Voltea Dallas – New Office AV Installation
Main Conference Room
Voltea needed a cost-effective way to communicate with their office in the Netherlands as well as with clients and remote workers. They needed to allow far end participants to see and hear the staff in the Dallas office as well as screen share to review content. Additionally, they wanted the system to be very easy to use, and they wanted to allow their staff to initiate these conferences from any laptop that is brought into the Main Conference Room.
With the growing popularity of soft codec conferencing and the many different affordable conferencing platforms to choose from, the obvious answer was to make the solution a PC conferencing system. From there, JSAV evaluated the technical abilities and workflow of the users. While it was identified that the users in both offices, as well as their clients, were proficient in using software like Skype for Business and Zoom, it did not fit into their workflow very well to have to initiate a video call and an audio call separately.
The final solution provided the ability to connect to the Biamp Devio docking station to allow the laptop to have a single USB connection to gain access to the installed USB camera and wired tabletop microphones. We proved that PC conferencing doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. We were able to offer this solution for under $8,000 fully installed.
