The finalists for the InAVation Awards 2017 have been revealed and we are delighted to be in the running for the Corporate Project Award. This is for the OMERS installation that we completed earlier this year alongside MiX Consultancy and it has taken the industry by storm.
With the heart of its operation based in Canada, OMERS required true global connectivity, both in terms of AV conferencing systems and monitoring solutions. This was achieved using a Crestron Fusion enterprise management system to integrate the building and AV technologies, so they work together as a single system, accessible globally through the OMERS WAN.
Video conferencing solutions were a key focus of this project and needed to be delivered in the flagship boardroom, four video conferencing suites, four presentation rooms and a flexible space, which can be set up as two presentation suites or one larger meeting room for theatre style sessions.
The piece-de-resistance of the installation is the Boardroom on the 29th floor with dual 98” NEC screens that are presented in a landscape format, making them almost as spectacular as the London skyline view.
Darren Barton-Taylor, Focus 21 Sales Director explains:
“This installation has been hailed by OMERS as a shining example of how all communications should be conducted with the site christened as the new global standard. Plans are now underway to replicate this set up worldwide, with Toronto Canada being the next stop.”
