TOA RIDING THE SOUND WAVES OF THE MELBOURNE METRO
The Australis Pro Audio Team have worked closely with Melbourne Sound Systems to upgrade the Passenger Information Systems across the Melbourne Metro Rail Network. With over 415,000 customers a day from all walks of life using the railway system, it was of vital importance to make sure that quality sound processing was used in order to facilitate superior sound reinforcement across the network.
After evaluating a range of products, Melbourne Metro chose the TOA A9500D2 modular digital matrix mixer to take care of its paging announcements, pre-recorded messages and other important train line information needed by its customers. Tony Maggio, Director of Melbourne Sound Systems, commented
TOA has been the benchmark for Melbourne Metro PA systems for decades and the addition of a comprehensive DSP solution and ambient noise control has provided the technological functionality now demanded by a major city’s Passenger Information System.
The TOA 9000 Series, rolled out across the entire Melbourne metropolitan network, are the next generation of matrix mixing solutions with DSP. Built on a rich heritage, TOA has amassed over 80 years of experience and continues to focus on product development, quality assurance, design and manufacturing in the public address, pro sound, intercom and security markets.
