Portsmouth University

In early 2018, the University joined the SUPC framework in order to open their options up to more Audio Visual integrators. They also had the view of finding a company they could work alongside in the long term, to ensure continuity. The tender went out in January 2018, with the requirement to upgrade 19 teaching spaces outlined. The integrator would be required design, supply, install and commission high quality AV and associated equipment

Installation began, as scheduled, on July the 2nd. One team of engineers attended the site for the first three weeks, completing installations in the Barnaby building. 18 standard rooms were installed over a six week period. Eleven of the rooms featured NEC projectors whilst two have BenQ displays. The projectors are connected to the lectern over the network, negating the use of multiple cables.

 

They were joined on July 30th by another team, as they moved to the Portland building. This phase of the install included a complex lecture theatre install, featuring three NEC data projectors. The Projectors, are housed in a booth at the back of the theatre, there are two viewing options, the central projector or the two either side. The projectors are capable of producing a 2 x 2.3/4m image from a throw distance of 12m.

Newcastle University Business School – Video Wall

The University required a signage upgrade in their reception area. They wanted functionality and the ability to put display varied content, as well as give students and visitors that ‘wow’ factor. Roche were contracted to carry out the work in summer 2018, having been successful with the tender application.

The Video wall was installed over a one week period in August, with two of our engineers on site. An Extron TLP pro touch panel was added for ease of use and programmed by Roche programmer Dave Evans. The panel is located behind reception and will allow the University to effortlessly switch between the inputs.

Newcastle University AV manager Andy Ramsey has this to say about the project, ‘With such a tight deadline, we have been impressed with Roche’s ability to not just meet, but exceed all our demands. They have delivered a high quality solution, that will give our students and visitors that ‘wow’ factor and allow the University to display its content in a unique, eye-catching way.’

White Rose Academies Trust

169 SMART Boards Installed Across Three Academies

The Academy initially had an enquiry for a couple of Smart interactive screens. Roche carried out a successful install of the screens in the Leeds East academy. The install was well received by the Academies and the decided they would benefit from an extensive upgrade of the establishments interactive teaching facilities across all three buildings.

 

Smart Touchscreens where chosen as they offer a continuation of the current technology the Trust uses and therefore the teachers were familiar with how to operate them. The 6000 series, a winner a ‘Best of BETT 2017’ teaching and learning award, offers 8-point touch capabilities, 4k Ultra HD
resolution, and smart IQ which allows for a seamless more engaging teaching experience.

Smart training sessions where carried out in early September to ensure
teachers where competent in their use. Service and support is still ongoing from Roche and SMART

Hope Street Xchange

Project: Video Wall, Conference Rooms, Meeting Rooms, Boardroom & Room Scheduling

Hope Street Exchange is a £9m Centre for Enterprise and Innovation – a contemporary workspace for a new community of innovation-led businesses. We were awarded the contract to fit the facility with a wide range of AV systems including an eye-catching 10 screen video wall greeting visitors at the lower entrance and a variety of meeting rooms and boardrooms as well as a large Conference Space. This space consisted of back-to-back Conference rooms with a retractable wall, allowing one large Conference Space to be easily created. All of the meeting space solutions were focused on BYOD and wireless presentation principles, allowing users to quickly and easily present information

A building-wide Room Booking system has Crestron touch panels located outside every room. These panels not only indicate the room availability, but also allow users to control the meeting schedule and appointments directly from the panel itself. The Installation was completed in 2017 and we are already looking at ways to integrate additional AV and enhance the systems and solutions on offer.

Emerging Technologies Lab: University of Portsmouth

Towards the end of 2017 The University of Portsmouth went out to tender for the supply and installation of an audio-visual system designed to demonstrate emerging internet technologies. The University went out to the HEPCW framework to find a competitive supplier with the skills and abilities to deliver the project.

 

In December 2017 Roche Audio Visual were awarded the contract to supply and install the system with a February 2018 target date for the completion of the project. The system built around Crestron’s Digital Media product range was designed to be cutting edge with the ability to manage 4K resolutions throughout.

Each of the displays built-in smart capabilities where represented on the touch screen to allow the users of the room to fully explore the technologies within the displays.

The installation team worked with the client to ensure project objectives were met and the installation completed on schedule.

Oastler Building: University of Huddersfield

 Project: Teaching Spaces, Lecture Theatres and Meeting Rooms

The Oastler Building at the University of Huddersfield is a brand new £27.5m building, providing a new home for the Law School and the School of Music, Humanities and Media. We were awarded the contract in 2016 to supply and install a wide range of AV Systems, including four 300 seat lecture theatres along with a variety of teaching spaces, meeting rooms, offices and communal areas. The four theatres are located on two separate floors and sit back to back with each other, divided by a retractable wall when open turns the theatres into a large event space. Throughout the building they are 24 teaching spaces consisting of Seminar, Synergy and Media Rooms along with a Court Room.

The four theatres are located on two separate floors and sit back to back with each other, divided by a retractable wall when open turns the theatres into a large event space.

Hitachi LPWU9750 projectors were used along with JBL 65 P/T speakers.

Lecterns were built offsite by our engineers, then delivered, installed and integrated with an Extron control system at the University. The Extron control system allows for all the audio visual capabilities in the room to be controlled via the lectern.

The installation was completed in 2017 before the building was officially opened by Prince Andrew.

Federation of Abbey Academy

21 Sahara M-touch screens installed across two Academy Sites

The Academy went out to tender on the CPC framework in January 2018, with the premise of updating their current classroom systems. After assessing the tender, Stafford Lund decided that the M-Touch was the best solution for the Academy and fit all the relative criteria.
A demonstration was organised, and carried out on the 30th of January by Area Manager Anthony Christie. The screen scored highest against other competitive manufactures based on specification, application and total cost of ownership of the project. Roche provided the screens with a five year on-site warranty, Oktopus annotation software and Hitachi 120w soundbars.

Install began in early February and was carried out by Roche’s own in-house engineers.  The existing equipment was removed from the site free of charge and disposed of under WEEE. After the completion of the Install on the 2nd March, a follow up training session was organised to ensure the end users got the most out of their new technology. The session was carried out by Anthony Christie on the 13th of March, with on-going support still being provided.
