DB Results is a digital business consulting and technology company headquartered in downtown Melbourne. Last year DB Results commissioned a presentation space/experience centre, that would occupy a highly visible showroom in a shared ground floor retail and commercial space in its Collins Street address. The space is effectively a ‘fish bowl’ that would provide conspicuous branding opportunities for DB Results as well as be an impressive presentation space for the DB Results sales team. Anric took care of the AV/IT integration.
The showroom features a 2×2 video wall, a projection screen, VR visualisation, control of the screen content via a tablet PC, and a low-profile loudspeaker system.
“The client needed the utmost flexibility in the treatment and display of the visual content,” recalls Anric’s Richard Balaganeshan. “A DB Results sales executive needs to have the ability to call up content on a device and display that on one screen, then stretch that across two, three or four of the in-room displays.”
Anric was keen to explore the versatility of a video-over-IP solution and selected the iMAGsystems Lightning SDVoE product.
The Lightning-powered system proved powerful, yet simple to conceptualise. The 4-in/5-out Lighting design sees a Lightning encoder taking video from the four sources (a PC, two Apple TVs and the WePresent WiPG2000 collaboration system). The encoded signal is transported via an off-the-shelf Netgear 10Gb managed switch to one or more of the five display destinations (the four displays of the video wall and the projector) via a Lightning decoder unit. The system is managed by a cost effective, iPad-hosted Neets Sierra 2 control system.
iMAGsystems supported Anric and the client every step of the way. Richard Balaganeshan: “The iMAGsystems team was very responsive, working with us and the client to ensure we had a stable and effective solution. Chris Smith of iMAGsystems was particularly helpful in writing an API for the system power up/down routine.”
