In 2008 one of our very first projects was for the charity GBA ships. Whilst fitting out their latest ship, 'Logos Hope', the technical team had a particular problem. During emergency announcements over the ship-wide PA, regulations state that the sound systems at the entertainment venues must be muted automatically. We were able to design and later install a simple piece of equipment that would gracefully mute up to 16 channels of audio. We developed the Mute 16 into our own product and have sold them into several further venues since.
