Case Study – IPTV at Britannia Leisure Centre
Content distribution over IP networks for the London borough of
Hackney’s new flagship leisure centre in Hoxton
This construction project saw the local leisure centre rebuilt as part of a bigger development including a new school and social housing. A network-based distribution system was specified for getting television, radio and video content to their screens and exercise equipment.
Construction had already begun when the operator GLL were asked to procure the system and a tender process was undertaken for this key element of the centre’s operation.
As a result of the global pandemic, supply chains were seriously affected, and careful planning was needed to integrate the IPTV system into the live construction program.
Accredited by the CAI, the UK’s representative body for aerial and audio visual installations, Trusol’s specialist health and fitness teams used their experience in all type of internal signal distribution to arrive at the best solution.
Our assessment of the project plans identified the important key elements missing from the build, and helped the operator navigate to a solution acceptable to the main contractors and their electrical installers.
An industry-leading IPTV system was selected from Vitec, global specialists in commercial AV distribution. Our package allowed for connectivity to a range of devices including the built-in entertainment systems on the exercise equipment itself.
The site has four public levels and so required additional IT infrastructure beyond that initially provisioned by the construction lead architects to ensure IPTV connectivity throughout. Our networking specialists designed a solution for IPTV connectivity and for other specialist leisure systems such as the virtual fitness studio.
Members now enjoy a full range of entertainment channels, all accessible across the site wide array of TV screens and gym equipment displays.
The IPTV system delivers TV and radio across the site with capability for other content such as digital signage
The Vitec IPTV system offers reliability, stability and peace of mind for the entire GLL team at Brittania Leisure Centre
The installations were completed on time and within budget during a very challenging year for all businesses
“Members want us to help them stay motivated and engaged and to do that effectively our team needs quality equipment they can depend on. Trusol’s audio visual systems look and sound really good and everything is made to last. I have worked on several bespoke projects with them and have always been provided with innovative solutions and good advice.”
“Our spin classes have gone up a gear with the great new audio system from Trusol. The sound is awesome and it’s definitely been an asset to this gym and a factor in member retention and recruitment. Our instructors love it too – simple to operate, no distortion and lots of bass!”
“We chose the LEDsnaps lighting system through Trusol as part of a refresh of our studio and functional training areas. The upgraded audio system is much better and the LED strip lights move and change colour and are a real boost to help our members stay engaged and active.“
“Trusol’s service and support has been invaluable to us and the AV systems installed across our gym, fitness studios and pool still work just as well as they did when the centre opened five years ago.”
“Trusol provided a range of services across our new facility including video surveillance, cellular signal boosting and the audio visual systems for our fitness studios and education suite. They are professional and dedicated to their work, and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to others.”
