A leading financial institution required an impressive boardroom with the latest in communication technology for their presentations. They needed a system that allowed spreadsheet presentations visible to all attendees in a conference room over 20-feet long. The biggest challenge with this project was the wall of glass to the outside which provided a high level of ambient light. The room had also been designed using several pendant lights over the center of the table, making the use of a projection device not feasible. The challenge in any boardroom is to make sure the person at the head of the table, usually the most important person in the meeting, can easily view the screen at the far end of the table. Avidex created a two-by-two matrix of flat-screen monitors with thin bezels and a blending device that allowed the four flat screens to operate as one or independently, for marketing or video conferencing events. This project is "hi-tech meets elegance." The matrix of monitors was inset into a veneer architectural wall providing an upscale overall appearance. The video panels were the perfect solution creating a clear, sharp and vibrant image with the challenges stemming from the lighting issues. The ambient outside light was controlled by tinted window applique. The projection system installed is capable of displaying media from DVD/BluRay, VTC, dedicated computer, and satellite. Avidex supplied 6 flush-mounted ceiling speakers for excellent sound quality.
A large 46-inch display was installed in their main lobby for digital signage functionality - displaying marketing messages and a constant flow of local, national, and financial news.
"We hired Avidex to coordinate the installation of a full digital signage solution in all of our branches. After thoroughly examining each of the sites, Avidex worked hard to help us create the most impactful display for the best value – well under our budget. The Avidex Customer Support Team was amazing, readily available whenever we had a question or needed help. Avidex coordinated with Captive Indoor Media, our content provider, to quickly address any compatibility or configuration issues. They made several follow-up visits to ensure the job was done right. It is refreshing to work with a vendor who so confidently stands behind their products and services. Avidex is competent, helpful, and a pleasure to work with.” - Andy Wright – Marketing Manager, Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union
