MDIS was contracted to migrate an existing Crestron audio-visual equipment, as well as outfit a new high-end executive collaboration space with cutting-edge audio visual automation setup during the renovation of a historic office building in downtown Detroit.
The newly designed conference spaces were lovingly planned and designed to fit within the limited square footage between the historic Detroit office building brick walls, while accommodating all the clients technological needs and goals. A challenging task from a design and installation capability standepoint, this deployment included: a pair of dual 75” UH-Series 500-nit 24/7 4K Commercial Displays to engage conferencing participants in the space and to see the smallest expense of the yearly budget from farthest seat at the table; Bose FreeSpace ceiling speakers; and ClearOne BMA 360 beamforming microphone arrays for crystal clear audio and microphone capabilities. Conferencing participants are clearly seen and captured using the (2) ClearOne UNITE 150 PTZ Cameras which can be controlled by different presets of the automations control system touch panel.An AMX automation system using AMX NetLinx IP Controller and AMX Modero wall mounted touch panel to control the different technologies and customers sources in the space. AMX IP encoder and decoder video baluns were utilized with a Gigabit Cisco PoE+ switch for a 100% IP video distribution solution with 4K switching. Clients can choose from a plethora of wired and wireless sources, in room AMX Acendo Core PC, and easily distribute these to all the displays simultaneously as well as independently depending on meeting needs that day.
In order to stay cost-effective and satisfy the customers budget goals and for MDIS to win the project - existing Crestron audio-visual and control systems were uninstalled, stored, rewired, reinstalled, and reprogrammed by MDIS. This was a “daunting” task for MDIS considering the former low-voltage vendor was not on good terms with the customer and performed no documentation on the original Crestron system.
MDIS is proud to have been part of this exciting project with this noteworthy client, who will use these spaces to help our community for decades to come while engaging in their philanthropic and nonprofit endeavors.
