UKTV Case Study
Creating a space to inspire can be a challenge but in partnership with our customer UKTV we have done just that and integrated bespoke user friendly technology to enhance the workspace.
UKTV is an award winning commercial broadcaster reaching over 41m viewers every month. The network embraces technology to drive innovation and creativity. Having worked with UKTV for a number of years, this was a great opportunity for us to showcase our expertise.
An industrial look and feel was important, so we had to consider how every design element would fit in the space.
Designing bespoke solutions is one of our specialities. We listened to UKTV’s requirements and considered how technology could compliment and enhance the working environment.
Quality control is important to great TV, so we designed and installed a technology packed screening room.
In addition, in the main work areas bespoke video walls were designed and installed to allow the on-site team to easily review content and quality.
This area is known as the ‘Geek Hub’, combining multiple broadcast sources though one fully programmable app. This is used for testing and real-time fault diagnosis, leading to improved usability and enhanced viewing experience for audience at home.
For the outside terrace areas, we fitted WIFI to facilitate flexible and creative workspaces. On the inside, we built on the flexible and controllable theme by installing Sonos systems to allow the music in the office to reflect the mood and requirements in different zones.
Every element needed to be consistent with the industrial look and feel, so we used LED strip lights to achieve this, combining modern energy saving technology, but keeping the theme.
Bespoke technology has been used throughout in a range of brackets and fixings, cleverly concealing cabling. The backbone to the project was the Comms room, completed as part of Phase 1, from which we were easily able to introduce further innovation.
