YMCA Chooses AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP Communications System for Scalability

YMCA Chooses AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP Communications System for Scalability

New 62,000-square-foot YMCA serves as the communications hub for the eventual integration of sister YMCA and schools, using AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP.

GLOBALCOM.IP 3The administrators of a new 62,000 YMCA in Urbana, Maryland, had more than the recreation center’s current communications needs in mind when they contacted Audio-Video Group to design and deploy an IP-based audio system throughout the massive, state-of-the-art facility. “One of their main objectives was having a high-quality communications system that would serve all their needs now, but could be easily expanded over time to connect with an older YMCA location across town, as well as with the school district’s middle and high schools that sit directly behind the property,” says Audio-Video Group sales director John Pierce. 

For Pierce, and the rest of the AV integration team, AtlasIED’s enterprise-class GLOBALCOM.IP system was the obvious choice, given its installation and configuration flexibility. Audio-Video Group paired the customizable communications platform with a combination of roughly 100 AtlasIED speakers and IPX Series endpoints to ensure that guests and employees—whether on the basketball court or in the swimming pool, taking an outdoor yoga class or running on the track–can hear and see routine and emergency notifications. 

GLOBALCOM.IP System Divides and Unites Multiple Audio Zones
An AtlasIED dealer for 21 years, Audio-Video Group has installed numerous GLOBALCOM.IP and IPX Series products in many schools, healthcare facilities, and houses of worship throughout Southern Maryland. Needless to say, the technology was familiar territory, and one that Audio-Video Group knew would stand the test of time as the YMCA’s communications needs changed. 

That’s not to say this project was void of challenges. “Unlike most projects where we design a communications system for a specific space, for the YMCA we needed to design a system to serve many different types of spaces but within the same enormous facility,” Pierce says. Within the structure are an aquatics center, health and wellness center, a running track, several fitness studios and gymnasiums, meeting rooms, outdoor exercise spaces, and more, each with its own unique acoustical and communications requirements. Through the GLOBALCOM.IP GCK software, Audio-Video Group was able to customize messages, alerts, announcements, and music for each of the YMCA’s 15 audio zones; for example, broadcasting pre-scheduled, pre-recorded daily reminders only in certain zones, while playing music in other zones. 

15 Audio Zones Join Forces for Emergency Notification Facility-Wide
Live announcements issued from the microphone of AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP Digital Communications Stations are also distributed to whichever zones employees select via the station’s built-in touchscreen. This minimizes unnecessary distractions yet affords staff the flexibility to page facility-wide when necessary. 

The GLOBALCOM.IP IP-100 Announcement Control System handles emergency alerts with similar smarts. Each zone is equipped with a panic button, which when pressed, triggers the GLOBALCOM.IP processor to transmit a pre-recorded notification to preset zones. “This highly customized method of communication ensures that the right people receive the alert,” Pierce explains. For example, if there’s an emergency on the pool deck, the alert goes exclusively to the central office and offices of the aquatic staff. However, for campus-wide concerns like a fire, everyone throughout the entire facility is alerted. When the YMCA’s fire alarm system trips, the GLOBALCOM.IP system automatically sends an audible alert to all AtlasIED pendant, surface-mount, and analog speakers, as well as red-colored text notifications to the built-in LCDs of AtlasIED IPX endpoints.   

GLOBALCOM.IP DSPs Tame Wild Acoustics
Getting the right information, in the right format, to the right places was only part of Audio-Video Group’s punch list. They would also need to carefully calibrate the audio to deal with the YMCA’s challenging acoustics. Huge expanses of glass, hard rubber flooring, and high ceilings could have made audio intelligible if it weren’t for the many DSP tools available via the five DPA804 AtlasIED amplifiers on the GLOBALCOM.IP network. After analyzing the acoustical characteristics of each audio zone, Audio-Video Group set the level, EQ, and high/low filter of each amplifier to work around the acoustic obstacles.

GLOBALCOM.IP 1A Solution for Every Space
As plans for the new YMCA rolled out, Audio-Video Group was there every step of the way. “We had eight design meetings with the YMCA team at different stages of the project, reviewing the facility room by room, space by space,” Pierce says. This provided Audio-Video Group and the YMCA with a clear vision of how the communications system would operate, and AtlasIED had a solution that suited every square inch of the cutting-edge recreation center. “AtlasIED’s GLOBALCOM.IP communications system and IPX Series endpoints bring a unique blend of form and function to the YMCA,” says Pierce. The integrated clocks on the IP endpoints and the stylish speakers complement the structure’s modern aesthetic, while the GLOBALCOM.IP system meets every communication need now and in the future.”

AtlasIED AtmosphereAtmosphere™ Platform Sets a New Digital Audio Standard
During InfoComm 2021 AtlasIED will debut for the first time at a global AV industry trade show its award-winning Atmosphere™ digital audio platform. Launched successfully last year, Atmosphere™ comprises a complete ecosystem of interoperable products rich with advanced features. The platform has been designed and engineered to be dramatically easier to configure, install, and operate than traditional digital audio systems, but with the modularity, scalability, versatility, and quality performance to support the audio needs of a wide range of commercial applications, particularly well-suited for restaurants, bars, hotels, school campuses, houses of worship, and retail establishments.

