AV Department Ltd where very pleased to have been recognised for their efforts in installing the Scottish Parliaments new voting and microphone system in the main chamber together with an upgraded PA .
The following comments are copied from the Official Report for the 8th of September. (The systems first day of use)
“Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP): I want to take a few seconds to congratulate the communications and media team on the new sound system in the chamber. I certainly feel the benefit of its improved quality, and I think that we should acknowledge the work that the communications and media team has done over the recess. “
“The Presiding Officer: I thank Dennis Robertson for his remarks about the sound system. I will ensure that those who were responsible for its installation know what he said about it. “
We feel that this is high praise indeed as Dennis is registered blind and has a heightened sense of hearing. Dennis also has use of a console with Braille modified buttons to enable his full participation in a system which is driven mainly by touch screens.
More on this installation will be published soon.
