S/Y Christopher gets AV upgrade from Veritais

Veritais Ltd recently completed a major audio-visual refit on the six-year old 46m performance cruising ketch Christopher, when she revisited Pendennis, the yard where she was originally built.

Veritais carried out the installation while Christopher was undergoing other yard work, completely upgrading the whole system. David Milner of Veritais explained, “We had made some recommendations to the owner which we knew would enhance the system now that the yacht is six years old.”

The yacht has been divided into 14 different AV ‘zones’ which include the saloon, owners’ suite, guest and crew cabins, even the laundry, garage and engine room. Veritais fitted each zone with a video and audio media stored on a Network-Attached-Storage (NAS) Drive with four terabytes of memory capable of storing thousands of movies and music tracks.

iPads have been provided by Veritais for use as remote controls for the systems in every cabin including the TV, the media players, amplifiers and TV lifts. In the crew mess there is a hard-wired 7” in-wall touch screen for full control of all zones on board.

AV receivers with built-in airplay have been installed through the zones, allowing guests to stream music straight from their own devices to the cabin’s entertainment system.

Veritais has reprogrammed the existing control equipment with new software to administrate the new system. A new Control4 system processor has been added along with an automated Blu-Ray, DVD and CD ripper that will automatically rip (upload) a disc when inserted with no user input required.

Veritais had previously installed an array of equipment including TV screens and speakers, along with Apple TV and a HD projector in the cockpit directed at a 3m wide screen that lowers down from the cockpit deck head, for the full, open-air cinema experience. Guests can even view information from the chart plotter to see details of the voyage, in their own cabins.

The full system additionally links into the yacht’s closed circuit TV system for enhanced security and safety.
