Project details

The new MVIC, which is located in the Piccadilly Plaza complex on the corner of Portland Street and Parker Street, represents an investment of over £800,000 by Manchester City Council and the Northwest Regional Development Agency.

The plan was to make this building in Manchester light up like “Times Square”. We decided in the end we would supply and install 12 X Samsung 460 UXN2 screens making a video wall 4 x 3. And a separate run of 12 x 400 CXN2 screens. The MVIC have also had 3 x Microsoft touch tables supplied and installed which run a specific application to allow visitors to use interactive technology to find exactly what they are looking for.

The original requirements were to have parabolic speakers, but as the project took shape we changed this to a zonal speaker solution combining 12 x JBL Speakers with 3 x Crown CDI 1000 amplifiers and a Zone controller module.
