The Queen Elizabeth Hall in Godmanchester (formerly Queen Elizabeth School) has recently undergone a major refurbishment. As part of this project, Godmanchester Town Council have contracted AV Xpert to kit out the community venue’s two main function rooms with projection and sound equipment. Work by AV Xpert is now complete, and the final touches are currently being carried out on the refurbishment, with the hall due to re-open for business very shortly.
The AV project has included the supply and installation of motorised screens, high-brightness projectors and compact PA systems in the two main function rooms at the newly refurbished venue. The projection and PA equipment will be used by the Godmanchester Town Council for Council meetings, but will also be available for the use of customers who hire the hall.
All major audio and video wiring has been run inside the walls to minimise the visual impact of the installation. Newly fitted wall plates allow presenters to connect a laptop via HDMI or VGA cable, and sound can be connected via 3.5mm audio jack. This makes the systems perfect for use by presenters, for conferences and for general video screenings.
System Functionality Increased with Custom Trolley
Further to the above, AV Xpert have also supplied a custom presenter rack trolley. This portable rack unit features a variety of sound equipment, and will connect directly to the audio inputs on the wall plates within the two function rooms, giving expandability to the installed audio system.
The trolley allows multiple sources to connect to the sound system at any one time via the incorporated mixer, providing enhanced functionality for presenters.
Included within the portable rack is an aux input to connect a laptop or external audio source, a multimedia player including CD player, USB player and Wireless Bluetooth audio connection, a dual wireless microphone system with a handheld mic and clip-on lapel mic and finally an integrated rack drawer offers convenient storage for system related components such as mics and cables when not in use.
Queen Elizabeth Hall Official Re-Opening
There will be an official re-opening of the Queen Elizabeth Hall to be held in the summer. As part of the re-opening ceremony a new plaque will be unveiled. AV Xpert are due to supply a live video link of the unveiling which will be displayed on the newly installed projectors.
