1 Wimpole Street will be upgrading the Audio Visual (AV) equipment in their Guy Whittle Auditorium this summer.  The key areas for this investment are upgrading the projection and screen to the latest technology and improving the over-all aesthetics of the stage.


The 300 seat lecture theatre will have £180,000 spent on installing a new true 4k ultra HD, high brightness projector which features multi-input display capabilities enabling additional screen space for branding, and themed background images to enhance the audience’s experience and to display more content without reducing the resolution of any source images.

Additional AV features will include;

  • A new wireless LED lighting system able to create full set production effects and architectural illumination
  • New remote cameras will be put in throughout the auditorium that will improve video production for recording, live streaming and video conferencing.
  • The stage area will be remodelled and have a more minimalist removable top table to improve visibility and flexibility for delegates and event organisers
  • A new surround sound system will be installed with state of the art capabilities, to introduce film preview screening as a new service.

Last year 1 Wimpole Street spent £115,000 on installing new equipment and upgrading their smaller, 150 seat Max Rayne Auditorium.  1 Wimpole Street as a venue never stands still when it comes to technology that will enhance the delegates’ experiences both immersive and interactive at meetings and events.  This significant investment is a further testament to this position that will no doubt keep 1 Wimpole Street up-to-date with the very latest advancements in AV technology, plus enhance 1 Wimpole Street’s reputation as a leading venue for event technology innovation.
