Vaughan Sound has completed the installation of AV systems at Gocompare.com’s new head offices in Newport.
The British financial services comparison specialist is well known in the UK from its TV advertising campaigns – which recently have acknowledged how irritating the opera singer character featured in earlier advertisements was to many viewers. The company was founded in 2006 and based in the south-east Wales city, required a number of new AV products as well as the decommissioning of existing TVs and their relocation to their new premises within the adjacent Imperial House.
Vaughan Sound was invited by Paramount Interiors to specify, supply, install and commission AV systems to 13 key areas at Gocompare.com’s new location, including several offices, meeting rooms, the boardroom and reception.
Three 46in smart LED TVs were specified and mounted to walls within the Reception area and two other spaces.
Various floor box connection plates with VGA, HDMI, USB and PC Audio capabilities were fitted throughout a number of the meeting rooms, while the boardroom also received a SMART Board 680i5 interactive whiteboard with SMART UF75 ultra short-throw projector and SBA-L speakers.
The same multimedia projection and audio equipment was fitted within a separate open plan office space, while another meeting room received a Polycom HDX 7000-720 codec complete with Eagle Eye 720 camera and HD microphone array, for high-quality videoconferencing and visual workplace communication.
Vaughan Sound also provided a one-day onsite SMART Board training course for Gocompare.com staff, ensuring they were up to speed in the use of the new equipment.
