Audio-visual systems for council chambers

With more and more pressure to go paperless, now is definitely the best time to make the transition. At Design AV Europe in Cheltenham, we take care of councils across England, helping to refit their chambers with a range of AV and multi-room applications. We know that you’re likely to be located in a historic building. Our wireless solutions are ideal as there is virtually no impact on the integrity of your premises, making them perfect for period properties. To discuss the audio-visual design of your chambers, get in touch today.

No interference council chamber AV -because communication is key

Covid has completely changed the way we have meetings, so that local authorities have had to catch up. At Design AV Europe, we can help get your council chambers up to speed to keep you connected.

No one wants to waste time setting up systems each time. Our wireless AV solutions offer easy integration and user-friendly features such as dual discussion, mute and microphone control so that you can start your meetings straight away. Encryption comes as standard, allowing you to get down to AOB, ASAP.


Over the years, we’ve worked with all aspects of delicate discussion systems (DDS), congress systems, and ancillaries including the following:

  • Standard and customised council chamber furnishing including ‘in-desk’ and ‘on-desk’ options

  • Simultaneous translation

  • RFID readers to record attendance

  • Card readers for access control

  • Voting systems

  • DDS software suites

  • Screens (for council chambers and public areas)

A pragmatic approach to local authority environments

Crystal clear audio, speaker amplification, software set up - the councils we work with value our pragmatic approach to the constraints of local authority environments. In one case, where budget was particularly tight, we even overhauled and refurbished an existing system. Our client was delighted.

Like you, we understand the importance of good specification decisions. That way, you can maximise equipment service life without having to worry about system upgrades in a few years.


As we have more than 30 years’ experience with such installations, and excellent relationships with specialist equipment manufacturers, you can be confident that your council chamber AV installation will continue to perform reliably into the future.

Seamlessly integrating multiple systems with your AV installation

We’ll also skilfully integrate specialist DDS equipment with traditional audio-visual hardware including projectors, screens and laptop inputs. And, of course, the wireless networking required in older local authority premises.

Whether you’re running physical, remote or hybrid meetings, our wireless conference systems can make your conference calls smoother, more enjoyable and more productive. We know that privacy is paramount, especially when you’re hosting meetings online. With built in security features, we’ll ensure your connection stays secure and can even include RFID readers to register attendance at your online event.


If data management, security and other technology must be integrated, we'll take care of that too. We’re much more than just ‘another AV solutions provider’. Take a look at our tailored support packages.
