London South Bank University

iControl AV won the contract to design, supply and commission a multi-room music and PA system for London South Bank University. The huge leisure facility at the university has undergone refurbishment and the entire cabling infrastructure and sound system had to be re-designed and commissioned to coincide with a grand unveiling of the new facilities in summer 2014.

The brief was to provide a robust, powerful, high quality music system that could be easily operated by members of staff and gym class teachers for various fitness rooms across the building. In total we had to provide independent control over volume and source of music to 12 areas throughout the building.

Work Undertaken

The Technology

  • 2 kilometres of high grade speaker cable alone was fitted!
  • A clever Cloud Mixer allowed different audio feeds for different rooms
  • Several of the rooms had ‘local input’ plates where class teachers could plug their own source and control the volume within that room
  • A sophisticated Paging microphone allows the staff to easily announce to any selected room or all rooms together from reception
  • Gym members can enjoy powerful, distortion free music from any of the fitness suites
  • Particular attention was paid to the Spin class room where we fitted 2 very powerful PA speakers to cope with demanding volume levels in this area.

The Result

A total overhaul and a huge improvement. The speakers blend in to the décor and are much more discrete. The power to size ratio is impressive, particularly in the larger rooms where more volume is required.

Staff can now easily select radio, steamed music, MP3’s or CD’s to play in any of the areas.

The class teachers that come in are very happy with the quality of the sound system and tell us the power and clarity really helps them provide a more engaging class without having to worry about music dropouts and distorting speakers.
