Audio Visual System Installation
New Art Exchange
The New Art Exchange (NAE) is a contemporary arts space in Nottingham that celebrates the region's cultural richness and diversity. It is the largest gallery in the UK dedicated to diverse contemporary visual arts. The venue presents an ever-changing programme of art exhibitions, creative activities for families and young people, film screenings, symposiums, lectures, festivals and a live performance programme of music, dance and theatre.
NAV were commissioned as the AV installation company to upgrade the existing system in the main performance space, which included a traditional 4:3 projection screen, ceiling hung projector and four speaker PA system, all controlled from an AV Control Booth at the rear of the studio. The client requested the project was to be undertaken as a ‘staged’ installation to maximise budget availability, with the AV installation work to take place over a 12-18 month period. Following a detailed site survey to enable us to fully understand the client’s requirements, four separate quotations were produced separating the key audio visual upgrades in to staged installations.
The most urgent required AV upgrade was to the dated 4:3 aspect ratio projector, with its reduced light output, due to its length of service. The client expressed their intention to install a larger (16:10) 5.5m projection screen at a later stage in the upgrade programme. NAV therefore specified a projector that would still provide 4:3 projection whilst the current screen was in use, but was multi-format and therefore ready for the larger, 16:10 screen when installed at a later date.
Additionally as part of the stage 1 process, the existing analogue VGA input (located near the stage) was upgraded to an Extron HDMI & VGA Wall plate, transmitting the video signal digitally over CAT6 to the projector. The wall plate featured an auto-switching function, automatically selecting a connected laptop (HDMI or VGA) this feature simplified the system operation for the multi-user environment.
