Saville fits out boardroom, VC facility, reception for Samsung London13 March 2013
Saville Audio Visual has designed and installed a range of integrated systems and furniture in the London headquarters of Samsung SDS Europe at Fleet Place House.
The videoconferencing installation in the boardroom included a bespoke table, manufactured in-house by Saville to Samsung’s specifications. The V-shaped table houses inlaid Extron table interfaces, allowing for selection of nine VGA/audio inputs, with a further VGA output at each interface for future addition of on-desk repeater monitors.
The main display is provided by a 4×2 HD videowall or via a ceiling recessed projector and a motorised drop-down screen. The video wall is configured to group the screens in two layouts, selectable via a touch panel for conferencing or presentation purposes. A nine-screen videowall was also installed in the reception area.
The conferencing technology includes a Polycom HDX8000 codec with a Biamp Nexia digital audio system, incorporating 17 beyerdynamic table microphones plus in-ceiling and program sound speakers. Push-button logic on the microphones controls the active speakers, whilst zooming the Polycom HD Eagle Eye camera to the current active participant. All audio switching and control is via the Biamp Tesira digital sound processor.
The existing VC system was completely re-engineered and re-programmed by the Saville technical team and is now operated from an AMX touch panel on the table, or via a ‘virtual’ AMX Modero package which can be used on PC or Mac computers.
Amongst the equipment installed were eight Samsung LED Blu 46” displays and three Samsung S19A450BW 19" LCD screens; a Sharp LHD700 full HD projector; a Biamp Audiaflex DSP system; an MC2 T1000 2-channel amplifier; four Tannoy low profile ceiling speakers and two flush wall mount speakers; and an Ampetronic A500 loop induction kit
