• Full Videoworks custom AV/IT installation on 67m Sparta
• Centralised media server for easy upgrade to streaming services
• Two more Heesens in build with Videoworks systems
• Close partnership between Videoworks and Heesen

Videoworks is very proud to announce that it supplied the complete audio-visual and IT package for the 67m custom Heesen yacht Sparta.The successful project marks the start of a close collaboration with the well-known Dutch shipyard, which specialises in full-custom, smart custom, and series of superyachts in the 50 to 80-metre sector.

Every Videoworks system is as different as the yachts on which they are installed, and Sparta’s equipment bears the strong stamp of the boat’s build owner. This is particularly the case with the graphical user interface, which had to complement the exceptional Winch interior of the yacht. Fully designed for elegant and harmonious family living, the interior’s strong use of colour and natural themes found a reflection in the MyInfo app which controls the AV system.

MyInfo is Videoworks’ award-winning app for iPad, now in its third generation, and it gives full control over audio and visual content across Sparta,” explains Stefan Nieuwenhuys, General Manager of Videoworks Europe BV. “This project demanded a highly customised graphical user interface, featuring some very specific icons and functions to match the way the build owner wanted to use the systems. We have a complete IT team in-house who did all the programming and design work to deliver that vision.

The equipment itself is high-end for a yacht of this size, and a first for Heesen. A big, centralised AV rack on the tank deck contains media servers and storage that can deliver audio and video content from to any of the outlets across the boat – from cabins to social areas inside and out. Speakers and subwoofers in each zone provide fantastic quality surround sound, and the pick of the many screens measures a generous 75 inches, flush fitted in the main saloon.
