Solution Overview

Requirement Notes
BGM selection and volume control An ARC-SW4e and Modular ARC (ARC-K1e + ARC-EX4e) installed at hostess station and bar for source/volume control. Modular ARC (ARC-K1e + (2) ARC-EX4e’s) installed in kitchen for source/volume control. ARC-2e installed in manager’s office for source, volume and preset control.
Two paging microphones  The microphones from hostess and bar are connected to the analog mic inputs of the Zone Mix 761.
Fire/emergency audio MUTE ALL Third-party alarm system logic wired to a Zone Mix 761 control input triggers MUTE ALL state.
Ambient level control of music in bar The Zone Mix 761 is programmed with Symetrix proprietary SPL algorithms. A ceiling microphone is used to sense the ambient noise of the room. As the ambient noise increases the program level is turned up as well. As the ambient noise level decreases the program level will decrease.
Mobile BYOD browser-based control of music sources and volume in each zone The Zone Mix 761 embedded ARC-WEB server is programmed from the Zone Mix 761 software to control source selection, volume control and preset recall in parallel with the ARC-2e, ARC-SW4e and Modular ARC’s.
Programmable automatic BGM source in bar for jukebox and DJ Source 2 for bar is programmed to automatically duck the main BGM source when jukebox or DJ are playing audio.
Automatic ducking The Zone Mix 761 is programmed with duckers in every zone when page mics are active.
Auto mixing A separate Gain-Sharing auto mixer is employed for the microphone signals being sent to the far end and also for local voice lift as required.
