Veritais, a leading specialist in providing entertainment and AV systems for the yachting industry, has recently upgraded the audiovisual systems on board the 36m motor yacht Metsuyan IV.
Designed by Ginton Naval Architects and launched in 2006 by Italian yard CBI Navi, Matsuyan IV is a 36m displacement motoryacht built in steel and aluminium. The accommodation is spread over three decks and has room for ten guests and seven crew.
The upgrade of the onboard audio-visual system required that Veritais modernise the core storage, transmission and control systems. However the original screens, amplifiers and DVD players have all been reused.
This presented certain integration challenges, but the Veritais team resolved all the compatibility issues and the entire installation was completed in three weeks.
The core of the system consists of a Control4 HC-800 controller that manages the ship-wide control system, and a zoneripper media server. The latter stores the music and movie library that is accessible from all the zones on board, and also comes with an automatic, onetouch ripping function that makes the addition of new content simple and efficient.
The system gives each zone full access to a central library of movies and music. Users can also wirelessly access content held on their own Apple devices and use the yacht’s screens and speakers to view and listen to their own music and movies.
The major areas on board the yacht each have a 7-inch Control4 tablet with the Navigator interface. These give control of all the functionality available via the system.
Each zone connects to the central media library using the Control4 User Interface and movies and music can be browsed using their cover art.
