The administrators of a new 62,000 YMCA in Urbana, Maryland, had more than
the recreation center’s current communications need in mind when they contacted
Audio-Video Group to design and deploy an IP-based audio system throughout
the massive, state-of-the-art facility. “One of their main objectives was having a
a high-quality communications system that would serve all their needs now, but
could be easily expanded overtime to connect with an older YMCA location
across town, as well as with the school district’s middle and high schools that
sit directly behind the property,” says Audio-Video Group sales director John Pierce.
For Pierce, and the rest of the AV integration team, AtlasIED’s enterprise-class
GLOBALCOM.IP system was the obvious choice, given its installation and configuration flexibility. Audio-Video Group paired the customizable communications
platform with a combination of roughly 100 AtlasIED speakers and IPX Series
endpoints to ensure that guests and employees—whether on the basketball court
or in the swimming pool, taking an outdoor yoga class, or running on the track–
can hear and see routine and emergency notifications.
