A Cinema for the Base

After the success of our cinema and meeting rooms at RAF Marham, we were asked by RAF Honington to look at an old tired hall on base. They wanted to refurbish the room and put a cinema in for the recruits and clubs with the ability to hold presentations and even open mic nights.

We presented three options with several budgets, the base had a complicated funding process and they were unsure of how much money they would receive for the cinema and the room refurbishment.

After six months of correspondence we finally got the go ahead on a very powerful version of the cinema we quoted for, picture and sound quality were paramount for the installation and we decided to use a fantastic new Laser projector from Optoma the ZU650 with standard lens to a 4m screen.

With 6000 lumens and a razor sharp image we were extremely happy with the picture results.

For the sound we used an ONKYO-TXRZ800 AV receiver which has excellent cinema sound reproduction, due to the size and dual functionality of the room we used the AV receivers pre amp outs, via a mixer unit and power amps this gave the room both an earth shattering cinema and venue audio with radio microphones for presentation.

Speakers supplied were EV EKX-12 with, 2 amazing EV ELX 118P active subwoofers for that cinema punch, with a great choice of equipment and stunning results this has become one of my most enjoyable installations.

Thanks to RAF Honington

“Steve
Thanks again for your hard work and patience in this project. It took 6 months from when I 1st contacted you and was far more complicated than anyone thought. The feedback I have had from your demonstration and the football the other night has been phenomenal, all positive.
The Station Commander is holding his weekly meeting in there on Monday and they are demonstrating the AV with a suitably loud film to promote the use and demonstrate the quality.”

Projector and Zoned Audio System

Were proud to have provided this prestigious North Norfolk Rugby and Football Club with a new 2 projector and zoned audio system to compliment the new extension and club house refurbishment.

Holt RFC now has a system that has three audio zones covering the new extension, the original bar area and outside for commentary or pitch announcements, the audio system is zoned in such a way that it can work as one zone with audio throughout or even three completely separate zones all playing different audio sources.

The projector and zoned audio system works hand in hand with the same flexibility so you can veiw and hear the same content on both projectors or totally different, this gives you the option to close off one room and have TV playing in the Bar while a meeting or function can play content via the multimedia wall connections that are in each zone.

To remove the need for remote control confusion and remotes getting lost, each zone has an independent Volume and audio input wall control as well as a projector wall controller.

This keeps controller error to a minimum and also helps to let anyone use the system without the need for system instruction every time the room is required, The cabinet can remain locked with the controls separate which helps problems arising due to incorrect cabinet settings.

We tackle all manor of audio and visual club, pub, department store and restaurant systems, each one is always visited, surveyed and designed specifically around the customers premises requirements. We might not be the cheapest but for customer satisfaction and expectation of their purchase we are defiantly the best.

4K HD HDMI Distribution Systems

Send Pictures far and wide 4K HD HDMI Distribution

While installing many domestic and commercial Audio Visual systems throughout Norwich and Norfolk, the subject of 4K HD HDMI distribution and how best to do it is a constant problem.

Actually the last sentence is slightly wrong, there has been a multitude of ways to distribute HD over Cat5e or Cat6e with converters, HD and HDMI distribution over IP with T base units or HDMI matrix switches and HDMI active splitters.

The problem has always been that high definition distribution has been a very costly business the cheap distribution equipment has been on occasion very problematic with no picture, random handshake problems. This has left only the tried and tested more expensive brands to give you the reliability customers need.

Recently their has been a multitude of new reliable 4k comparable HD distribution equipment at much more affordable prices, I wouldn’t go as far as saying it’s cheap as chips, but it certainly brings it into the price range to make it a more viable option for a wider range of customers.

There are several ways these 4k HD HDMI distribution systems are cabled, mainly with good quality HDMI cables or over category 5/6 or 7 data cable with active switch, matrix or converter box on sending end and a receiver box on the destination TV end. HD over IP network is also increasingly popular and has IP addressable converter boxes to change information back to HDMI feed cable.

So if you want to watch your HD Sky box, Apple TV and media players on all your TV’s in the glorious High Definition they were designed for, Give us a call because we’ve been here since before HD was even dreamed of and will be hear through the next and then the next generations of Television Picture Evolution.

Zoned Background Music Systems

Pub and Restaurant Audio System Specialist

With many years experience in Pub and Restaurant audio system from 2 or 4 zones to as large as you like, we can offer you an intelligently designed system with controllable input and volume for each music zone. The typical system will allow you the choice of 6 audio inputs that can be played differently or the same in each zone with the volume level of your choice in each zone, mixed with this we can add 2 wireless microphones which can be heard over the top of the music on your choice of zones at the level you want it in any given zone.

