the control & observation room

the control & observation room 

the control & observation room is a key element to all training courses at the simulation centre, as this is where exercise controllers and directors are based to run the courses and monitor real time progress from. This is pivotal at the simulation centre, as it enables learning specialists and coaches to observe delegates without being in the same area as the delegates, and ensures immersive bubble is not broken, but that the exercise can progress in line with learning outcomes and objectives. 

the control & observation room contains the following key features:

•    4 Monitoring and control stations, with live stream video and audio recordings, for observing/assessing delegates at both the interactive scene and in the breakout offices. 
•    The video and audio recordings can be downloaded post course for after action review purposes and review. 
•    Operator station for the instructor running the 3D On Scene virtual environment used primarily at the interactive scene, but also the breakout offices, allowing real-time live changes, remote from the delegates. A trained facilitator from the simulation centre will support all courses with the component.
•    Interlinked telephone system - observers and controllers can make and receive calls to each of the offices. It is here where delegates call through to, and observers take on the roles of customers, suppliers, workers etc. Radios can also be used as an alternative.  
•    The control room is also the base for the actors - actors liaise with the observers and learning specialists to feedback on delegates, as well as agree the roles they are taking on, which again can be adapted live during training. 
•    It's absolutely key for keeping delegates immersed. It prevents the need for artificially inserting injects, or having an observer in the corner of the actual room the delegates are in - all of this ensures a more natural, realistic response and behaviour form the delegate, ensuring greater quality training and development.
