Saville opens London telepresence facility16 August 2012
UK integrator Saville Audio Visual is to open a London telepresence demonstration facility in the heart of the City, designed, built and installed by its own team.
After investing over £500,000 in a suite of demonstration facilities at its head office, the company has invested a further £100,000 in the new bespoke facility, located in the MWB Liverpool Street, 55 Old Broad Street, close to Liverpool Street station.
The system is powered by Polycom’s ATX telepresence engine, with three 60” High Definition screens in a veneered telepresence credenza, created in the Saville furniture workshops. With three touchscreen content monitors and a touchscreen controller plus an acoustic control panelled rear wall, the room is designed to seat six people.
“The TP Centre is ideally located for our clients and prospective customers in London,” said Saville southern business manager Darren Pitt. “The technology is intuitively easy to use and delivers stunning images and natural sound. It represents a true state-of-the-art global conferencing facility and illustrates our capabilities in the design and installation of bespoke immersive TP environments”.
The Saville TP Centre will be available for hands-on demonstration visits or for rental and an official launch event is planned for September.
