Champs Sports Bar & Grill is Loughborough’s premier sports bar for families, friends, fans and food lovers. Formerly known as The Unicorn, the pub has recently undergone a transformation and remains right at the heart of Loughborough town centre. Champs offers a unique blend of American dining with sports on many HDTV screens around the venue.

The project required multiple displays throughout the new sports bar. To help achieve this, TVC supplied an impressive large screen video wall in the main bar area, consisting of 9 Ultra-Thin Bezel 55″ TV screens, it seamlessly displays Full HD videos and images. To provide easy access, Peerless SmartMount Full-Service Video Wall Mounts with Quick Release were used, specifically designed for quick service access, they provide an ideal video wall solution.

To compliment the main bar area an additional selection of Mitchell & Brown 43” & 65” Ultra HD 4K LED TV’s were installed; seamlessly mounted in high visibility areas using Peerless SmartMount Universal Flat Wall Brackets. Towards the rear of the pub, a long-lasting, low maintenance, Optoma ZH Laser Projector was used to provide another big screen viewing experience.

A designated gaming area comprising of 3x 49” Mitchell & Brown LED TV’s, connected to Xbox and PlayStation consoles, speakers, and Gobo FX Projector; to project static and rotating images simultaneously or individually, creating the perfect setup for any gamer.

It’s just as impressive outside, with a 65” Mitchell & Brown Ultra HD 4K LED TV wall mounted in a protective weather and water-resistant TV Shield.  The shield provides a perfect solution to affordably entertain customers in the beer garden come rain or shine.

To compliment the many visuals, we supplied and installed over 20 speakers through the premises. RCF ceiling and surface mount speakers are ideal for the reproduction of announcements and background music.

Finally, a wall mounted Apple iPad and BSS Remote Audio Controls are fitted, providing an easy-to-use touch screen volume and source control through a Network HD managed system.
