Brookfields Junior School

We were contacted by the Brookfields to design and install an audio, lighting and visual system into the main hall of the school. The school hall did have an existing audio system which they had found not to be adequate for their needs.

“Following the demonstration of the LED equipment, we were won over. The level of support and professionalism has been wonderful.”

Our brief for the room was to provide a sound system with clear definition for spoken word, along with a full sound for the live performances and school discos. The system also needed to have the ability to add the audio for the schools own PC based Smart board, and laptop/DVD for presentations.

Along with the audio we were asked to provide an AV solution. We installed a new projector which projected a large image on a custom reflective wall surface.

The third solution we were asked to provide was for a lighting design to fill the room with colour. For this we installed 4 of the latest Martin mac301 LED moving heads high up in each corner of the room, with a large mirror ball in the centre of the hall.

Loudspeaker System
We decided that the best solution for the audio was to install 4 AA121 300watt loudspeakers with white painted finish into each corner of the hall, the system was configured so they could use the performance space at either side of the room.

QSC amplifiers were used to drive the speakers with a DBX Driverack PA+ controlling the audio.

The amplifier rack was located in a small room behind the main hall; a remote volume control was introduced into the main hall for easy access to the sound level and source control.

For the live performances we provided a custom built front of house wheeled cabinet to house the Soundcraft FX16ii 16 channel mixing console, twin CD players, radio microphone receivers. The cabinet also provided extra storage for microphones and cables.

The school had an existing Smart board system with a wall mounted PC. A Custom wall mounted cabinet was provided to house the existing PC terminal.

 

Lighting System

The school required part of the equipment to be portable enough to move to other class rooms, for this we supplied a custom made rolling rack to house 4 Miltec RGB lights along with a Zero 88 Jester lighting desk.

For the main hall system we included 4 Martin Mac301 LED moving heads, the very powerful LED wash was perfect for the size of the hall, flooding the room with bright colour.

The Avolites Pearl lighting console creates a variety of colour changing sweeping patterns across the walls, ceiling and floor, with an additional scene focusing all the lights onto the rotating mirror ball.

AV System

There were a number of ways that the school wanted to use the hall; as a lecture room, a performance space and as a cinema. With this in mind we wanted the largest image possible. The screen surface was a wall, which we coated with specialist reflective paint.

The Sanyo projector complete with wide angle lens provided a bright, clear 4m wide image.

The main hall has now been transformed into a space where the children can have interactive lessons, school discos, cinema.
