The client’s offices in St Stephen’s Green are located in a “traditional meets modern” building and offer superb working spaces. The challenge was to incorporate a number of end-high technology devices in a seamless and aesthetically pleasing manner.
The 26 person boardroom is situated at the front of the Georgian building. The room is used for quarterly global board meetings. The table houses 5 omni directional microphones which are used to Video Conference delegates into the meeting. Two large format LCD Screens are housed and concealed in tastefully designed cabinets. The cabinet to the right also houses a Video Conferencing system & pan tilt zoom (PTZ) camera. There is a second camera housed at the other end of the room to accommodate the delegates at the other end of the table.
The Video Conferencing Huddle Space allows casual high stool seating and comfortable sofa seating, whilst being in conversation with the far side. Meeting participants can see their room on one screen and share the discussed data and presentation on the other.
The Brainstorming projects workspace was designed in a round table format to allow full interaction and participation between delegates. Again when required, delegates who were unable to attend in person could connect to the call via video on the large screen and share their data on screen if necessary. In this case the video of the far side would become picture in picture, with the large screen displaying the shared data.
Most other rooms have the more traditional boardroom format, with large screens at the top of the room. All cables are neatly concealed.
All Audio Visual aspects were tastefully integrated to comply with the aesthetics of the building. Keys to success were:
- strong consultation with the client,
- significant resource and time spent between the Digicom project management & the client design team,
- careful installation & commissioning of the equipment by the Digicom engineering team.
The state-of-the art site is well maintained thanks to the ongoing support of the Digicom service support team. The client also benefits from ongoing preventative maintenance & on site support and same day response to tickets opened, within agreed time periods.
