Within three months, Diversified installed single-screen Crestron RL systems in 24 conference rooms and executive offices, dual-screen systems in two conference rooms, and a custom package in the boardroom. Each of the standard Crestron packages includes one or two 65” flat-panel displays with interactive whiteboarding and screen markup capabilities, a communications codec based on Skype, a fixed-focus, high-definition camera with microphone, a speaker bar on each display, and a 10” tabletop
In the large boardroom, which includes a 22-seat oval table, Diversified designers created a custom solution using a 103” plasma for the main display, a pan/tilt/zoom camera and a sound system with an audio processor and delegated microphones.
Each room provides the advanced presentation features the company was looking for such as video conferencing and collaboration from room to room and from room to individual employee. “We’re also able to connect to traditional, standards-based video conferencing systems through a bridge that Diversified provides,” Colley adds. That’s especially useful because WMT works closely with orthopaedic surgeons in developing their products, and the surgeons may not always be Skype users.
