21 October 2008 18.00 BST

(Germany) - On 28 September, the Celebrity Solstice - the largest cruise liner ever built in Germany - left the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg amid enormous media interest.

FUNA Nachrichtentechnik of Emden installed equipment including four networked ProMatrix 4000 systems from DYNACORD aboard the new craft.

Built at the Meyer-Werft shipyard for the American cruise line Celebrity Cruises, the Celebrity Solstice is setting new standards: 350 metres long by 36.8 metres wide and offering accommodation for 2,852 passengers in its 1,426 comfortable cabins, it affords passengers the ultimate in onboard luxury.

The Celebrity Solstice is not simply gigantic but superlative in every respect. That’s certainly true of the sound system, where to ensure convenience, reliability, and ease-of-use for the crew and stem-to-stern high quality sound for the passengers, FUNA Nachrichtentechnik GmbH of Emden installed four networked DYNACORD ProMatrix 4000 systems.

The system, which has proved its worth in countless high-profile applications all over the world, is the only one on the market to combine ELA (messaging/voice alarm/evacuation) with pro sound (recorded music).

To give you some idea of the size of the installation, the four DYNACORD ProMatrix 4000 systems boast a combined amplification power of over 53,000 watts. Over 350 loudspeaker lines to over 8,000 loudspeakers--including 350 Electro-Voice 309-8A (coaxial systems), 520 Electro-Voice EVID C4.2 (coaxial ceiling systems), 30 Electro-Voice EVID C8.2 (coaxial ceiling systems), and 70  Electro-Voice Sx80PIX--run the length and breadth of the ship, which also boasts 16 DYNACORD ProMatrix DPC keypanels, not to mention numerous other Electro-Voice loudspeaker systems (function rooms/entertainment areas).
