The first of the new Vicem Vulcan 35m class by Turkish yacht builder Vicem Yachts has selected a state-of-the-art entertainment system by Lantic, a leader in bespoke integrated AV / IT systems for superyachts.
The installation will include Lantic’s cabin control feature; delivering full control of the lighting, air conditioning and blinds in each cabin or zone. Additional features will include navigation chart view and service call.
Lantic has specified a system that divides the yacht into 4 external (music only) and 11 internal zones, with each of the latter capable of selecting and running its own choice of media ranging from streaming satellite TV to movies held in the central digital library and online content. The system will have at its core three media storage servers providing 6 terabytes (TB) of memory with the option to expand to 15TB, a 12-channel central streaming server (CSS) and a pair of Lantic’s HD satellite servers with four channels each.
Depending on the specification for each zone, Lantic is also supplying remote controls, wireless keyboards, docks for iPads and iPhones/iPods and wall-mounted touch panels for Cabin Control. Lantic apps for Apple devices will also be supplied, allowing full control from personal iPads, iPhones etc.
Peter Bouman of Lantic said, “This is a comprehensive fit-out that takes full advantage of Lantic’s capabilities. The owners and guests can both enjoy a vast range of content and control their local environments without leaving their seats. They can even use their iPads and iPhones to access and stream that same content if that is more convenient, or display content from their devices on any of the yacht’s TV screens. Regular software updates will deliver fresh functionality and ensure compatibility with new devices and third-party operating systems.”
The first Vicem Vulcan 35m is due for delivery this summer. For more information on Lantic and its entertainment systems, go to www.lantic-systems.com.
