Epsom Downs Racecourse

Epsom Downs Racecourse is unequivocally an iconic British landmark that has stood the test of time. This world-renowned location holds an incredible historical significance, dating back to the late 1700s when the very first Derby took place. The exciting atmosphere of the horse races attracts visitors from far and wide, and the venue has played host to some of the most famous names in racing history. Today, Epsom Downs continues to draw crowds and offer a stunning backdrop for various events, from weddings to corporate functions, however, this iconic venue needed an audio-visual overhaul to bring it into line with modern-day standards.

The Project Brief.

The site had an existing combination of both audio and video systems, which had been modified over the last 20 years, but now needed rationalising into a single easy-to-use system. Our challenge was to find a single audio-visual system that was both reliable, and easy to use. The new system needed to provide top-quality service and remain ahead of the curve in terms of technological A/V innovation.

Audio functionality.
The old audio distribution system was replaced by a new QSC Q-SYS system which was perfect for an environment such as Epsom Downs where reliability, functionality and quality are paramount. On top of this, six new Martin Audio CDD-12WR speakers were supplied to add sound to areas which were previously troublesome on events such as the Epsom Derby.

Video capability.
LG UE series TVs were added to the site, as well as HD RF feeds for race day content, along with a Wyrestorm 100 Series AVoverIP system to all screens to allow streamed content of either the race day program or conferencing use, with new HDMI and audio inputs in every room.

The End Result.

The new QSC-driven system at Epsom Downs Racecourse offers a powerful yet easy-to-use A/V solution for both conferencing events and race day operations – allowing a dual-purpose solution with efficient control, from one central point. With attention to detail and a focus on quality, the new A/V system delivers an unparalleled experience for Epsom Downs visitors.
