White Light Gets Connected for New Smith Centre Venue at the Science Museum


the overwhelming success of the Science Museum’s progressive new

multi-function, dedicated events venue Illuminate launching earlier this year,

the Museum has added yet another option to its burgeoning portfolio. The

recently developed Smith Centre has been repurposed to offer four unique spaces

available for exclusive daytime or evening hire. As Illuminate’s in-house

technical production partner, White Light was called upon to install the AV

infrastructure and equipment solutions throughout.







the same state-of-the-art Crestron NVX series control system and

Audinate Dante network built into Illuminate’s Levels 4 & 5, the Smith

Centre is now operational as a fully connected venue. This means that clients

can hire both venues simultaneously for events and broadcast live coverage of

what is happening within each space, across the multiple rooms.






This connectivity enables a range

of uses, from presenter Green Rooms for guest speakers to watch the main event

remotely, to conference breakout sessions where audio and video content can be

sent instantaneously between the venues.






Jonjo Glynn, Venues Director at

White Light comments: “With Illuminate being such an innovative venue, it was

crucial that the Smith Centre installation matched the technical capabilities

of this. The Crestron NVX system allows for infinite flexibility, which is

essential for meeting the bespoke needs of a broad range of clients.”






Jodie Guilford, Business

Development & Marketing Manager at the Science Museum adds: “Many of our

clients are often looking for ways to extend the reach of their event content

and increase their audience. The connection between our two newest venues means

that they can achieve this all under our roof, with the ability to conduct

large main plenary sessions and smaller breakouts simultaneously. This has

significantly enhanced our events offer.”






Illuminate is shortlisted in

three categories for the forthcoming Event Technology Awards.
