Product Details

Owners of superyachts & exclusive properties as well as their esteemed guests expect to enjoy the services offered by a crew / staff around the clock. Whether at the dining table, on the sun deck or even in the middle of the night, it is reassuring to know that a steward / member of staff is only a call away.

While the Ming system incorporates the very latest technology to support a comprehensive feature set, the Ming button itself is intuitive to use. A short or long press is all that is needed to send one of two clearly distinct, pre-configured calls. Even though it is mobile, it is intelligent enough to always summon the steward / staff to the right place. Furthermore, if so desired, the discreet glow of the ring of LEDs circling the button confirms that a crew / staff member is already on the way.

The Ming perfectly matches any superyacht’s / property´s interior. Designed, engineered and completely hand-crafted in Germany, the button is made of the finest materials. The hand-polished precious-metal surface is bound in luxurious leather, while the level of precision engineering is equal to that of a Swiss timepiece. There are several bespoke options to choose from, including 24K gold-plating, coloured leather sleeves, individually tailored buttons – all according to the owner’s personality and style. Every possible wish will be fulfilled, from a rare platinum coating up to the use of custom leather supplied by the owner. Similarly, the Ming can of course be engraved with its owner’s insignia or yacht logo, etc.

For maximum compatibility, the Ming System communicates via WLAN as well as LAN, while also supporting Power over Ethernet. This allows for a fast and simple retrofit on practically any yacht / property without the need for additional wiring or antennae. Additionally, the Ming may be seamlessly integrated in an existing yacht / property automation system, such as CRESTRON or AMX. This allows for call management using the yacht’s own crew touch panels based on ready-to-use software modules. Finally, it is also possible to connect the Ming via an IP-based API to on-board communication systems such as PBX and Tetra.

True to the motto of effortless & luxurious simplicity, a technical member of staff can install a Ming system large enough to cater to the requirements of a 165-foot yacht or mansion in under 90 minutes. Without the assistance of an external technician. And even while at sea.

From the very moment it begins operation, the Ming promises complete reliability. Firstly, the built-in batteries are rechargeable, last for weeks and do not need replacing. Plus the need to recharge is signaled to the crew well in advance. Secondly, the integrated Self-Check function continually monitors the overall system and reports any anomalies before the guests or even the crew notice them, thus ensuring trouble-free operation twenty-four hours a day.

Ideally, steward calls will be received using the crew’s mobile devices along with the Ming App available for the iOS™, Android™ and BlackBerry®10 platforms. This naturally reduces the response time, since these devices are usually carried by the crew / staff, resulting in the call being noticed immediately.

It is also possible to connect Ming via an IP-based interface to such on-board communication systems as PBX, Tetra and others. This wide range of integration options has the added advantage of enabling a retrofit without necessitating a whole new set of hardware or calling in specialist programmers.
