Commercial Case Study

Product Installed: NetworkHD 400 Series

ABOUT THE INSTALL
F1 Arcade is a thrilling new racing experience designed to make EVERYONE feel like a champion. A world first premium Formula 1® experiential venue, it perfectly recreates the excitement and emotion of the sport from the circuit to the city. With 60 full-motion racing simulators and incredible food and cocktail menus, F1 Arcade caters for an electric atmosphere creating the perfect social gaming experience for both F1 fans and newcomers to the sport.

THE CHALLENGE
As this was a complete refurbishment of the venue, strict timelines had to be met and work had to be completed around other trades and contractors. The accoustics posed a further challenge. The speakers placed around the venue had to be positioned to accommodate for acoustic and audio leakage to the surrounding buildings and offices above.

Christopher Whitlock, Technical Director at TVC states; “It was a real team effort, and of course, there were times when we needed to be flexible with the other elements of the ongoing project, but we had a great relationship with our client, which really helps.”

THE SOLUTION
To get all the video content to the plethora of screens around the F1 Arcade, TVC called upon the award-winning NetworkHD™ 400 Series, which offers stunning 4K HDR video, multi-channel audio support and 4K/2K auto-scaling to seamlessly handle distribution of mixed resolution sources, content and display devices over a 1GbE network.
