Fitting Image have recently completed the fit-out of 2 boardrooms with Cisco Telepresence systems for GE Capital Aviation Services. With locations in Dublin, Shannon and worldwide, GECAS have seen the savings to be made by investing in high quality Video Conferencing facilities, allowing meetings to take place without the cost and inconvenience of travel and overnight accommodation.
Cisco SX80 systems have been installed with dual monitors allowing seamless conferencing to take place and Data Sharing of presentations with all parties via the conference link. Camera tracking using the Cisco Speaker Track 60 system naturally cuts to a close up of whomever is speaking. This provides a natural and real feel to the meeting, helping to eliminate the distance across which the participants are speaking.
In Dublin the displays are 55” NEC units with 70” NEC units used in the larger Shannon Boardroom. The Cisco Touch 10 control panel controls the system and integrates with the global GECAS directory. Making a Video Conference call has never been easier, and more natural.
AXA MPS Financial:
The Dublin office of AXA MPS Financial is part of an Italian based operation and has an ongoing need to stay in touch with its other offices in Rome, Milan and Paris. For this task Fitting Image selected the Cisco SX80 video conferencing unit, with Speaker Track 60. Due to the relatively small size of the room a single 70” display was specified. To safely negotiate the firewall in this sensitive environment an Edgeprotect 5 Border Controller was installed, which gives secure communications between the various offices.
As well as HDMI and VGA Data sharing inputs, this installation also includes the Kramer Via Connect pro, allowing wireless connection of laptops, iPads and phones to the system. All inputs can be sent to the far end contributors. The Cisco system allows for effortless video conferencing calls, as the cameras do all of the work automatically. The Cisco Touch 10 control panel controls the system and integrates with the AXA global directory.
