RTE harnesses Barco for ‘office of the future’

RTE has selected Barco technology for its new ‘state-of-the-art’ office in La Défense.

The new site features high-tech collaboration solutions in its meeting rooms, crisis centre and huddle rooms from Barco.

The building has over 230 CSE-200 and 80 CSE-800 units installed in its meeting rooms as part of an interconnected technological ecosystem used throughout the digital building. Flagship CSE-800 allows wireless connection to central screen and up to eights users on-screen simultaneously for moderation, blackboarding and annotation.

Arthur Catinaud, the engineer in charge of the process, said: “The new site has gathered over 2,000 people. This was the opportunity to rethink our workspace to enhance comfort and collaborative spirit.

“Our work at RTE requires a sharp reactivity and agility because to imagine the electricity transportation of tomorrow. Barco’s ClickShare solution has strengthened our crisis management capabilities by facilitating decision-making among different jobs across the company.”  The solution, said the company, has been “perfectly integrated into the full ecosystem” by being wired to the networked and managed by a dedicated computer acting as a firewall.

Catinaud added: “Staff and visitors have been positively surprised at how easy it is to collaborate. They are now able to join meetings, share screens and interact with content in over 150 meeting rooms and 166 huddle rooms. Customisation of tools make it comfortable to tailor usage rule, backgrounds and booking screens at the entrance of each room. Thanks to ClickShare, we have significantly gained in comfort and synergy among different teams.”

A dedicated IT manager oversees managing all meetings room and daily support across the new Window site. Information and training sessions are planned during lunch-breaks. From the Auditorium (also equipped with UDX Barco projector) to the crisis management rooms, meeting rooms and huddle rooms, ClickShare is said to be present in more than 300 spaces and consistently used by the 2,00teamam members on-site.
