Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland

Studio MB

Responsibility for the refurbishment of The Vindolanda Trust’s fascinating and highly successful Roman museums on Hadrian’s Wall was awarded to Studio MB of Edinburgh.  Their treatment for the two centres, which are complementary but 7 miles apart, contained technically challenging video displays using Peppers Ghost techniques, large scale projection, presence triggered audio, synchronised lighting, and hearing assistance systems.

I was appointed by Studio MB to work within their design team, developing concepts into technical solutions, and producing a specification document for AV integrators to quote against.

In addition, I provided content producers with details of the replay systems to ensure presentation material was configured precisely for each hardware package.

On this project, equipment had to be capable of withstanding direct power shutdown as existing electrical circuits could not be consolidated, and networking was not possible.  Video projectors, in particular, had to be carefully selected.
