Allied World Assurance Boardroom
Allied World Assurance Company is a leading global insurance & re-insurance company. Situated in London’s iconic 30 St Mary’s Axe “The Gherkin”.
We were asked to develop an executive environment that would replicate each of the other rooms with adjustments being made for room size and configuration. The showcase of the facilities being a partitioned boardroom room with two 75” Panasonic High Definition displays working in a single or room join format.
A Cabletime IPTV Distribution System to provide high quality digital television images including corporate signage throughout the building.
The systems installed were a modular system offering further expansion for any future requirements. This system also allowed the transport of video and audio from other sources such as Tablet or Video Conferencing Codec’s for commercial and company messages.
Polycom Video Conferencing was introduced to improve communication between all AWAC partners and global offices.
To ensure the quality of Audio matched the HD image in table microphones were deployed with the larger boardroom having a simple touch sensitive halo ring system to identify when microphones are in use or muted. To meet the clients requirements of audiovisual equipment for the systems to be operated easily and understood by all who need to use it.
To help achieve this aim AVAT installed control through the use of Crestron Control Systems with added support of remote management via Crestron Roomview .
The project had to reflect the high quality surroundings and client demands. AVAT delivered this with great professionalism and dedicated engineering. The result is outstanding and meets the remit with positive feedback from the executive staff, which I can say are difficult to please. I would have no hesitation in recommending AVAT for future projects.
