MW Video Systems have recently completed the design and supply of two custom made consoles for the globally recognised construction and agricultural machinery manufacturer, JCB. As part of a major upgrade to the AV and media equipment at the 250-seat theatre within the visitors centre at their headquarters in Rocester, MW Video were tasked by main contractors Feltech to provide the technical furniture. The two consoles have been fitted to the new production control rooms and transmission control rooms, which are now responsible for the input and output of all events, reveals, outside broadcasts and films in different languages.
The project required tight deadlines, in time for the hosting of JCB’s largest event to date, the Global Dealer conference. MW Video Systems worked closely with main contractor Feltech to design and supply the furniture, which also included Novus monitor mounting arms and laptop holders, to meet the project deadline. Feltech’s Sales Director, Nevil Bounds commented “we took an approach that “the show must go on” and under the leadership of Feltech Project manager Neil Whybrow, we met the deadline” .
The success of the project has resulted in well-deserved recognition for Feltech. In June 2013, Feltech won the Business Installation of the Year Award at the AV Awards for their role in this project, and in January 2014 it has been announced that Feltech are shortlisted as finalists in the Inavate 2014 awards in the category “corporate facilities”.
