The integrator installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system with voice lift capability in a remodelled conference room at the bank’s HQ in Silkeborg, Denmark. Because placement of all the elements in the Constellation system is so critical, teamwork was vital in this project. Stouenberg’s co-operation with another integrator (AV Center, which supplied projectors and

The list of partners was extensive: Crestron (lighting, control), Intelity (digital concierge), Axxess (‘do not disturb’ sign), Telepadapt (media hub, enabled ‘stream your own media’), Samsung (TV), Jacob Jensen (telephones).

Visual Acuity collaborated closely with the GSK Consumer Healthcare team and colleagues across the organisation. The design process was fully integrated

Crestron control), Meyer Sound and Jyske Bank’s architects and builders was fruitful and vital. It resulted in a proactive collaborative

culture where partners were shown each other’s way and tested possible solutions together before implementation.


The CoRE appointed CDEC not only as an integrator but also as its AV consultant, advising on the best tools and equipment needed to achieve the desired outcome. As a training facility dedicated to providing up-to-date techniques and technology for refurbishing


The brief was to incorporate TV, lighting and audio control; however, the solution exceeded client expectations by meeting several additional needs and offering a future-enabled solution. Working for renowned

Meyer Sound’s Constellation system is centred around the VRAS processor that does the “magic” in relation to the Constellation system. This product has an important role – without it Stouenberg would not have been able to deliver the dream auditorium to Jyske Bank.


The NREL’s new Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) enables researchers to design, test and analyse energy systems across global workgroups. ESIF needed to route audio, video and other data into conference and control rooms. Each space required fully functional, standalone audio with localised control, yet had to remain connected over the facility’s network. Providing up to 24 channels of input/output, each Biamp Systems AudiaFLEX uses CobraNet to distribute multichannel audio among the mulitple units. VoIP-2 cards


The ‘Mosaic Media Wall’ is a floor-to-ceiling videowall comprising rectangular arrays of Sansi LED screens of various sizes. The Sansi screens, with their high pixel density and high brightness and narrow bezels, deliver stunning HD images with impact, making them ideal

for content such as music, arts and live world news to be displayed on partial, single, or multiple screens within the wall. During workdays, the Mosaic Media Wall also plays the role of a wayfinder, providing directions and a countdown for various events.


enable VoIP conferencing directly from each AudiaFLEX. Additionally, each of the AEC-2HD cards provide two channels of acoustic echo cancellation and background noise reduction. Without this technology, managing the sound reverberation of human speech and pick-up within the widely varying conference spaces would have been extremely difficult.

The decisive component in this project was the eyevis eS100 eStreaming solution. It is used to transfer image content throughout the building from and to different locations, such as from conference rooms to the central crisis centre or vice versa. The high quality of the image transmission was a main criteria for the selection of the eStreamer boxes. The boxes work as decoders and encoders at the same time, and transmit broadcast-quality DVI signals. The eStreamers are also used to include

external devices (BYOD) throughout the system, such as laptops brought to the conference rooms. Another criteria was the security of the transmission in the premises’ dedicated network, which was ensured through the eStreamer technology.

centre: over 30 people gathered for two days to review the designs, scope of work and technology prior to construction – ensuring the project was

being managed as one team across multiple companies. Visual Acuity played a key role in orchestrating that collaboration and driving the cross-company meetings.

designer Kelly Hoppen put further pressure on the team to ensure everything was to an exacting standard and perfectly complemented the design scheme. In addition to this, the system was required to be both robust and functional.

Each company that was involved in the project worked with Poulin + Morris to provide the high-end communication system for visitors and guests of NPR. Sansi North America

provided S|Video LED displays offering the ability to change content quickly and dramatically. The digital signage component of the project was deployed and managed by Imperatives as

the Scala Certified Partner. Imperatives designed and implemented the scripts, templates and schedules. The digital signage templates are built within the Scala system in a way that maintains the integrity of the Poulin + Morris design standards, but also provides flexibility for NPR to regularly adjust content; Imperatives trained NPR staff to modify and create their own script.

older buildings in a sustainable way, the CoRE needed to lead by example in its implementation of AV. Understanding this, CDEC recommended kit that differed from what the centre had provisionally chosen, to ensure an aesthetic yet practical outcome.


In order to design the dome solution, Holovis used its own software solution In- Mo (Information in Motion). This is an application suite product that is brought to life in the CAVE, a four-sided, interactive 1:1 volumetric space. Using In-Mo, Holovis was able to create a virtual model of the showroom and

accurately position the dome in the space. This is where it was first discovered that although a 12m dome would fit in the space, the beam would obscure a section of it, making an 11m solution much more appropriate. Using In-Mo accelerated the design process and enhanced the decision-making process.
