Sound Enhancement System in Chamber
After a successful Sound Enhancement System within the House of Commons was installed, we were invited by the Parliamentary Works Directorate complete an installation within the House of Lords Chamber, incorporating over 80 microphones and 500 loudspeakers.
Working with Glensound Electronics, we designed and installed a custom manufactured system employing advanced audio techniques to overcome problems within this historic building. Each of the 80 microphones and 500 loudspeakers is computer controlled to accommodate the widely differing sound levels that are experienced from a near empty to full chamber of over 600 vociferous debating members.
Installation of the new system was very time critical in that the old system had to be removed and the complete new system installed, tested and commissioned during the Summer Recess. We achieved by using computer modelling techniques to verify the design.
