Cooper Associates Group, a financial advisory firm with headquarters based in Taunton, required a technology-based environment for their 20-seater conference room and smaller client suite where both internal staff and clients could be presented to and trained.
Both meeting rooms have glass door separators which Cooper Associates wanted to take advantage of by showing the same content on both screens, with identical audio flowing in both rooms, transforming the space into a multi-location training facility.
The ability to manipulate presentations, investment opportunities or mortgage styles to the live audience whilst either training or presenting was also an integral requirement for the company.
As proud sponsors of Somerset County Cricket Club, the space would also be used for entertainment and presentation evenings, as well as a place to relax with music, radio or live sport streaming through the system.
Environments for Business drafted in specialist supplier and installer, Sounds With Vision who recommended and installed the spectacular Optoma OP861RK+ 86” Interactive Flat Panel Display (IFP) in the main conference room, and the Optoma OP651RK+ 65” IFP for the client suite.
To complement the IFPs, Optoma's QuickCast was installed and linked to a Wyrestorm Matrix allowing them to work in unison in both rooms. The single HDMI dongle gives presenters the ability to remotely attach their laptop and present wirelessly – with the addition of audio passed through.
Andrew Bissett, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sounds With Vision, said: “The pair of Optoma IFPs and Optoma's QuickCast presented the perfect answer for the client who necessitated a discreet, state-of-the-art, and functional solution, with ease of use being an integral aspect too.”
He added: “We’ve worked with Optoma on previous projects and found their service second to none, with care and attention provided at every stage – from pre-sales to after installation, as can be evidenced in Tyrone Hammill at Optoma visiting after installation to provide training on equipment – completely free-of-charge!”
Diana Cooper, Operations and Finance Director at Cooper Associates Group, explained: “It was imperative the technology solution in both meeting rooms delivered the ‘WoW factor’ upon clients and business associates walking into the space – whilst remaining in keeping with our current minimalist and professional office aesthetics. A combination of the 4K resolution and the wireless QuickCast delivers this effortlessly!
“Functionality was also very important, being able to show the same content on both screens through the TapCast app allows us to transform the space into a multi-location training and presentation facility, as well as being able to showcase our branding on both screens at once. The ability to manipulate presentations, investment opportunities or mortgage styles to the audience, whilst either training or presenting will also be an invaluable tool.”
