Veritais Ltd has completed a substantial audio-visual upgrade on the 54m motor yacht Burkut in Genoa, Italy. Veritais, a leading consultancy and supplier of audio-visual systems for luxury yachts, surveyed the existing systems on the yacht and made detailed recommendations before embarking on a project to bring all systems up to date.
The result of the extensive overhaul is that Burkut now has, according to Veritais, a superior audio-visual and remote control system that uses the latest technology and is easy to operate from anywhere on board.
Burkut (formerly Baraka) was custom built in 2009 by Baglietto and designed by Francesco Paszkowski. Replacements and upgrades included fitted iPod and iPad docks in the gym, main saloon and sky lounge, along with Apple TV with Optical Audio converters in all three areas, as well as upgrades to the main Creston System, which gives full access and control to the on-board systems.
In addition the master cabin benefitted from a full check of the Crestron System and all lower guest cabins have been supplied with new processors and cabling to improve functionality. The guest cabins further benefited from a new remote control handset with dock, which control TV and audio systems.
A central laptop controls remote access to the Creston and LAN management, which will be controlled by the ship’s engineer.
David Milner of Veritais commented, “As with many of our projects, it was not just a case of providing equipment. Burkut’s original system needed extensive review and diagnosis to consider what improvements and replacements were needed. Following on from that we designed a new package of solutions and considered the best products for easy and reliable functionality.”
