ITSL Group were tasked to design and install a new audio visual system into BLMs prestigious seminar suite in the city of London offices. The conference room is for both internal and external training and client presentations, due to the rooms dimensions multiple displays were required with a large central projection screen with a repeater plasma displays. The space requires a high quality voice reinforcement for multiple microphone users and also suitable for program audio.
The room is predominately for video presentations and voice reinforcement, utilising the three wireless lapel microphones, one lectern gooseneck microphone and three wireless hand held microphones. All the microphone pass through a comprehensive feedback elimination system with the levels controlled via a mixing desk.
ITSL Group specified a 12 channel mixing desk to enable the support staff to fine tune the room whilst the presentations are in progress, they also have the ability to switch video sources to enable a seamless session. The audio is fed to six Turbosound Impact 35T speakers whilst the video is displayed via a 3000 lumen Sanyo projector and a two 42” Panasonic plasma display, this is controlled by a Kramer video switch which switches their video and audio outputs, they can choose between the lectern laptop and the in-house PC sources.
The installation has been a great success
