Opening in early 2021, Pan Pacific London hotel is touted as what will be the city’s new landmark tower just across from Liverpool Street Station. A highlight of the property will be the 5,000-square-foot Pacific Ballroom, the hotel’s largest and most flexible event space—and one of the largest hotel ballrooms in the Square Mile.
The hotel calls the ballroom the "most technologically advanced ballroom" in London. To note, the Pacific Ballroom’s SMART 4K LED video walls will transform the visual event experience, allowing organization of "truly hybrid event." Each of the three LED video walls—the largest measuring 25 feet-by-14 feet—provide an ultra-high definition visual supported by the highest-performing uniform brightness, the ultimate in color accuracy, and superior clarity. Pan Pacific London says these will support the delivery of "impactful, vivid, highly legible content, which seamlessly adapts to all types of lighting conditions."
Good to know: The Pacific Ballroom can sub-divide into two separate soundproof rooms, so each of the video walls can be designed to replicate material, or work independently through separate sources.
The technology systems are connected in the A/V control room, where an event producer can control the screen sources, ceiling-mounted speakers and intelligent lighting systems, all with the aid of an integrated visual and audio communications system that links directly to the ballroom and floor manager.
The Pacific Ballroom’s green room provides a live feed to the Ballroom, ensuring speakers have visibility of their audience while preparing for their entrance. Once on stage, they have the ability to control their own content movements, lighting, sound and prompts from the lectern, with the addition of portable comfort monitors ensuring they are fully supported.
In addition to video conferencing, the ballroom has integrated connectivity to live broadcasting systems and the ability to facilitate three interpretation booths in four languages. Super-fast Wi-Fi and 5G receivers complete the integrated Pacific Ballroom technology, which can be enhanced with supplementary AV equipment with the use of ceiling suspension and power points.
