Modal Training

Commercial Project

Modal Training delivers innovative training to employees in the maritime, ports, wind energy, offshore, road and logistics sectors. The training provider enlisted Electric String to help equip its fully-integrated, multimodal logistics training centre in North East Lincolnshire with the most advanced audio-visual (AV) systems. The state-of-the art installation ensures Modal Training can offer an advanced interactive learning experience to those undertaking its classroom-based courses.


How Electric String worked with the client:

The design process for the project began nine months prior to installation on site, including extensive testing and demonstrations with the client – ensuring that all systems were integrated in the ways the client expected.
Understanding the client’s vision and ensuring any limitations of the system were removed prior to install was key to the success of this project. This total transparency ensured Modal Training acquired a wealth of knowledge on how the system operates, an important factor for a system that from the front-end behaves reliably but below the surface is a complex integration.

The Electric String system included:

  • Crestron control backbone
    – Crestron Pro3 Control Processor
    – Crestron RMC3 Room Controllers
  • Administrator’s interfaces
  • BenQ 4k Touch Screen displays
  • Kramer Via Connect (BYOD connection)
  • WyreStorm HDBaseT video distribution
  • Crestron Fusion Room Booking System integrated with Microsoft Office365
  • Samsung MagicInfo Digital Signage


Benefits of the system:

The AV at Modal Training is one of the most advanced systems with cutting-edge, collaborative technology that anyone, regardless of technological experience or knowledge, can use. Lecturers can connect to the system via Wi-Fi and invite students to collaborate on a screen, in real time, and interact with what they are being taught either from their own device or via the touch screen displays. Screenshots can also be taken that can be used as lecture notes.

Client Feedback

Sam Whitaker, a Modal Training board member, said: “We were looking for an easy-to-use AV system, primarily wireless, which would allow people to bring their own devices to be connected in a training room. The beauty of the solution from Electric String is that people can use this advanced system with minimal training. It enhances the lesson experience, providing an interactive way of teaching and learning.”
