Multi-Room Presentation Space
A two-way room multi-functional space has been created that can be used as separate training rooms, each equipped with projectors, electric projection screens, flush mounted ceiling speakers, laptop connectivity, digital signage, voice re-enforcement, IPTV and an iPad for control. The two rooms can then be paired together for larger format presentations and events.
User Testing Suite
A monitoring room with the same functionality as a standard meeting room has additional password protected functionality allowing specific users to operate the room in ‘control room mode’. This gives access to cameras, microphones, screen sharing and tablet mirroring, which allow software engineers to test and monitor use of both new and existing software to ensure continued development and refinement of Auto Trader’s product portfolio.
Room Booking System
All 14 of the meeting rooms are supported by an automated room booking system to manage the assets and encourage best use of the spaces available to staff. This is complemented by integration of a way-finder screen and visitor management.
Digital signage screens with small form factor subscriber players were mounted around the office spaces. These units together with a server PC housed in the data centre allow content to be scheduled and displayed relating to the area and message required.
A satellite and terrestrial IPTV system was installed, comprising a roof-mounted dish with 1 satellite receiver and fully scalable rack mounted IPTV server, integrated with the digital signage in the comms room. This allows a variety of channels to be scheduled to any display, with channel control local to the display over RF cabling.
