ELAN g! control system upgrades conference room at US bank16 December 2014
Franklin Synergy Bank’s new headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee has completed the installation of an ELAN g! control system to help make the most of its conference room space.
Working with local integrator Audio Video Elements, Franklin Synergy Bank created an AV system that serves double duty in a convertible conference room with a retractable divider. The AV system can be operated easily whether it is utilised as a single large conference room with one media presentation, or as two smaller rooms with separate audio and video for each room.
“Creating a single AV system that is easy to use in multiple configurations can be a challenge,” said Aaron Lawrence, owner of Audio Video Elements. “The final result is a multi-purpose room that converts from a large conference room with a singular AV system to two smaller rooms with two distinct AV systems, using all the same equipment and the same controls. Simplicity was extremely important for this project, and that extends all the way to the custom podium we designed that includes a 10in monitor so speakers can follow their presentations without having to turn around.”
“We installed TVs and data infrastructure throughout the whole building, requiring more than 100 Cat5 runs, but the crown jewel is this conference room,” said Lawrence. “The versatility of this conference room will allow Franklin Synergy Bank to use it as they see fit, and to do so easily. Even though the technology is very advanced, it took less than 10 minutes to show employees how to use it. That’s what’s so great about the ELAN g! system, that it can perform all these really powerful automation processes but is easy enough for a complete technophobe to operate.”
