Based upon previous installations of Ashton Bentley systems at its Munich HQ, ISE approached the company to review its presentation and videoconference requirements. After consultation, a plan to improve and upgrade the existing systems was submitted and accepted.
Tony Leedham, business development director at Ashton Bentley, explained: “As our systems are modular and simple to disassemble, it became apparent that we could not only upgrade ISE’s existing Ashton Bentley systems by adding new components to minimise costs, but also re-purpose removed parts to provide new rooms with video collaboration.”
The upgrade involved re-using all existing Ashton Bentley components and tables, re-working table boxes to add new laptop retractors and more power sockets and supplementing them with the latest Ashton Bentley display technology.
The large meeting room was upgraded to a new dual 75in 4K display system (with latest central processor) and connected to the existing 15-seat table. The removed dual 70in display system was easily relocated to the second room to replace the existing Ashton Bentley dual 55in display system.
This dual 55in display system was ‘split’ and provided ISE with two additional single 55in presentation systems.
Mike Blackman, MD of Integrated System Events, stated: “Thank you Ashton Bentley for taking ISE out of the collaboration dark ages!”
All Ashton Bentley collaboration spaces work ‘out of the box’ as an easy to use presentation system with technology enabled tables that house multiple laptop/auxiliary inputs, power and intuitive user interface. Professional audio, a range of 4K display sizes and a unique central processor for system control and monitoring, complete the package. Then if required integrate a VC platform and the system becomes a truly versatile communication and collaboration space. VC platforms include Cisco, Dolby, Logitech, Polycom, Skype for Business, StarLeaf, Teams, Yealink and Zoom.
