After providing Void Acoustics sound systems for a year long run of Not So Secret Warehouse Parties in the Salford district of Greater Manchester, promoter and bar manager Sam Janes contacted Neuron to spec a full AV installation for his newest venture, located in the fast-growing redevelopment area of Ancoats.
Drawing on the classic American sports bar style, with a Mancunian twist, the venue features large format displays at either end of the bar, showing current sports news, events and fixtures. An additional pair of screens mounted behind the bar allow the bar to show four separate sources from the Sky, BT and Freesat feeds at once via a Kramer HDMI switching unit, which is vital to keep up with the latest scores. When no source is selected, each bar display falls back to a custom HTML-based advertising system, displaying current food and drinks offers available.
In addition, the monster 84" 4K TV often plays host to hotly contested PlayStation tournaments of perennial classics such as FIFA, which prizes of both cash and drinks available.
Easy control of the sound source throughout the Void Acoustics Cyclone 55 full-range speakers mounted from the ceilings can be selected to match any one of the displays' input is available via phone, tablet or computer, or directly on the front of the rack panel itself, and volume control can be adjusted for each area of the bar so that videogame players can focus on winning!
An additional pair of Void Acoustics Cirrus 5 ceiling speakers fill out the bathroom areas, ensuring that visitors can keep on top of events despite the call of nature.
Following several successful pop-up DJ events on weekends, Neuron also gladly provided an industry standard Pioneer NXS2 DJ system with active Yamaha monitor to allow for private events and weekend parties to be hosted well into the small hours.
