The impressive 54-metre motor yacht BURKUT has recently received a new audiovisual upgrade carried out by the leading supplier and consultancy of audio-visual equipment for super yachts – Veritais. Veritais surveyed the previous systems aboard BURKUT yacht and created detailed recommendations before continuing with the upgrade of all systems.
As a result, superyacht Burkut has an up to date audio visual and remote control system which uses the very latest technology and is extremely easy and convenient to operate from anywhere on board. Wi-Fi function was also optimised.
Replacements and upgrades by Veritais have included fitted iPod and iPad docks in the gym, main saloon and sky lounge, along with Apple TV with Optical Audio converter in all three areas, as well as upgrades to the main Creston System, which gives full access and control to the onboard systems.
Additionally, the Owner suite has received a full check of the Crestron system and all lower guest staterooms have been fitted with new processors and cabling to improve functionality. Each guest cabin has received a new remote control handset with dock. As in the rest of the yacht the handsets control remote functions to TV and audio.
All the yacht’s audio visual functions have been fully integrated using two VLAN network connections to allow the AV to be operated much more simply, and the wifi to be fully efficient and optimised.
A central laptop controls remote access to the Creston and LAN management which will be controlled by the ship’s engineer.
Veritais is a UK-based company, with the company’s engineering teams operating on a all across the globe. The Burkut yacht upgrade has taken place pre-season in Genoa.
“As with many of our projects, it was not just a case of providing equipment,” comments David Milner of Veritais. “Burkut’s original system needed extensive review and diagnosis to consider what improvements and replacements were needed. Following on from that we designed a new package of solutions and considered the best products for easy and reliable functionality.”
