Studio MB

JCB, Europe's largest manufacturer of construction equipment, is proud to be a privately owned UK-based company.  To showcase their extensive range of products and services to a global network of customers & distributors, JCB appointed Studio MB to design and build a large scale walk-through brand centre on their site at Rocester, near Uttoxeter.

To complement the machinery, historical artefacts, and JCB ephemera, multiple AV elements were designed to be fully integrated with the exhibits and displays.  From simple but effective background audio tracks, through automatically triggered screen-based video modules, a large scale video-wall, to numerous digital projection systems and an edge-blended video projection presentation, the hardware operates as one system connected over a closed network.

Touchscreens located at the entrance & exit of the exhibition enable guides to select automatic or manual modes of operation, to adjust audio levels, and to start & stop the media as required.

As part of Studio MB’s team from the outset, I worked alongside their creative team to develop and refine presentation ideas.  I provided detailed technical information to JCB’s construction team to ensure power outlets, cable routes, fixing points, ventilation and similar necessities were in place when the exhibition site work commenced.

I completed the design & specification of the hardware system and calculated guide costs before quotations from audio visual integrators were invited.  During the installation process, I regularly attended site to assess progress and to provide background expert knowledge to the AVI’s team.

Commissioning is the most important stage of any AV installation, and I spent considerable time on site working with the 3D design team, the lighting designer, the AVI, and our client to obtain the best possible results.
