Auditoriums will be used for a wide variety of events, large and small, and so require a flexible AV setup that can adapt to these changing needs while enabling quick and consistent setup for presentations, seminars, shows and other events.
Often the auditorium will play a role in student open days and it may be one of the first spaces that students experience, so it’s important that it creates the right impression. Not only that, but as well as hosting student productions and presentations, auditoriums also welcome guest speakers. This makes it crucial that the technology within this space is consistent with such a multi-functional room and it matches the calibre of the events that will be held within it.
Outside of term time, the auditorium can prove a significant revenue stream by hosting external events. In order to tap into this opportunity, it’s important to install a professional-level AV system that will meet the demands for reliability and usability that these external users will have.
Also consider whether these events will benefit from being live streamed or recorded and stored for wider use. In this case, capture cards, encoders, online video platforms and the like will also need to be in place. Of course, quality is key here if you are going to engage your audience after the event so make sure everything from the audio set up to the broadcast system is of sufficient quality.
