AV equipment supplier and integrator TVC Technology Solutions, was respon- sible for The Flower Bowl installation, creating a fully integrated audio and visual experience for visitors to this latest must-see

attraction. Located

adjacent to the existing Barton Grange Garden Centre at Brock, Preston, it is the brainchild of the award-winning Barton Grange Group of companies.

“For video wall mounts that are easy to install with reliable performance and quality finish every time, we go to Peerless-AV,” said Andy Greaves, Head of Commercial Sales at TVC Technol- ogy Solutions. “For this project, the displays needed to blend in with the landscape and architecture, and the mounts play a huge role in this, making the displays sit flush to the walls with no gaps or irregularities so all visitors see and engage with is the content.” Specifically designed with a gentle

ton Grange Group in October 2016 to help create this most impressive and unusual leisure venue, which sees AV technology integrating seamlessly with its surrounding natural environment. Completed at the end of 2018, The Flower Bowl is now officially open to the public.

TVC specified and installed a total of

19 x 32" and 55" Samsung Hospitality and Commercial LFD screens in high visibility areas of the venue for way- finding and information sharing with visitors. A further 17 x 46" Samsung screens are used to create striking video walls.

In the main foyer, located outside the entrance to the cinema, is the larg- er 3x3 video wall, used to display the latest movie trailers. Two smaller 2x2 video walls are positioned at the en- trance to the shop, showcasing the Se- cret Garden Crazy Golf, and the Private Bar and Karaoke area. To provide easy access to all screens and to deliver the most professional screen placement for the individual displays and video walls, TVC chose Peerless-AV DS-VW765-LQR SmartMount Full-Service Mounts with Quick Release.

displays up to 65". These award-win- ning mounts are packed with install- er-friendly features that allow for a single person install, including an easy hang keyhole wall plate for fast mount positioning. The tool-less micro adjustment at 8 points ensures preci- sion display alignment, while the cus- tom wall plate spacers provide perfect placement of each additional mount on the wall, eliminating installation cal- culations and guesswork. Compact, lightweight Canon short throw projectors are installed within the curling arena to project eye-catch- ing winter scenes through a virtual window to the outside world. Finally, a series of BOSE ceiling and wall mount- ed speakers help create the perfect acoustic atmosphere throughout the venue. Carl Irvine - IT and Infrastruc- ture of Barton Grange Group comment- ed, “The AV was an integral part of this venture when we first started discus- sions and seeing the end result make us very proud of our new creation. Most importantly, customers love their new contemporary leisure hub that shows passion and care for nature and the surrounding landscape.”
