The brief for the project was to provide a fully configurable system with multiple displays to provide information to different areas of the building, as well as broadcast audio across various locations, ensuring essential lines of communication remain open during a disaster event.
Each meeting room had a combination of Panasonic LCD displays and Epson Ultra Short Throw Projectors, with two areas dedicated to Panasonic Video Walls.
NQAV supplied and installed an AMX SVSi Video over the IP distribution system to deliver the complete flexibility required for the project. This was delivered utilising multiple Cisco 9300 Series switches. The design included both Table Box connections and Wall Plate Connection points for Laptops and Computers and Video Conferencing for 2 of the main Conference Rooms.
NQAV Audio throughout the venue was delivered through an entire Bose Dante system. The completed project also comprised a ControlSpace EX1280 Processor with a Power Match Amplifier & DS Ceiling Speakers, 8 Audinate AVIO Dante endpoints and 2 Shure MXA910 Dante Microphones.
The entire system is controlled with an AMX Control system using a combination of 7 and 10-inch touch panels. The controls within each room allow switching between several content & audio sources and volume control. The Video Wall control was designed to allow council staff to change the format of the displays to either provide 1 large and 2 smaller images or 6 individual content sources. A dedicated Admin Touch Panel was provided to allow LDCC management to push or pull any content source to any display within the facility.
LDCC management was pleased with the outcome of the system, which provided them with a level of technology that had not been available to them before to help manage disasters in the area. This system was so successful that NQAV would be installing this system into another TCC building shortly.
