BCS Financial

Project: BCS Financial Corporation

Project Description

Design and Integrate a variety of enablement in a variety of conference and meeting rooms with the highest possible level of technological transparency.  Room designs included:

  • 1 Telephone Conferencing Enabled Boardroom
  • 2 Video Conferencing Enabled Multi-Media Rooms
  • 1 Telephone Conferencing Enabled Meeting Room
  • 4 AV Enabled Meeting Rooms
  • 1 Flex Space
  • 2 Common Area Broadcast Displays
  • 1 Four-Panel Branding Wall

Unique Challenges

This project required complete integrated touch panel control of every system device using IR, Relay, Serial and IP protocols across an End of Line IT Routing System.  Additionally Video Conferencing needed to operate on the same IT system which was identified by the Manufacturer as not able to support any form of Video Conferencing.  The entire facility is a high profile, public facing front end and all integrations needed to be simple, aesthetically pleasing, and user friendly.

Our Solution

Frequency Audio worked directly with Polycom & the BCS IT Team to develop a multi network transport system for video and control which worked in and around the existing network while maintaining Security Audit Standards and the quality of function desired by the client.  We used the corporate marketing colors to develop custom graphics for all of the touch panel control systems and used a standard control model with room to room variances representing the differentiation in function and available technology in each room.
