The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh has recently completed the upgrade of the historic Great Hall. RCPE called in Audio Light Systems Ltd as they could provide audio, lighting and AV all from under the same roof. The brief was to install lighting, system control & audio in extremely sensitive surroundings.
The audio system is primarily for conference work, but is also used for foreground music at functions. QSC Acoustic Design speakers were installed as they are compact in size while still being horn loaded. The Acoustic Design subs were also discretely installed in existing wall cavities.
A Crestron processor is controlled wirelessly with an iPad or iPod, which gives user flexibility while also giving a great library of music. The Crestron processor controls the iLight lighting & QSC audio system (via an Allen & Heath DSP) using both presets and individual channel control. Due to the diverse lighting control protocols needed, Dali, DSI & leading edge dimmers, iLight control was chosen it is a single box compact solution with low noise operation.
Dave Blackie, Senior AV technician, RCPE said of the project “When doing a project like this, it’s great just dealing with one company, rather than two or three. Audio Light Systems quality of installation is excellent. The end result really did exceed our expectations.”
