San Diego’s Grand Hyatt Manchester, Hotel AV Systems Renovation
Grand Hyatt Manchester, San Diego, CA United States
The Manchester Grand Hyatt is Southern California’s largest hotel. Its two towers, one 34 floors and one 40 floors, are the seventh and third tallest buildings in San Diego, and most of its 1600 rooms offer spectacular views of the city, the Pacific Ocean, or both. The quality and quantity of the Manchester Grand Hyatt’s fabulous accommodations paired with Southern California’s famously clement weather guarantees that its 125,000 square feet of flexible ballrooms and breakout rooms (40+) remain booked without pause. However, that tight schedule, while a blessing in every other respect, became the principle challenge in an extensive renovation of the hotel’s AV system. Due to their ease of programming, cost effectiveness and complete flexibility when expanding via Dante, San Diego-based Audio Associates chose a number of Symetrix SymNet Radius 12×8 open architecture networked DSPs and affordable SymNet xIn 12 and SymNet xOut 12 I/O expanders as the audio heart of Manchester Grand Hyatt’s new AV system.
