IVC Designs State-Of-The-Art Communication Centre For Darwin Centre

Leading system integrator IVC Media, has announced the completion of the state-of-the-art communication centre for the Attenborough Studio in the Natural History Museum's New Darwin Centre, opening to the public on September 15, 2009.
According to the Natural History Museum: "The opening of the Darwin Centre represents the future for the Natural History Museum as a world leader in researching the burning issues facing humans and the natural world. The Darwin Centre unleashes the Natural History Museum's life as a major science infrastructure into the public arena, offering a voice of authority on the natural world and inspiring better care of our planet."
As part of the £28 million project, IVC was contracted to design and implement the technology to create a 64-seat, state-of-the-art communication centre for the general public. Known as the Attenborough Studio, the project leads the way in educational presentational technology and includes: five full sized digital screens and 5.1 surround sound.
Patrick Stewart-Blacker, Business Development Manager at IVC Media, said: "Along with key manufacturers and consultants including: Cultural Innovations, Panasonic, Medialon, Bose, Adder, Dell, Haivision and Paradigm, we have worked together to develop a unique facility which is essentially a broadcast studio and presentation suite in one.
"The provision to integrate live audio and an outside broadcast feed or fly away standard definition video conference system, will enable scientists working within the Darwin Centre research labs to present their work to the general public for the first time, which is a particularly exciting proposition.
"The Darwin Centre will allow the public to share the excitement of discovery in new and innovative ways. We have been delighted to work on this innovative project which sets the standards for the future practice of public education and engagement with science."
