NMIMS Mumbai transcends sonic excellence with Bose Professional’s RoomMatch system


Established in 1981 by the Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal with the help of a donation from the Narsee Monjee Educational Trust, the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies or NMIMS as it is fondly known, has grown into a flourishing university that offers a variety of courses and programs; with over 5000 students and more than 430 faculty members representing an eclectic mix of industry and academic experience; national and international experiences. The institute has experienced a tremendous transformation since its commencement; today standing as a large imposing university structure with 9 specialized schools plus two off-campus operations. It is recognized today as a globalized centre of learning, providing its students a balanced exposure to research, academics and practical aspects of the industry.

And that’s not all. There’s a plethora of co-curricular options for students to explore a holistic enriching experience.

One among them is the luscious auditorium space within the campus bounds, which by itself has hosted some of the most noteworthy events and co-curricular activities to have graced the institution. Reinforcing a superlative audio delivery is the auditorium’s state-of-the-art audio architecture from global professional audio leaders Bose Professional. The audio system at the venue provides adept bespoke aural reproduction for live performances and speech presentations alike, with the perfect balance of power, intelligibility and impact.

Vibhor Khanna, Country Head for Bose Professional in India, enthusiastically expresses, “NMIMS is one of the country’s finest institutions for business academics and it is a matter of pride for us at Bose Professional to be selected as the premier audio choice for their state-of-the-art auditorium facility. We thank the management at NMIMS for the faith that they’ve entrusted in us as a brand, and we’d like to extend heartiest commendations to the entire team at Hi-Tech Audio Systems commissioning the NMIMS auditorium with the kind of effective, powerful and high quality audio system that it so richly deserves.”

Designed and installed by Hi-Tech Audio Systems – the official distributors of Bose Professional products in India – and supported by Vishal Kotian, the regional Bose Professional representative; the adept audio system at the NMIMS auditorium features the globally acclaimed Bose Room Match line array system at the FOH position; deploying the use of multiple elements of the RM7020 symmetrical 20 degree vertical modules and RM12060 symmetrical 60 degree vertical modules to deliver highly detailed mid to high frequency cover, while the RMS 215 subwoofers faithfully reproduce the ever crucial low frequency impact which brings performances to life. Additionally, multiple units of the RMU 206 loudspeakers from the Room Match Utility range of products in addition to DS16S wall mount loudspeakers from the Freespace range of products, flank the auditorium walls on both sides as the surround sound reinforcement. The superlative aural experience extends into the lobby and common areas as well, thanks to the astute integration of multiple units of the DS16F ceiling mount speakers from the Freespace range of products. The entire loudspeaker setup across the auditorium space and the common areas is powered through multiple units of the sublime PM8500 power amplifiers from the acclaimed PowerMatch series of amplifiers, with the control and processing taking place through the ESP4120 engineered sound processor from the ControlSpace range of products.

Manik Gupta of Hi-Tech Audio shares, “The Bose system offers a really smooth and clean sound, plus the power to really impress when required. Modeler helped us know exactly what kind of system the venue requires, while the magic of the DeltaQ technology along with possibility to outfit any venue with the perfect array configuration thanks to finely designed individual array units with precisely-defined dispersion angles, made working with the Bose RoomMatch system an absolute joy. The use of the RM7020 and the RM12060 allowed us to focus the sonic energy evenly across all rows in the auditorium while the use of the RMU206 with the DS16S provides for a solid and dependable reinforcement system which maintains the same high quality tonal signature as the principal FOH setup. Not only is the system pitch-perfect precise, but it is also extremely easy to install, fine-tune and maintain. We have had only praises and compliments about the system from the institute’s management, faculty and students!”

A senior member of the management team at NMIMS delivers an insight about the management’s thoughts on the Bose Professional system at the Auditorium, as he quotes “Our ideology from the get go has always been about top notch quality – commissioning the use of top notch products and technologies so that our students, our faculty and our guests in general have nothing less than the finest experience possible. We are very pleased with the performance of the Bose Professional audio system, and are absolutely convinced about the technological superiority of its products.

For us personally, that was another key aspect of acquiring the best solution as great technology backed by a great team of thorough professionals always delivers the best results. Having direct access to product specific expertise and onsite support has ensured a smooth and timely system rollout of the complete satisfaction of everyone here at NMIMS”.
