A federal contractor gave Avitecture an intriguing challenge: design and build environmentally-friendly and easy-to-use videowall systems for two boardrooms in an LEED-certified building.
Avitecture’s elegant solutions for the two boardrooms surpassed the client’s goals.
For the corporate boardroom, the larger space, Avitecture’s solution was a Prysm 190-inch (4.8 m) diagonal videowall with an area of 75 sq ft (6.8 m2) because of its low-energy consumption, brilliant image quality, and powerful interactive features. Because a major design requirement was ease of use for executives leading meetings in the boardroom, Avitecture provided a Crestron control system with multiple touch panels throughout the boardroom to allow users to manage voice, video, room lights, and content. A powerful integrated system, remotely located, provides the intelligence and power to run the corporate boardroom’s displays and electronics. A DigitalMedia 16×16 Matrix Switcher enables a dedicated PC, laptops in the boardroom, CATV, and a Polycom unified collaboration system to be routed to the Prysm videowall. A Biamp AudiaFLEX digital signal processor and an Avitecture Ceiling Disk Microphone system join together deliver clear audio through Soundtube speakers powered by an Extron amplifier.
For the corporate executive conference room, the smaller space, Avitecture chose a 4×2 Planar videowall using 46-inch LCD displays. The videowall provides 50 square feet (4.7 m2) of viewing area. For ease of use in meetings, Avitecture chose a Crestron control system with a touch panel. In a closet behind the videowall is a Crestron DigitalMedia 16×16 Matrix Switcher that enables a dedicated PC in the rack, two laptop locations on the conference room table, CATV, and a Polycom unified collaboration system enables sharing voice, video and content. A Biamp Nexia TC teleconferencing digital signal processor and an Avitecture Ceiling Disk Microphone system together deliver crisp audio through Soundtube speakers powered by an Extron amplifier.
