EntertainmentLiquid Automation’s CEDIA award winning entertainment systems provide one simple, intuitive way to select and use any number of entertainment devices, including; radio, iPOD, Apple TV, DVD, audio video server, satellite TV, digital terrestrial TV and IPTV.

Multi Room high definition

Audio video is distributed around the yacht in true 1920×1080 high definition over a custom fibre optic or ethernet based media matrix.

Remote controls

Entertainment 2Our controllers give feedback directly to the wireless remote. This allows fast and easy searching for music from the media server or iPod docks without looking at your TV. Our remote controls mimic the intuitive iPod-like user interface. Importantly, our remote controls give a quick description of current activity with no danger of getting lost.

International worldwide systems

Our custom system has an extensive range of preloaded controls for satellite, terrestrial and digital decoders from around the world. At the touch of a button, the ship’s engineer can select the country the yacht is in, thereby selecting the correct control for that regions decoder. In addition, the radio frequency steps will change, allowing for a true worldwide capable entertainment system.

Automatic System health monitoring

The health of your system is monitored constantly. Should an amplifier, speaker or other device fail, the system will notify the failure locally to the ship’s engineer, as well as contact Liquid Automation.

Entertainment 3All equipment rack temperatures are constantly monitored, ensuring the system controller will notify all crew touch panels of the rising temperature. The system controller will also shutdown and protect the equipment from excessive temperature.

Custom screens and lifts

Liquid Automation can design and integrate many automated devices including custom TV/art work lifts to waterproof marine projection screens.

Video Conference

Entertainment 4The freedom to work seamlessly onboard can extend the available time to enjoy your investment. What better place to do work than in your own office at sea. Just because you are away from work does not mean you cannot check in from time to time. Dialling is a breeze with just a simple press of the preset contact from your touch screen and you are in business.

Intelligent source selection

We have the ability to adapt to specific vessel limitations and provide a seamless result for you, the end user.


If there are not enough decoders for every cabin, there will be a priority order. For example, if there was a yacht with 12 TV’s and only three decoders, the priority would be:

  1. Owners (has one dedicated)
  2. Guest areas including Saloon
  3. Captain
  4. Crew areas

When the saloon selects Sat TV first, it takes sat decoder #2 and will have full control. If any other area selects Sat TV on the remote, Sat TV #2 will show as “IN USE” by the saloon, and a banner will appear on the screen over the Sat TV page, showing that the saloon has control. Local control will not be available until the saloon either switches off or selects a different source. If a crew area selects Sat TV, no “IN USE” indication will appear on any guest remotes. So if a guest selects the same decoder they will take over the control and the crew area will get the “IN USE” indication.
