An Australian Government Agency had a requirement to migrate from a traditional office environment to a collaborative environment in their new facilities in Canberra. To facilitate this, a complex system of Audio Visual (AV) was required to support the hot-desking and mobile environment, using products from Crestron, Exterity, Cisco, and others.
As part of the move into the new offices, the Agency planned to transition to a flexible, mobile, and collaborative working environment. This was to include the use of desktop and meeting room teleconferencing with touch screen and wireless interactive displays. There was also a requirement to supply a combination of free-to-air, cable, and Government television channels to over a hundred meeting rooms and offices.
CDM recommended a combined solution featuring Exterity IPTV AND Kramer screen sharing with Crestron video switching and presentation devices. This included provision for IPTV displays in 70 manager offices, 11 swivel IPTV displays in senior manager offices, and five displays in the executive offices. The displays in the senior manager and executive offices could be used for presentations from the computer in each room. There were also three large meeting rooms with video-conferencing, another 11 large meeting rooms with presentation systems, and complex presentation and video conferencing requirements in the Executive area. The most complex facility was a reconfigurable suite of six meetings/training rooms which could be merged in any combination. Finally, there was also a mobile presentation system which could be set up for use in a large atrium for events which could be attended by all the staff working in the building.
