The Ultimate Crestron Super-Yacht Award
Project Hasna is a 73m Super Yacht that was built at the Feadship Shipyard in the Netherlands that required a best-in-class, extremely reliable integrated audio/video system.
AHT Marine provided a solution utilizing Crestron’s award winning technology as the focal point for control and system integration. The owner, crew members and guests were provided with strategically placed Crestron touchpanels, handheld remotes, iPads and Cameo keypads throughout the vessel in order to navigate and control audio/video content. Close to 200 speakers and subwoofers were installed throughout the yacht, and over 30 displays.
AHT Marine is dedicated to ensuring our clients with the highest levels of comfort, communications and entertainment during a short or extended voyage. Crestron’s distributed technology solutions were paramount on providing Hasna with the ultimate in comfort and convenience.
The entire project was a team effort. AHT Marine Crestron Certified engineers, designers and programmers ensured satisfactory and timely delivery. The final result was a connected super yacht with the highest levels of reliability.
The Ultimate Crestron Home Award
This Miami Beach residence takes luxury living to the next level. When a long-time AHT Global client called us to explain their idea of expanding their property to add two separate apartments, a hidden wine room, a commercial style gym, a home theater and an outdoor entertainment area that features a retractable roof, we were open ears, and we knew that Crestron would be the centerpiece to control everything.
Powered by Crestron, this sprawling Miami Beach waterfront home features intuitive audio/video, lighting, security, CCTV, HVAC, In-Ceiling TV-lifts, and pool/spa controls throughout the interior and exterior of the property. Four Pro3 Crestron processors and three CP3 processors are used throughout the property to control all of the home’s functionality. Distributed throughout the home are Crestron Gateway RF receivers to allow the strategically placed touchpanels and hand-held remotes to communicate properly. Several DigitalMedia matrix switchers ranging in size from 8×8 to 32×32 are used to add ultra-fast digital video and audio switching, and lossless HD multiroom signal distribution. Four 24×8 SWAMP’s are used to distribute audio inside and outside of the property.
The homeowner and their guests now have now have an integrated solution to control audio, video, computer, IP and environmental systems. The Crestron system has streamlined all of the home’s technology, making the home more convenient, comfortable and secure.
