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.
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 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
