Hungry Horse is getting ready to welcome thousands of football fans in more than two hundred family value pubs later this year; with the company opting to install new AV equipment at one of its locations to quench the thirst of those looking for UEFA Euros 2016 action.
To upgrade its AV prowess, Hungry Horse enlisted the help of Bolton-based AV integration company TVC Technology Solutions to provide a complete audio visual solution for its Rotherham Riverside public house.
To encourage patrons to stay longer and enjoy the summer experience, Hungry Horse has invested in a number of large LED screen solutions alongside a distributed audio system to allow zonal control of the audio and visual systems, including the provision of screens and audio in dining booths and outside in the garden/patio areas.
TVC Technology Solutions, a family business established in the mid-90s by Jim Brown and his two sons Matthew and Daniel is part of the TVD Group. The company has enjoyed a long established relationship with Greene King, operators of the Hungry Horse chain.
At the Riverside venue TVC Technology Solutions installed two Sony Video projectors along with a number of Samsung LED screens, all allowing Sky Sports events to be seen and heard easily. For the audio solution TVC Technology Solutions opted for a number of Cloud mixer amplifiers, amplifiers and loudspeaker products.
Chris Whitlock, technical director for TVC Technology Solutions comments: “Hungry Horse requires a solution that is flexible enough to allow audio to be channelled into the zones where it is required but with a simple enough user interface to allow staff at the venue to make changes without being audio experts. We used the Cloud solution because of a number of factors including reliability, usability and price”.
“We also chose to use the new Cloud ceiling speakers in this project”, added Whitlock “we sound-tested them and really liked the performance, the low-profile uniform appearance and competitive pricing”.
Simon Curtis, Managing Director for Cloud Electronics adds: “The Cloud products sit nicely alongside the Hungry Horse ethos of providing reliability and value. Whilst we have digital products in our range and in further product development, we firmly hold the belief user-friendly, reliable, analogue audio solutions provide sensible, cost-effective solutions for a larger number of projects”.
“I am particularly pleased Hungry Horse chose a Cloud solution in this location, just a few miles from our HQ in Sheffield, where products are researched, designed, built and 100% tested. If England perform well in the forthcoming Euro 2016 tournament you might just find us nipping out to catch a few games at the Riverside”.
