University of Liverpool Interpreter Training Suite – 2024

Brahler Ddol Interpreter Console

The University outlined a suitable space for the new suite in 2023. The historic building on Mount Pleasant had a basement area that met the requirements, but it was in need of some modernisation.

The Architects redesigned the space with the Audio-Visual requirements at the forefront of their plans.
5 interpreter booths, a 12-person conference table, and a dedicated AV comms room were all included in the design.

What the Customer Thought

“The new facility was installed in a very professional manner by BUK, with in-depth testing and full training and provided for tutors and technical staff . We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend BUK to other universities”
Michael Bayliss – School Senior IT and AV Technician
“We worked closely with BUK on all stages of the project, their industry knowledge really helped us to define the requirements and design a stunning new facility”
JR Peterson – IT and Imaging Technician

    Unparalleled control

    Expert camera units, seamlessly linked to your AV system

    In any environment, whether it be at a conference, board room or court room, it is essential that those in the space can see the person who is speaking. In these scenarios, the most practical method of tracking the speaker is to direct the camera to the microphone location using camera control software.
