Dinopark

The Dinopark visitor attraction near Dumfries was an unexpected project but a fun one none the less.

Velociraptor

A Velociraptor seems to be on the loose!

We were asked to look at an audio solution for the park area. We needed to integrate audio in a number of areas including music tracks at a kiosk area, background sound effects and effects for the dinosaur staues around the park.

We laid over 3km of cabling in what is a relatively small park area. Using a ProTraXX digital control system along with 100v zoned amplifier we were able to create a system which allowed us to playback in some areas when triggered by motion sensors and playback in a constant loop in other areas such as background sounds.

The solution was refined over a number of months after a lot of testing and planning.

A visit to www.dinopark.co.uk is well worth while for young kids.

Three Glens Installation

One of our recently completed projects is the 3Glens farmhouse at Moniaive, near Dumfries.

Our remit was to provide an audio visual solution for now and also cater for any future requirements. We used a range of Systemline and Sonos products to provide the audio in 5 bedrooms as well as a kitchen area, office, TV room and social area which included an outside balcony.

Although not set up just now, HD picture distribution is possible throughout the property via the Cat6 cabling infrastructure. The current AV equipment is located in a central location easily accessible for any upgrade or maintenance that may be required in the future.  With the addition of an HD Matrix, distribution will be a simple step should it be requested.

The Three Glens property is not only energy efficient, it is carbon negative.  The technology and the electrical products we installed were chosen specifically because of their energy efficient credentials and included televisions, washing machine and heat pump tumble dryer.
