4×3 wrap-around video display media wall

The Brief

In the first instance, Quadra were approached by an AV integrator acting on behalf of their client, a leading water utility company, who were looking to install a 90 degree media wall in their large boardroom to include a concave corner panel to link both walls to provide a wrap-around solution.

The media wall had to accommodate a 4×3 video wall and at 90 deg to it, an 84” touch screen. To give an idea of scale, the overall dimensions of the media wall is 10m wide by 2.6m high.

Once the end user was satisfied that Quadra had the ability to provide the solution, site meetings were held to discuss drawings and finishes.

Prior to manufacture, a 3d CGI visual was provided incorporating a white melamine finish with a satin vinyl wrap, which the re-seller’s client approved.

Solution

All the AV hardware was delivered to Quadra’s workshops to ensure that it would fit perfectly.  Working in partnership with the reseller, Quadra built up the media wall and the integrator then fitted all the hardware. The end users team then visited the workshops to check hardware function and to sign off and approve the media wall. All items were then removed and the wall dismantled, for packing and delivery to site.

In conjunction with the reseller, the Quadra team re-assembled the wall, the reseller’s engineers installed and connected all the AV equipment and the installation was completed on time and on budget.

The Outcome

Feedback received via the reseller was that the end user was absolutely delighted with the finished solution. Board members and visitors were highly complementary both of room functionality and aesthetics.

The Brief

The University of Chester is a public university located in the historic city of Chester England. The University, the first purpose-built teacher training college in the UK, based in 5 campus sites in and around Chester and one in Warrington, offers a range of foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as undertaking academic research.

The University had a room available which was of the right size and location for a meeting room with tele-presence facilities.  The University had already appoineted an AV integrator to supply and install the AV technology for the room, and after a number of meetings Quadra were appointed to design and provide bespoke furniture and room decoration including suspended ceiling and room lighting.

Solution

Quadra was provided with a blank canvas to completely refurbish a meeting room for tele-presence videoconferencing and other purposes. The audio visual technology was provided by a 3rd party AV integrator, leaving Quadra to design and build the boardroom table, media wall as well as providing the suspended ceiling, lighting and carpet.  The ceiling also incorporated a drop down screen and projector to form a standard meeting room layout.

Within the media wall Quadra had to design in 3 display screens for the tele-presence and a large confidence monitor below, we also supplied and incorporated a Quadra open frame rack into one end of the media wall, which was then populated with AV assets by the AV integrator.

With tele-presence in mind, we designed the table in a barrel shape so 6 delegates seated on far side of the table enjoy a clear view of the displays and are clearly visible by the VC cameras located above each screen.

The Outcome

The solution has proven to be an unqualified success.  The client reports that the tele-presence experience is uncannily realistic with the remote participants appearing almost to be in the same room!  The furniture entirely complements the electronics to provide the perfect space and ambiance for video conferencing and other meetings.

The Co-operative group is a British consumer co-operative with a diverse family of retail businesses including food retail, electrical, financial services, insurance, legal and funeral care.

The Co-op required a meeting room to accommodate 12 delegates utilising video conferencing.  Their brief to Quadra was to create a clean and functional space, for meetings and video conferencing.  Due to the nature of the area concerned, once the furniture had been designed, built and delivered on site, the client insisted the installation must be completed within 48 hours.

Solution

At one end of the room Quadra designed and built a bespoke paneled wall primarily to conceal connecting cables and other services required for the room but also to improve the acoustics as the walls are made of glass.  Located in front of the wall paneling is a matching 4 door credenza to incorporate a Quadra open frame rack to accommodate av components.

The table which is also finished in matching Ash veneer but also including a walnut centre, is designed to seat 12 people all of whom need to enjoy a good view of the display screen and for the VC camera to have good visibility of each room delegate.

The Outcome

The customer was highly delighted with the end result as the meeting space was truly transformed and created a great working environment.  The end user was very happy with the speed and efficiency of the installation.

And yes the installation was completed within the 48 hours allocated!

Identical Telepresence suites installed in the boardrooms for National Grid at The Strand London and Warwick

Finished in Maple and Walnut veneers

Design Brief
National Grid had a requirement to refurbish their boardrooms in London and their Warwick head office to incorporate telepresence technology. Both venues had to seat 22 people and to gain the full telepresence effect had to be absolutely identical to each other. Multi screen video conferencing technology was to be installed in both venues to allow meetings of up to 44 participants with a clear view of each individual present as if they were together in a single room.

Solution
We drew the room layout and applied various table shapes each of which allowed the 3 video conferencing cameras an acceptable perspective of each individual present within the 2 rooms. We then provided photo realistic visuals of the design which the client approved.
The client decided on the a tapered shape table with maple and walnut veneers. This design met their requirements both technically and aesthetically.  The installations in both rooms were carried out simultaneously and the rooms are  genuinely indistinguishable one from the other.

The Outcome

” We are absolutely delighted with the end result, technically the design works just the way we hoped. Aesthetically it looks great and feels as though it has always been this way.  Both colleagues and visitors have been very complementary about the design.”
