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