Puttshack, the ‘world’s first’ social entertainment concept, brought together industry-leading audio equipment and visual technology, to transform the traditional game of mini-golf, creating the ultimate entertainment experience in the heart of Essex.
Located in the renowned Intu Lakeside Shopping Centre, Puttshack wanted to create a unique leisure experience by installing high-quality digital signage and audio equipment to go alongside their iconic island bar and restaurant.
To create this unique experience, Puttshack approached TVC for their industry-leading advice and technology solutions. After an initial meeting, it was clear they wanted to create something special. The challenge was to strategically install high-quality audio equipment around each hole to improve customer engagement, without losing any quality in the audio due to the poor acoustics around the venue.
Our audio experts at TVC installed a variety of auido equipment technology, including a total of 86 speakers, a number of loudspeakers from JBL’s Application Engineered Series and a high-powered Control Contractor by Crown XTI. We understood the importance of creating a memorable experience for Puttshack customers, so we specifically installed 36 JBL Professional Soundbars around each hole to provide exhilarating sound effects. For ultimate control, we added the BSS Soundweb, providing plenty of processing power to manage the audio system from a central control system.
TVC Project Manager, Paul Atherton, commented: “This was a challenging design and required some extra care around the positioning of the loudspeaker due to the poor acoustics and reverb time in the venue. The quality of the components in the JBL cabs provided me with a good starting point, and the final result was a clear, intelligible, powerful system.”
