Shanahans Engineering

Shanahan Engineering requested Digicom to design and deliver a state of the art boardroom and presentation facility at their new Dun Laoghaire HQ.  The requirement was to provide an integrated AV solution to deliver a premium Audio and Video Conferencing experience for participants.

The deployed technologies were to be ‘best of breed’ and should handle HDMI signalling and scaling and overcome the challenges of HDCP and HDMI signalling over distances.   The equipment deployment needed to occupy a minimum of  real estate and be housed in a local credenza to ensure the boardroom retained its clean lines and remained clutter free.  Users needed to be presented with an effective and intuitive Graphical User Interface in a familiar form.

As the user base were familiar with Apple Tablets, the AMX TPContol application was selected to deliver AMX Touch Panel functionally on the familiar Apple iPad tablet.

AMX and the Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher was chosen as the core AV Platform as it addressed all of the client’s key technology requirements in a single compact enclosure.  The DVX delivered all of the components required to control/automate the boardroom  environment into a simple, flexible, comprehensive solution including control, video switching, transcoding and scaling, and local and remote distribution – all in a single, compact enclosure. In addition to these capabilities available on   either solution, the DVX offers room-level capabilities such as multi-format local inputs, audio mixing and amplification in the same enclosure.

The key features of the AMX Enova DVX are as follows:

All-In-One Boardroom In A Box Solution: Control, audio & video switching/distribution, scaling, converting, transcoding, amplification, plus built-in professional-grade DSP audio mixing and twisted pair distribution, all in a single   chassis.

SmartScale Technology: Automatically ensures signal output is scaled to every    display’s native resolution glitch free every time.

HDMI/HDCP Compliance: End-to-end distribution of HDMI signals with full HDCP, with the simplicity of analog, without interruption or key constraints using AMX’s InstaGate Pro technology.

Game Changing Device: Standardizing on this box reduces Total Cost of Ownership, including substantial savings in maintenance and energy utilization.

Arvato

Arvato offers managed services and integrated outsourcing services and solutions. Arvato’s more than 63,000 employees are engaged in designing and implementing integrated solutions for business processes.

Project Summary

Digicom were responsible for the design, build and on-going support of the Audio Visual Integrated solution at Arvato. Arvato are well recognised for delivering excellence in customer service and fundamental to their approach, is to retain their people, in order to exceed client expectations.

Arvato had a passion to deliver a ‘Best Place to Work’ environment and sought many unique and affordable idea’s that was intricate with the detail. Digicom fitted out twenty two AV enabled Meeting rooms, including Training Room, Boardroom, AV enabled Creative Areas, Restaurant, plus Small Meeting Rooms and several large meeting rooms with Video Conference Facilities.

This comprised of Cisco Video Conferencing and Interactive Touch Screens and dual large LED   displays. While at reception and other key strategic viewing areas Digital Signage was installed to share corporate information neatly and dynamically. In all these areas there was a striving to ensure that the AV installation fitted the buildings aspirational brief so slim bezel LED Screens where adopted throughout the building.

Arvato also created conference facilities where they can engage with clients or staff alike. Here as well as having a hospitality facility, the clients can view presentations comfortably. This is achieved by a Ceiling Recessed Motorized Screen and a Projector on a hoist, coming down from the ceiling, when required. If the room is filled to capacity, a further two Large Format LCD Panels come down on Butterfly Hoists, from the ceiling. The room also has an even distribution of ceiling recessed speakers, in order to allow the even amplification of voice enhancement, throughout the room.

“Digicom were able to provide a team that supported developing the conceptual aspirations of the Project Design Team, right through the sales stage and to the infrastructure design of the project.  They also provided project management to ensure that the project deliverables were achieved under pressurised projects timelines, while slotting in with the other contractors.  The results and successes of these attributes contributed to them being awarded the maintenance contract which we hope will lead to a fruitful relationship in the future.”

IBM Case Study

IBM’s Technology Campus in Mulhuddart, Dublin, hosts their globally integrated international missions, delivers services, manufacturing, research and software development.

 

Project Summary

Digicom designed and installed a high brightness/high resolution video conferencing and presentation system for IBM’s Auditorium in their new Technology Campus. The solution provides ease of internal communication and is used to showcase IBM’s technology to clients. For the presentation system, a large format panel was the chosen technology. To achieve the appropriate scale, a 3×3 video wall was deemed necessary. Samsung 46” screens, ultra-narrow bezel, were deployed in order to achieve the best continuity of image.

Along with the video wall, the auditorium has 4 comfort monitors along the walls for adhoc presentations and where small detail is required. The chosen video conferencing system was a Polycom HDX 8000 coupled with a dual HD camera offering high definition video, voice and content communication. The auditorium posed an acoustic challenge. To overcome the reverberant nature of the space, a Bose line array system was specified thus keeping reflected sound to a minimum.
