Putting on a show

In an auditorium environment, it’s essential that every audience member, no matter where they are seated, is able to see and hear what is being presented. To enable this, a high-quality audio, video and control system is a must.

However, it’s important to remember that these spaces will be used by many different people in a day and turnaround times may be tight, so opt for user-friendly equipment that doesn’t require any significant training.

In spaces such as auditoriums it’s also worth opting for a managed services solution. This can include AV Preventative Maintenance, which will ensure CDEC are always on hand to keep you auditoriums operating at their peak level.

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.

Auditorium Case Study

Madeley Academy

The requirement was for a complete AV upgrade including a new projector and screen to replace the existing 4:3 orientation projector, which had failed after four years, causing multiple problems, alongside an updated audio system for shows and performances. The academy also needed to replace its wireless microphones.

CDEC sent a project manager to take a look at the existing setup with one of the technical architects and created schematics for a new design which was approved by the school.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most asked Questions about Auditoriums

This will depend on a number of factors, including the scale and scope of the project and the technology being installed. Once we have an agreed design we will create a comprehensive schedule for each element of the project which we will communicate with you. Your project manager will also be on hand throughout the project to communicate any changes. Wherever possible we will work within your requirements in order to keep downtime to a minimum.
It’s impossible to put a specific figure on projects such as this as there are so many variables. However, as we’ve completed everything from complete high-end solutions through to more simple system refreshes, we are confident we can find a solution that fits every budget.
Of course. Post installation we will be on hand to carry out snagging, user training and familiarisation.
At the initial consultation we’ll talk through your requirements, how the space is currently, used, any areas you’d like to develop and any specific requests you have before creating an initial design. The more information you can supply the better – and it’s great to get the input of users as well as tech teams when embarking on such projects – but we will visit the site and meet relevant stakeholders to make sure we get all the information we need.