Setting Atmosphere™ apart from other digital audio solutions are integrated technologies including touchless control, automation, and artificial intelligence. Together, these features, along with new updates, like bell-scheduling and stereo support, provide commercial establishments with a simpler, more convenient way to manage audio, resulting in greater customer and employee satisfaction and engagement. Plus, new black wallplates

join the platform’s original white wallplates and accessories as an option that blends better with the color schemes and construction materials of many hotels, bars, restaurants and other environments. 

As part of its Atmosphere™ exhibit, AtlasIED will showcase several key components of the system, including an 8-zone and 4-zone audio processor (AZM8 and AZM4), wall-mounted controllers for volume, source and zone selection; remote input devices for RCA, XLR, and Bluetooth connectivity; a technologically advanced ambient noise sensor, and 400- and 800-watt 4-channel power amplifiers (AZA404 and AZA804). 

SHS-3T2 and SHS-LF Speakers Support Sound Masking and Background Music
AtlasIED expands its Strategically Hidden Speaker (SHS) line at InfoComm 2021 with the addition of two new high-quality, design-friendly speakers, the SHS-3T2 and the SHS-LF. Exhibiting the same discreet, low-profile cosmetics as AtlasIED’s existing line of SHS products, the two newcomers are engineered and designed for sound masking and high-quality background music applications. 

The SHS-3T2 integrates seamlessly with AtlasIED’s Z Series Z2-B and Z4-B High-Definition Acoustical System, providing AV integrators with a simple-to-install speaker that goes virtually unnoticed in healthcare, clinical, and corporate facilities where sound masking is important for speech privacy and workplace productivity and comfort. The SHS-LF is a design-friendly subwoofer that pairs perfectly with AtlasIED’s SHS-6T2 and SHS-3T2 to round out the low-frequencies for high-quality music reproduction. 

Only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible when the SHS-3T2 and SHS-LF are installed flush with the ceiling. The lens can be rendered imperceptible via AtlasIED’s DesignLab™ color match process, a high-resolution UV-printing technology that replicates color and texture onto the SHS lens for visual continuity. 

GCK Application, IP-DMF, and 571 Mic Station Leverage Mass Communication
Giving commercial AV integrators even greater choice and flexibility when designing and deploying life safety and general notification systems, are an updated version of the GLOBALCOM® GCK software application, a digital communications station in both Dante and CobraNet versions, and a new IP endpoint that combines an integrated LCD, flasher, and talkback microphone. 

The GCK Application can be utilized on any Windows 10 device or server. In addition to this installation flexibility, it offers AV integrators the same great features as the original GCK software, but with a brighter, more modern user interface to streamline programming and navigation. Per the request of AV integrators, also new is the ability to program the software off-line, further streamlining deployment of GLOBALCOM® mass communications systems. 

AtlasIED GLOBALCOM 1Replacing AtlasIED’s 528, 550, and 570 Series Digital Communication Stations, the 571 Digital Communication Station with integrated microphone supports both CobraNet and Dante standards, features a highly intuitive and easy-to-clean adaptive touchscreen as its user interface, and can be flush-, surface-, or desktop-mounted either vertically or horizontally. 

Further enhancing mass communications solutions in AtlasIED’s comprehensive lineup, and a commonly requested addition to the IPX family of IP endpoints is the IP-DMF, an indoor wall-mounted IP Endpoint supporting scrolling text alerts and visual signaling through a flasher to improve daily and emergency communications and a microphone to support intercom functionality. The IP-DMF is particularly useful in noisy environments like factories, transportation hubs, school and corporate cafeterias, auditoriums, and more, where visual communication is usually more effective. 

“These new audio and communications solutions not only represent our commitment to providing AV integrators with products that satisfy the technological and high-use demands of commercial projects but also their need to have the products when and where they need them for on-time deployment. We’ve alleviated some of the headaches associated with worldwide shipping hurdles and product shortages by maintaining a full inventory of our new and existing product lines,” says Michael Peveler, VP Sales at AtlasIED. “Most of these recent new additions to the AtlasIED portfolio are in stock and ready to ship, giving integrators one more reason to partner with us.”

AtlasIED Atmosphere platform has its global AV trade show debut, bringing InfoComm 2021 attendees a a revolutionary digital audio system that’s packed with advanced technology yet is simple to configure, install, and use. 

PHOENIX, AZ – (October 23, 2021) – AtlasIED—a global manufacturer of comprehensive audio solutions for commercial environments, will debut for the first time at a global AV industry trade show its award-winning AtlasIED Atmosphere™ digital audio platform. Launched successfully last year, Atmosphere™ comprises a complete ecosystem of interoperable products rich with advanced features. The platform has been designed and engineered to be dramatically easier to configure, install, and operate than traditional digital audio systems, but with the modularity, scalability, versatility and quality performance to support the audio needs of a wide range of commercial applications, particularly well-suited for restaurants, bars, hotels, school campuses, houses of worship, and retail establishments.

