teerth is home to one of the largest cinema screens in the country, as well as an innovative 5D theatre. In order to provide the most immersive experience for devotees, Sai Teerth hired one of India’s most renowned distribution groups—Technosales Multimedia Technologies Pvt Ltd. After surveying the location, Technosales designed a custom cinema surround sound system that utilizes JBL Professional loudspeakers and Crown amplifiers for their unparalleled performance and rock-solid reliability.
“Sai Teerth asked us to provide a world-class audio system to make their exhibits more engaging and immersive,” said Mr. Rajesh Patil of Technosales Multimedia Technologies Pvt Ltd. “The biggest challenge was providing consistent coverage due to the size of the Giant Theatre and the interactive nature of the 5D Theatre. The flexibility and clarity of HARMAN cinema sound systems helped us overcome these challenges to deliver stunning sound throughout both theatres.“
The Sabka Malik Ek attraction in the Giant Theatre features a custom hour-long film displayed on a massive 36’ by 72’ cinema screen. In order to make the soundtrack as immersive as the visuals, Technosales installed three high-power JBL 5742 four-way ScreenArray loudspeakers for their high output, optimal coverage and minimal distortion. Six JBL 4642A subwoofers deliver a powerful extended low frequency response, while 18 JBL 9310 cinema surround loudspeakers mounted throughout the theater offer studio quality sound and precise coverage. Crown DSI 4000 and DSI 6000 amplifiers are used to power the system in the Giant Theatre.
Lanka Dahan is a custom-built ride that features an interactive 26-minute film with 5D stereoscopy audio. In order to meet the advanced technological needs of this immersive exhibit, Technosales equipped the 5D theatre with three JBL 4722 ScreenArray two-way cinema loudspeakers for their smooth and accurate response. Two JBL 4642A subwoofers offer an extended low frequency response, while 14 JBL 9300 cinema surround loudspeakers offer enhanced coverage in a compact package, making them easy to hide out of sight. Crown DSI 2000 and DSI 4000 amplifiers are used to power the system in the 5D Theatre.
“At Sai Teerth, we want devotees to experience a magical holy journey,” said Mr. Sanjay Dabke, Managing Director, Guardian Media & entertainment Pvt. Ltd. “We want to create an immersive experience that combines devotion with technology and entertainment. The audio-visual system plays a major role in accomplishing that, which is why we chose industry-leading HARMAN cinema surround systems.”
“It gives us immense pride at HARMAN Professional Solutions India to be associated with a project of such magnificence and spiritual significance,” said Prashant Govindan, Sr. Director, Harman Professional Solutions, India & SAARC. “I congratulate the team members who worked together to complete this project in such a short span of time. I thank Vikas Corporation, our authorized dealer for Cinema sound, for providing timely logistical and technical support, as well as Technosales, and HARMAN's in-house cinema application team for their perfect installation and commissioning. We’re thrilled to provide an immersive cinematic audio experience by JBL and Crown for the devotees at the theme park.”
