Located on the banks of Manchester's historic Ship Canal, MediaCityUK is a new waterfront destination with digital creativity, learning and leisure at its heart. Its vision is to become a leading international hub for the creative and digital sectors.
It comprises an eclectic mix of more than 200 businesses including the BBC, ITV, Coronation Street, SIS, The University of Salford and Bupa. Major educational and training providers are already in MediaCityUK, complemented by a mix of restaurants and bars, and retail therapy in the Lowry Outlet. The scheme also features a wide range of commercial office space, one of the biggest HD studio developments in Europe - dock 10, a Holiday Inn hotel and great transport links via tram or nearby motorway network.
Peel Media Limited, owners of MediaCityUK - Manchester’s creative and technological hub located on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, wanted to equip its meeting room with the latest technology to showcase its properties to prospective tenants.
It needed to give its property managers and Managing Director the freedom to roam the room wirelessly while presenting high definition images, videos, maps of the area and Powerpoint presentations. It was important, they could point out details on plans and present close to the screen without casting shadows.
