proAV was asked to deliver extensive professional audio visual systems to facilitate the broadcasting, recording and distribution of events at the newly refurbished Supreme Court building in Parliament Square.
A wide range of fully integrated AV technologies including the industry’s most sophisticated broadcasting, display and control hardware and associated monitoring, presentation and post-production software formed part of an innovative, highly specialised solution.
Sophisticated audio visual equipment that incorporated the industry’s latest cutting edge technology was installed throughout the building, notably the court’s three chambers, the main gallery, a secondary gallery which serves as a Non Linear Edit Suite (NLES), exhibition space and outside broadcasting units. All monitoring, recording, equipment racks and control systems were housed in a central gallery with a studio console with seating for three engineers.
The Supreme Court now has the capability to digitally record court proceedings and store footage on a centralised server. The court is the first in England and Wales to televise court sessions and the new facilities will allow the distribution of live and pre-recorded feeds to the NLES for post-production and/or outside broadcast units and on to Millbank Studios in Westminster for distribution to Sky, BBC, ITN and the Press Association.
