CARBON IT SERVICES carefully considered the challenges and the budgetary constraints, and engaged in a diagnosis and verification activity on site, fully testing and documenting the existing environment and equipment in use, including viewpoints, lighting and acoustics, before researching the best available solutions for Boxgrove’s budget.
Following an open, friendly discussion between both parties, the following solutions were agreed upon and deployed:
An LED HD projector was ceiling mounted through the suspended ceiling, and a motorised 84″ wall mounted projector screen installed to produce a crisp 84″ picture.
The existing aged amplifier was replaced with a suitable alternative, and installed into their existing AV cupboard nearby.
2 suitably positioned speakers were wall mounted on their side of the project screen, and connected via carefully hidden cabling back to both the AV cupboard and acoustically tested, to produce pass-through audio for any visual presentations.
2 handheld wireless microphones were installed, configured and fully tested to work together with the setup to aid the presenters.
The 6 existing wireless receivers for the microphones were mounted-at-height to avoid interference on ground level, and boost the range of their transmissions. The channels were tested, and then reconfigured, to avoid any interference or overlap with other installations elsewhere on the premises. This was supplemented with 2 additional wearable microphone headsets and 2 additional handheld wireless microphones.
The existing wall mounted speakers were corrected in their alignment within the acoustic setup, and a new physical mixer console, driven by an iPad app interface (so they could leverage an existing iPad and avoid unnecessary cost) was installed.
