Delegates and presenters at events will be able to take advantage of the latest presentation tech, with the brightest and sharpest image projection currently available. Leading edge communications techniques with digital flipcharts, advanced optical front projector screens and wireless HDMI facilities are being introduced at The Woodlands Event Centre, Wyboston Lakes Resort.
As part of a £3m plus investment to completely refurbish the conference and training equipment, £0.5m is being spent on the AV and IT network alone.
Craig Warner Director of IT at Wyboston Lakes Resort, comments “IT is now a key consideration for conference and event planners when selecting a venue. As part of our refurbishment of our meetings spaces, we have taken it one step further to ensure that our digital ecosystem is future proofed.”
Craig continues “Whatever the event requirements may be, a wide range of cutting edge options will ensure delegates have a packed, productive and valuable experience at Wyboston Lakes Resort”.
Presentations will be enhanced by the Panasonic PT-RZ series laser projectors with Infinity display screen, for the sharpest and brightest image quality currently available. Located in the Rosewood Suite they provide features such as immersive picture quality, low-maintenance stability and a dynamic user interface. Apple AirPlay is also available.
The Rosewood Suite, which will seat up to 450 theatre, will also feature fantastic Sennheiser digital mics offering studio quality audio and Crestron controlled lighting, allowing the organisers the ability to quickly set and adjust lighting levels to suit the demands of the event.
Smart Kapp-Digital Flip Charts will be available for use in training rooms, this will enable attendees to share content remotely with colleagues anywhere in the world when they write, draw and erase ideas on the capture board. They can do this by connecting a Bluetooth®-enabled mobile device to the capture board and scanning a Quick Response (QR) code or by tapping the Near Field Communication (NFC).
Meeting organisers will be able to increase engagement, collaboration and creativity among participants by using the 86” LED display which will be installed in The Yew technology theatre. The theatre will also be equipped with Dolby Atmos speakers providing an immersive sound experience. Meetings planners can also book a facility to join their colleagues around the world seamlessly or for more social aspects of the event such as evening entertainment in the form of ‘a night at the movies’ or ‘Karaoke’.
Built in applications are available for displaying content with easy connection to additional equipment, such as ClickShare or HDMI devices.
1.3Gb of high speed internet is offered across the site and in all facilities, this will ensure delegates receive good bandwidth, with no passwords or limitations, completely free. Wireless connectivity from PC, Mac, iOS & Android devices will allow delegates to interact easily and participate in the session.
To save delegates hunting for sockets and trailing across rooms, some of the new conference tables will come designed with integrated 13A and USB power sockets. Top tables also feature HDMI sockets and all principal rooms have wireless connectivity for laptops to stream seamlessly to large screens. Social tables and quiet spaces are also being introduced, where delegates can network with one another or take time out to catch up on work or personal matters, and they will also be equipped with 13A and USB power sockets.
Self-check-in kiosks for bedrooms are being added in addition to the venue’s well-staffed team of lobby hosts ensuring the check in process is both speedy and the guests’ data is kept secure. Digital signage both externally and internally will aid guests in getting to their meeting on time.
