UK - Illuminate is a progressive new venue at London’s Science Museum, designed to both anticipate and surpass the needs of the events industry. Technical solutions specialist White Light (WL) has been appointed as the venue’s production partner and chose a Yamaha QL1 digital mixing console for the space’s flexible audio system.
Situated on Levels 4 and 5 of the Science Museum, Illuminate couples the latest technology with flexible spaces and stunning views of the City. Thanks to its long-standing relationship with the Science Museum and reputation for managing similar venues across London, WL was trusted with designing and installing the technical infrastructure. The installation was overseen by WL’s project manager Jason Larcombe.
“The Science Museum came to us with their vision for the space and what they wanted to achieve,” he says. “They wanted an intuitive and user-friendly system that would satisfy the demands of any client; covering everything from the biggest conferences to much more intimate events. It was our task to select a range of products to create a bespoke installation for Illuminate to fulfil that vision.”
Jason chose a Yamaha QL1 digital console for portable control of Illuminate’s audio system, which is based on a Dante network. This is similar to the system which WL devised and installed at Central Hall Westminster, where it serves as the venue’s production service partner.
Reece Stead, Yamaha’s commercial audio sales representative for the south-east UK, says, “We are very pleased that WL chose a Yamaha digital mixer for Illuminate. It seems particularly fitting that both companies are represented at the Science Museum’s ground-breaking new events space, showcasing the possibilities of what is possible with the latest audio technology.”
