QU-16 & QUEEN ELIZABETH II Conference Centre

Allen&Heath

The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in central London contains a total of 29 function rooms, running a variety of events ranging from conferences and meetings to banquets and receptions. It deals with exceptionally high profile events on a daily basis and often has several large conferences running simultaneously.

The Centre needed to upgrade the existing analogue mixers in its mobile AV racks, self-contained portable AV systems, which can be
used in any of the event spaces in the venue.

The venue initially looked at analogue options as they could not believe there would be a digital mixer to fit a 19” rack, then they discovered the Qu-16 at an Infocomm show, where it won a Best In Show award.

The QEII Conference Centre has now invested in 7 Qu-16s, each housed in a rolling rack along with media players, speaker processor and amp. The racks are deployed in the conference rooms as needed, feeding the wall mounted speakers via speakon patch points. Lectern, top table, PC sound and radio mics are connected on a temporary basis as required for the particular event.

Key features of the Qu-16 include a colour touchscreen, motorised faders, recallable preamps, multitrack recording to USB and a comprehensive FX suite taken from the iLive pro touring series.
