Unique LED Lighting: Pimhill Barn Project

Over the last two days, our team has been working on a very exciting project. We were asked to install a unique LED lighting system in the gorgeous Pimhill Barn near Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The venue is licensed for marriages and civil partnerships and is also suitable for wedding receptions and parties. The rustic setting provides clients with a unique atmosphere for their special event. Pimhill wanted to offer more bespoke lighting for their clients, to really show off the barn’s unique structure.

We installed eighteen Chauvet 80w RGB Wash lights. The lights can be programmed to display a whole spectrum of colours. As a result, visitors to Pimhill can use the barn as a blank canvas, with the lighting creating a truly unique atmosphere. The LED lights are controlled with a simple push-button system from Anytronics. This allows users of the barn to easily set the scene for their party or event.

If you’re the owner of a party or wedding venue, having a bespoke lighting system can help you offer so much more to your clients. This is because lighting can completely transform a space. Therefore, our lighting services can make your event space much more versatile. Contact us today for a detailed quote. We will visit your venue and tailor our unique LED lighting system to suit you.

Servicing a video wall in Manchester

team member servicing video wallWe were asked to service a video wall at St Patrick High School in Salford, Manchester. Their system was made up of 4 by 55-inch panels. It was no longer working, having been installed over 5 years ago. The system used a VGA laptop connection, and a Bright Sign digital signage module via an HDMI connection. However, the school was using an old laptop which had no HDMI port. This was limiting their use of their video wall.

We started by testing the AV: Link HDMI distribution box with our service laptop. This brought video and sound onto the screens. The client then told us that they’d never heard a sound come from the system before now. Next, we tested the VGA distribution, and there was no signal. When we reported this back to the School Business Manager, they requested that we remove the faulty VGA. Finally, we installed a new HDMI connection for the PC and provided an HDMI switch. This switch can route the school’s PC to the video wall.

In total, this service call took 5 hours. We had two team members on the job, and they completed it on the day. All of the old system’s VGA equipment was removed, and a new HDMI service was connected. When the screen system was reassembled and tested, it was fully functioning. As a result, our client can use their video wall to its full capability.

Audio Visual Systems for Headteachers Conference Event

audio visual system for conference

Sound innovations were very proud to provide Salford Primary Headteachers Conference event with bespoke audio and visual systems. This years conference was held at The Mere Hotel and Spa in Cheshire. Our service included bespoke stage lighting and sound system for the stage. We also supplied Prowise and BenQ interactive touchscreens for presentations.

We love working closely with schools. The education sector is where it all began for us with the creation of the School Bell System back in 2011. So, being able to work at such a prestigious event was an honour.

Our very own managing director, Rob, also provided entertainment for both evenings of the conference. It’s no secret that Rob has over 25 years experience as a DJ, and it’s something he still has passion for. So if you’re arranging a conference, why not have your audiovisual systems and entertainment rolled up in one package?

Salford Headteachers’ Conference also needed a function band. We got in touch with Sonic Boom, who were happy to perform.
