CASE STUDY: FAN Mallorca Shopping Mall

A Spanish shopping showstopper

Published: 04/04/2017


Fan Mallorca, situated near to Palma Airport, is a huge, multi-zone retail mall requiring the best proven audio quality management available. With a total investment of around 190 million euros, the venture saw 2,400 people involved in the construction of the centre, which has a host of flagship stores.

Dolores Bañon, the director of promotion and development for Carrefour Property España, sums up the size of the project. “The Balearics will never have seen so many top brands under the same roof,” she said. Covering more than 70,000 square meters, a distributed system had to be implemented.

To meet the challenge of outstanding audio and control throughout the Mall, Spanish specialist distributor Neotecnica came on board to oversee all aspects of the technical installation. The reliability and proven track record of Peavey’s MediaMatrix NION processors made them the preferred choice, with an optical CobraNet fibre network distributing the sound throughout the separate areas of the mall via a Cisco based network with over 2Km of fi bre and copper cable runs.

2x NION n6 processors manage the core audio for more than 55 different zones, all audio channels are processed and transmitted from the NIONs to a total of 13x Crest Audio Ci amplifiers via CobraNet. In addition to the Ci amplifiers there are 2x nWall CobraNet I/O panels located in the mall for patching 2 channels In and 2 channels out of the MediaMatrix system.

Each area of the mall now has its own playlists that change automatically, depending on the surrounding situations, which means visitors are able to enjoy a vast range of retail therapy, and there is sure to be something for everyone throughout the 120 stores to be found within the Mall.

Fan Mallorca Shopping Mall now ranks as Spain’s premier shopping experience, with an audio system that is fitting for such surroundings.
