An Ambient MULTIVES system will be able to offer live microphone-based or pre-recorded messaging as well as modern features such as interfaces from SIP phone systems or radios, messaging from tablets used by staff within the building as well as interfaces to train information systems and movement databases. MULTIVES will work over LAN and WAN infrastructures such that whole lines of stations can be controlled and monitored from remote line controller locations.
It can also drive induction loops for the hard of hearing and listening posts for the partially sighted. For life safety, Ambient manufactures electronics exclusively in Gdansk and has full EN54-16 certification. The loudspeakers exceed the basic EN54 requirements, with full flame testing for safety to 450 degrees.
Ambient can offer a full acoustic design package to ensure that every station has the clear intelligible messaging for safe evacuation and clear understanding by travellers.
Ambient offer YELLOW control software to allow transport managers to have a combined graphical interface on a PC to make messages and announcements while also having intercom facilities and passenger help points reporting onto the same screen, even linked with CCTV and Access Control systems. The software also gives them full reporting on system health and status which can then be passed on the BMS via SNMP software interfacing for a fully integrated building solution.
In an urban metro system, not all stations are large and Ambient is pleased to recommend the miniVES for the outlying smaller stations. miniVES has all the features of the larger system but in a smaller footprint and at a lower cost.
