Following the enormous success of the first F1 Arcade in London earlier this year, a Bolton-based AV integration specialist has brought its AV and smart display technologies to Birmingham, for the second Formula 1 Arcade.

TVC Technology Solutions based in Bolton is already responsible for the displays around the Toughsheet Community Stadium, for the Bolton Wanderers.

Located opposite Albert’s Schloss in Paradise, near Chamberlain Square, the exhilarating F1 racing experience in Birmingham delivers the full spectrum of excitement, glamour, and thrills synonymous with Formula 1.

Key to the F1 Arcade project is creating a fully immersive sensory AV experience that recreates all the noise, splendour, and excitement of F1 racing.

The zoning of the audio was critical, from the immersive experience of the gaming areas to the party atmosphere of the DJ booth and buzzing ambience of the bar.

To support the 53 motion F1 simulators, Bolton’s TVC was tasked with enhancing the social and competitive element of F1 Arcade with multiple large-screen TVs, a multi-zone audio system and an attention-grabbing LED video wall display.

Using the latest in AV technology, TVC provided an LED video wall, multiple large screens, digital signage, lighting effects, professional audio, and a DJ booth.

TVC implemented sound systems, stunning visual from Samsung and LG.

Lucia Maguire, Managing Director at TVD Group, said: “The F1 Arcade in Birmingham was another incredible high-profile integration project to work on and we feel honoured to be an integral part of bringing the second phase of this prestigious concept to life having completed the London F1 Arcade earlier this year.

“The result is a truly breath-taking leisure venue with AV that delivers all the buzz and excitement of F1 racing in a social gaming environment.” Devised by Adam Breeden, the man behind popular entertainment venues including Flight Club, Puttshack, and Bounce, the F1 Arcade concept is an immersive state-of-the-art racing simulation and social gaming venue in full association with the Formula 1 motorsport brand.

This is the second F1 Arcade in the UK and joins a growing list of high-profile AV projects for TVC Technology Solutions.
