University of Dundee, Institute of Sport and Exercise

Health & Fitness

ISE looked to enhance their cycle studio to benefit their whole community.

  • Pro audio from Evoson
  • FitboxVirtual content player
  • Phillips video wall and screens
  • HT equipment housing     
  • Shure instructor mic
  • Tablet automated control (Android)

The vision

The Institute of Sport and Exercise (ISE) at the University of Dundee had a vision to enhance their member experience through a new state-of-the-art indoor cycling facility.

They hoped that by improving the member experience, they could improve membership across students on campus, alumni and the wider community. This included members participating in their Active Living exercise programmes, which aim to give a choice of fun and sociable opportunities to anyone over the age of 60.

The project

ISE wanted to create a competitive member experience, integrating smart bikes from Wattbike into their latest studio upgrade. The team were looking to introduce a professional audio visual solution as part of the upgrade to take their spin classes to a new, immersive level.

The solution

We provided a complete audio visual solution to help the ISE realise their vision.

An impressive 2155mm wide by 1215mm tall video wall was installed in the studio, complemented by two 49” Phillips screens. This ensured uninterrupted visibility around the studio, creating a more immersive experience.

The video wall was programmed, using FitboxVirtual, to display virtual content from Sufferfest. The additional screens were integrated with the Wattbike app, enabling participants’ performance data to be displayed, enhancing the competitive element of the studio.

For the audio solution, we combined legacy audio equipment with new Evoson speakers to deliver great sound while keeping to a reasonable budget to help maintain accessible fees.

To support ease of transition between classes and instructors, the whole solution is touch controlled from a personalised tablet installation.

The result

This was the first Wattbike competitive virtual class available in Scotland and was achieved by Hutchison Technologies integration of the available technologies. We provided a new solution to the Scottish market, utilising and showcasing performance data from the Wattbike App through our integrated audio visual solutions.

“Our aim was to develop a state-of-the-art indoor cycling facility. Our partnership with Wattbike, SUF Cycling and Hutchison Technologies allowed us to recognise that goal, with the winners being all our customers here at the Institute of Sport & Exercise, (ISE), University of Dundee,”
