Teleconferencing Boardroom 2017




After a previous unsuccessful installation by another AV integrator, AVC was approached by a large financial institution to implement a solution that would meet the Audio Visual needs in one of their executive boardrooms.

The client had a large boardroom which needed teleconferencing, presentation, control and recording capabilities. With video and audio recordings to be stored on the client’s network storage.  AVC designed and installed a solution that would cater for these needs, but also catered for considerations that the client had not specified. With the solution AVC implemented, an audio mix-minus system was included in the system design. This featured could have easily been omitted during consultations with the client. But due to many years’ experience, asking the correct questions and most importantly listening intently to client’s needs, this feature was included in the system design.

During the system design phase, products were carefully selected to ensure that the equipment list was kept to a minimum, but that that the system would meet and surpass the clients expectations. In this way, AVC prides itself on offer clients Quality AV systems at very reasonable prices, offering our clients great value for money.

 A mix-minus system caters local sound/voice re-enforcement, which allows participants to hear each other clearly on opposite ends of the boardroom table. In this way, all participants can be clearly heard in the boardroom regardless of whether or not they are soft spoken.

AVC’s in house programmers also had some clever tricks up their sleeve when it came to control system and Digital Sound Processor (DSP) programming. On the DSP side, gain sharing was opted for instead of conventional microphone gating. This would ensure that no speech syllables were cut off on the audio system, thus improving the quality and intelligibility of the audio recordings.
