December Newsletter 2016 – What We’ve Been Up To
Welcome to our December newsletter! Can you believe it’s almost the end of the year already? It’s going way too fast for our liking (or not, we love Christmas at blackbox!).
It’s been all systems go here with lots of exciting projects being completed, more staff joining us and the launch of an entirely new product range. Let’s take a look at what’s been going on.
The Great Stink – Crossness Pumping Station
Regarded as one of the most incredible examples of modern Victorian engineering, Crossness Pumping Stationwas opened back in July this year, after restoration work done by the Heritage Lottery Fund. We were approached to create an exhibition documenting “The Great Stink” of 1858 and the impact it had across London.
We supplied standard and bespoke AV products to the exhibition, including Multi-Touch Screens, our VideoClip-HD6, a Multi Touch Table Sleek and a bespoke flushing interactive system. The exhibition’s end result was an informative and visually pleasing way to learn about The Great Stink.

Nurses Station Recreation – Mencap Cymru
We were commissioned to manufacture a Brushed Aluminium Panel for use as part of a recreated nurses station. The station helped immerse visitors by providing a greater sense of the wards layout as it would have been when used. Bringing visitors closer to the stories of the former residents.
U-Turn Round – Minute Man National Park
The U-Turn Round we supplied previously was given some TLC with content updated, giving the interpretation a new lease of life and documenting Mary Hartwell’s recollection of the battle. It has helped the park to provide an engaging experience for visitors at a low maintenance cost.

Our Brand New Autoplay Range
Last month saw the release of our new exciting product line, the Autoplay handset range. All you need to do is pick them up off their hanger, and content is triggered automatically. Finished listening? Pop the handset back on the hanger and the content stops. Simple!
AutoPlay Single Cup Armour Cable Headphones
Our Single Cup option incorporates a magnetic hanger that triggers content automatically. They’re reliable, vandal-resistant and feature our standard armour cable and swivel knuckle for increased longevity.
AutoPlay Double Cup Armour Cable Headphones
Our Double Cup is exactly the same as our Single Cup – except with two cups! Robust and easy to install featuring our armour cable and swivel knuckle, these headphones are a must have for your site.
This will be our final newsletter before Christmas and the New Year. Our last working day will be on the 21st December. We will then re-open for business as usual on the 3rd January 2017. From all of us here at Blackbox-av, we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. See you on the other side!
