Cary Ali is a long range cruising vessel designed to provide a comfortable living and entertaining environment. As well as being a home away from home, the vessel will also play host to a number of guests. This requires a system as discrete and simple to use as possible without compromising any features or functionality.
In order to achieve discretion, the majority of equipment is completely hidden from plain view leaving only the bare minimum in sight. TV’s in major areas are hidden and automated so that they appear only when video sources are selected, while ceiling mount speakers have been custom painted to match the deckhead materials. This discretion works to ensure that the comforts of a home environment are maximised.
The custom designed user interface ensures that guests are able to easily access a range of great entertainment and environmental options with little to no knowledge of the system’s technical operation.
HD video distribution is done via 2 Digital Media Matrices. One is dedicated to entertainment while the other handles all the navigation sources. The navigation DM gives the captain the ability to select and control any of 9 navigation sources via 5 monitors and 2 control stations. The 2 DM’s are also linked to give the rest of the boat access to the mast camera, navigation PC as well as a ship monitoring PC. Content is transported throughout the boat via fibre in order to provide optical isolation from any potential interference as is common in high-density cabling environments such as a boat.
A central Kaleidescape server housing 26TB of storage ensures endless hours of audio visual entertainment distributed throughout the vessel. Guests have access to the mast camera which allows a full 360 degree view of the vessels surroundings in day, night and thermal modes. The owner can take control over guests but above all, the pilothouse gets priority for navigational purposes.
A remote access PC and network monitoring appliance have been incorporated into the system. Full drawings and documentation have been provided to the vessel also. This allows remote system monitoring and servicing worldwide.
