Upgraded! The Telford Theatre!

 

Autumn time is creeping up on us, and we have been using our downtime to carry out maintenance and upgrades to our building. At One Great George Street, we combine classic Edwardian architecture, with the latest technology for your convenience; and we are excited to share one of our biggest upgrades to date!

In partnership with RunTech, new audiovisual equipment has been installed in the Telford Theatre

This new projection system allows us to fill our expansive 10m x 3m screen fully. We also have a new switching system that allows us to send high-quality content in a more flexible way to the screen and comfort monitors, giving clients a hugely upgraded experience. The whole system runs on a 4K60P network for the highest quality of playback ever.

 

That’s not all!….

New laser projectors from Panasonic and an Aquillon switcher from Analog Way power the new system. This allows us to display content in a 4:3 and 16:9 ratio as we have previously; but also allows us to fill the entire new screen surface. Clients will be able to utilise this space for additional content such as sponsor logos, live to screen video, & ultra widescreen slides, as well as Twitter feeds and live polls.

 

All these changes will add that extra touch of technological ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your lectures, conferences, ceremonies, and meetings to name a few. We are open for socially distanced show rounds if you wish to sample the aforementioned.

2020 Weddings – To Be Or Not To Be?

 

There are so many things we could say about 2020, it has been an incredibly unique year so far, and unfortunately, many have had their weddings cancelled or postponed due to the pandemic. Shakespeare had a valid point when he wrote the play ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. However, all is not lost! There are still options for those who would like to enter the state of wedded bliss this year!

If you were planning on being wed before a large number of guests, due to social distancing regulations, you will have had to drastically cut this number – however, these guests can still witness your vows in real-time.

We have created two packages for live streaming your big day! Contact NikkiH@OneGreatGeorgeStreet for more information.
