Edge Hill University - Tech Hub-
Welcome to the Tech Hub
As part of the £13m development of the new Tech Hub Building - the new bespoke home for Edge Hill University's Department of Computing - GV Multimedia provided a range of AV systems. The project included the integration of equipment into multiple teaching spaces to facilitate video projection, lecture capture and audio reinforcement as well as providing a Games Development Lab with dual 98" 4K display screens
Manchester's team also succeded in providing a solution for a building wide, 4k centralised digital signage solution, which included a 2x2 4k video wall to allow for the display of multiple images, from both centralised and local sources throughout the building.
Arguably the highlight (and most challenging element) of the project involved taking on a complex Harvard-style lecture theatre. The space required laser projection as well as integration with the building's impressive CAVE (Computer Augmented Virtual Environment). This required a solution to provide communications and manage sources, within the theatre, enabling students to share the experience from the CAVE.
A Customer Pleased
Donald Moffatt, Media Technology Development Manager was delighted with the result, and wrote to Development Director, Brian Davies to express his gratitude:
"GV Multimedia was appointed to provide a range of AV solutions with the new Tech Hub Building at Edge Hill University during the summer of 2016. Systems within the building included a Harvard Style Lecture Theatre, 4K Digital Signage Solution with centralised source distribution, 4K Video Wall and multiple traditional teaching spaces. They were also challenged in providing a solution to provide communications and manage sources, into the Harvard Style lecture theatre, enabling students to share the experience from our Computer Augmented Virtual environment.
During the delivery of the project GV worked extremely effectively with both the building contractor and university staff to address the challenges presented, including building delays and changes. GV provided innovative solutions that ensured the maximum benefit was realised in every space, overcoming building fabric challenges that became apparent during the installation process.
GV's engineers delivered finished systems of an excellent technical standard, both on-time and on budget. They showed a true attention to detail both during the project installation
and in the post completion documentation which was of an excellent standard.
GV Multimedia's technical capabilities, flexible approach and commitment to delivering on the commitments they made ensured the project exceeded the expectations of the University. "
