Sandbox VR

Crossover designs and delivers the AV package for this bustling virtual reality experience location in central London.

Spanning three floors of a former Royal Mail Sorting Centre in London’s Covent Garden, Sandbox VR offers an immersive VR experience which is ably supported by an AV concept, designed and installed by London-based AV integrator, Crossover.

The concept of Sandbox VR is inspired by the holodecks featured in Star Trek, with groups of up to six entering virtual worlds for a fun, competitive and social experience – with the social element enhanced afterwards when participants get together to review and relive their performances and enjoy refreshments.

With two holodecks in the basement and two on the ground floor, the Crossover team supplemented these areas with sound and video solutions to match the high levels of technology offered in the VR games.

“There are various zones across the different levels in the venue that all required various AV solutions, with the main socialising area focussed around a large bar on the ground floor,” explained Ben Manning, Project Manager for Crossover.
