Background

A prominent nonprofit organization in Southern California sought to upgrade its meeting and training facilities to enhance collaboration and communication. The organization, dedicated to empowering individuals through various developmental programs, required a more integrated and efficient audiovisual system in their meeting spaces.

Challenge

The existing setup included Crestron DMPS units and Crestron Control Processors, which needed to meet the current demands for seamless connectivity and ease of use. The primary challenge was to upgrade these spaces to a more streamlined, user-friendly system that could support advanced video conferencing and live feeds from training rooms to conference room areas.

Solution Proposed by AV Planners

AV Planners proposed a comprehensive upgrade to Q-SYS Teams Rooms, marking a significant shift from the existing Crestron setup. The solution encompassed the following key aspects:

  • Conversion of Q-SYS DSPs: Existing Q-SYS Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) were reconfigured to serve as video routers and control processors. This conversion enhanced conferencing systems' video and audio quality, ensuring high-definition communication across various platforms.
  • Simplified Viewing for Social Skills Feeds: A significant part of the upgrade was simplifying viewing live feeds from the Social Skills training rooms to their Executive conference rooms. This enhancement would facilitate better monitoring and interaction between participants in different rooms.
  • Low-voltage cabling: Additional data cabling was necessary to support viewing Social Skills feeds. AV Planners acknowledged the need for this infrastructure upgrade and proposed coordinating closely with the relevant contractors for the cable installation, ensuring minimal disruption to the organization's daily operations.

 

Outcome

The proposed upgrade by AV Planners aimed to revolutionize the way the nonprofit organization conducted its meetings and training sessions. By integrating advanced Q-SYS Teams Rooms, the organization expected to experience:

  • Enhanced video and audio quality for remote communication.
  • Easier access and control for various AV functionalities.
  • Streamlined viewing of live training sessions, fostering better engagement and learning.
