The Hungry Horse pub and restaurant chain chose Bolton based integrators TVC Technology Solutions to provide a complete AV solution for its Rotherham Riverside pub in preparation for Euro 2016 in the summer. Hungry Horse operates more than 200 family value pubs in the UK.
The install includes a number of large LED screens alongside a distributed audio system to allow zonal control of the AV systems, including screens and audio in dining booths and in the garden/patio areas.
At the Riverside venue TVC Technology Solutions installed two Sony video projectors along with a number of Samsung LED screens for Sky Sports events. For the audio solution TVC Technology Solutions opted for a number of Cloud Electronics mixer amplifiers, amplifiers and loudspeakers.
Chris Whitlock, technical director for TVC Technology Solutions commented: “Hungry Horse requires a solution that is flexible enough to allow audio to be channelled into the zones where it is required but with a simple enough user interface to allow staff at the venue to make changes without being audio experts. We used the Cloud solution because of a number of factors including reliability, usability and price.
“We also chose to use the new Cloud ceiling speakers in this project. We sound-tested them and really liked the performance, the low-profile uniform appearance and competitive pricing.”
Simon Curtis, MD for Cloud Electronics added: “The Cloud products sit nicely alongside the Hungry Horse ethos of providing reliability and value. Whilst we have digital products in our range and in further product development, we firmly hold the belief user-friendly, reliable, analogue audio solutions provide sensible, cost-effective solutions for a larger number of projects.
“I am particularly pleased Hungry Horse chose a Cloud solution in this location, just a few miles from our HQ in Sheffield, where products are researched, designed, built and 100% tested. If England perform well in the forthcoming Euro 2016 tournament you might just find us nipping out to catch a few games at the Riverside.”
