Lower Squire

Live Link

Streaming Events in the presentation theatre can be linked via high-speed fibre connection to and from hospital operating theatres, allowing us to deliver complex events such as live video link from the hospital; providing the ability for additional delegates to participate. The main auditorium can broadcast content to other parts of the building via our comms room, keeping satellite rooms and refreshment areas up-to-date on content.


Presentation Capture System

Live video and audio recordings can be another way to post content online and continue interactions after the event. For capturing those great speeches and presentations we now offer recording & broadcasting through a Black Magic Capture System. This allows two or more 1080p cameras to record directly to a hard drive. Added to our fibre broadband capacity we can also provide live streaming for external viewing of the event.



The Squire Theatre features a four-person panel desk that is perfect for Q&A sessions, aided by comprehensive audio coverage; which include a fixed podium, hand held and lapel microphones.


Projector and Screen

The Lower Squire has a UHD 4K projector which delivers a brighter, sharper detailed image. These are supplied by Full HDMI (and VGA) connectivity through the latest Crestron Max Computer system, allowing multiple laptop connections across the panel desk and podium.
