British Parliamentary history has been brought to life using the latest audio-visual technology in London’s new Parliamentary Education Centre.
Electrosonic was responsible for the AV design and systems integration for the ‘Discovery Space’, located near the Palace of Westminster.
The centre, designed to connect young people with parliament and democracy, utilises 360-degree projection technology to envelop students in a fast-paced experience that blends engaging content with spectacular visuals.
Four Optoma projectors were ceiling mounted to facilitate the continuous video display around the walls, giving students a real feeling of actually being part of political history.
Electrosonic worked alongside Centrescreen for the visual content, which included a memorable and visually vibrant 15-minute production where historical events connected to each chamber are depicted.
“The students are always transfixed during the Story of Parliament film and feel like they are genuinely in either the House of Commons or the House of Lords during the virtual Chamber experiences.” said Phil Johnson, centre manager for the Houses of Parliament.
As a result of the new education facility, the Houses of Parliament Education Service is expecting student visits to more than double in 2016 from 45,000 to 100,000.
