Team-based AV collaboration Solutions foster creativity for large global toy company

Hasbro turned to Diversified to design and install team-based AV collaboration solutions that would help them achieve their goals.

Hasbro is the largest toy and board game maker in the world in terms of stock market value, and third largest with revenues of approximately $5 billion. From toys and games to television programming, motion pictures, digital gaming and a comprehensive licensing program, Hasbro provides children the world over with entertainment of every kind. The company’s innovative, well-known and most popular toy brands include Transformers, Littlest Pet Shop, Nerf, Playskool, My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, Magic: The Gathering and Monopoly. The Hasbro Studios division develops and produces television programming for worldwide markets.

As a global organization, Hasbro was searching for the most effective way to connect its remote employees and accelerate innovation through collaboration. As part of this initiative, they sought a sophisticated video conferencing solution in both their Montréal and Mississauga, Ontario offices that needed to be robust as well as easy to use and manage through a room automation system.

The conference and meeting rooms in both locations were equipped with state-of-the-art video conferencing systems complete with the latest in display technology, allowing local Hasbro staff to connect with their distributed teams easily and visually exchange ideas.

Furthermore, to enhance the video conference experience, the Diversified team installed a sound amplification technology with a sophisticated button microphone system supporting easy, two-way conversation and ensuring each participant could clearly hear the meeting or presentation that was underway. With this user friendly system now in place, Hasbro employees in its Ontario and Quebec offices are able to collaborate and present ideas in a cohesive and creative way with their team members across the world.
