TVD Group, a leading AV technology supplier and installer of commercial AV projects, has opened the TVD Experience Centre, self-billed as the Tech Hub of the North.
In over a year-long upgrade and £600,000 investment of its existing headquarters in Bolton, the opening of the TVD Experience Centre is seen as “the crowning jewel” for a business that has been the driving force in AV technology in the north of the UK for nearly 30 years. The company recently transitioned to an employee-owned business, with the Trust now owning 51% of the shares of the business.
The TVD Experience Centre features immersive display areas, innovative products and fully integrated solutions from TVD’s key partners including Samsung, Philips, LG and over a dozen big-name brands in the AV sector.
Highlights at the Experience Centre include Samsung’s £130,000 110in ‘The Wall’ MircoLED display, Vestel’s latest commercial display range, TVs from Mitchell & Brown, and premium commercial audio products. Innovative technologies on show include LG Electronics’ LED 136in all-in-one smart series, Philips power-free Tableaux ePaper displays and Accenta hanging digital posters.
TVD Group grew out of a TV retail business, with Jim Brown and his sons Matthew and Daniel opening TV and Video Direct in 1996, and has grown to be one of the UK’s leading AV technology distributors to the commercial and retail trade, including launching its own TV brand, Mitchell & Brown. TVC Technology Solutions, a division of TVD Group, that supplies a range of industries including betting, retail, leisure, hospitality, care, education, sports stadia and corporate venues.
“We wanted to offer both new and existing customers the opportunity to explore the very latest AV technologies from some of the world’s biggest brands, fully integrated into complete solutions in one engaging venue in the north of the UK,” said Mat Brown, co-founder and director. “The TVD Experience Centre provides a level of unrivalled personalisation for clients who want to experience what technology can bring to their business and how it can enhance their brand.”
