MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems has relocated its global headquarters to accommodate both its growing business and changing workplace preferences. Located in the burgeoning business community of Kings Park, New York on Long Island, MultiDyne’s 15-minute move north brings modernised office facilities, hybrid meeting spaces, and much more to the company’s business operations, including a large showroom for trainings and events.
“We wanted to create a more inviting workplace that people want to come to, while addressing the need for hybrid events and a healthier work/life balance,” said Frank Jachetta, CEO, MultiDyne. “This a flexible and communal space that encourages collaboration and innovation, and will empower smarter growth strategies for MultiDyne’s business moving forward.”
To accentuate Jachetta’s latter point, the new facility will accommodate MultiDyne’s Niagara Video business following its recent acquisition of the company. An open interior enables stronger collaboration between departments, while providing ample dedicated spaces for MultiDyne’s sales, engineering and shipping/receiving operations, for example.
The showroom includes a large video wall that highlights MultiDyne’s latest products and innovations for the broadcast, commercial AV and digital cinema communities, making this area the ideal centrepiece when hosting partners and other customers. Modern meeting spaces, including a conference room, incorporate collaboration technologies designed to make in-person and remote attendees equal participants.
“The need to accommodate remote participants for company meetings is especially important as MultiDyne’s presence expands in other regions,” said Jesse Foster, VP of products and Western US Sales. “We recently opened our first EMEA office in Poland, and our new Teams collaboration infrastructures allows us to bring the EMEA operation into company meetings with greater efficiency, improving productivity. There is also greater flexibility for specific teams to meet in smaller groups, and even a production space with a green screen to produce our own corporate videos.”
The building itself is surrounded by green space, offering serenity to staff and visitors that want to enjoy the exterior grounds. MultiDyne shares the 31,000 square foot space with Tin Mirror Studios, a production studio with professional video, audio and editing capabilities, bringing some true professional camaraderie to the campus.
Jachetta also expects to host occasional industry events in the Kings Park facility, including local SMPTE chapter meetings. Jachetta was recently elected as secretary of the SMPTE Long Island Chapter.
