The Virtual Revolution: Hutchison Technologies help operators motivate members

Many operators have utilised previously unused floor space to maximise the class timetable
– Ross Patterson

Hutchison Technologies virtual solutions are helping operators expand their virtual offering and get motivated members back into the club.

Having been at the forefront of the virtual revolution from the start, Hutchison Technologies are the undisputed heavyweight integrator of virtual fitness solutions.

We know Virtual! It’s all about combining a great sound system, the perfect visual solution, phenomenal lights and content from the likes of Les Mills, MyRide, Fitbox Virtual and Myzone to create a motivating and memorable workout experience. Hutchison Technologies have the technical know-how, operational means and passion to make the best virtual experience possible.

AV to the max! - Virtual integration ensures clubs get the most out of their AV, even at off-peak times. Run spectacular pre-programmed and automated audio visual & lighting sequences to the best virtual content to keep members coming back for more!

More classes! – Virtual means clubs can run more classes each week, which not only compliments the live classes but also helps to take the pressure off, meaning members never miss out on their favourite group exercise classes.

Flexible studios! - From large screen displays and projection, to video walls and wrap-around immersive projection, we can offer solutions for all budgets and can integrate virtual solutions into just about any space.

Endless options! - With a host of virtual content providers to choose from including Les Mills, MyRide, Fitbox Virtual and more, clubs have a range of providers and classes to choose from - ensuring members are always engaged.

Ross Patterson, Technical Sales Consultant said “we’ve been approached by many operators who have utilised previously unused floor space to maximise the class timetable. This has helped them to retain member engagement whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines.

We are now actively supporting the digital livestream boom, helping operators to record, stream and upload their content to a hosting platform which they can make available as a virtual class and deliver through their existing AV set up.”
