POLARaudio & Saville AV unite in Leeds
19 June 2012
UK - POLARaudio working in partnership with Saville Audio Visual were commissioned to design and install a customised audio solution for Leeds United's new conference suite at the Elland Road stadium.
The East Stand Conference Suite at Leeds United's Elland Road stadium is part of one of the UK's leading conference and event venues. The conference suites are presented on three levels. With capacity for 300 delegates on the second floor and four separate areas incorporating the upper levels, each suitable for 150 delegates, the venue is popular for business meetings and conferences and provides spectacular, panoramic views across the Leeds city centre.
Leading integrator Saville AV worked in conjunction with POLARaudio to provide a PA system for the five corporate hospitality suits in the new east wing extension. The solution provides each of the presentation rooms within the conference suite with playback of media and full AV presentation facilities. All rooms are equipped with stereo laptop input, stereo auxiliary input, four beyerdynamic radio microphones including handheld and lavalier options and an induction loop audio system.
Due to the constraints of the sizes and shapes of the rooms, and the low ceilings, a combination of forty Australian Monitor ceiling speakers and sixteen high powered front-fill speakers work together to offer the most effective coverage and intelligibility of sound. The entire system is managed via a Biamp AudiaFlex advanced digital sound processor for the processing and routing of all audio signals in throughout the facility.
Mark Bromfield, business development manager POLARaudio commented, "The project was a resounding success. We worked closely with the Colin Firth and Darren Barber of Saville AV. Working with a prestigious client like Leeds United FC there were numerous challenges to overcome, not least the issues posed by installing a multi-channel radio microphone systems in close proximity, within a limited frequency range."
