INTERCONNECTED OFFICES AROUND THE GLOBE
A technology company (who wishes to remain unnamed) with high demand for innovative Crestron programming chose AVPA for a large scale commercial AV system design project. The company, with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, as well as London, Tokyo and other major cities, needed a Crestron programmer to meet high standards of design, performance and operability. Together with San Diego design and integration firm Fluid Sound, with whom we partnered on the project, that is exactly what we delivered.Our Crestron programming team, along with the design and integration professionals from Fluid Sound, completed the initial project at the company’s LA headquarters.
Over the course of the project, we provided all of the Crestron programming and design support, as well as onsite testing and system commissioning. To give the client the kind of system that would best meet their needs, including the need for seamless collaboration through conferencing, we worked with and programmed for a variety of hardware components. These included projectors, DSP, a Vidyo VTC system, and a Barix RAVA SIP to answer and start VOIP calls through the Crestron TSW-1050 touch panel.
All Hands Conference Room Takes Collaboration to New Heights
Building a conference room that matched the level of innovative technology with which the company works, that would fit into the company’s corporate culture and promote collaboration within and across the company’s offices, was a key component of the project. With this in mind, we got to work replacing the existing system with a high end system that was better equipped to meet client needs to create the All Hands Area in the LA office.
Located in the central area of the offices, where the company congregates for “all hands” meetings, the All Hands Area supports audio/video conferencing among the worldwide offices. With seamless integration and ease of use a top priority, our Crestron programmers programmed the Vidyo VTC system to work seamlessly with VOIP calls that are received and started via Barix RAVA SIP through the Crestron TSW-1050 touch panel.
To create the “all hands experience,” the aesthetic design and presentation of the system included the use of two LED projectors in the central All Hands Area. To improve the overall experience and promote comfortable collaboration, we reinforced sound through additional speakers as needed.
The resulting experience demonstrates how systems programming can have a real impact on comfort and productivity, enhancing experiences and encouraging the kind of collaboration our client values.
Easy Replication Saves Client Time and Money, While Providing Streamlined Experience
We completed this project at the company’s LA headquarters, and designed it to be replicated smoothly at the company’s other offices. Next on the list, the New York office got its upgrade.
Because we completed the initial programming using a modular approach, it was set up for easy replication, with the goal that the systems work should work the same throughout the company’s global offices. The New York phase of the project proved that this approach works well.
The project was duplicated in the New York office after the full system was developed and tested in San Diego. We were able to use only one local installer in New York, along with one person to travel onsite and manage the installation.
In addition to delivering results that satisfied the client in the first phase of the project, we were able to create a system and a process that were efficient and scalable, paving the way for seamless installations in all of the company’s offices.
