From Tranquility to Technology: HimmerLand’s Smart Revamp Creates a Sustainable Retreat

The Danish resort HimmerLand, known for its leisure and professional facilities, has expanded its offerings with the integration of a Genelec Smart IP loudspeaker system in its meeting rooms and newly renovated Larsens Sportsbar & Bistro.

The system, selected and installed by technology solutions company COMM2IG, not only ensures superior sound quality but also aligns with HimmerLand’s commitment to sustainability due to its low power consumption.

The Smart IP Manager software that accompanies the loudspeakers also provides easy setup and problem-solving, earning positive feedback from the client.

  • COMM2IG, a Danish technology solutions company, chose a Genelec Smart IP loudspeaker system for HimmerLand resort’s new meeting rooms and Larsens Sportsbar & Bistro.
  • The Smart IP loudspeakers were chosen for their sleek design, ease of use, and remote monitoring capabilities.
  • The Smart IP system’s low power consumption and sustainable features aligned with HimmerLand’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.

Revamping HimmerLand Resort with Smart Technology

HimmerLand, a tranquil retreat nestled in the beautiful Danish countryside, is more than just a golf and spa resort. With an array of leisure facilities, flexible conference spaces, and a reputation for top-notch hospitality, it’s become a sought-after destination for both recreation and business. A recent expansion has added a new dimension to this serene getaway, with a suite of state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

At the heart of this tech upgrade is the Genelec Smart IP loudspeaker system, chosen by Danish tech solutions company COMM2IG.

Why Genelec?

But why Genelec? Søren Maibom, solution manager and sound designer at COMM2IG, cites the brand’s superior off-axis dispersion, ideal for meeting rooms.

“The off-axis dispersion of Genelec models is excellent, which is very helpful for meeting rooms,” explains Søren Maibom.

Besides that, the sleek Nordic design of Genelec’s equipment was a perfect fit for the stylish interiors of HimmerLand’s meeting spaces.

Smart IP Models: A Perfect Fit

COMM2IG selected six of Genelec’s 4430 Smart IP loudspeakers in black for the meeting rooms. These models offer a local analogue input and a networked IP solution, which can be monitored remotely – a great advantage for troubleshooting.

As the project was wrapping up, HimmerLand challenged COMM2IG with another task – completely refurbishing the resort’s bar into the Larsens Sportsbar & Bistro, all within a tight five-month timeframe.

Smart IP Solution: The Game Changer

With a tight deadline, COMM2IG turned to Genelec once again. They deployed a Smart IP solution, a combination of 22 of the 4420 and 4430 models. According to Maibom, these models were incredibly easy to set up and the Smart IP Manager software was a game-changer.

The Smart IP Manager software optimises the audio performance, handling room equalisation, system organisation, and status monitoring, saving integrators time in configuration and calibration.

Genelec’s Commitment to Sustainability

One of the most notable aspects of Genelec’s Smart IP loudspeakers is their commitment to sustainability, aligning perfectly with HimmerLand’s values of preserving their picturesque surroundings.

“When all 22 loudspeakers in the sports bar are run at an SPL of 75 dB, they draw around 5.2 W each, which is amazing and largely unheard of,” recalls Maibom.

The loudspeakers use recycled aluminium, run off a single CAT cable, and have low power consumption. Their energy-efficient Class D amplification design also reduces heat output, easing the load on the resort’s air conditioning.

Final Thoughts

The revamp of HimmerLand is a testament to how technology and sustainability can coexist, enhancing the user experience while preserving the environment. The success of this project underscores the value of innovative tech solutions, like Genelec’s Smart IP loudspeakers, in creating smart, sustainable spaces.

Whether it’s a peaceful resort in the Danish countryside or a busy corporate boardroom, the future of sound technology is here, and it’s smarter, greener, and more efficient than ever.
