South Western Railway are really Zooming now…

When South Western Railway wanted a high-end video conferencing solution for their boardrooms and meeting rooms in London and Southampton, they appointed Avita Group as the Audio-Visual expert to deliver.

Ensuring high quality audio was key to all the rooms as the client expressed this was one of the main problems with conferencing systems in the past. Ease of use was also important and, of course, video clarity.

After some discussion, the decision to implement a Zoom native solution throughout was made, using Crestron for the conferencing client and control, with 10″ on-table touch panels and Crestron’s windows-based UC Engines behind the display panels.

Microphones are discretely installed in the ceiling of each room using Shure flagship MXA910 beamforming technology. These provide outstanding microphone pickup and are directional to minimise any reverb or echo. Ceiling speakers provide audio output, and each room is complimented with simple HDMI connectivity for local presentation and content sharing for visitors.

The beauty of the solution is that whilst behind the scenes the system uses high end components and complex audio signal processing, the end user experience is simple, with one touch conferencing using the on-table touch screen, keeping training to a minimum and giving confidence to any user that the room can be used easily.
