The New York University Abu Dhabi Arts Centre is an expansive complex of performance venues, technical resources and educational facilities, including a 150-seat theatre, conference facilities and studio. The venue hosts professional artists from around the world, student performances and community events, and as such it required a high-spec audio infrastructure to cope with the demanding schedule at the venue.
Dubai-based NMK Electronics Enterprises was called in to supply the kit for the installation and in doing so specified a selection of Van Damme Cable products from VDC Trading.
Van Damme Black Series Tour Grade 8 pair multicore and 2 x 2.50mm 2 core twin-ax were chosen for their ability to provide accurate signal transmission, toughness and flexibility, while the Ambicore Power & Signal Tour Grade multicore 20A 3 x 2.5mm was specified for dynamic use and provides an elegant solution to the problem of integrated signal and power distribution. Also used across the venue is the Van Damme 3 x 1.50mm 15A Ambicore 13A plug to Powercon 5m and the high-quality Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE microphone cable, which combines flexibility, durability, noiseless operation and excellent handling characteristics.
Since the project has been completed, the Arts Centre has received rave reviews and the venue has already become a central part of the Abu Dhabi cultural scene.
