Harman Professional Solutions Elevates the experience of devotees at Sai Teerth with JBL and Crown Audio Solutions

Technosales Multimedia Technologies P.L installed JBL by Harman Cinema sound solution in two theatres – the Giant screen and the 5D screen at Sai Teerth – India’s first devotional Theme Park that opened to devotees on 30th March 2018 in Shirdi. The Giant Screen is one of the Largest Cinema Screen in any theme park with 500 seating capacity and the 5D theatre is the largest in the country housing 160 seats.

Sai Teerth is India’s first immersive theme park dedicated to Sai Baba, India’s most worshipped secular saint of all times. Sai Teerth by Malpani Group is one of the modern wonders, which combines devotion with technology and entertainment. There are four custom-built, themed attractions including Tirth Yatra - a 12 minutes Temple ride, Lanka Dahan - a 5D show in a 5-D theatre, Sabka Malik Ek - a movie on Sai Baba shown in 500-seater giant screen theatre and Dwarkamai - a blessing experience created using animatronics and robotics.

“When it comes to a holistic cinematic experience in India, the only brand name that comes to our mind is JBL and that was the first choice of the Malpani group as well as Guardian Media and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. – the company who designed & created the theme park.” said Rajesh Patil of Technosales Multimedia Technologies P.L. He further added, “Working with the team at Harman was smooth, from a perfectly designed system to timely installation, with perfectly guided installation team which tweaked the system accordingly to get a well calibrated cinema experience. The outcome is extremely satisfying and appreciated by all who have experienced the content at the theatres so far”.

Commenting on the install, Sanjay Dabke, Managing Director, Guardian Media & entertainment Pvt. Ltd said, “At Sai Teerth, India’s first immersive theme park, we wanted the devotees to experience a magical holy journey and bring them closer to the most worshipped secular saint of all times. It is a modern wonder, which combines devotion with technology and entertainment. JBL is an industry leader when it comes to cinema sound and we wanted our audience to have the best audio-visual experience in the two theatres, hence JBL by Harman was our first choice. We are extremely happy to be associated with Harman Professional India and thank Technosales for putting it all together in the way we exactly envisaged.”

The HARMAN system installed in the giant theatre includes three JBL 5742 high power four-way ScreenArray loudspeakers, which provide maximum output, optimal coverage with no distortion. Six JBL 4642A subwoofers for powerful low frequency response supplemented the screen loudspeakers and eighteen JBL 9310 surround sound speakers provide a true immersive experience.
