Suncoast Credit Union
Suncoast Credit Union is a financial institution serving their clients in over 21 counties in Florida.
Their executive conference room needed a refresh from an architectural and technology stand point. Suncoast needed a way to present large video images and teleconference to other branches and executive staff. Suncoast Credit Union reached out to BCI Integrated Solutions to find a solution for their executive conference room. BCI proposed a design-build solution to create a user-friendly conferencing space for all executives.
Suncoast Credit Union’s conference table is 30 ft. deep and the ceiling height is only 9 ft., this creates a challenge for the space because of sight lines (i.e. the person in the rear of the room still needed to read information on the display.) Suncoast did not want to use projection because a projection system requires a lot of maintenance from lamp replacement, to cleaning of filters, and cost associated with it in downtime.
With this information in mind, BCI proposed a video wall display that required little to no maintenance. The video wall proposed was a 3x3 video wall that is 3 monitors high by 3 monitors wide with 46” displays equaling an approximately 140” display.
Because of the unique, V-Shape of the 30’ long conference table, the microphones needed to be strategically placed to pick up everyone at the table. Sound reinforcement was used with the microphones to provide the presenter’s voice to the remainder of the room without feedback. This technology, called Mix Minus, allows the person talking to be heard from the speakers furthest from them no matter who is speaking in the room.
Audio is routed through a biamp Tesira digital signal processor while a Crestron system on an iPad controls the entire AV system. They also have a feature to stream to outbound participants for a meeting through a private server, keeping everything secure.
BCI continues to work with Suncoast Credit Union on multiple projects throughout Florida.
