Westminster Abbey

Whitwam AVI undertook a major upgrade of the sound and vision facilities at Westminster Abbey, one of the UK's most iconic and important Gothic buildings. Audio systems were improved with the installation of touch screen-controlled speech reinforcement and hearing loop systems, while a multi-camera video system including organist's monitor, choir sound relay system, video relay screens was also installed.

Ten remote HD pan-tilt-zoom cameras are located within the Abbey providing live pictures to the four 65″ HD LCD Nave screens with further 65″ screens serving the north and south Transept. The system also provides a webcast stream when required. The video system can be operated by the verging staff via a custom touch screen. The organist has an independent sound and vision system consisting of low latency remote controlled HD cameras located on the Pulpitum, one facing east and one west. The cameras feed into a zero latency HD monitor providing a view of the conductor. A second monitor can select any of the ten remote cameras giving views throughout the Abbey. An audio system with a recording facility is also provided. Both audio and video systems are controlled by the organist via a local touch screen. A touch screen-controlled sound and hearing loop system was also provided for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries with a local radio microphone and link to the Abbey’s sound system.
