Because of the variety of situations, they must be used in, and auditoriums can be one of the most difficult types of rooms environments to design and integrate. An auditorium can seat anywhere from 25 to 1,000 people. It is important that everyone in the audience can see and hear what the “event” is.
Event managers and choreographers must have the ability to control all aspects of events at this scale, as they are often very public. This could include sound, lighting and drapes, visual displays, cameras, etc.
To help you achieve the best design for your auditorium, the Actis team offers these tips:
Auditorium design and engineering are some of the most critical aspects. It has the greatest impact on the experience of the audience. The auditorium should be treated from the ceiling and sides. The sound system design must also consider the noise level and acoustics of the room. This is a common mistake in auditoriums despite their considerable investment and attention. For stage performances that require multiple microphones, a Floor Box must be available.
The visibility of the stage and screen must be excellent. We need to provide a clear line of sight by installing sloped floors and staggered seats. Also, ensure that the screen height (diagonal) is at least 1/6 the distance between the screen’s last row and the screen. If the screen is smaller, people behind it will have difficulty seeing the content. Along with the type of screen, it is important to have a high-resolution (4Kor FullHD) projector and high brightness (above 5,000 luminance).
A centralized control using touch-based controllers allows for simple control in high-pressure environments such as high-profile live events. These control systems can integrate with virtually any electronic or electrical system, including HVAC, sound systems and lighting.
Vibration isolation and noise control are very important in an auditorium environment. HVAC noise, mechanical noise from other systems, and noise from outside systems can significantly impact room acoustics and structural vibration as well as exterior noise levels. A systematic noise measurement study must be done to determine the best ways to reduce these noise sources’ impact.
Stage lighting can be used to ensure visibility and create the right atmosphere. It improves the visual appeal of the space and is crucial for live performances such as musicals or plays. Your lighting system can be created by combining floodlights, spotlights and wash lights with scanners, moving heads and lasers. You can program it remotely using a digital DMX mixer.
