Cutting-edge audio visual solutions for your conference
If it wasn’t already obvious, at 1 Wimpole Street we’re pretty big on all things audio visual. It’s why we’ve invested in the very latest audiovisual equipment for our conference auditoriums, for example.
But with so much new tech to choose from…you might not really know what audio visual equipment best suits you and your conference. If that’s the case, don’t sweat it – we’re here to guide you through.
To start with, we’ve broken all our AV equipment down into 3 helpful categories:
1. equipment to help your presenters
2. equipment to help achieve your conference objectives
3. equipment you can hire for additional impact
Each category is explored in more detail below. So skip right on and start narrowing down the AV doodaas that are most useful to you.
1. Audio visual solutions for your presenters
Without your presenters, you wouldn’t have much of a conference to begin with. So we’ve thoughtfully built in a host of audio visual and staging features just for them:
A minimalist, flexible stage. It has plenty of space for your speakers to move or use a lectern as they wish, so they’re totally comfortable however they want to present.
A wireless clicker for slide presentations. So they can move around and be mobile whilst presenting, for the same reason as above. You don’t need us to tell you, a happy presenter equals a happy event organiser!
Confidence monitors so they can see what their audience sees. Instead of breaking eye contact to turn around every other slide, they can engage directly with the audience in front of them.
If your conference is in the Guy Whittle or Naim Dangoor auditorium, your presenters will also have access to:
A dedicated prep area with a live auditorium feed. So they’re fully with the programme by the time it’s their turn to go onstage. Plus, it gives them an element of VIP treatment, and who doesn’t love that?
2. Audio visual equipment to meet your aims
So now you know your speakers’ needs will be taken care of. But what about yours? Well, our auditoriums also offer plenty of conference audiovisual solutions with event organisers like you in mind.
For example, all 3 auditoriums are fitted with:
Wireless LED lighting that can match absolutely any colour. So you can fully brand your conference and perfectly tie in with the overall theme of the day.
An assisted listening system. So you can ensure that delegates who need hearing support don’t get left behind.
High speed wi-fi throughout the auditorium, and the rest of our building. So there’s plenty of bandwith for us to run all your important conferencing apps, while your delegates and presenters tweet, email, and browse to their hearts’ content…even using multiple devices. You’re welcome.
An AV control room/desk. It’ll be manned (or womanned) by a dedicated member of our in-house AV team, to control your screens, lighting, video recording, and sound as required. Because everyone deserves a personal techie whizz.
If you’re in the Guy Whittle Auditorium, you’ll also have the option to use:
An Ultra High Definition 4K projector. Displaying imagery so bright and crisp, seeing images on our 4K projector will make you’ll feel like you’ve just put glasses on for the first time. It’ll let you project onto the entire back wall and display multiple slides simultaneously – for example, social media feeds, branding, speaker details – meaning your delegates get a more enjoyable and immersive experience overall.
A cabled surround sound system with sub-woofer. In non techie-speak, that means you’ll have zero sound interference for your whole session, and full audibility throughout the auditorium.
Remote cameras with a 360 view. So you can live stream your conference and open it up to a global audience of thousands
The Max Rayne and Naim Dangoor auditoriums also include:
Conference catering to complement your audio visual offering
Technical wizardry has a way of making an audience hungry. So if your delegates are likely to get peckish while they’re with us, we offer a range of conference catering, including seasonal hot fork buffets, a catering-only package and an all-inclusive Daily Delegate Rate package. Either the Cavendish Room or Max Rayne Atrium can be booked as separate catering spaces, subject to your numbers.
