CF61 Community Space in the Heart of Llantwit Major

Location: Llantwit Major, Vale of Glamorgan

Requirement: Video Conference System for Meeting Room

Drake AV designed and specified an easy to use AV & Poly video conference solution for a community centre in Llantwit Major.


CF61 is a community space, which provides a sustainable, secure and accessible space providing multiple activities ranging from fitness classes and art exhibitions to business meetings.


The CF61 Centre was opened in 2019. The building contains a main hall and two smaller rooms. The rooms have been named after the local water courses – the Colhuw River and its tributaries the Hoddnant and the Ogney.

AV Requirements:

Remote Meetings (Teams, Zoom, Skype for Business)

CF61 hire out their meeting rooms to the local community and business groups. To ensure they can offer the very best facilities to their customers they are in the process of upgrading their meeting rooms, this includes upgrading their AV facilities.


The first room to get the AV treatment is the Hoddnant Room. This room requires top notch AV capabilities so that users can deliver and record fitness classes, conduct remote meetings as-well-as for groups to watch visual entertainment such as movies or display content from their laptop.


All this requires user-friendly accessibility, its no good having all the very best equipment and no one knows how to use it!


Users also require easy access to various video conference platforms such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom. In other words all the user has to do is turn up with a laptop plug into the AV system via a USB cable click onto Zoom and away they go!

Large 75" Visual Display

A large 75″ Sony UHD flat display screen makes it an excellent choice for the room. The screen delivers a large sizable picture so that everyone in the audience will be able to view the content.

  • Large Sony 75” UHD screen for clear true to life images
  • 4 x HDMI inputs
  • 2 x USB inputs


After the installation was completed we provided a training session for some of the main users.  This meant everyone was familiar with the equipment and knowledgeable on the best practice for using the system for a video conference meeting.


The training session is a complimentary part of the package we provide to our customers. All of our customers are provided with training when the installation is complete.

What They Said...

Drake AV were amazing! I knew what we needed but had no idea how to achieve it.

They designed and costed various solutions to suit different budgets, and Helen explained how they would deliver everything we required, and what were the benefits of one solution over another. She enabled me to make an informed decision about which solution to choose, which was modern, simple to use and involved minimal equipment.

The installation was fast, tidy and straightforward, and we were also given training and a manual of how to use our kit.

So far, we have used it to attend and host meetings by video link, and are looking forward to exploring it's potential more widely in the future.