“At last, a product line that removes the complexity of configuration yet maintains ample flexibility in designing a digital audio system for different types of venues,” says Cliff Stromeyer of Phoenix-based integration firm, Trox. Adds Mike Harpster of Capital Electric Wire & Cable, New Berlin, Wisconsin, “This platform enables us to help our customers deliver rich audio content to workplaces like never before. The simplicity and capabilities that have been engineered into Atmosphere™ make it a major game-changer for our clients. With the many plug-and-play wall-plate controls, getting a space up and sounding great is easier than ever before.”

For its InfoComm debut of AtlasIED Atmosphere™, the company will showcase several key components of the system, including an 8-zone and 4-zone audio processor (AZM8 and AZM4), wall-mounted controllers for volume, source and zone selection; remote input devices for RCA, XLR, and Bluetooth; a technologically advanced ambient noise sensor, and 400- and 800-watt, 4-channel power amplifiers. All of the components interoperate seamlessly, minimizing training time and installation, configuration, and programming headaches for AV integrators, and reducing the learning curve for end-users. Also setting Atmosphere™ apart from other digital audio solutions are integrated technologies including touchless control, automation, and artificial intelligence. Together, these features provide commercial establishments with a simpler, more convenient way to manage audio, resulting in greater customer and employee satisfaction and engagement. 

New Black Wallplates and Accessories Blend in Better
New to the Atmosphere™ line is a choice of black wallplates and accessories. They join the platform’s original white wallplates and accessories as an option that blends better with the color schemes and construction materials of many hotels, bars, restaurants and other environments. 

Firmware Update Introduces New AV Integrator-Inspired Capabilities to Atmosphere™
Additionally, AtlasIED will demonstrate Atmosphere’s new 2.0 firmware update, which introduces several new capabilities to the system. Stemming from integrator requests, recently implemented features include:

  • Stereo and subwoofer support to produce dynamic, multi-dimensional music playback;
  • bell scheduling for automatic notification of class dismissals, lunch breaks, and other events;
  • room combine which enables large areas like conference rooms and banquet halls to be divided into multiple independent audio zones, and;
  • self-healing accessories, which enables replacement Atmosphere™ components to be added to an installed system and be recognized and configured automatically.

“Atmosphere™ signifies our commitment to the audiovisual community through a comprehensive product platform that offers unprecedented benefits to both integrators and end-users,” says John Ivey, president at AtlasIED. “AV companies can take full advantage of the numerous benefits afforded by this innovative digital audio solution in a wide range of commercial environments, from the smallest cocktail lounge to the largest luxury hotel. Further, this platform and subsequent product rollouts and system refinements positions AtlasIED as a leader in the digital audio industry and creates exciting business opportunities for technology integrators.”

Revolutionary Features Set a New Digital Audio Standard: Touchless Control, Artificial Intelligence, and Automation
Gone are the days of multiple users touching the controls of a digital audio system to select sources, adjust the volume, and choose zones. Instead, Atmosphere™ enables each authorized user to manage the system from his or her own mobile device, lending a cleaner, more hygienic approach to control no matter which operating system is being utilized. Setup is simple: The controls of the Atmosphere™ digital audio processor populate automatically when a user’s mobile device scans the DSP’s QR code. Per parameters programmed initially into the system by the AV integrator, this QR code grants access to certain features; for example, allowing a manager to modify the schedule of outgoing messages, while staff is permitted to only adjust the volume level. 

Leveraging this hands-off approach to control is Atmosphere’s™ revolutionary ambient noise compensation technology. Built into each Atmosphere™ DSP (two models are available) are multi-patented algorithms, which enable it to continually learn and adapt to changes in the environment. Through data collected and transmitted by an Atmosphere™ ambient noise sensor, the DSP comes to recognize patterns like the need to raise the volume at a bar during happy hour to compensate for high levels of ambient noise. Unlike systems that rely on external microphones to monitor the environment, Atmosphere™ uses artificial intelligence to analyze audio data and respond to the predictable behaviors of its users, such as consistent commands issued from an Atmosphere™ volume controller, as well as data sent from an Atmosphere™ ambient noise sensor to the DSP. 

The audio level isn’t the only setting that Atmosphere™ adjusts automatically. Messages uploaded to the DSP as WAV files can be dispatched according to a pre-programmed schedule based on priority or when triggered by an Atmosphere™ input device, such as a volume/source/zone selector. This level of automation affords AV integrators a digital audio solution that can be customized for exceptional operational convenience, efficiency, and performance. Adding another layer of customization is a built-in Tilter Filter™, which drastically simplifies tuning the audio for the specific room or zone with an easy-to-use feature that helps balance lows and highs.  

InfoComm 2021 attendees are invited to Booth #2311 to see AtlasIED’s Atmosphere™ platform as well as several new product introductions. To see the entire Atmosphere™ product portfolio and learn more about the digital audio platform, please visit https://www.atlasied.com/atmosphere. The Atmosphere family of products is currently in stock and shipping.