Equally important to pub and restaurant audio systems is the careful design and placement of the speakers themselves, background audio systems are designed to be just that, Background audio, with experienced design the audio should be light and all around you without noticeable direction. To few speakers and the volume has to be turned up to reach audio dead spots in the room, this causes sections of the room to be to loud and customers naturally shy away from them, turn it down and then you have audio dead spots which have no atmosphere subconsciously people keep away from them too.

 

This shouldn’t be an excuse to flood you Pub or restaurant with speakers everywhere, that’s just overkill, unfortunately a lot of the Pub and Restaurant audio systems tend to get bodged up with cheap domestic amps, HiFi bits mixed with mismatched speakers causing distorted sound and impedance overload that makes the amps cook red hot until they blow. People don’t realise that speakers are carefully matched to the amplifiers either in 4 or  8 Ohm impedance and with larger more common commercial 100v line systems, spend a little more on a balance well designed system and that will look and sound great for years and maintenance free years to come.
If you have a Pub, Bar or Restaurant Audio System in need of a decent zoned audio system in Norwich , Norfolk, Suffolk or Cambridge give us a call for an informal chat or free site survey, we can offer a wealth of experience to give you the atmosphere your venue deserves.

You, Me and IT makes three

TaylorMade IT Services

We have for quite sometime now been delving into the world of IT, mainly due to the increasing presence of ethernet and wireless connectivity required to drive content from the internet or PC and Tablets to display or audio equipment.

A server is the heart of any complex IT system and can fulfil many different roles including storing and providing data to the workstations, dealing with email, managing the network, limiting user access etc. Often you will find several servers working together to provide these services to the network.

Being the nervous system of your network this needs to have the ability to grow and change with your ever evolving company’s needs. Structured cabling is the industry standard on providing communion of any kind to every desk, workbench or display equipment. Being used from everything from computers to phones, printers CCTV and even access points you will be surprised what you can use this for.

Securing the cabling might seem a bit over kill but when something goes wrong with someone just plugging a cable in wrong can take hours of engineer time and down time to correct. This is the simplest thing with just locking access away, and it will make it look neater as well.

Meeting Room Projector or Big Display Screen

What presentation display would you choose ?

 

For many years meeting, training and board room presentation systems were dominated by a ceiling mounted projector beaming onto an electrically lowered projector screen, add a few speakers and input plates with maybe an automated wall controller and you’re meeting room projector system was complete.

Don’t get me wrong there is still life in the meeting room projector system for quite some time to come, especially in the rooms of a larger size or were a larger projector screen is required. But with the market invasion of ever larger display screens at ever decreasing prices, a market contender is becoming increasingly present in our installation choice especially in the smaller and middle sized rooms.

What are the advantages of a large display screen, well with the most common and comparable on price display screens being 60″, 65″ and 70″, the projector gets the advantage on the larger room as usual projector screen size is 2m – 3m’s wide on a 16:10 format, a clear winner on visibility across the room. Bring the room size down a bit and things start to get interesting.

Meeting room projector systems are affected by strong sunlight and suffer shadowing as well as being reliant on a multitude of extra equipment to complete the system, projector screens, speakers, audio amplifier, connection plates and ceiling mounts all of this then requires a higher installation cost, just when you thought that was enough you then have Lamp changes, maintenance and possible filter cleaning to contend with.

My shiny new screen invariably comes with built in speakers, a multitude of AV connections, is not as affected by sunlight or shadowing and comes with an ultra sharp 1080p full HD display which given current market could soon be commonly a 4K display as standard.

As if that didn’t make the projector feel worried all you need to do is hang it on the wall and cable to your connection points. Job done, with larger screens becoming more and more available and even large format interactive touch-screens flooding in it may not be to many years before we say goodnight to the humble meeting room projector.

Thanks to RAF Marham

 

Earlier in the year we were proud to install a fantastic dedicated cinema room for the RAF Marham community facilities in the family entertainments centre.

Using one of the latest Panasonic full HD LED projectors and a 7:1 surround sound system powered by an Onkyo AV Receiver coupled with the fantastic Flatbox Large Speakers by DLS Sweden, this room is now being enjoyed weekly by all the families on the base .

In addition to the Blu-ray movie playing functions we also made the room dual purpose with additional conference facilities, dual HDMI and VGA multimedia wall plates front and rear with a presentation lectern at the front, all this was put together with an easy to use remote free Pixie Plus wall controller with one touch on /off, source selection and system volume control.

The Base were so please with the cinema room they then commisioned us to update a further 4 areas of the community facilities, with a large 60″ screen and media plates in the Library, a welcome signage screen in the main hall and several other display screens, wall plates, lecterns and cabinets for presentations events.

 

Something new for us, we were asked to install a sensory room with lots of wall mounted interactive devices, lights and sounds to stimulate learning and play. A fantastic room for all the community to use and one we really enjoyed doing.

 

Special thanks to Flt Lt Gary Walker of RAF Marham’s community support for giving us the opportunity to show what we can do, we hope to see you again in the future.
