Company Name: AL Habtoor Corporate Office

Requirements: To provide a modern and easy-to-use Audio – Visual systems in the group corporate office comprising of meeting rooms, conference rooms, majilises, and the dining areas.


Seven Seas Computers were awarded the task of designing, implementing and commissioning of all the AV needs of the newly built corporate office for the Al Habtoor group.


Design and Implementation:

Seven Seas Computers provided a comprehensive solution by designing each room according to its utility and function. The CEO’s office and meeting room has a 2 x2 video wall of bezel-free PDP’s, which takes inputs from Set Top Box; DVD; PC and CCTV. Sound was reproduced from the ceiling mounted Extron speakers, after being routed through necessary amplifiers. The Chairman’s office, majiles and meeting rooms had 50” displays mounted on walls, which could take inputs from DVD, Set Top Box or from the computer. The MD’s office and meeting room was similarly equipped. Control for all systems was through a Crestron wireless touch panel, which was programmed to take-over all functions of the remote controllers. Three other meeting rooms and a conference room was also equipped with AV capability, only using 42” PDP’s. Control was realized by Creston wireless touch panels.


Video Conferencing in the meeting rooms and conference room was provided by Polycom’s HDX 8000 units. A 30 seat auditorium is equipped with a cinema projector and screen, wherein regular films may be screened.

Company Name: The Rare Bar – Media Rotana

Requirements:  The management of Media Rotana decided to open a new bar for its elite customers; it wanted an audio system to match its patrons taste. 


The three zones in the Rare Bar needed different levels of music to be played back as the areas were mutually exclusive.


Design and Implementation:

The Rare Bar is unique in the way it has one common area and two more exclusive semi-private areas. The management of the Rare Bar wanted music to be heard in all areas, but at different levels depending on the requirements of its patrons. Seven Seas Computers took on the challenge of designing such a system where the levels in each zone were independently controlled. In the common area the sub-woofer was placed on the floor next to the DJ booth, to get a rich reproduction of the sound. In the exclusive areas, SSC used the Ultra Compact ceiling mounted speakers from JBL direct radiating sub-woofers from JBL also. A 6x 4 zone controller from DXB was used to control individual zones.

Requirements:  DMCC is the master developer and licensing authority for the Jumeirah  Lakes Tower (Free Zone) one of the largest mixed use free zone developments in Dubai. The authorities were looking for sophisticated Audio Visual System to integrate in their facilities at the 49th & 50th Floor of  Almas towers.


Automation of Audio Visual System and Video distribution for their meeting room and conference room 


Design and Implementation:
These rooms required modular furniture so SSC developed the AV system so that different configurations are available to the client without compromising AV functionality. The system features recessed ceiling projectors and screens along with a video distribution system featuring four 60”LCD displays that are controlled via the control system’s wireless 2-way Crestron touch panel and Matrix Switcher from Extron. Integrated audio system is achieved through ceiling mount Extron speakers that can be re-zoned based on room configuration. A few simple touches on the control panel allow meetings to be set up in seconds.


In the Design process SSC developed the AV system options for each room. These options drove a critical process of DMCC gaining visibility to the various costs involved with AV systems. Ultimately, DMCC was able to decide exactly where to invest their capital, based on the level(s) of system functionality that they needed in each of their meeting and conference rooms.
