We started the project early and managed to commissioning and handover the system early 2004.

A total of 22 units were supplied to dim various areas like the Lobby, Chinese Restaurant, Coffee House, Bar Lounge, Main Entrance, and Japanese Restaurant. The control panel is an elegant 10 button push button type using 2 pair screen cable.
Even Polaron dimmer was installed at the Banquet Hall and Function Rooms. Polaron dimmer were selected by the consultant as it offered by-pass switch to manually by pass the dimmer to turn the light to 100% fullness in the even the dimmer fail to work. This is the important features built in to the Polaron Dimming system.
Scene selection is achieved at the 10 button control panel via LED illuminated push button and each panel incorporates a miniature programming point to set and store the lighting level, scenes and fade time.

The Ballroom which is a 615 square meters with a ceiling height of 6 meter can accommodate up to 600 pax has the best Audio Visual system installed. The Audio Visual installation consists of Sound System, Projection System, Stage Lighting and the Architectural Dimming System.

A substantial quantity of high quality ceiling speaker using Soundolier FA138 was installed in the banquet hall.
For Projection System their preferences of using Sony VPL-FX50 XGA LCD projector with long throw lens proven to be excellent choices. The output from the 3500 Ansi Lumens projector provides bright and sharp images on the 18’ x 18’ Rolleramic screen. The inputs selection is via Extron Crosspoint. The input source is either from visualizer, Video cassette recorder, DVD player and 3 CCD cameras.

A tyristor digital dimmer is preferred type we can installed this at the control room and it will not interfere with the audio devices and it produce low noise and less interference to the sound system.
The lighting bar is a portable 5 m barrel where the consultant wanted it to be able to quickly dismantle when not in use or as not to cluster the ceiling above. For this we use aluminum bar with socapex connector for flexible power cable and hang it to the ceiling using steel cable.
