Last week the audio visual and construction teams made further structural changes to our largest lecture theatre.  New side walls have been added to the edges of the stage, these frame the now extended screen area ready for the 4k projector to be installed in a couple of weeks’ time.

Space was made in the ceiling for the sub-woofer which will improve the overall audibility throughout the auditorium and form the 7.1 surround sound upgrade.

The final part of the week’s efforts was the building of the stage extension.  This small piece of new staging will allow presenters to get closer to the audience without blocking screen or line of site for the audience.  Some of the seats had to be removed to allow for the extension, however it was very important for us to preserve the number of seats at 300, so they have been relocated to other rows within the Guy Whittle auditorium.
